Persuasive Essay Capital Punishment When turning on the television radio or simply opening the local newspaper one is bombarded with news of arrests murders homicides serial killers and other such tragedies It is a rare occasion to go throughout a day in this world and not hear of these things So what should be done about this crime rate Not only is it committing a crime but today it is signing your life over to the government This is a risk one is taking when he decides to pull a trigger or plunge a knife but is it really up to our justice system to decide ones fate There are many issues that address this question of capital punishment such as religion the effect on society restitution being denied the possible wrongly accused and the rights of the convicted But how often do these concepts creep into the publics mind when it hears of our fair trusty government taking away someones breathing rights The Bible states Thou shalt not kill and this being a sin should have to be amended within oneself However the Bible also states Dont judge others personal convictions It is the governments responsibility to punish people that disobey the law to keep our world in tact but is it their right to take away their lives It is a Christians responsibility to point out to those who sin that they do so and this country trusting in God as it says it does should do just that So if the government stands strongly by this statement thats on the dollar bill may they line up all the liars adulterers Buddhists thieves covetous and murderers at the chair If they shall look into this one sin as so evil may they see all ten commandments so holy The society is so confused as to what is right More and more children are becoming murderers themselves The reason is obvious
