Capital Punishment in the Bible.

The death penalty as a capital punishment for heinous crimes is a continuing source of discussion and debate in the Philippines. The discussion was revived when President Rodrigo Duterte reiterated his call for a “swift passage of the law reviving the Death Penalty by lethal injection for crimes specified under the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002”, in his fifth State of the Nation Address last Monday, July 27, 2020.

Message of the Day: Keep Our Eyes On Jesus And Discipline Ourselves To Withstand Defeat.

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:1-2, NKJV)
