Although I intended to go back to our series on tyranny, today I deviated yet again by looking at a speech given by Governor Shapiro of Pennsylvania on February 16, 2023. Speaking from a church in Philadelphia, Governor Shapiro discusses the topic of the death penalty. By advocating for a complete abolishment of the death penalty, he is actually failing to do his God-given duty as a civil magistrate. So, today I offer a review and critique of his speech from a biblical perspective. 01:15 - Passage of the Day: Genesis 9:6 (Institution of Capital Punishment) and Ecclesiastes 8:11 (Deterrence of Crime) 06:00 - Review of Governor Shapiro's address on February 16, 2023 concerning the death penalty. The link to the full speech can be found below: Governor Shapiro Announcement on Criminal Justice As always, if you have any law/government related questions, feel free to email me at, and I will be happy to address them on the program.
