He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."
The pharisees then all drop there stones and leave one by one. After they are all gone Jesus speaks to the woman:"Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you? (...) Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
Jesus was very clear: 'You sinned, and what you did was wrong. Don't do it again, but I do not condemn you.'
Today Christians seem to go to one of two extremes. If this case were presented to the church today there would be two main responses. One side would respond exactly like the pharisees: "Let's grab our stones and stone her!" The other side would say: "Oh that's okay. God knows it's hard to resist having sex with multiple people. When He said "Don't commit adultery" it was really just a guideline, but He knows we can't really follow that. So go ahead and keep doing what you're doing."
We may not be saying these words exactly but these are the messages convey. Neither of them match with Jesus. This is the reason people look at the church like Gahndi did. They see how Jesus had a great philosophy and great commands, but they don't see us following them. Many people probably have the attitude of: "If His own followers don't do what He says then why should I?"
It is time for the church to be filled with Christians, with followers of Christ! Because so far Christians have seemed to be a minority in our church and that is sad!
