The Irony of it All: A Man Who Deserves to Die, but Can't!
Rev. John D. Reyes

Justice demands that when one sheds innocent blood, by man must his own blood be shed! The death penalty is God's divine retribution against those who would shed the innocent blood of another. Executing the guilty is a very loving thing to do! It protects society from criminals and instills fear into man, so that one will know that there are consequences to one's actions. God has ordained civil government to be His ministers of wrath to delinquents who do wrong; inflicting punishment on them while rewarding the good for doing right.

Even though convicted murderer Allen Holman is unrepentant for his sin of murdering his estranged wife, he wants to be executed. He deserves to die, but can't because justice is being driven back by the North Carolina Medical Board. The Board has ever-so-clearly stated that any doctor in the state who administers fatal deadly chemicals into Mr. Holman's body for the purpose of government sanctioned (and God ordained) execution, would be acting in an unethical manner and would face punishment for his actions.

What irony! This same medical board that will not allow a doctor (under the jurisdiction of the civil government) to administer justice by executing a guilty man, condones and practices the unethical, ungodly slaughter of North Carolina's innocent unborn children everyday!! Not only to they decapitate little children, they also use fatal chemicals to kill these innocent ones all the time! Mr. Holman sees this, but we do not. Isn't it interesting how God will even use a wicked murderer on death row to expose our own wickedness!

The North Carolina Medical Board has encroached upon the jurisdiction of North Carolina's civil government, strangling justice, not only for our unborn children but for our society in prohibiting a cold-blooded killer from being executed! Our civil magistrates have been given a mandate by God Himself to kill Mr. Holman and should start, effective immediately! Of course, it would also bring glory to God for the state of North Carolina to start the prosecution of its abortionists, and when found guilty of murder in a court of law, have them executed as well.

“For he (the civil government) is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.” Romans 13:4, 5
