    ultimately, it's all up to God

    if the person in question is one of the flock, I trust that Christ will gather them in

    True. But you won't offer them the benefit of time to seak peace for their transgression(s)?

    It seems retribution is more your style.

    which is why i asked:
    Ahh, so you think it is reasonable to say that GOD sent a prophet to the King to tell him to not serve justice per the law but to be unjust and break the law this time.
    Guess that just law wasn't so iron clad to be obeyed after all.

    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
    They already know monsters exist.

    I wouldn't call such justice under the auspices of penance. (Re: penitentiary).

    Seems you want to send the unredeemed to hell expediently as possible i.e. unmitigated retribution.

    No ... though they would have plenty of time *prior* to receiving the death penalty. BTW, I only advocate the death penalty for those who actually commit crimes that harm others ... such as rapists, child molesters and murderers.

    You may never know that for certain. In effect, you're playing God.
