Why is Capital Punishment important for nations to practice in terms of justice?

Every nation in the world must practice capital punishment.  The Holy Bible demands the death penalty as an important part of the justice system that nations must practice.

The Roman Catholic Church is in direct rebellion against the Holy Bible in opposing the death penalty.  It is wrong to oppose the death penalty because the Old Testament and the New Testament both demand it as a justice measure of countries.

Why has the Roman Catholic Church gone so wrong on the issue of the death penalty?  It is because the Vatican follows the Pope, rather than the Holy Bible.  The Holy Bible clearly demands the death penalty as a justice system of the courts and of nations.

Sanctity of life is an idea that was created by the Roman Catholic Church.  The Holy Bible does not teach sanctity of human life.  If human life had sanctity, God would not haphazardly kill humans for sin, such as after the Israelite worship of the Golden Calf.  One act of idolatry resulted in God’s direct issue of death as justice against the Chosen People.

Abortion is wrong because it violates the Ten Commandments, not because there is sanctity of life.

Is there pain in Hell?

For over 2,000 years of the history of Christianity, the existence of Hell has been emphasized.  There is a reason for this. The Holy Bible clearly emphasizes the existence of Hell.  But some people in modern day America try to say that Hell does not exist, because a loving god will not allow human beings to suffer.  Nothing could be further from the truth. We are talking about God, who made a simple command:  “Don’t eat the fruit from a tree (of the knowledge of good and evil).” When Adam and Eve violated this simple and plain command, God could have just said, “Forget-about-it!  It’s just a fruit!  I tell ya what.  Just eat the fruit.  I am not going to forbid anything, since I am God and I am a nice, loving guy.”  But God did not do this.  God gave Adam and Eve capital punishment.  In other words, the violation of eating a fruit was death – real, physical death.  We are talking about a supreme being who has no respect for human life.  There is no sanctity of human life with God.  Otherwise, he would not have taken the life for Adam and Eve for something that seems so trivial as eating a fruit.  Yeah, he made that illegal, but it seems like the kind of violation like telling a white lie.  Lying is sin, ain’t it?  But white lie is so small and it does make the other person feel good.  So, in the whole scheme of the world and big creation of God, how significant can eating a piece of fruit be?  But God gave Adam and Eve capital punishment – literally, a death sentence – for eating a piece of fruit, just because it violated God’s Law, which is simply put “whatever God tells us not to do.”  So, we can see a picture of God, here.  God was not being cruel, just to be kind. God was being cruel to be cruel, and that is the prerogative of God as the Supreme Being.  After Adam, every human being is born with original sin, and thus condemned to eternal damnation. Doesn’t this beg the question:  If God just said – “It’s okay, Adam and Eve. I love you, and I forgive you.  You don’t have to die.  I change my mind.” – then, Adam and Eve would not have had to die.  No other human being would have been born with sin and be, de facto, sentenced to eternal damnation.  But obviously, there is more to God than the simple statement:  “God is love.”  God is far more complex than that, and that is a part of the awesomeness of God.  God is not a simpleton or a one-dimensional being that some Christians reduce Him to. God is far greater, far more awesome.  And Hell is something that shows how complex God is.  We are talking about a everlasting, forever place, whose primary purpose is eternal torture with absolutely no possibility of redemption or salvation (after the Second Coming of Christ and the Final Judgment).  How could a loving God create such a place? No redemption!  Can you imagine that?  After the Second Coming of Christ, there is no chance for you to repent and get out of Hell.  Or if you are hit by a truck tomorrow and die.  You have no chance after that to get out of the eternal damnation in Hell.  Obviously, if you think that you are headed to this eternal torture chamber with absolutely zero possibility of redemption, you would like to know what such a place will be like.  I understand.  To answer your question in simple terms, the answer would be “Yes.”  There will be a lot of pain in Hell.  In fact, God will give all the people who will go to eternal damnation in Hell a new resurrected body, so that they can experience the pain of burning for eternity without ever burning up.  There is absolutely no light at the end of the tunnel.  It will be torture after torture after torture … forever!  Call it “Operation Infinite Justice of God”.  Imagine being waterboarded for eternity in Quantico or Guantanamo Bay.  That’s nothing compared to what’s in store in Hell.  It is so horrible there that Jesus Christ, who is God, who actually made the place, describes Hell in this way:  “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:42). Have you seen a Rambo-like Marine or Special Forces Delta commando weep like a baby and gnash his teeth?  Well, if you go to Hell, you will see such a thing, for eternity.  Oh, I guess we are forgetting something, here, aren’t we?  You will be in so much pain in Hell, and you will be weeping like a baby and gnashing your teeth that you will not be able to divert your attention away from your own pain to the person near you.  Everyone is suffering infinite pain in his or her aloneness for eternity in Hell.  So, you can be next to someone, but you will be focused on your own pain. Hell is an eternal torture chamber that the God of the Bible has designed, and you can flip through the Gospels to see what kind of people go there.  Make a checklist and make sure you don’t end up in Hell.  It’s a lot more important than applying for a job or a promotion.

Did Jesus Christ ever threaten people’s lives?

Many Christians today are influenced by humanistic, secular value system of unconditional love and acceptance, regardless of what people do or reject. Thus, they project onto Jesus Christ of the Bible and history their secular, humanistic ideals of unconditional love.  Jesus Christ never loved unconditionally. Jesus Christ gave salvation only to those who accepted Him as their personal Savior and Christ rejected and condemned those who did not accept Him as their personal LORD and Savior. Despite what the Bible shows, many Christians today are blinded by the secular, humanistic worldview that they unwittingly are a part of and unconsciously endorse. But it is important to read the Bible and see what the Bible actually teaches. Humans can err and go away from the Bible. It happened to Adam and Eve, and it could happen to you.  The answer to the question – “Did Jesus Christ ever threaten people’s lives?” – shows whether you are influenced by secular, humanistic worldview or if you are submitting to the Bible and Bible’s authority. Some like to say that God in the Old Testament threatened and punished, but Jesus Christ in the New Testament just loved unconditionally. That just is not true. Christ Jesus never loved (or loves) unconditionally. This is nowhere more clear than when Jesus Christ threatened people with death, if they do not repent.  Jesus Christ says in Luke 13:4-5:  “Or those 18 that the tower in Siloam fell on and killed–do you think they were more sinful than all the people who live in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well!” The New Testament is clear on showing Jesus Christ as threatening people with death if they do not repent. In the Age of Grace, God does and will kill people physically as divine punishment for not repenting. Thus, cancer and terminal illnesses that people get and die from pre-maturely can be seen as punishment from God for sinning/not repenting. There are exceptions (Job), but the exceptions prove the rule. Bible is the Truth, and God (Jesus Christ) is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
