·         The Bible says that God is just and will reward the just and punish those who sin.

·         The Bible says that people should be treated fairly and not cheated and God wants the world to run justly.

·         Jesus said that the rich should share with the poor – Christians should treat people fairly and equally.

·         The Christian Churches have made many statements about the need for Christians to work for justice and fairness in the world.

Different attitudes to capital punishment against Christians

Against Capital Punishment:

·         Jesus came to save sinners. It is impossible to reform a criminal who has been executed.

·         Jesus said that an eye for an eye is wrong meaning he bans retribution

·         Christianity teaches that life is sacred and that only God has the right to take a life.

·         Most of the Christian Churches have condemned capital punishment.

For Capital Punishment:

·         The Bible sets down the death penalty as the punishment for a number of crimes so it is allowed by God.

·         The Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England have not retracted their statements which permit the state to use capital punishment.

·         The Christian Church used capital punishment in the past for the crime of heresy (holding beliefs different from official Church teachings)

·         Some Christian thinkers believe that peace of society is more important that the reform of sinner and that Christians can therefore use capital punishment to preserve the pace of society

Against illegal drugs because:

·         It is against the law and Christians should obey the law as long as it is just

·         St Paul taught that a Christian’s body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which should not be abused and taking drugs is abusing God’s temple

·         Drugs have a mental effect making it difficult to worship God properly or follow the Christian way of life

·         All Christian Churches teach that the use of illegal drugs is wrong

Believe tobacco and alcohol is okay within moderation because:

·         The first miracle Jesus performed was changing water into wine

·         St Paul said that Christians could drink in moderation. ‘Stop drinking water and use a little wine because of your stomach…’

·         Jesus drank wine during his life and even at his death

·         Jesus used bread and wine at his Last Supper and told his disciples to continue the tradition

·         Most Churches use alcoholic wine in their communion services

Are against smoking and drinking because:

·         Believe it is abusing God’s temple

·         Bible teaches that the consumption of alcohol impairs judgement, inflames passion and invites violence.

·         Believe that Christians should set an example of a good and healthy lifestyle by abstaining from them.

·         Bible warns against drunkenness. E.G. Noah’s drunkenness brought shame to his family
