Unworthy Stoners

When we as Christians fall or see others among us fall, we are to lament and pray for our fallen brothers and sisters, not seek to mock them. We have a faith of forgiveness and restoration, not condemnation. The woman in scripture who was involved in an adulterous relationship was brought before the Lord for stoning. They sought her embarrassment and public shaming as well as condemnation. The Lord gave them none, but turned it on them saying in effect, yes, she is guilty and worthy of punishment, but which of you is so clean yourself as to administer it? They were smart enough to get going. Some of us are not so wise, thinking our filthy selves worthy of heaving stones and we condemn ourselves by each one we would cast.
