Christians need to think through this life-and-death issue.
Whether the death penalty is right or wrong has been hotly debated for many decades and will probably continue to be debated for many more. What has not received much discussion, however, is the matter of how the death penalty should be applied. How can biblical guidelines on the death penalty ensure justice and fairness? What should be the church s position on capital punishment?
