What is ur thought after reading these evil bible passage?
Deuteronomy 22:20-22 [But if the thing is true, that evidence of virginity was not found in the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done an outrageous thing in Israel by whoring in her father's house] Chronicles 15:12-13 [And they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul, but that whoever would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether young or old, man or woman.
These verses are in the Law of Moses.
My thoughts compel me to remember John 8:
"In the Law Moses commanded [The teachers of the law and the Pharisees] to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing [Jesus]. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
My thoughts also compel me to remember James 2:13, "Judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment."
Scripture interprets scripture. One (or two) verses cannot be considered in isolation from the remaining 31,000+ verses in the Bible.
A beautiful answer, CH Elijah.
It would be good if u can spread this teaching to those religious fanatics that are currently doing stuff such as "gay discrimination" and more
The Bible teaches self-scrutiny much more than other-scrutiny. Sadly this is a point seldom recognized and rarely practiced. Other people are never targets to be vanquished by potential allies to be shown the love of Christ.
che you only gave an answer that did not address the question and never mentioned the fact that the law was fulfilled and no longer in effect. you made your point but did not address the question. typical pastor answer of no value.
Christianity has contextualized verses like that - saying that was then, this is no. So NO ONE in the Christian faith today stones women.
Conversely, you can find pictures and even video of Muslims stoning women for having had sex outside of marriage, while rape victims are routinely jailed from the "moderate" UAE to Afghanistan for extra-marital. Making matters even worse are the women staying in prison after their term for fear of being killed by family members to protect its honor.
90% of all honor killings in the world are done by Muslims, mostly for sexual impropriety like this. More than half of all murders of women in Jordan, for example, were women and girls killed by families on allegations of sex outside set rules or refusing arranged marriages.
So the problem isn't Bible verses like this or the Koran's similar verses - but Muslims in 2016 who are killing people according to these religious texts.
my thought is you have no business trying to discuss/teach something you know nothing about. . I understand you are trying to instill doubt and confusion but it is not working.
You have no understanding that the old testament laws which you insinuate are valid today, were COMPLETELY done away with (FULFILLED according to scripture) by Jesus at the cross.
Nor do you understand the reasons for the law of Moses that God gave to Israel only for a season (only until Jesus would come and FULFILL them) was actually necessary for their protection..
so go try to teach something you understand.
