Committing Murder

Well, that's quite straightforward, isn't it!

Murder (the intentional unrighteous killing of a human being) is universally perceived to be wrong, even by those who do not believe in God; it is what secularists may sometimes call the "natural law".

I consider how the concept of murder can be extended to hating one's brother and whether it might even be considered an act of rebellion against God Himself.

Dr. Juster also comments about the meaning and value of capital punishment as part of a justice system.
