Religious Sin...

Quick what was the only sin that Jesus confronted publicly?

If you said religious sin then you are 100% right...

Remember the story in John 8 where the woman caught in adultery was brought to Jesus by the Scribes and Pharisee's to be condemned for her sin of adultery as quoted by Leviticus 20:10.

The big question is where was the man with whom the adultery was committed? For the text from Leviticus plainly say's " 'If a man commits adultery with another man's wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death." So where was the man?

Jesus is writing in the ground as if does not hear them all the while they continued to ask him what should be done. Finally he stands up and says "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first."

Jesus then stoops down and writes on the ground while his words convict those that cried for the woman's blood until only the woman and himself are left. Jesus then asks her "Woman where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?

Later on the debate with Scribes and Pharisee's continues where in John 8:15 Jesus plainly states this about judgment; "You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one."

Lets all say it together loudly go ahead it's OK no one will judge you "I judge no one". Wow how liberating is that statement lets try it again "I judge no one".


The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
