Capital Punishment — Part Two

Selected Scriptures  (ID: 2230)

Capital punishment can be an emotional and controversial subject. Does one man really have the legal right to take the life of another? Turning to Romans 13, Alistair Begg teaches that all human authority is derived from God’s authority. Every government is therefore divinely established and in some instances may punish evildoers on God’s behalf. To consider this topic biblically, we must remain grounded in the truth of God’s sovereignty and the principles of justice which He has set forth.
