Cherry Picking: Keep It In Context! If You Knew The Scriptures, You Would Be Saying, “Thank You For The Warning”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

“He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” -John 8:7

Keeping it in context, what did the Lord say after this?

The modern Gospel proclaimers are at it again. They are doing their best to gut the pith and the marrow of the Gospel’s meaning by misconstruing and omitting the Scriptures.  In the end, this is called deconstructionism, or reinterpreting.  They seek to tear down its meaning to mean what they want it to mean.  In short, they cherry-pick.

In referring to John 8:7, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

The posted comments made by the modern gospel proclaimers were:

“Amen for that,” “Who are we to judge” or how about this one, “I’m not picking up that stone,” or “I know what that feels like.”

These comments were made as if to suggest that this was the whole of the meaning.  No, keep it in context!  The Church is to judge according to the Judge’s Words (Deuteronomy 4:6; John 7:24).  Look at what the threats of being stoned brought her.

Friends, Jesus is the standard, not fallen man (Acts 17:31; Hebrews 9:27).  We hold to the Scriptures, in context, not in man’s opinions out of context.

Once again, we have here those who clearly lack understanding, selectively picking and choosing what it is that they like, and what it is that they don’t like.  Friends, it does not work this way.

Furthermore, for those who wrest the Scripture out of context, understand this:  Instead of saying “Thou shalt not judge,” you should be saying “Thank you for the warning!” (Psalm 19:11)

Let me Scripturally explain:

The woman in John chapter 8 was caught in the act of adultery and the Scripture says she must die.

“And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.  Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?”
This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

Many men of God believe that Jesus was stooping down writing the sins of those that were present by making reference to the 10 Commandments (Exodus 20).  Then Jesus said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

They left one by one because they were all guilty of what this woman was accused of doing.

What I ask is what was used to bring this woman to Christ?  The Law (Psalm 19:7; Galatians 3:24), the knowledge of her sin (Romans 3:20; 1 John 3:4).

What drove her to seek the Lord’s mercy and grace?  The knowledge of her impending judgment!

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” -2 Corinthians 5:10

Notice that the Pharisees did not stay because of their self-righteousness because, to them, Jesus was a stumbling block (1 Corinthians 1:23).

When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, “Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?”

She said, “No man, Lord.” And Jesus said unto her, “Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”

Jesus said, “GO AND SIN NO MORE.”

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” -John 8:3-12

Finally, in John 8: 16, Jesus says “ And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.”

The modern-day churchgoers make this chapter of John out to be the very opposite of its very meaning and intent by withholding everything in between.  Beware!

“Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God.” -2 Corinthians 5:11

Now, you can understand that the Pharisees used the law as a schoolmaster to bring this woman unto Christ, in her now knowing the impending judgment which is before her (they were going to stone her to death, which was the consequence of her sins), sought mercy from Christ in the salvation of her soul leading her on in grace when He again said, “Go and sin no more.”
