Gil Rugh wrote: Genesis 9:6 gives us the first and simplest direction relating to capital punishment:
â€¢ "Whoever sheds manâ€™s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man."
In this passage, God gives the right of capital punishment to man. If someone commits murder, they are required to die. In the debate over capital punishment, some say, "We do not have the right to take human life, only God does." That is only partly true. Ultimately, the right to take a human life belongs only to God, but God has also chosen to delegate this responsibility to m
"He seems to be the exception that proves the rule," in more ways than one. Just looking at his name and his location you would think he's Catholic. Oh, and he was also appointed by the Democrats, but seems to me we have had a thread on SA where His Unholiness Franny, wants to get into bed with queers. But perhaps, Franny is being two-faced with liberals also. It is said that he said, "same-sex marriage is an â€˜anthropological regressionâ€™" which is quite true by the way. Oh, that quotation came from, http://liberapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Pope_Francis an entertaining for a religious conservative such as myself. So, perhaps this judge is actually reading through Franny's political maneuverings?
I wonder if this is the real John Y.? His Unholiness is not only against the death penalty but now against even long prison terms for murder Human life is nearly meaningless in the Commonwealth countries, e.g. the famous blade runner, Pistorious (sp?) only got 5 years for killing his girl friend in South Africa, and he still might not serve any time in jail! So, you have to attack your own Satanic Pope, q.v., The Papacy.
The Romish church has always had close ties with criminals. Mother Teresa got much of her money from criminals. Catholics are the only ones to think that their sacraments has any efficacy. gangsters of course may say anything to get the last rites. Only God can determine their sincerity. Receiving them will not stop them from going to purgatory, which doesn't exist, that means they only have one other place to go, forever--hell Besides the close relationship of the Romish church and criminal organizations, the church itself may be declared a criminal organization. Roman Catholic Church Being Deconstructed â€“ Declared Criminal. It's about time! This explains why Satan's emissary want even more leniency for killers. Pope Francis blasts life sentences as â€˜hidden death penaltyâ€™ he wants his criminal priests and other minions out of jail as soon as possible.
Gil Rugh wrote: Jesusâ€™ View on Capital Punishment
How did Jesus view capital punishment? Jesus did not give specific instruction concerning it but his meeting with Pilate in John 19 is insightful. When Pilate told Jesus he had the power to release or crucify Him, Jesus said, " â€˜You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from aboveâ€™ " (John 19:11). He did not argue with Pilate about capital punishment or tell him it was wrong. In fact, Jesus recognized Pilateâ€™s power to carry out capital punishment but reminded Pilate that this authority came from God.
Paulâ€™s View on Capital Punishment
Nothings in Paulâ€™s life or letters suggest he did not agree with the right of the government to execute criminals. When he was under arrest and defending himself before Festus, the Roman governor of Judea, Paul said, "If then I am a wrongdoer, and have committed anything worthy of death, I do not refuse to die" (Acts 25:11). In this situation, Paul acknowledges the right of Festus to carry out capital punishment. No debate occurred whether the death penalty was right or not....
Harlot you will find several definitions of "harlot" at this URL. It is getting harder to find an isolated ISBE definition for a word on the Internet. However, at least it is easy to find it at this site - - so far.
They keep forgetting it isn't radicalized Islam, it is the Inadequacy of Islam. I'm glad the Sergeant of Arms, was able to administer some capital punishment on the spot. All Commonwealth countries have banned capital punishment? Pity, because it isn't Biblical, q.v., Rendering To Caesar---A Biblical Perspective On Government One needs a speedy way to send such killers Allah, i.e., Satan as quickly as possible to get their just reward, which isn't 70 virgins.

Hmm, my speech recognition program wasn't working that well! Almost as bad as Google speech recognition after looking the original post over. I hope I fixed it to be readable, anyway.
Yes, I think these pastors are protected by the Constitution and I think they should or others aggressively take a legal stand against this queer's actions. Apparently there are too many Catholics and politically correct people in Houston. Many of you will like the the entire article that was on John Ankerberg's site, ?Inoculate Your Children Against Political Correctness! I found a small portion of it quite good, to wit,
Dr. Tom Snyder wrote: Teach students proper biblical critical thinking tools so they can learn to acquire knowlÂedge and tell what is false and what is true by using logic and by objectively weighing factual evidence gleaned from reliable, credible historical documents and eyewitness testimony.
Teach intellectual and moral absolutes about truth, culture, philosophy, and morality instead of relativistic ideas. Help students use these intellectual and moral absolutes to give meaning and purpose to their lives.
Stress cognitive thinking skills and objective academic knowledge rather than feelings and personal opinions.
Dr. Synder did have some other good points in that section, but I'm running out of space to mention them.
Neither, Mike of NY. I oppose it as stupid, which is really the word, I should have used K.I.S.S., but I was keeping it polite. It's like sending form letters to Congress, not even the staff will read them. So, it isn't green -- got to protect those trees But it might be a conspiracy by the U.S. Postal Service to get more mail flowing. Anyway, I hope this queer mayor (Yes, and no doubt this queer knows that The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin ) at least has a good recycling program.
Huckabee -- The Christian Right Movement is a disaster for the mission of Christians! ' "The Reconstructionist movement and its allies and offshoots, by substituting political and cultural action for the proclamation of the Gospel, by substituting eschatology for soteriology, and by mangling the Gospel itself, have become tools of Romanist political action" (3/02, The Trinity Review).' excerpt from, Notes on Reconstructionism. Huckabee Never for President!
