(Agree/Disagree) Please state why. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to answer my question :D
Some argue that capital punishment protects the innocent, promotes justice, and deters serious crime. Others insist that it is immoral—a way of responding to violence with more violence and far inferior to the nobler task of rehabilitating criminals, helping them to become useful members of society.
In the political arena in this debate is especially intense, and religious leaders have not hesitated to get involved. You may wonder, though, ‘Does the Bible have anything to say on the subject of capital punishment?’ In fact, it does.Ps. 37:10, 11.
For instance, in many countries their prison systems has been criticized for executing under 2 percent of its death-row criminals each year. More of them die from natural causes than from execution. There have also been charges of prejudice—as statistics suggest that a murderer is more likely to receive a death sentence if the victim was white than if the victim was black.
Human governments have certainly executed for the sake of justice many times. But it must be admitted that they have also been guilty of misusing it. I know that in the near future all this will be done away with and a new Government will rule with justice. Daniel 2:44
