WithChrist.org Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
Reasoning:

“The Death Penalty is moral and just. Judicial death for the purpose of maintaining justice or righteousness is well established in human history. However, the rise of death penalty executions in the United States against a backdrop of liberalism has triggered protests from various anti-capital punishment factions. Often shouting the loudest are liberal religionists and clergy who erroneously claim to speak for God. These folks are grossly confused and seriously wrong.”

Description:

“WithChrist.org (originally TrueBranch Ministry) was established in late 1995 and has been supported primarily through our personal sacrifice, labor, and funds. Since the start, hundreds of hours have been spent each year creating and maintaining these websites, as well as time spent in correspondence with those who write from all over the world … The heart of our modest ministry is personal email correspondence with Christians around the world who are hungry to grow in their spiritual life and service… Together, we continue to joyfully serve in this ministry designed to provide spiritual growth resources to born-again members of Christ’s Body.”

Mission:

“Our goal is for a life-giving ministry (2 Cor. 4:12) which guides believers into study suited to their unique circumstances and further striving to see them become ‘established in grace’ and on their own with the Lord as soon as possible (2 Peter 3:18). Our expectation is for correspondents to eagerly study the Word of God (sixty-six canonical books of the Bible) as well as recommended Christian literature–understanding that the goal for believers is to be anchored in truth and advancing in a more intimate knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
