Capital Punishment vs. Abortion

I have written on capital punishment and the need for it, as well as the dangers of abortion. The usual rebuttal to the idea of murderers and rapists (there would be no repeat offenders in the area of rape if we applied God’s Law) being executed for their crimes is “that is just barbaric” or “what if the accused is actually innocent?” These sound like valid points (if you do not value the life of the victim) yet upon further questioning, those same people who apply these rebuttals usually do not see abortion as being “barbaric” and it does not matter to them that the baby in the mother’s womb is “innocent”. Can we say “hypocritical”? Two things I would like to analyze with capital punishment and abortion: 1) Capital punishment causes the guilty to pay and the life of the victim to be honored, as well as takes preventative measures for future murders and rapes (fewer victims) 2) Abortion causes the innocent to suffer and the guilty to be praised (exercising your right to choose, although, the babies “choice” does not seem to be that important). What are your thoughts on this subject? I have started a conversation with a group of people who are extreme anti-capital punishment yet extreme pro abortion. I will post the findings of the discussion at a later date.

  1. Talk about contradictions erik. I quote u from another blog “We are all born enemies of God because of our sin nature which we inherit from our parents.” Yet in this blog u say “it does not matter to them that the baby in the mother’s womb is “innocent”” if its inherited sin from its parents how is it innocent? Btw I am not agreeing or disagreeing with ur blog I am stating ur contradictions that u countinuously write. You want people to believe u yet with contradictions, repeatitiveness and unreliable sources, how can u expect to help anyone.

    • From a legal perspective, children are innocent yet they are not being protected by the law. From God’s perspective, they are sinners and that sin nature will manifest itself. There is no contradiction, only you searching extremely hard to make a mountain out of a grain of sand.

      • Erik Erik Erik. Again your denying the truth mate. This is a blog for Christians right and Christians obey gods law so the fact is ur contradicting yourself as u always do. It is in fact you who is building a mountain out of a mole hill. The whole blog is a big contradiction. It’s quite funny to watch you stumble into the same mistakes.

      • The fact that people choose not to obey God’s laws does not negate Them. Like the law of gravity, whether you believe in it or not, it still exists and for every action that you take, there is a consequence. I have not contradicted myself one single time. If I have, please show some proof instead of just empty accusations.
