Question from Carol Beauchamp on 10/23/2013:

In Genesis 9:6 it says 'if anyone shed the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has man been make.' Is this saying that God condones Capitol Punishment??

Answer by Judie Brown on 10/24/2013:

Carol

God is never indifferent to the taking of a human life, whether that person is on death row or in the womb. So no, I do not think the quote is God's acceptance of Capitol Punishment.
