Jesus would do what Canada did in 1976 and fully completed in 1998. Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

No, it means that Jesusland may, in fact, have very little to do with the values that Jesus espoused and more to do with politics.

so it christianity about certen values you keep or the fact that Jesus died in out place for our sins?

i would say more people understand the grace aspect of christian faith and truly belive in him, in Jesusaland

is there anywhere in the bible where Jesus expresses the opinion that government should abolish the death penalty?
