No Death should not be the answer for violent criminals We do not have the right to decide if such an individual live or die. We must leave this judgement up to the Lord. One might argue that there are laws and rules that governs the land, but the scriptures teaches otherwise. Yes! A person taking someone's life is preventing that person from progressing, and we taking their life how does that make us different from him? We must leave all judgement up to the Lord. I believe that if we want to punish a violent criminal a life sentence without parole is good enough. The punishment he will be getting from the Lord will be far worst than the one that will e given by man.
