Christianity and the Penal Code
Psalm 103:6-14
The LORD executes righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.…

A young exile in Siberia told me that during the first part of his imprisonment the only literature given him were the Bible and the Penal Code. The intention, doubtless, was to incite to virtue on the one hand, and to warn against crime on the other. But the effect produced was to lead only to a comparison between the laws of Russia and the laws of Christ, and not to the benefit of the former.

(George Kenman.)
