Also, the death penalty is condoned by God, the author of morality. That being the case, the death penalty can not be immoral.

"Also, the death penalty is condoned by God, the author of morality."

How do you come to that conclusion?

What is wrong with lifetime incarceration? If we as Christians truly believe in God's Omnimpotence, then how can we not allow Him to be the final arbiter of a man's earthly existence.

If a man sits on death Row and is set to be executed on June 15th and so it follows, how do we know it was not God's arbitrary will to reach down and touch this man's heart and save his eternal soul on June 16th!!! We, as mere humans took that out of God's hands.

And lest anyone take me to task for this conclusion, I ask that you recall the story of Saul's conversion.
