in response to reader comment: Stoning of Adulterous

Submitted by Lynn (United States), Aug 31, 2010 at 08:33

You do not understand the story of the adulterous woman. You think it was about just the woman, but if you could circumcise your heart, you would know that it was also about those who wanted to stone the woman and wanted to test Jesus. What judge have you elected to judge the sins of others? Mohammad? Look what he has done. He gave a free pass to himself and his sinful heart and gave a free pass to those who were in his favor, yet he ordered the stoning, he raised the sword, and condoned the torture of those who's sins he chose to judge, without condemning himself for his grievous sins, murders, and deceits. Your prophet twisted the stories he heard to appear as if the Word left room for his debauchery while others lived under his heavy yoke.

Mohammad lived by the sword not by justice and mercy. He heard the story of Jesus and the adulterous woman and did not have the honesty to put the stone down, instead he picked it back up and used it without mercy, cold, and calculating always looking for a way to use deceit, pretending that the woman forced him to punish her. It is an excuse he often used to justify his brand of justice.
