Those who have made terrible choices just like Billy Moore and Kelly Gissendaner often become some of the most credible voices in the world of the power of God to redeem sinners.
It’s hard to imagine Jesus saying anything else to Kelly Gissendaner, or Jodi Arias, except those words he said to the woman in the Gospel: I love you. You are forgiven. Go and sin no more.
Perhaps it is no surprise that alongside constant stories of death from Paris and Nigeria to Ferguson and NY, there is a surge of opposition to the death penalty in the U.S. It just feels strange to protest another ISIS beheading and then watch another botched execution in the U.S.
