SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: The Death Penalty

Every day on the sidewalk people tell us to do nothing, go home, shut up, leave them alone even though the life of a child hangs in the balance. EVERY DAY. There is a real culture of death in the United States and it begins and ends with the abortion agenda. Why consider execution for the child when there are real options? Selfishness of either or both the ‘moms’ and coercers. Someone is paying to get out of parenthood.

On the sidewalk

On the sidewalk we are not interested in the abortion excuse unless you are truly repentant; the reason why I say that is because the abortion-minded woman and coercers want us to feel sympathy for their situation so they can free themselves from the responsibility of murder. Everyone wants to play the victim. We are interested in saving the life of a baby that had no choice in bad decision making but has to deal with the abortion consequence. The innocent unborn baby is the real victim. Abortion-minded women and their coercers need JESUS, not abortion:

“I learned to accept that while sin may cause evil, nothing my baby did was sinful.” Read the rest here.

The ongoing whining of pro-aborts, the ‘moms’ and the coercers that outright lie about prolife witnessing is abominable.

They say we scream; rather we speak loudly – and without profanity – to be heard from the the constant roar of traffic. It’s loud out there.

They say we call abortion-minded women murderers; the truth is that we don’t call them anything but ‘mom’.

They say we are violent; but the truth is that we are flipped off, screamed at with a string of profanities, called names, cars aimed at us, charged at…and that’s just the tip of the abortion iceberg.

Then, truth be told, it’s the accusers that do what we are faulted for

What a bunch of liars and hypocrites. EXAMPLE: If your born child suddenly started to bolt out into oncoming traffic, would you want the nearest person to pull him/her to safety OR would you rather that person stand and do nothing?

I do agree that not all prolife sidewalk witnesses are the same. Some are more intent on spreading their doctrine rather than save lives. Real prolifers do the work of the Good Samaritan rather than spread hate.

QUESTION: If someone murdered your child, would you want the death penalty for the murderer or a life sentence? What if YOU murdered your child?

Exactly.

The Prolife Christian & the Death Penalty

After a recent arrest of an abortion ‘doctor’ in Philadelphia (Dr. Kermit Gosnell), Prolifers have come out from the woodwork screaming ‘DEATH PENALTY’. True, this doctor did horrible gruesome things to children and women, but who is in charge of Life and death?

It’s hard to see people that say prolife but have a different view when the rubber meets the road. All Life is sanctified and given by God only and it is up to Him when death is necessary. These ‘Moderate Prolifers’ are the fair-weather friends of Life.

Many, many Evangelical Christians are in favor of the Death Penalty, even some that I know personally. If we give man the authority to kill, what have we to preach about? Life when it’s proper and lawful? How can that be when the Bible says ‘Thou shalt NOT kill’? This is the BIG question when we have to recognize the law of the land; but is it still wrong? YES.

Does God judge through man?

Yes, in Genesis 9:6 He plainly said: “Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man.’

What is being taught in the pulpit, Life or death?

Christians love to bring up the Old Testament ‘eye for an eye’ mentality but the reality is that we are in a new covenant WITH Christ, ‘you shall love your neighbor as yourself’.

Scripture balances Scripture.

Confusing? No, if God judges a man or woman to death, He will use whom He will use. However, if a man or woman takes the Life another, Leviticus 19:18 says, ‘You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.’ Also,  ‘For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.’

God is LORD. Just God. Through Him justice comes:

  • At the altar – for forgiveness and restoration
  • At the ‘woodshed’ – those he loves he chastises; sickness, finances
  • Through His mercy – die prematurely

Christians should never believe in the death penalty BUT accept it as law, as Scripture says in Romans 13:

‘Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.’
