Comment: Capital crimes in Scripture

(See in situ)

Capital crimes in Scripture

It could be done with more tact, but I appreciate being warned of danger. These crimes are dangerous. Science has shown early deaths, even when we don't actively enforce the death penalty. Some call it natural law, karma, cause and effect. Some people truly believe you are in danger, and they are simply trying to warn you. It's not always hate. Sometimes, but not always.
