Does Death Penalty Save Lives? A New Debate
For the first time in a generation, the question of whether the death penalty deters murders has captured the attention of scholars in law and economics, setting off an intense new debate about one of the central justifications for capital punishment.

According to roughly a dozen recent studies, executions save lives. For each inmate put to death, the studies say, 3 to 18 murders are prevented.

The effect is most pronounced, according to some studies, in Texas and other states that execute condemned inmates relatively often and relatively quickly. ...

If punishment/death penalty is a deterrent then why do we require both to be the same solution at the same time?

To deter someone from crime/murder usually requires a logical thought prior to the event. The anticipation of punishment is very seldom a contributing factor. {A} Because of the reason, motive and emotions of the moment. and {B} (if I may add a little Biblical fact) - Because of sin dominion in the individual involved.

The "anticipation" of hell doesn't prevail on sinners to mend their ways and turn to God, does it?
Therefore this punishment is NOT a deterrent to mortals anywhere at anytime.

Prov 11:21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.

Sorry Cityx2, I too believe that the death penalty should be treated as a punishment for crime and also a deterrent to crime as the study has proven. Even God says so in the Bible. Check Romans 13:2-4 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not a TERROR to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be AFRAID of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, BE AFRAID; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

I think God knows the best. Amen!!

Trouble with your conclusion is that those to whom it is a deterrent, do not commit murder. Not because they are deterred but because they are abhorrent of such a crime.

Again, to those who commit murder, it is not a deterrent as can be seen in the crime stats and indeed this article.

Punishment therefore IS punishment to fit the crime, - not to fit the ideological deterrence of bureaucrats!

" Well, some biblical reasons for supporting the death penalty can be found in,
"Rendering To Caesar: A Biblical Perspective On Government"
______

Jesus said, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. (Mar 12:17). He was speaking of paying taxes. He was not contradicting Himself, (love your enemies, be harmless as doves, etc.) saying that our bodies belong to Caesar and therefore we are to judge and kill under Caesar's legislation. Our bodies are the temple of God and are to be kept holy. Although worldly governments are Satan's domain (Mat 4:8-9), the worldly government (Caesar), is ordained by God to maintain order in the world; otherwise all humanity, with the exception of the saints, would be savage, with every atrocity known to man inflicted on others at will. All, except the saints, would participate either aggressively or defensively. The saints of God are commanded to have no part in the slaying of humanity—they are to preach the Gospel to every creature.

In the love of Jesus Christ with prayers

"“the recent evidence of a deterrent effect from capital punishment seems impressive, especially in light of its ‘apparent power and unanimity,’"

The death penalty should be treated as a punishment for crime - NOT a deterrent to crime. And judging by the stats here quoted the deterrent effect is null and void anyway. Crime should be punished and the death penalty should be one of the punishments used by society.

It is interesting to note that "Hell" is not, nor cannot be used as a deterrent to sin. Hell is a punishment for guilt, where remission of sins is not imputed by Christ's righteousness.
