What is the biblical support for the death penalty?
I have a friend who claims that the bible and God support the death penalty - therefore, good christians should as well.
I'm using the "love thy neighbor" idea and she's using "eye for an eye," etc.
Here's my thought: Jesus preached about love. I find it difficult to believe that someone who died by being nailed to a cross (death penalty) would be in favor of and support the concept. Call me crazy....
