Colson Capital Punishment: A Personal Statement Charles W. Colson was imprisoned for his role in the Watergate scandal and uses his faith to justify capital punishment in the most extreme cases, such that is proportional to the crime committed. Summary Charles W. Colson makes many fine points about the support of the use of capital punishment. He quotes many bible passages including (Acts 25:11) when he states “If… I am guilty of doing anything deserving death, I do not refuse to die,” (Paul). Essentially, Colson believes that one must accept the proper punishment for their wrongdoings, even if that is death, and that “by not punishing moral evil the authorities are not performing their God-appointed responsibility in society,”(Colson). He also calls attention to “...the fundamental truth of biblical anthropology: the soul that sins must die; sin incurs a debt that must be paid.” Colson has also argued the sacredness of human life.
