It is very hard to believe that any sophisticated and civilized society or country in the world could be at the service of death. There is heated debate on whether death penalty should be allowed or not in a country. Opponents of capital punishment through death penalty warn that there are possibilities that innocent people may be executed and there is nothing which can be done to reverse the act. According to the Christians’ believes, God created man and has all the authority to take away his life and hence no man should take away any ones’ life. In some cases, a judge may sentence an innocent person to death and hence instead of protecting the society from the adversaries of crimes, death penalty only serves to put the whole society at jeopardy. This essay will look at death penalty from the angle of its problems and reasons as to why it should not be allowed.
