I support the death penalty for two reasons. One is I believe the Bible and God has given us laws that we are to live by, second I believe that those who have committed terrible crimes should be punished justly or else no one would learn a lesson.

The death penalty has been around since Bible times so it not a new idea and is first mentioned in the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament. The book of Torah is the laws that God gave to Moses and the Israelites after they came out of bondage from Egypt.

The Bay Colonies in 1641 in the Early American times, wrote a Body of Liberties. These twelve colonial capital laws were based on the Mosaic Code, the Torah. Like the Israelites, the colonists of our great country wanted a standard of conduct that was expected of Godly people. Five of the laws on the Bay Colony dealt with murder, manslaughter, poisoning, kidnapping and being a false witness. The colonist believed that capital punishment was the best way to deal with horrible crimes. They also believed that the death penalty placed the responsibility of the crimes on the criminal, holding them accountable for their own actions.

After reading this history I realized that capital punishment was not a man-made idea but was a law passed down from God to maintain order and safety for His people. One of the Ten Commandments is thought shalt not murder.
I believe that those convicted of horrific crimes such as murder, sex trafficking, rape, kidnapping and other crimes robbing another person of their freedom, should be punishable by death. I do believe that some people can be reformed but many of those charged with serious crimes should not have the liberty to sit for years in prison or out on the street enjoying their freedom when they took that chance away from someone else. I think the families and friends who suffered because of someone’s crime need to see justice fulfilled. I think death row should be done away with and the sentences should be carried out shortly after conviction.

Heritage

This past lesson in the Bible study I am in Experiencing God By Beth Moore we have been learning about heritage.  We had gone over the lives of some of the people that God chose to mention in what I like to call the Hebrews 11 hall of fame.  I began to think of what kind of heritage have I come from?  Both side of my parents family were believers in Christ and it has been passed down through the generations.  I love how Beth Moore said in the video section of our lesson that we have an important role to teach those who come behind us about the heritage of our faith. 

I was thinking of the toddlers I have in my class at church and the niece and nephew in my family.  I have friends with children that I hang out with.  I am a single woman but that does not mean that I cannot let my life shine with the  love of the Father.  Amy my life reflect my Saviour’s love and in the words of a song I know well, “May the footprints that we leave, lead them to believe, the lives we live inspire them to obey.  May all who come behind us find us faithful!”

Happy New Year

Its that time of year again when that silly New Year’s resolution is supposed to be stated and then weeks later we forget all about it and then set another one next year we  won’t keep.

I have made one this year that I know is attainable.  My goal is to live my life for Christ, study His word the Bible with passion and learn of its mysteries.  I plan to serve my Lord with a willing heart and to care for those he has asked me to help.  To encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ and to be a light to this dark world that is in so much need of hope and a Savior.

That my friends, is the only resolution I will probably keep from this year until I meet my Lord in glory.

my book

I am taking my book off the market this week.  It will come back in a newly revised edition soon.  I am switching publishers and adding some new poems not found in the first edition.  Keep you eye out here for the latest information.

 

Reason for the Season!

I hope you remember the true meaning of Christmas behind all the torn wrapping paper and bows.  May you remember that the reason we celebrate is to remember that a baby boy, God’s son, came down to save us all from our sins.  It was the ultimate gift for Christmas.

You cannot buy salvation from Ebay, Amazon or Craigslist.  It is one item Walmart does not carry and you cannot order it from As Seen on TV.  Do you know why it cannot be bought?  It is because the gift is free to all who ask for it!

Merry Christmas!
