    Knight, remember when he tried to say that since Jesus equated hate with murder, that those who are pro-death penalty ought to call for the execution of haters?

    Yet he supports jail for murderers, but not for haters. And he wouldn't even address whether the covetous should be made to pay restitution. And every time either was pointed out to him, he would say, "This thread is about the death penalty. Stay on topic."

    Ah... Good times!

    For God is just dealing with David the way He did and as He was with Paul.

    So are you now changing your stance and arguing that God was against the death penalty in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament?

    Then why not just answer this question, Freak?:

    David was a murderer and an adulterer. Both crimes were punishable by death, but God forgave David when he repented, and did not demand David be put to death.

    Is it therefore reasonable to argue that God abolished the death penaly altogether when He forgave David? Is that reasonable?
    Yes or No?

    Nope. God is just, correct???? Well, in dealing with David, He was just. That is all I'm saying.

    WE know God is just in dealing with people. He was just in dealing with David. Do you have a problem with this?

    This is a illogical statement because I have answered your questions. You just didn't like the answers!

    The choices were yes or no. Your "answer" didn't apply to the question.

    God was just in this, was He not?

    God was just in dealing with David! Christ rescued Paul which clearly shows, that under the New Covenant, the death penalty via the State, was not something Christ was in favor of!

    Paul was a murderer, Tye, why did Jesus not call for his death since he was a mass murderer?

    I asked you a question..either put up or shut up--Paul was a murderer, Tye, why did Jesus not call for his death since he was a mass murderer?

    That is no way to grow, Freak. You'll stagnate, and become luke warm.[/color]
    I love and serve Jesus and have been since I was a teenager. So, it appears you know nothing about me and my walk with God.
