Murder is enlisted as a Capital Offence by almost all governments in the world. I’m tempted to say, “all” but I’m giving room for some turbulent regimes, widely spread in the world, engineered by human hands and unconverted hearts.
As a principle, all capital offenders cannot be bailed, but must serve a reasonable jail term, unless otherwise, or in case of an amnesty. To be more strict, capital offense, attracts capital punishment.
According to Oxford Dictionary, capital punishment is the practice of putting a person to death as a punishment for a crime. It is synonymous to death penalty.
Here are five murderers who have escaped our penal code, and are operating carefree in the society :
1. A Careless Parent
Parentage is a duty that many take a simple duty. This can be proved by the alarming indifference with which it is treated. We have people today who have delegated the duty of parentage to the home managers, teachers or TV shows. They are so busy with jobs and business till they don’t have time to check on their children.
This does not begin with raising children, but from conception. Did you know that there are people who were already criminals even while they were a blastocyst! An innocent zygote, but a criminal. How is this possible?
The answer relies on the paternal and maternal qualities. Children, to a great degree, inherit their character and temperament from their parents. Because of parental moral depravity, a lot of people are born with almost unconquerable disposition towards evil and crime.
A drunkard father, a smoking mother, an adulterer, to a great extent, bequeath their undesirable qualities to their innocent children!
We should not be surprised why teenage delinquency is on the rise. Our children are disciplined by undisciplined discipliners!
2. A Careless cook
The duties of a cook is one which many don’t take seriously. A lot of people do not care whether or not, the one who is in charge of their meals is qualified, or not. This can be seen when big companies hire non-professionals to handle their feeding program, in order to cut on costs? People don’t care anymore on the qualifications of the one in charge of their meals.
Is food such an important thing? O Yes. Our bodies are made up of what we eat. Nutrition is the most important thing in influencing the outcomes of our health. If your meal is very rich in cholesterol, sooner or later you will be diagnosed with arteriosclerosis. Depraved appetites make people eat themselves to death.
A carelessly prepared meal, has its great contribution in alarming cases of ill-health in the world. Sooner or later, death is the result.
“Scanty, ill-cooked food depraves the blood by weakening the blood-making organs. It deranges the system, and brings on disease, with its accompaniment of irritable nerves and bad tempers. The victims of poor cookery are numbered by thousands and tens of thousands. Over many graves might be written: “Died because of poor cooking;” “Died of an abused stomach.”—The Ministry of Healing, 302, 303, 1905
3. A Smoker
The health benefits of smoking are so hidden, we are still waiting to have someone discover them. Smoke is one thing we were not meant to deal with. Even Natural selection cannot make us able to handle it.
Smoking is so obviously a shortcut to death and a dysfunctional system. It is a slow murder. With every puff, comes a shortened lifespan, a depreciation in functionality and eventually a robbery to the world and family.
The world loses skilled people who can contribute to problem solving, whereas our families are robbed of a father, a husband, a mother, a breadwinner, an uncle and a friend.
4. A Heartless Master
Servitude is a service that will always be offered as long as life will last. Handling of servants is one thing most people do not know. By their behaviour, the majority of the “big people” seem to think that their servants are myogenic and indefatigable. They have forgotten that these people are still human beings who get tired, who have pleasurable desires.
There are many people who think their home managers don’t like good food. So you will find there is a family feeding program, and this excludes the servants. This is inhumanity. It is one of the diseases of the World — inhumanity of man towards man.
Many people have died before their time because of being under Heartless masters who demand the efforts of a superhuman from a human.
5. A human being who hates God.
I want to start by saying that I don’t understand God in entirety and I think this will be what makes Him qualified for my reverence. The world today has people having different views concerning God. Theists believe that God exists whereas Atheists believe otherwise. Agnostics, skeptics etc, also have their fair share of opinions, which I don’t have otherwise but to respect.
But did you know it’s God’s power that sustains all these diverse people? It is sometimes absurd that those who question God’s existence, hate him so much, that they will spend time debating and calling people to think like them.
It beats logic that you spend energy fighting what doesn’t exist.
But what does the Blessed Bible Say?
KJV Proverbs 8:36
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
God is the fountain of life; and when one chooses the service of sin, he separates from God, and thus cuts himself off from life….God gives [those who are cut off] existence for a time that they may develop their character and reveal their principles. This accomplished, they receive the results of their own choice. By a life of rebellion, Satan and all who unite with him place themselves so out of harmony with God that His very presence is to them a consuming fire. The glory of Him who is love will destroy them.—Desire of Ages 764
