If you believe in a higher power & the death penalty...

Just wonder, if you are religious how do you justify the death penalty?  What happened to, "Thou shalt not kill"?

I am spiritual but not religious.

I believe in the death penalty.

Our bodies are only organic objects our spirits inhabit. Killing the body does not kill the soul, but it does keep a wicked spirit from doing ill against others, and serves as a punishment for the wicked---they can no longer enjoy the playground that is human life on planet Earth.

The original and correct commandment says murder not kill.

 Thou shalt not kill is referring to the death of innocent people (translated from the same word that means murder if I remember correctly). 

God carried out the dealth penalty plenty of times in the Bible and ordered people to do so.

But what happens to the executioners when they kill/murder someone who is later found to be innocent?  Are they then murderers?

But, please, I ask again, "Are they then murderers"?
