So do we agree that belife in the death panalty as an option dose not make some less christian? also using christ as the reasion for elimating it in the law is the wrong aproch. i don't think canada did so to make there nation more like christ. though i do disagree with canada. some crimes are just to bad, it is not only a deterent but mostly it is punishment. a condemed mans debts can be paid with jesus but not with society at large

i would not like to be a govener and have to make such a decision

I agree that being in agreement with dealth penalty does not make someone less of a Christian. We should err on the side of mercy, not judgement.

The real question here to me is what are we doing to speak the Good News into the lives of others? Are we ministering to the spiritual poor? Serving Christ by serving others? How do we put our love into action to give people hope in Jesus Christ and keep them from commiting these crimes?
