Silver Birch: The Inflicter Of Capital Punishment

“Q: How is the inflicter of capital punishment, such as a hangman or the operator of an electric chair, judged when he reaches the spirit world?

IF he knows it is wrong, he will pay the penalty for sinning with knowledge. If he does not know it is wrong, then there will be no punishment.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers

Silver Birch: To What Extent Is Man Allowed To Kill?

“I DON’T like the use of the word “allowed.” Mankind is given free will, but in a measure that is qualified and restricted. It is not an unfettered free will enabling individuals to do everything they would like to do. The bestowal of free will is part of the divine plan so that people have the opportunity of cooperating, of living in harmony with the natural laws, the infinite processes of creation, and achieving health, understanding, realisation and fulfillment. Killing is wrong, though there are qualifications. Because you have not the power to confer life, then you should not have the power to end it. There are qualifications because there are other considerations to be met. The more you evolve spiritually the more you realise that you must act in accordance with clear principles that are based on a knowledge of spiritual realities.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
