Death Penalty

There are certain crimes deserve death penalty.

Gen 9:6,Whoever sheds man’s blood, 

By man his blood shall be shed, 

For in the image of God 

He made man.”

Note: Murder is one the heinous crimes that deserves death penalty. Terrorism is killing of many and definitely deserves death penalty. Warmongering is mass murder and it deserves death penalty. God institutes death penalty for specific crimes. Death penalty is established by the law of God. Whoever opposes the law of God opposes God. If an egg cannot hit a rock, whoever opposes God is committing suicide and asking for eternal destruction.

Jam 4:12, “There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?” Europe and some phony humanists want to abolish capital punishment.

Jam 4:4, “You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” To follow the fashionable view or practice of the world in opposing death penalty is making oneself an enemy of God. 

Laws are necessary because there are lawbreakers. Penalty is necessary when people violates a law.

1.   God instituted death penalty.

Gen 2:17,“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Note: Die in Hebrew is muwth which means to die (as penalty), be put to death, to be destroyed; - it occurs about 835 times in the Old Testament. Actually the sin of Adam and Eve was not eating the forbidden fruit; it was disobedience of God’s Word. God rules absolutely and supremely, anyone who opposes God’s rule by violation of His Word must surely die. Eating the forbidden fruit was a secondary sin; disobedience of God’s Word was the primary sin. All sins come from disobedience of God’s Word.

Exd 19:12,“You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying: Take heed to yourselves that you do not go up to the mountain or touch its base. Whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death.”

Note: God has sets bounds for human behavior. There are lines you must not cross. Violation of God’s divinity and ignoring His Word is so evil and sinful that whoever disobeys must surely be put to death. Death is the highest penalty. No one can violate God and get away with it.

Gen 9:6,“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for God made man in His own image.”

Note: Shed in Hebrew is shaphak which means to pour, pour out, spill; - it occurs about 115 times in the Old Testament. Blood is so precious, unlike water, cannot be poured out without cause. To shed blood means to kill or commit murder. God Himself decreed, ordered, and instituted death penalty. Why? Because when man sheds the blood another man, he destroys and violates the image of God. Image in Hebrew is tselem which means likeness of resemblance, representation, model, appearance; - it occurs 17 times in the Old Testament. Since God is Spirit, the image of God could not mean the physical appearance of God. How is God like?

To those liberal theologians and false preachers who say that death penalty was divine penalty for the Old Testament, in the New Testament, under grace it should be abolished, this is God’s answer:

Mat 15:4,“For God commanded, saying: Honor your father and your mother; and, He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.”

Mar 7:10,“For Moses said: Honor your father and your mother; and, He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.”

Note: Jesus Christ Himself reaffirms and validates the death penalty. If you oppose death penalty, you oppose the authority of Jesus Christ.

Act 25:11,“For if I am an offender, or have committed anything deserving of death, I do not object to dying; but if there is nothing in these things of which these men accuse me, no one can deliver me to them. I appeal to Caesar.”

Note: Even under the Roman law (Roman empire was cruel), you could not put a man to death if he had not committed anything deserving of death.

Act 28:18,“Who, when they had examined me, wanted to let me go, because there was no cause for putting me to death.”

Note: Paul said if he had committed anything deserving of death, he would not object to dying. Paul is the Apostle who wrote most of the Epistles explaining the truth of the Gospel and the Christian faith. The New Testament also supports death penalty.

Rom 1:32,“Who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

Note: What such things which are deserving death?

Rom 1:26-32,“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

Rom 13:4,“For he is God's minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”

Note: God’s minister (government) is an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. The nations that abolish death penalty bear the sword in vain and unfit to be God’s minister.

Jer 26:15,“But know for certain that if you put me to death, you will surely bring innocent blood on yourselves, on this city, and on its inhabitants; for truly the LORD has sent me to you to speak all these words in your hearing.”

Note: Know for sure if a government puts an innocent person to death, it will bring innocent blood on itself, on its nation and its inhabitants.

Est 4:11,“All the king's servants and the people of the king's provinces know that any man or woman who goes into the inner court to the king, who has not been called, he has but one law: put all to death, except the one to whom the king holds out the golden scepter, that he may live. Yet I myself have not been called to go in to the king these thirty days.”

Note: In the ancient Persia, death penalty was carried out on those who violated the king’s inner court.

Ezr 7:26,Whoever will not observe the law of your God and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily on him, whether it be death, or banishment, or confiscation of goods, or imprisonment.”

Note: Based on the nature and degree of violation of the law, King of Persia gave four kinds of sentence: death, banishment, confiscation of goods, imprisonment. It was obvious from the ancient practice, not all crimes were punished by death.

Isa 40:25,“To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal? says the Holy One.”

A.      God is Holy.

Holy in Hebrew is qadowsh  which means sacred, set apart, free from defilement and impurity, an attribute of God as abhorring every kind of impurity physical and moral; - it occurs about 116 times in the Old Testament. 

Lev 19:2,“Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.” The term ‘holy’ occurs 652 times in RSV (Revised Standard Version). 

Mar 1:24, “And he cried out: What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” 

Jesus Christ is the Holy One of God.  The Holy One of God must destroy demons and the wicked.

Luk 1:35,“And the angel said to her: The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.” 

The Son of God is holy.  There is no one like Jesus Christ who is God who became Man.

Jhn 6:69,“And we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.” 

Jesus Christ is the Holy One of God.

Jhn 17:11,“Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.” 

God is Holy Father.  For Catholics to call pope holy father is a great sin and blasphemy.

Act 1:8,“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” The Spirit of God or the Spirit of Christ is the Holy Spirit. 

Rev 4:8,“The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”

The Triune God is holy, holy, holy. Things connected or belonging to God are also holy, such as the Holy Scriptures, holy angels, holy prophets, holy apostles, holy temple, holy faith, holy calling, holy conduct, holy nation, holy priesthood, holy kiss, holy hands, the holy city, etc. The Holy God institutes death penalty for murderers.

B.  God is righteous.

Psa 11:7,“For the LORD is righteous, He loves justice; upright men will see His face.”

Note: Justice originates from the righteous God. The righteous God loves justice and hates injustice. Righteous in Hebrew is tsaddiyq which means just, lawful, right, correct, just in maintaining the right and in dispensing justice; - it occurs about 206 times in the Old Testament. The term ‘righteous’ occurs 303 times in the NIV (New International Version). Justice in Hebrew is tsĕdaqah which means righteousness, righteousness of God's attribute, justification, truthfulness, rectitude, doing things justly; - it occurs about 157 times in the Old Testament. Righteousness is related to justice. The righteous God loves justice. There is no righteousness without justice. 

The evil prime minister of Japan is the most deceitful liar of the 21st century.  He called Japanese soldiers who killed in the war of aggression as fighting for peace. He is so distorted, crooked, corrupt, diabolical by calling justice injustice, righteousness unrighteousness, truth lie, light darkness, peace war, etc.

Psa 7:9,“O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.” 

If righteousness is the heart, justice is the act. A man keeps his promise because he is righteous; a man is not righteous because he keeps his promise. 

Psa 15:2,“He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart.” Righteousness is related to truth, there cannot be righteousness without the truth.  Truth is the foundation of righteousness.

Psa 119:137, “Tsadhe. Righteous are you, O LORD, and your laws are right.” 

What is righteous is also right.  What is right must be righteous.

Psa 145:17,“The LORD is righteous in all His ways and loving toward all He has made.” 

Everything that the Lord does is righteous. 

Pro 13:5,“The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked bring shame and disgrace.” 

Falsehood is not compatible with righteousness. 

Pro 21:12,“The Righteous One takes note of the house of the wicked and brings the wicked to ruin.” God is the Righteous One. 

Isa 24:16,“From the ends of the earth we hear singing: Glory to the Righteous One. But I said, I waste away, I waste away! Woe to me! The treacherous betray! With treachery the treacherous betray!” 

Glory to God, the Righteous One.  Dalai Lama, Lee Teng-hui, Chen Shui-bian and Ma Ying-jeou have treacherously betrayed China. The treacherous betray. The evil do evil deeds.

Jer 12:1, “You are always righteous, O LORD, when I bring a case before you. Yet I would speak with you about your justice: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the faithless live at ease?” God is always righteous. Dan 9:14,“The LORD did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the LORD our God is righteous in everything He does; yet we have not obeyed Him.” The Lord our God is righteous in everything He does. 

Mat 23:28,“In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.” Hypocrisy and wickedness are not compatible with righteousness. 

Jhn 17:25,“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent Me.” Our God is Righteous Father, the Father of Lord Jesus. 

Act 22:14,“Then he said: The God of our fathers has chosen you to know His will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from His mouth.” Jesus Christ is the Righteous One. 

2Ti 4:8,“Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.” Our Lord Jesus is the Righteous Judge who will reward those who have longed for His appearing. 

1Pe 3:18,“For Christ died for sins once for all, the Righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,” Jesus Christ is the Righteous who died for the unrighteous. 

1Jo 2:1,“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” Our Advocate Jesus Christ is the Righteous One. The Righteous God institutes death penalty for murderers.

C.  God is good.

Psa 73:1,“A Psalm of Asaph. Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart!”

Note: Good in Hebrew is towb means pleasant, agreeable, excellent, kind, upright; - it occurs about 559 times in the Old Testament. God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.

1Ch 19:13,“Be strong, and let us show ourselves courageous for the sake of our people and for the cities of our God; and may the LORD do what is good in His sight.”

Note: The word ‘good’ used in 1Ch 19:13 is the same original word used in Psa 73:1. Good or bad is not determined by man or the opinion of man. Man does not define the standard of good or bad. What is good in God’s sight is good. What is bad in God’s sight is bad. What pleases the Lord is good. What displeases the Lord is bad. The Lord always does what is good in His sight.

Psa 143:10,“Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.”

Note: The Spirit of God is good.

Mar 10:18,“And Jesus said to him: Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.”

Note: Jesus rejects the idea that people think He is good because He is a good man. No one is good except God alone. Jesus is good not because He is a good man; Jesus is good because He is God.

Jhn 10:11,“I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”

Note: Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd who died for us. The Good God institutes death penalty for murderers.

Murderer is a deviant human being, a deviant from the image of God, God who is Holy, Righteous and Good. Murder is abnormal, not normal as some liberal pseudo-scholars hold. Death penalty was instituted by necessity to deal with the monstrous sin of mankind, killing its own.

Murder or killing a man without cause is so outrageous and evil that it must be warned and stopped. Death penalty serves as an effective warning.

Gen 26:11,“So Abimelech charged all his people, saying: He who touches this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.” American jury system is so flawed that proves itself repeatedly incredible and unbelievable. Why the mother would make so many lies about her dead 2-year old daughter if she was not guilty anyway? Many murderers escaped human kangaroo courts in this world; they would not and could not escape the judgment of God. A murderer deserves death penalty and must be executed.

2.      Death penalty is necessary.

It is important to know that Israel at that time was under theocracy, some death penalties may seem harsh, and not applicable to a secular state. Theocracy is different from any form of government. What is normal under theocracy may not be normal under other form of government. Furthermore, there is no such a thing called Christian nation. A nation may claim, but no nation on earth is a Christian nation. You cannot force Christian principles on a pagan population. Besides the church does not carry out death penalty. However, death penalty still applies and should apply to certain crimes even if that secular state does not believe in God. A civilized nation is obligated to carry out death penalty and deter crimes worthy of death. Death penalty is not necessarily retributive. Where there is killer and murderer, death penalty is necessary. If there is no killer or murderer, then there no need of death penalty.

Gen 4:10,“And He said: What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground.”

Note: God always says to every murderer: What have you done? The voice of the victim’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. Do you know the innocent blood cries out to God? God hears the cries of the innocent blood. The Holy, Righteous and Good God must do something for the innocent. So God instituted death penalty for murderers.

If you watch all the TV news and reports on how companies and individuals manufacture drugs, food and drink with high content of toxic and harmful and deadly materials and additives, you would not dare to eat or drink anything! This appears to be a national emergency more dangerous and deadly than SARS because it is intentionally caused and created by wicked people infected by incurable capitalistic greed. Just as China has demonstrated its abilities in dealing with natural disasters, I am sure China is fully capable in dealing with such man-made disaster. It is hoped Chinese government will prosecute and execute any responsible people or groups of people who manufacture and sell toxic and harmful products in the form of drug, food, drink, etc. It is high time to eliminate those mass murderers who violate the law boldly for the sake of high profits. Perhaps mass execution is necessary to stop and eliminate this evil deed infected by capitalistic greed. If corrective action is not taken promptly and effectively to stop those mass killers, the consequences would be disastrous of unimaginable magnitude and unthinkable calamity and catastrophe. It would be like committing suicide. When you have internal enemies like those deliberate killers, you do not need external enemies who are at work to destroy China.

Deu 21:21,“Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall put away the evil from among you, and all Israel shall hear and fear.”

Note: Death penalty puts fear to evildoers, life imprisonment does not. All people shall hear and fear of death penalty to refrain from committing murder.

(A).   Killing a man.

Exd 21:12,“He who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death.

Lev 24:17,“Whoever kills any man shall surely be put to death.”

Lev 24:21,“And whoever kills an animal shall restore it; but whoever kills a man shall be put to death.”

Num 35:16,“But if he strikes him with an iron implement, so that he dies, he is a murderer; the murderer shall surely be put to death.”

Num 35:17,“And if he strikes him with a stone in the hand, by which one could die, and he does die, he is a murderer; the murderer shall surely be put to death.”

Num 35:18,“Or if he strikes him with a wooden hand weapon, by which one could die, and he does die, he is a murderer; the murderer shall surely be put to death.”

Note: Killing a man shall surely be put to death, it does not matter using what means or weapon.

Num 35:30,“Whoever kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the testimony of witnesses; but one witness is not sufficient testimony against a person for the death penalty.”

Note: Death penalty is serious and the evidence of murder must be sufficient.

(B).   Killing a parent.

Exd 21:15,“And he who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.”

Note: Killing a parent shall surely be put to death.

(C).   Kidnapping and slavery.

Exd 21:16,“He who kidnaps a man and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, shall surely be put to death.”

Note: Kidnapping and selling a man as a slave shall surely be put to death. Japanese leaders are so evil that Japanese soldiers kidnapped Chinese and Korean young women and made them sex slaves but with beautiful name as "comfort women."  An evil and dirty female Japanese official said it was necessary in war time to have sex slaves. Would it not be nice if she becomes a sex slave of American soldiers stationed in Japan to be gang raped 178 times a day? 

(D).   Cursing a parent.

Exd 21:17,“And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.”

Lev 20:9,“For everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him.”

Note: Cursing in Hebrew is qalal which means to make despicable, treat with contempt, bring contempt or dishonor, disgrace, execrate, bring a curse upon, bring to contempt; - it occurs about 82 times in the Old Testament. He who curses his parent shall surely be put to death.

(E).   Killing by owner of dangerous animal.

Exd 21:28-29,“If an ox gores a man or a woman to death, then the ox shall surely be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be acquitted. But if the ox tended to thrust with its horn in times past, and it has been made known to his owner, and he has not kept it confined, so that it has killed a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned and its owner also shall be put to death.”

Note: Even today there are people who keep deadly dogs which kill people; the dangerous animal owner should be put to death.

(F).   Having sex with an animal.

Exd 22:19,“Whoever lies with an animal shall surely be put to death.”

Lev 20:15,“If a man mates with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you shall kill the animal.”

Lev 20:16,“If a woman approaches any animal and mates with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood is upon them.”

Note: Bestiality is such a despicable crime; death penalty will deter such deviant behavior.

(G). Profaning the Sabbath.

Exd 31:14-15,“You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.

Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.”

Exd 35:2,“Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh day shall be a holy day for you, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it shall be put to death.”

Note: Keeping the Sabbath was strictly a commandment for the Jews to observe. Even today the Jewish state is no longer ruled under theocracy, it would not be applicable to a Jewish citizen. Christians are never told to keep the Sabbath or any day.

(H).   Offering profane fire.

Lev 16:1,“Now the LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered profane fire before the LORD, and died.”

Note: This was applicable strictly to the descendants of Aaron. This is no longer applicable because the Jewish state no longer practices offering of sacrifices. Jesus Christ was the Lamb of God who died for sinners.

(I).   Offering human sacrifice.

Lev 20:2,“Again, you shall say to the children of Israel: Whoever of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who dwell in Israel, who gives any of his descendants to Molech, he shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones.”

Note: Offering human sacrifice is a pagan practice. Even today in a civilized nation, human sacrifice should be punished by death.

(J).   Committing adultery.

Lev 20:10,“The man who commits adultery with another man's wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.”

Note: In a secular state, theocratic punishment cannot be applied. Death penalty for adultery would be too harsh for any nation. Particular in the West, probably more than half of the population would be eliminated.

(K).   Having sex with his father’s wife.

Lev 20:11,“The man who lies with his father's wife has uncovered his father's nakedness; both of them shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”

Note: Even this is a despicable act; death penalty may not apply if both are willing and consensual.

(L).   Having sex with his daughter-in-law.

Lev 20:12,“If a man has sex with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death. They have committed perversion. Their blood shall be upon them.”

Note: Having sex with one’s daughter-in-law is a perversion. Although this is a despicable crime, death penalty would not be appropriate if both are willing or if one is forced. Remember, Mosaic law does not apply to pagans.

(M).   Committing homosexuality.

Lev 20:13,“If a man has sex with a male as he has sex with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”

Note: Homosexuality (the practice of male having sex with male, female having sex with female) is abomination. In a secular world homosexuality is not punishable by death, in particular if both are willing and consenting adults. Although Mosaic law cannot apply to pagans, but the New Testament still prohibits Christians to commit homosexual acts. Obama is the first American president who endorses homosexuality and supports legalization of same-sex marriage. If you elect and support politicians and officials who advocate and support homosexuality and same-sex marriage, you share their sins. This is not my judgment, it is God's judgment. The Roman Catholic Church pope is a hypocrite who says, "Who am I to judge?"

(N).   Being a medium or having spirits.

Lev 20:27,“A man or a woman who is a medium, or who has familiar spirits, shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be upon them.”

Note: Under religious freedom, this primitive and evil practice of a man or a woman being a medium or having spirits is not treated with death penalty. However, if this evil practice causes harm or financial loss to anyone, the medium should be punished. It is wrong to consult astrologers, etc. as Nancy Reagan did.

(O).   Whoever blasphemes the name of the Lord.

Lev 24:16,“And whoever blasphemes the name of the LORD shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall certainly stone him, the stranger as well as him who is born in the land. When he blasphemes the name of the LORD, he shall be put to death.”

Note: This Mosaic law does not apply to pagans. The church does not have authority to put people to death. The church can excommunicate anyone who blasphemes the name of the Lord. Many Americans have a bad cultural practice of saying "Jesus Christ" whenever they encounter something undesirable - that is blasphemy or using the name of the Lord in vain.

(P).   False prophet.

Deu 13:5,“But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has spoken in order to turn you away from the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of bondage, to entice you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So you shall put away the evil from your midst.”

Note: Under religious freedom in a secular world, false prophet is not put to death. However, a false prophet who makes false prophecy regarding the end of the world or makes financial gain by misleading the people shall be punished. Christians should not consult or follow false prophets. Robert Schuller and others are false prophets and false preachers because they preach the false gospel called prosperity gospel. False prophets proclaim false doctrines or teachings in the name of God.

(Q)Would not seek the Lord.

2Ch 15:13,“And whoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.”

Note: Under theocracy, whoever would not seek the Lord God of Israel was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. Under grace dispensation, you have a choice. Even if you choose not to believe in Jesus Christ, you will not be put to death; but you will die in your sins and suffer eternal death in hell.

3.    Death penalty is not cruel.

Murder of the innocent is cruel. Taking the precious life of a person is cruel. Here are some examples of cruelty

A little girl was raped repeatedly and killed, her body was dumped in Nevada desert, and her body was exposed to natural elements until her skeleton was discovered and found.

Parents bought big insurance policy for their children, killed them to collect insurance payout.

Girl was raped and killed; her body was cut off in several pieces stored in refrigerator.

A 90 year old woman was raped, killed, robbed, and her house was burned to cover up the evidence.

The tragedy at Virginia Tech University shocked the American and the world community, where the 23 years old student Seung-Hui shot 32 persons and then committed suicide.

The Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in California in the late 1960s. He was found guilty of conspiracy to commit the Tate/LaBianca murders carried out by members of the group at his instruction. He was convicted of the murders through the joint-responsibility rule, which makes each member of a conspiracy guilty of crimes his fellow conspirators commit in furtherance of the conspiracy's object.

The list of cruel murders you can find out in old newspapers, too numerous to mention and plenty on the Internet.

Murder is most uncivilized. Murder is most brutal. Murder attacks and intends to destroy human civilization. The idea that advanced civilization must abolish death penalty is false and fatal. All advanced civilizations must abolish murder or unlawful killing. If there is no murder, death penalty would not be necessary. If there is no sentence of death penalty, there will be no execution.

All crimes are personal, committed by the individual, and individually held responsible.

Deu 24:16,“Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall children be put to death for their fathers; a person shall be put to death for his own sin.”

2Ki 14:6,“But the children of the murderers he did not execute, according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, in which the LORD commanded, saying: Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall children be put to death for their fathers; but a person shall be put to death for his own sin.”

2Ch 25:4,“However he did not execute their children, but did as it is written in the Law in the Book of Moses, where the LORD commanded, sayingThe fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall the children be put to death for their fathers; but a person shall die for his own sin.”

Note: God makes it clear of personal responsibility for death penalty. The parents shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall the children be put to death for their parents; but a person shall die for his/her own sin. The ancient Chinese imperial decree of executing 9 clans for the crime of one is un-Scriptural and unfair and cruel.

4.    Death penalty is execution of justice.

The question is not whether a nation has the highest number of executions, the question is whether the murderers are worthy of death. If there is no murder, there is no need of death penalty. If no one is sentenced to death penalty, then there will be no execution. You do not execute a man for stealing $10, but a nation should execute a corrupt official or individual who steals or defrauds $10 million or more. Why? Most people do not earn $1 million in their lifetime. The high or low number of executions is not the issue, the issue is whether a murderer is executed or not. The issue is how many murders have been committed, and how many executions have been carried out. If you have low occurrence of murders, you should have low occurrence of executions. If you have high occurrence of crimes worthy of death, then you should have high occurrence of executions. Whoever opposes execution of justice is in favor of injustice. Those who are lenient to murderers and killers are perverting justice. It is a perversion of justice that a killer or mass killer sentenced to death in America can live on for many years continuously making appeals and appeals without end.

Deu 16:19,“You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous.”

Note: To pervert justice is to stretch or bend justice. To show partiality is to discriminate. To take a bribe is to commit corruption. Execution of death penalty is not murder, killing of an innocent is. To call execution of murderer killing is to bend justice, to twist the fact.

Jhn 18:31,“Then Pilate said to them: You take Him and judge Him according to your law. Therefore the Jews said to him: It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death,”

Note: Whether a criminal is guilty or not should be judged according to the law. The laws of some religion are not fair or just. Some religious laws favor men over women. Legitimate laws treat men and women equally. Government is empowered to carry out justice. It is not lawful for an individual or institution to put anyone to death. It is lawful for government to carry out death penalty when a criminal is convicted of a crime deserving of death and sentenced to death.

When a person is determined to do evil, he rationalizes with many plausible reasons. So does a U.S. governor who said, “I simply cannot participate once again in something that I believe to be morally wrong.” The politician considers death penalty to be morally wrong? How self-conceited and self-righteous! Does he know who established death penalty? 

Gen 9:6,“Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man.” 

The little governor calls God morally wrong? The people of that state supported capital punishment; the governor is usurping and violating the will of voters. The governor irrationally regards capital punishment “as a justice system” he views as “unjust and vindictive.” Strange indeed, a murderer goes free is just and not vindictive? Was it kind and good for a vicious criminal to fatally bludgeoned a woman to death, and killed his fellow inmate with 84 stab wounds and a crushed skull? The way this ungodly governor talks about justice is like a crocodile shedding tears for eating a man. What is down rotten hypocritical was the governor cited his oath as a physician to “do no harm.” Although I do not know him as a physician, it is a well-known fact that the American predatory and fraudulent doctors and hospital owners have sucked the blood of American people with excessive and fraudulent bills that bankrupted millions of families. How crooked and corrupt to say he has no sympathy or compassion for murderers; whoever opposes capital punishment is a friend of murderers and an enemy of victims and their families. It is weird and warped to say death penalty scheme is “an expensive and unworkable system that fails to meet the basic standards of justice.” In his opinion to keep murderers comfortable and well-fed with free medical care, law library, gym and entertainment for life is cheap and workable and meets the basic standards of justice? The citizens must be wise up and take proper action in response to such a politician who is arrogant and presumptuous and who considers himself above the law, higher than the will of the people. Why are there so many irresponsible, useless, arrogant, crooked and corrupt politicians at federal, state, and local governments in America? Is this Exceptionalism? Is this the virtue of democracy?

The mass media is usually not good in follow-up reporting important events, but they are good at making and marking anniversary of the terrible event like massacre or tragedy. They tend to stress the tragic, negative and terrible. They do not know how to celebrate the good. Numerous events are scheduled in memory of the victims of the worst atrocity carried out on Norwegian soil since World War II are not meaningful if justice is not served, and if Norway does not learn from the bitter lesson. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who shortly after the massacre made his vow that Norway's response to the bloodbath would be “more democracy, more openness and more humanity, but never naivety.” 

(A). Democracy means majority rule, if the majority of Norwegians reject immigration of Muslims, a religion starkly incompatible with Christianity, if the government is democratic it must comply with the wishes and will of the people. 

(B). Western legal system is so flawed because it is expensive, very slow and ineffective to serve justice. For example, in America litigations are the gold mine for prosecutors, defense lawyers, court officials and legal professionals to make big money. The longer the trials are such as years, the more money they make.

(C). It is inhuman to abolish death penalty as is done in Europe because it effectively approves the killing and encourages massacre. If the five Oslo court judges decide the 33-year-old should be considered criminally sane and sentenced to prison, as requested by his defense, or instead follow the prosecution's line and send him to a closed psychiatric ward – the verdict would be a travesty of justice of the highest dimension and implication. The verdict would declare to the world the life of a terrorist is worth more than the lives of 77 innocent people. Death penalty is not cruel, killing innocent people is brutal. Death penalty is the only measure that makes punishment fit the vicious crime in a civilized society. 

A deadly shooting rampage took place on October 14, 2011 at an Orange County salon. The Orange County district attorney, Rackauckas said: “There are some cases that are so depraved, so callous and so malignant that there is only one punishment that might have any chance of fitting the crime.” Orange County was my home of sweet memories. I agree the death penalty is the only fit punishment. It is hoped Norway will follow Orange County, California in dealing with mass murderers.

5.    Opponent of death penalty is on the wrong side of justice.

A.   Against God

God says, Gen 9:6,“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for God made man in His own image.”

Note: God instituted death penalty. Death penalty is God’s law. If you oppose death penalty, you oppose God’s law. If you oppose God’s law, you oppose God.

B.   Against humanity

Lev 24:17,“Whoever kills any man shall surely be put to death.”

Note: Death penalty is not imposed on killing an animal; it is imposed on killing a man, any man. Whoever kills a man is against humanity. Death penalty is imposed so that man will not kill man. Whoever opposes death penalty is against humanity and endorses beastlike behavior. The enemies of death penalty are friends of killers and murderers. The opponents of death penalty value the life of a killer or murderer more than the lives of victims.

C.   Against Law and order

Jer 25:5,“Saying: Turn now everyone from his evil way and from the evil of your deeds, and dwell on the land which the LORD has given to you and your forefathers forever and ever.”

Note: Murder violates law and order and creates chaos in society. The land cannot have peace when there is murder. Murder is an evil way and an evil deed. Those who oppose death penalty oppose law and order.

D.     Against the innocent

Exd 23:7,“Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent and righteous. For I will not justify the wicked.”

Deu 19:10,“Lest innocent blood be shed in the midst of your land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and thus guilt of bloodshed be upon you.”

Note: Murder is killing the innocent. Innocent in Hebrew is naqiy which means free from guilt, clean, pure, free or exempt from obligations, free from blame; - it occurs 44 times in the Old Testament. Death penalty is to deter and stop the evildoer from killing the innocent. If you oppose death penalty, you stand with murderers against the innocent. To oppose death penalty is for killing of the innocent. To support death penalty is to support the innocent. The life of one innocent is worth more than ten thousand murderers.

The question is not how many eye-popping executions as the media sensationally suggested, the question is how many murders committed by heinous criminals who deserve death penalty. The suggestion of a psychologist that sentencing black people are more likely to commit violence wrongfully influenced the jury is demagogic and psychopathic. All you need to do is to visit the jails of big cities and see for yourself what percentage of murders had been committed by black and Latino convicts. There is no Affirmative Action in dealth penalty, if you do not commit murder, you will not suffer death penalty. Racial reference does not cause murders. Prisoners cannot be wrongfully executed, there can only be wrong prosecution with wrong evidence and wrong sentence. People have to pay for wrong accusation, wrong prosecution and fake evidence. By the way the jury system is corrupted by race and bribery, wasteful and ineffective; it should be replaced by trial of three independent judges. The courts, judges and legal professional like mistrials and more trials. According to the legal process, the more trials the more money they make. There is only one way of handling the death penalty, it should be simple, cheap, fair, and swift. Something is seriously wrong with the Supreme Court that ruled juveniles ineligible for the death penalty. How many wicked murderers hide behind juvenile status and got away with murders. Juvenile must be defined with age. A twelve year old (some twelve-year olds are bigger than many men) who deliberately killed someone should be executed. Hypocrites struggled to sleep at night because vicious murderers had been executed, they slept very well knowing thousands of innocent victims are brutally killed in America every year. I support Rick Perry’s statement, “In the state of Texas, if you come into our state and you kill one of our children, you kill a police officer, you're involved with another crime and you kill one of our citizens, you will face the ultimate justice in the state of Texas, and that is, you will be executed.” Something is distorted to believe those who believe in capital punishment have character flaw while those who support heinous murderers to be spared have virtue. Those who want to eliminate death penalty are the public enemies of victims of murder and their families. Americans should demand justice, justice for victims, and death penalty for murderers.

6.   Human rights of the West are empty and hollow.

The civil rights, human rights, political rights, etc. that Western nations are so proud of are useless and meaningless. What the peoples of the world need are the RIGHTS NOT to be killed or murdered, not to be raped, not to be harmed, not to be discriminated, not to be defrauded, not to be blackmailed, not to be exploited, not to be bankrupted (such as by doctors and hospitals who defraud and gouge patients) and the like.  There are evildoers and murderers everywhere who kill people deliberately almost for nothing. To them life is no value. The question is not whether a nation has the highest number of executions; the question is whether the nation has the lowest number of inhuman crimes that threaten the safety and security and wellbeing of the people. The right to live or the right not to be killed by the wicked is the supreme right of mankind.

An ungodly black supremacist wrote,“The death penalty is a barbaric anachronism, a crude instrument not of justice but of revenge. Most countries banished it long ago. This country should banish it now.” 

The following are troubling questions raised because of his faulty logic and flawed premises:

(A). The black supremacist would do his people a favor by admonishing them to refrain from killing people. He does not raise the question why the black people composes of only around 13 percent of the U.S. population committed most of the violent crimes (including murders) in America?

(B). If death penalty is barbaric, murder is not? Is death penalty truly a crude instrument not of justice but of revenge?  Absolutely not, death penalty was instituted by God to punish murderer.  If death penalty is a crude instrument, is murder and killing a fine instrument? Does he consider the life of a black killer more valuable than the life of innocent victim? Does the black supremacist want to spare black killers so that they can kill more good and innocent people?

Gen 9:6,“Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man.” Does this ungodly journalist think God is crude while he and all those who stand and sympathize with killers and oppose death penalty are nice and civilized?

(C). How can this ungodly black supremacist explain the United States has the largest number of murders committed every year among industrialized nations? How does he explain when a murderer is convicted and sentenced to death, the convict can live comfortably at the expense of taxpayers (that is why the cost of prisons is more than the cost of education in America) for many years by making appeals continuously and endless at the taxpayers’ expense?

(D). Does the ungodly journalist want his people continuously kill more innocent people and avoid death penalty so that they may live long and prosper?

(E). This black journalist is so crewed up that he thinks execution is wrong, while murder can be tolerated.

(F). This is the logic of hell from the mouth of a black supremacist who thinks the life of a killer had redeeming value, while it is not wrong to snuff out the life of an innocent. In my opinion, the life of an innocent person is worth more than a thousand barbaric and brutal murderers.

(G). The Atrocity International is actually and positively promoting murders by wanting to abolish dealth penalty so that killers do not need to have second thought because they would not pay for their life anyway after committing vicious killing. This is a movement inspired by hell and directed by the prince of darkness.

(H). All murderers should be executed simply, cheaply and swiftly. Black murderers are not exceptional. White killer should be treated the same. No killer should be an exception. This is justice for all. It is not Affirmative Action.

7.    Death penalty is the deterrence.

The severity of a punishment should be proportionate to the gravity of the crime committed. In America, there are many serial killers, and repeated killers because they were not executed. Where the legal system is flawed and the court is lenient, there evil people flourish and multiply. Life imprisonment for a murderer who is worthy of death causes injustice to the citizens who are to pay for prisons, food, clothing and medical care, etc. of murderers. Jails have become more costly than schools. The fact that capital offenders get free housing, free meals, free clothing, free medical care, free entertainment, etc. encourages crooks and criminals to be bolder in committing crimes. Death penalty puts an end of murderer; therefore death penalty is the most effective deterrence. In spite of liberal and pseudo-sociologist-psychologist may argue the opposite, a dead murderer can kill no more. Death penalty should be uncommon if murder is uncommon. Death penalty is unnecessary if there is no murder.

Gen 6:13,“So God said to Noah: I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.”

Note: God in ancient times destroyed the world by flood.

Num 16:21,“Separate yourselves from this assembly so I can put an end to them at once.”

Note: Separate yourself from evildoers, lest you are destroyed with them.

Isa 13:11,“I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless.”

Note: Death penalty is intended to punish the evildoer and the wicked for their crimes. If the wicked can kill and get away with it, how arrogant and haughty will they be. That is the problem of warmongers, because no nation is strong enough to punish them. Aggressors can only be stopped by stronger power; murderers can only be deterred by death penalty. There should be soul-searching in those countries that have abolished death penalty because they are encouraging the wicked and evildoers. What the government should be doing is not to implement measures aimed at reducing the number of capital sentences, but to reduce or deter committing of capital offenses. Without doubt, capital punishment is effective punishment. An executed murderer is dead and will never kill again.

8.    Crimes worthy of death.

Luk 23:15,“No, neither did Herod, for I sent you back to him; and indeed nothing deserving of death has been done by Him.”

Note: Justice is defined when a criminal deserving of death is executed. Injustice is defined when a criminal deserving of death is not executed, or an innocent is executed.

There must be cause or reason when a person is put to death. Judging from the universal moral standards of nations, free of racial or religious bias, the following crimes are worthy of death:

A.   Murder

Murder is defined as deliberate killing of an innocent, by whatever means, gun, knife, poison, malpractice, etc. The Western legal idea of intent is flawed. Intent has something to do with the heart only God knows, no law or legal system can deal with the heart. All laws and legal system deal with deeds, acts that man has committed. If you fire shots at the crowds, it does not matter what your intent is, if you kill someone you commit murder. If you put poison in food or drink or drug, it does not matter what your intent is, if people die you commit murder. If you set fire, it does not matter what your intent is, if people die you commit arson and murder. If you drink and drive, it does not matter what your intent is, if you kill people you commit murder. If you use an ax, without your knowledge that the handle would fly and kill someone, that is an accident, not a murder. If you know the ax is loose, you use it and it hits and kills someone you commit murder.

I am convinced those who manufacture deadly or toxic and fake drugs deserve death penalty and pay compensation to victims. Those who adulterate food, meat, vegetable or drink (including milk) with toxic and deadly chemicals and harmful additives which cause death or long-term disability to humans in the name of profit deserve death penalty and pay compensation. Those who recycle ditch oil and rotten food to sell for public consumption also deserve death penalty.

A deadly shooting rampage took place on October 14, 2011 at an Orange County salon. The Orange County district attorney, Rackauckas said: “There are some cases that are so depraved, so callous and so malignant that there is only one punishment that might have any chance of fitting the crime.” Orange County was my home of sweet memories. I agree the death penalty is the only fit punishment. It is hoped Norway will follow Orange County, California in dealing with mass murderers.

B.   Serial rape

If you commit rapes repeatedly, you deserve to die. If you rape children, boys or girls (as Catholic priests did), you deserve death penalty.

C.   Terrorism

If you commit a terrorist act such as bombing or by whatever means, you deserve to die. No religious or political cause can justify murder.

For the infamous Norwegian terrorist or mass murderer who killed more than 70 persons to receive a 21-year sentence is a travesty of justice. This is the folly of European nations that abolished death penalty. By law they declare the life of a terrorist or mass murderer is worth more than 70 lives of innocent people.

There are two greatest threats in the world today: American imperialism and Islamic terrorism. Since the end of World War II American presidents have incited and instigated hundreds of unjust wars and brutal military interventions that killed millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world. American imperialism and Islamic terrorism account for 99 percent of all problems, troubles, poverty, miseries, difficulties, death and destruction in the world today.

D.   Big fraud

If you defraud $10 million or more, you deserve to die. For most people work hard and do not earn one million dollars in their lifetime. Under this definition, whether you are a corrupt official, executive, doctor, hospital owner, lawyer, etc., if you defraud $10 million or more accumulatively, you deserve death penalty.

I find the piece written by Barry Ritholtz (September 25, 2011) the clearest, finest and truest facts about rogue banks and rogue bankers, “In an era of bailouts on the backs of the taxpayer, it points to a simple reality: Firms must decide whether they are going to sacrifice profit in pursuit of safety, or sacrifice safety in pursuit of profit. Whatever they decide, it is not the responsibility or obligation of taxpayers to backstop these choices.

Consider the choices made by management: The collapse of firms such as AIG, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers were caused by the same sort of poor judgment as UBS’s $2 billion in losses — only the rogues gallery there included the senior-most managers of the firms. Hank Greenberg exhorting his staff to focus on reusing paper clips, while the mortgage syndication division lost billions of dollars. Dick Fuld surrounding himself with yes men while the firm’s leverage and risk exposure went through the roof. Tom Savage, president of AIG’s Financial Products, calling derivative underwriting free money.

Paul Volcker, arguably the greatest central banker in history, has persuasively argued that proprietary trading should not be part of the insured depository banking sector. I utterly agree with Fed governor Thomas Hoenig, who has described the banking sector as “more akin to public utilities” than independent entities. Want to be independent to pursue proprietary trading? Let’s drop their FDIC insurance and see how far their reputations carry them.

The next crisis — the one after the present one in Europe — is where I expect to see the ultimate damage wreaked by rogue bankers.

The bailouts have created a moral hazard, where leveraged speculators and rogue bankers know that the state will bail them out. This is unacceptable. There is no reason that taxpayers should be responsible for any rogues, traders or bankers.

Perhaps UBS’s failure to prevent this did us a favor. It points out that Volcker is right: Any firm that can blow itself up should not qualify for taxpayer guarantees. Lenders, underwriters and mortgage originators are in the business of using their capital to earn a fair return safely. That government-backed insurance should be available only to depository banks, not firms associated with speculative traders.”

There is no effective remedy to stop crisis created by Wall Street bankers and others. Under the current system, rogue banks and rogue bankers will be bolder and bolder to defraud taxpayers. Only death penalty will stop Wall Street crooks and criminals. Any banker who causes loss of $10 million or more to taxpayers must be executed with lethal injection, all assets seized, and the board of directors be made legally liable.

According to Ed O'Keefe, “Overall, the federal government’s improper payments totaled about $125 billion in fiscal 2010 — a $15 billion year-to-year increase due to a growing number of unemployment insurance and Medicaid payments. Despite the jump, federal agencies also recovered about $687 million mistakenly paid to delinquent government contractors and beneficiaries.

Last October, an investigation by the office of Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) concluded that the federal government had paid nearly $1 billion to at least 250,000 dead people since 2000. That same month, a watchdog reported that the Obama administration’s economic stimulus program had made 89,000 payments of $250 each to dead or incarcerated people.”

Politicians, government officials, or agency heads who lose or waste $10 million or more of taxpayer money should also be executed and all assets seized.

E.   Arson that kills

If you commit arson that kills a person or more, you deserve death penalty. If you commit arson that causes loss of $10 million or more, even without death, you deserve to die.

F.   Treason

If you conspire with a foreign power in an armed rebellion against your government (as Dalai Lama did) and Lee Teng-hui, Chen Shui-bian,  you deserve death penalty.

G.   Drug trafficking

If you engage in illegal drugs (such as heroin, opium, etc.) worth $1 million or more, whether individually or as an organized crime, you deserve death penalty.

H.   Human trafficking

If you engage in human trafficking, kidnapping a child or woman for sale, you deserve death penalty.

I.    Sex trafficking

If you force a boy or girl, man or woman into sex slavery or prostitution, you are guilty of death penalty.

J.   Corruption

Corruption takes place in government and business where money and power are in the hands of the few. A corrupt official or executive who takes bribes or misappropriates $10 million or more should be executed and all assets seized to pay the victims. It is fair and just because most people do not earn $1 million in their lifetime.

In summary, death penalty is the divine remedy for human evil deeds. The issue is not whether a nation executes too many people. The issue is whether murderers worthy of death are executed or not. No nation should execute people, all nations should execute murderers and people who commit crimes deserve to die.

Isa 13:11,“I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”

Note: Those nations that have abolished death penalty should rethink and reinstitute the divine practice to deter human senseless killing. No organization should be allowed to profit or benefit by campaigning against capital punishment.

The largest fraud and corruption was created by Wall Street in 2008 so-called American economic and financial crisis which robbed the world more than $50 trillion, yet no one went to jail, much less to be executed. This is the beauty of American justice. American huge deficits and largest national debt of more than $17 trillion will never reduce because the current American system benefits greatly and richly the 1 percent of the population who are the rich and powerful at the expense of the 99 percent, and at the expense of American future.

K.   Food and drug that kills

Anyone or business that manufactures or sells fake, contaminated, toxic food, drink and drug that kills people deserves death penalty.

9.    How death penalty should be carried out.

Justice should be done:

A.   Fairly

Justice should be done fairly for all. If you are not guilty, no court or prosecutors should be able to convict you. If you are guilty, no dream team of lawyers can acquit you. A flawed legal system is an unfair legal system which is influenced by race, color, background, class, money, power, position, etc. For that reason the jury system should be abolished because it is corrupted by money and race. The jurors are ignorant of the law and waste time and resources. 

Est 1:13,“Then the king said to the wise men who understood the times for this was the king's manner toward all who knew law and justice.” 

The jury system should be replaced by a panel of three independent and competent judges. The verdict of the majority stands. All should be treated equal under the law. If you are guilty, no amount of money should be able to acquit you. If you are innocent, no highly-paid prosecutors and lawyers represented by accuser can convict you. 

Job 34:4, “Let us choose justice for ourselves; let us know among ourselves what is good.”

Money cannot be used to redeem the guilty. The rich as well as the poor do not have a right to kill.

B.   Cheaply

The American criminal justice system is very costly; it sucks more than $4.5 trillion a year from the economy. Tons of laws and volumes of rules and regulations are in fact means for lawyers and legal professions to get filthy rich. Laws should be written in simple language so that ordinary people can understand without an opinion of a judge or lawyer. Litigation has become a legal blackmail to extort money. False accusation and false evidence should be penalized heavily financially. In addition, the innocent must receive award for damages.

A court which is influenced by the quantity of defense lawyers is a legal theatrics which let lawyers of both sides to play legal games. This kind of legal system is very costly. As an example, it is too bad that a murder is committed in a town. Now the town is burdened to pay for the defense of the murderer – how ridiculous and unjust it could be. Too bad an innocent life has been sacrificed; the free counsel for the murderer could bankrupt the town. The more lengthy the litigation, the more costly it becomes, and the more money the prosecutors and defense make at public expense. Public defense is a bottomless financial pit for lawyers of both sides to extract money from the town or city. Defense should be purely based on fact and evidence, not the fancy legal maneuver or theatrics or dirty tricks of lawyers. To cut down the unnecessary cost, yes is yes, no is no. Fake evidence or misrepresentation by prosecutors or defense lawyers must be penalized heavily financially and disbarred. Unnecessary or irrelevant inquiry must be prohibitive. Any attempt to lengthen unnecessary proceeding or prolong court hearing should be discouraged, and penalized if found to be groundless.

C.   Swiftly

If the court hearing is purely based on fact and evidence, no fancy defense or legal theatrics, the proceeding could be simple and swift. The accused must be allowed to speak for himself/herself, not designed by prosecutor with yes or no answer. The accused is allowed to provide the background material of his reasoning and fact presentation for his defense. If a murderer is convicted and sentenced to death penalty, the convict may have one appeal to the appeal court at his own expense within a month of sentencing. No money can buy supreme court review of the sentencing, unless there is good reason for the supreme court to look into the case and give temporary stay of the execution. Execution should not become a public show; it should be done privately by lethal injection which is effective and swift. No one should be allowed to make money out of a major crime story. The crime story cannot be sold by convict or his relative for financial gain. No publisher can publish a major crime story without consent and benefit of the victim’s family. The family of murderer should not receive one penny for the crime committed. No newspaper is allowed to sensationalize highly publicized cases of murder. The newspapers may report straight facts.

Ezr 7:26,Whoever will not observe the law of your God and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily on him, whether it be death, or banishment, or confiscation of goods, or imprisonment.”

Note: Execute in Aramaic is `abad , which means to make, do, perform, to be done, to be carried out; - it occurs about 28 times in the Old Testament. Speedily in Aramaic is 'ocparna' , which means thoroughly, carefully, perfectly, eagerly, diligently, forthwith; - it occurs only 7 times in the Old Testament. In America, a death sentence may not be carried out for decades – a clear violation of swift justice.

Let it be known that the great majority of Chinese still back capital punishment in spite of Western propaganda and surreptitious influence. The majorities in some European countries also support the death penalty even though their governments have abolished it. To abolish death penalty is a lost cause. What should be abolished is murder or killing. When and where there is no murder or killing, death penalty would not be necessary. The liberal media is trying to promote a movement that does not gather strength because the vast majority of peoples in the world believe in death penalty for the most inhuman and vicious crime called murder. The so-called international criticism of death penalty is nothing but crocodile tears of pseudo-humanitarians which are worthless and unworthy. Murderers are worse than robbing graves or smuggling cultural relics, they are taking the precious human lives. It is inhuman to defend the extremely serious crimes of murder and senseless killing. Where murders are prevalent such as in America, people live in fear. People who live in fear are half dead and not free. The society must be freed from murderers and free from fear.

The mass media is guilty of sensationally making a murderer (intentionally to omit his name) of JACKSON, Ga. who killed Officer Mark MacPhail (deliberately to call his name) a hero, and making the execution of a black murderer a front-page event. The media was the tool of rounding up supporters, but even the most lenient Supreme Court rejected an 11th-hour request for a stay. State and federal courts have repeatedly upheld the killer’s conviction. The pardons board rejected the killer, and Georgia’s governor does not have the power to grant condemned inmates clemency. The murderer claimed to tell the truth, God knows the truth and the murderer must find where he belongs, up or down. There will be no peace for the wicked.

Isa 48:22, “There is no peace for the wicked, says the LORD.”

Rev 22:15,“Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.” 

No, the Atrocity International is deadly wrong; the brutal murder of the innocent is permanently the best argument for execution and reinforcement of the death penalty. Hear ye, hear ye, barbarians! Let all future muderers beware, even if you escape the execution on earth; you will not escape the eternal punishment in hell. The U.S. criminal justice system is so flawed with so many rights and appeals given to the convicted murderers. The filings of appeal should not be used as a delay tactic. There should be only one appeal at the expense of the convicted murderer. The justice must be simple, cheap, fair, and swift. Execution of convicted murderers must be carried out within a month, no fanfare, no sensation, no public show. America would be better off if the black people do not make themselves exceptional. Execution is not Affirmative Action; if there is no murder, there should not be execution. If you want justice and believe in the truth, just pay a visit to the prisons in America and examine the records and see for yourself what people committed most of the violent crimes including murders, robberies and rapes. Equal justice for all, no exception, black or white or anything else.

The flawed legal system actually has encouraged many violent crimes in America. There are countless cases of demonstrating and proving a flawed legal system. Here is one example of the flawed legal system. The insanity plea is a laughingstock, a lame excuse, and outrageous legal maneuver to get the guilty go free. The insanity plea often is a travesty of justice, a glaring flaw of a defective criminal justice system. A biology professor who planned and carried out killing three colleagues and wounding other three persons in an execution-style shooting during a staff meeting could not be suffering a mental disease. A person suffering a mental disease or defect could not plan and carry out murders with precision. It is long overdue to define what insanity is. Psychiatry is a dismal science used and abused by defense lawyers to acquit murderers too many times. Insanity plea should no longer be used as a protective cover in committing a heinous crime. The woman was charged with the shooting death of her teenage brother before.

Jury trial is wasteful, time-consuming and corrupted. For example, the infamous trial of a black man who killed his wife and a white man in Los Angeles was acquitted by a black jury. Jury trial should be replaced by three independent judges and the verdict of majority stands. Death sentence should have one appeal at the expense of the convicted murderer. Execution of convicted murderers should take place one month after appeal was rejected.

This is a major flaw of Western justice. A petty theft may justify having a statute of limitations, but murder, rape, robbery, swindle of large sum of money, arson that killed people, and treason should not have the statute of limitations.

When murderers are executed, that is not the end of everything. For the Bible says, Hbr 9:27,“And just as it is appointed for men to die once, and after that comes judgment.” If you were born once, you will die twice. The birth was the physical birth. The first death is the physical death, and the second death is the eternal death. An unbeliever will be judged and sent to hell for eternal punishment. 

No murderer or sinner can escape God's judgment even he/she escapes human justice.

2Pe 3:7,“But by the same Word the heavens and earth that now exist have been stored up for fire, being kept until the Day of Judgment and destruction of ungodly men.” 

The world will be burnt up by probably nuclear fire.

2Th 1:9, “They shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His might.” If you were born twice, you will die only once. The first birth was the physical birth; the second birth is born again, the spiritual birth; and you will die only once that is the physical death. For a born again Christian, 

2Cr 5:8,“We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” When a Christian dies, he is present with the Lord waiting for the resurrection of the righteous. 

1 Th 4:16“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel's call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.” The dead in Christ will rise first and be transformed into glorious spiritual bodies to meet the Lord in the space. 

1Th 4:17,“Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the space. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” 

When Jesus Christ returns, the saints will reign with Him forever and ever with power and glory. That is the beginning of the blessed eternity in the Kingdom of heaven. You have a choice: eternal life or eternal death. You can have eternal life if only you would repent of your sins and believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Will you accept Him now?
