    No this was not Mary Magdalene who had 7 evil spirits; this was a woman caught in the act of adultery but what many read over here, was a group of men brought this woman to be judged. If she was caught in the act of adultery then where was the man? So Jesus went on to write on the ground about the men who brought her, 1 by 1 writing: where were you John the night of such and such? and he took off; on down the line he addressed the accusers about where they were until none of her accusers were left. Did each have a turn committing adultery with her and they finally got jealous because they found out she was with them all so they decided to have her judged? Moral of the story don't be willingly to accuse someone of something you yourself done.

    Luk 6:42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.
  • THOUGHTS ON JUDGING OTHERS SINS - In Reply on John 8 - 2 years ago
    Jesus was anointed with all gifts of the Holy Spirit. Specifically, in this incident He knew by the Word of Knowledge __ WHO the sinners and hypocrites were, in that mob.

    They were trying to trick Jesus into rendering a death sentence on the woman. Jesus just said, "HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN, throw the first stone."

    We have to cultivate the Mind of Christ within ourselves. We need Jesus to do that. If it feels like judging, it probably is. We need to drop all of our rocks and go get our minds renewed in the Bible.

    The Bible speaks on RIGHTEOUS judgment. If it's illegal, the police and courts are appointed by God; to settle these issues. There are soul sins, and those that are settled in courts. On THAT DAY, no one was on that jury. All were conscious of their sins.

    I always got in trouble because of judging. It was very very painful to UNLEARN IT. We can, by prayer, be released for judging others sins, but not our own sins.

    When we get cured of that__The Lord will use us to set others free too. You will love the rewards!!

    If your friend is going through this, Teach them to run TO THE CROSS, to be declared Not Guilty. Jesus paid in Blood for all of our sins.

    EXCEPTION: the sins we retain, REMAIN. Think on that.

    I'm not going to condemn anyone. It's too painful and prolonged, to get ourselves free.
