"He That Is Without Sin, Cast The First Stone"

He that is without sin, cas the first stone - John chapter 8 - verse 7

When Jesus made this statement to the women's accusers, he knew what he was doing. He already knew, that not even one stone would hit the ground. Her accusers had their own sins to worry about. Jesus knows all of our sins and transgression and he knows that none of us can judge or point our fingers at one another. We're all guilty of some kind of sin. Your sin might not be as big as my sin, but the fact is,that it's sin anyway. It doesn't stop the big time hypercrites from judging us about our sins, but we must not forget what Jesus said. If we judge, we will be judged. We must be aware of our indignities for the most part. The bible tells us the only way, we can tell anyone about doing wrong or sinning is to get our own life in order. That means for us to clean up our own house before we can tell someone else, how to clean up theirs. We should get the mote out of your eye before you can help our brother to get the beam out of his. If you don't want anyone judging you for your actions, then you should leave other peoples actins alone.

Take care of your own business before you can take care of anyone else's. In other words mind your own business and leave the other fellows alone. We judge people for their sins and transgressions in their lives without considering the errors of our own ways. We know that it's impossible to do that unless we're living a sin free life. I think that's a hard chore in this world. There are so many temptations, sins, iniquities, and transgressions to live totally sin free. My mom once told me, that if I would live my life totally free of sin here on this earth, that God would come down and get me, because this world is so full of sin and that to stay here. Staying here would only get me dirty again. Even King Solomon as wise as he was, stated these verses in Ecclesiastes: Be not righteous over much, neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself. Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time. For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

These are all famous verses of King Solomon, telling us about sin and righteousness and letting us know that there a balance between the good and the bad, and we have to find that balance between the two and live our lives accordingly. I think the balance between the two is living as closely to not sinning and committing less iniquities as possible to balance it out. I think treating our brothers and sisters in Christ the way we want to be treated will help in the process.. We know that all things are possible with God, so with Gods help we can live a practically sin free life style. If we live our lives according to Gods word we want have any reason to cast stones at anyone.

Good afternoon "creativeone59" this is a great hub. I wrote one that is on the same principle entitled "Drop the Stones", it is the only solution. Interestingly enough, Jesus was and is the only one who would qualify to throw the first stone, being sinless. Yet it wasn't His heart thrust to teach how to throw stones, but how to drop the stones. I invite you to peruse my hub on this topic. We are saying the same things but in way the Holy Spirit directs. Voted up, awesome and beautiful. God bless you.

Planet maker, what do you want me to say, I try to live by the bible and what the word says,we're not to judge or we will be judged. I know people want to hear what make them feel good whether it's truth or a lie. I know we all have to choose what we will live by. Thanks again for you visit and comment.

So letting people slide with live and let live without judgment gets blown out of the water with 2 Timothy 4

Thank you Planet Maker, for your visit and your comment, I totally agree with you and Timothy, in fact my calling was through both books of Timothy. These books are teaching truth that's already happening today. Godspeed. creativeone59

Then how do we obey this part of the Bible?

2 Timothy 4

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge:

2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage —with great patience and careful instruction.

3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

Thank you Lamont, when I read about it in the bible,I thought it was funny, when Jesus said you that is without sin cast the first stones, because no stones ever hit the ground and that alone was kind of funny, because we always judge people and forget our faults, but we can't do that can we?.

Great hub,sister :) I agree,we must think of our sins first,we must never ever judge other people,for we will be judged,we must be kind and forgiving towards those,who did something wrong. Christ forgave the adulteress,forgave the prostitute,and forgave even those who crucified Him,becaue they didn't know what they were doing.Harshness,and being unmerciful is a sin too,in my eyes,we must pray God to give us a good heart.

God bless you ;)

I love it. This has always been my motto. I believe in a loving/forgiving God.

It is difficult for us humans to let go of judgment. This is one of the things we need to learn. We do not harm ourselves and we do not harm others but we can harm ourselves and we can harm others by judging. The comparison divides us.

Thank you Unchained Grace,it is indeed a pleasure to have you here to bless my hubs with your presence, I appreciate you and your visit. You are correct is saying sometimes we forget,the path from which we came, but we must ask God for humbleness of heart so that we don't forget that which is important to God. I try to live my life according to God truth and try to treat everyone the exact way which I wished to be treated. Thank you for leaving your precious words of wisdom. May God bless you and your and continue to bless your words. please come again. Godspeed. creativeone59

As some reach a certain level in their walk with Jesus, there is a tendancy to forget the path they walked upon to get where they are. They quickly forget where they came from.

Let us not forget the times we chose to turn left without consulting He who set us on the journey in the first place. Let us not ignore the beauty He has created for us to view as we take our journey and let us not also forget the tragedy we have seen along the way, as it was placed there to teach us something.

Those whom are quick to judge are slow to forgive others yet they seek immediate forgiveness of those offences they themselves have committed against others.

It is with haste that we should go before God for His mercies and forgiveness concerning the sins we have ourselves committed.

When we choose to teach, preach or prophesy in His name let us be reminded we shall be held to a much higher degree of responsibility. Let us be mindul of our own witness before we seek to undermine that of another, for we know not where they've been and where their journey has taken them.

Creativeone59, this is my first comment on one of your Hubs and I thank you for these wise words.

Glorybeenow, I think you are right in your assessment of peopl, thinking the wrong way, and sometimes I have m y moments to, but I try to pary about issue with God and ask him to enlighten me and teach me truth because I wouldn't want to mislead anyone. Now this is my opiion of the word saint and about the judging. I think people forget that until we are raised from the dead in our uncoruptible bodies as godly saint, only then we can judge people or angels or who ever. but as long as we are living here on this earth no one has a godly right to judge anyone. Glorybeenow is a good title, beleve it or not, I once had a cousin name Glory Bea, thenk you so much for stopping by my hubs and leaving your precious words of wisdom I truly appreciate you. Godspeed. Creativeone59

Bless you creativeone59! You are correct, not one of us is free of sin. Sometimes though I think people misinterpret what the Bible says, it's one of the reasons I am trying to commit the Bible's teachings to memory. Some take things way out of context, even though they know it's wrong. I try to remember each and every day that I should not judge. I think the reason some people get confused on the judgment issue is this:

1 Corinthians 6:2-3 Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts? 3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?

I think most miss one tiny little word in this part of the scripture, the word being "saints", and a few assume they are saints because they are trying to "clean" up the world. These are just my thoughts based on some of the things I have heard. Confession does not mean that we are "saints". Jesus was pure, therefore he could pass judgment. There does seem to be quite a bit of confusion as to what was meant by "saints" in the Bible.

I do know that I try not to pass judgment, because it is not my place, it is a daily struggle. I really have to work on it because of my upbringing.

Any other points of view are welcome. I just wanted you to know that this hub was pretty insightful. Thank you for writing it. God bless.

Hi creativeone,

Your mother's statement reminded me of my mother's. She told me that if I choose to throw stones expect to get hard hit with those same stones.

It is hypocritical to cast stones at sinners since we are sinners ourselves, the difference being only that our sins are covered by the blood of Jesus.

Let us love in His name and for His sake. Blessings and peace!

Forever His,

I agree, sin - no matter how large or small - is still a sin in God's eyes. We shouldn't throw rocks at other people when we live in a glass house, my mother used to say. This is a great reminder Creativeone. In our own imperfection, we tend to point to what others are doing or failing to do, and forget about what we are doing or failing to do.

Sin is sin...you betcha.

There are so many temptations, sin out there in the world. I like what your Mother told you. Makes sense. I try to stay away from other's sin and keep to my own life and keeping it in order;though I do have issues with others who try to convince me that it isn't "really sin" when I know it is..if that makes sense. I judge-but I am judging me and my spirit...trying to make the right decisions of what I know is right/wrong in my life now. does that makes sense?
