But I figured a biblical person as yourself would see killing in any form to be immoral.
I think the bible is more than clear about killing in warfare, killing in self-defense or killing via capital punishment versus murder.

What verses do you have on capital punishment? Well besides the those where an innocent Jesus died by the system...

Gen 9:6 "Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God He made man."

I don't think appealing to the Bible, as a whole, is the best argument against the death penalty.

The teachings of Jesus, sure. . .but the Bible as a whole? INDY and Caleb are going to have a field day with that.

Context. If you look further up in the discussion I spoke specifically to INDY's Christian faith, and as a Christian the Old Testament is looked at from the standpoint of the NEW Testament, not the other way around.

As we know we can pick and choose single lines of scriptures to justify almost everything under the sun from murder to slavery.
