Words of Comfort: Stone the Woman



"Ray, please help me on this one because it genuinely troubles me. What about the law to stone the woman taken into adultery...is Jesus saying that God is wrong to command that she be stoned."

This woman, who was taken in the very act of adultery, is like each of us. We have been caught in the act of breaking the Ten Commandments, and the moral Law calls for out death. However, God can completely forgive us because Jesus took the wrath of the Law upon Himself. That means we, like the woman, can have our case dismissed. There is no compromise because the Law is satisfied by the suffering of the cross. So take a lesson from the Scriptures. Thank God for His mercy, then like the woman, trust in Jesus, go your way and sin no more. See www.needGod.com for details.
