Sermon Quotes: "The Commandment You Thought You Kept"

“Now he prescribes capital punishment, not as a deterrent-deterrence is not discussed-but as a signal that murder is in a class by itself, in that it kills a being made in the image of God.” Don Carson

“God takes cognizance of the emotions from which the acts of hate may spring, and calls us to account as much for the angry feeling as the murderous deed. Words also come under the same condemnation. To call a man a worthless fellow, is to kill him in his reputation…What a sweeping law is this! My conscience might have been easy as to the command, ‘Thou shalt not murder’; but if anger without just cause is murder, how shall I answer for it?” Charles Spurgeon
