Knowing the government puts innocent people to death, at what percentage of wrongful executions would you change your mind? 1%, 10%, 50%?
If you ask me, one wrongful execution is more then enough to do away with the death penalty.
I don't think the Bible is the place to look for moral guidance.
Ex 31:15 – Anyone who works on the Sabbath must be killed.
Lev 20:10, 13, 27 – You must kill adulterers, homosexuals, wizards and spirit mediums.
Lev 24:16 – Blasphemers must be killed.
Deut 22:21 – A bride found not to be a virgin must be stoned to death.
