teachings of say JW and Mormon and Islam .

Brother, you’re not understanding our discussion. Is this worshipping of false gods a private matter, or is it an open and blasphemous promoting of idolatry in society? If it is the latter, then what does the law say?

God would permitting that in this present age, but will be strictly enforcing His Law when Jesus returns.

The Lord does not need any to assist Him.

I completely agree. Why, then, are you appearing to argue, unless I am misunderstanding you, that the punishment for man stealing should be different than murder “because it’s not the same”? The law treats them the same.

No, it isn't, but since God thought the underlying equity punishment was death, we have to wonder why that "fit" the crime. Otherwise, many of God's punishments in the OT weren't equitable.
God treated and judged Israel though at a higher standard, as they were the chosen and called people's and nation by God to be His covenant people, so He demanded more of them.In same way, if a Christian nation was called to obey God samevway, all judgements would remain the same.I just do not see any nation in history like that save Israel though.

Still haven't answered my question, and I am *not* a theonomist, so running the typical anti-theonomy talking points at me doesn't phase me. What is the *fittingness* of the punishment to the crime?

Unless one has killed another, scriptures to me under t his Covenant relationship do not seem to automatically mean death penalty is appropriate always.
