    Politics

    All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

    Religion

    Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, the power of evil in the world is broken.
