Iran confirms man stoned to death for adultery
In a rare confirmation, Iran on Tuesday said a man convicted of adultery was stoned to death last week in a village in the northern part of the country, Iran's judiciary spokesman said.

Jafar Kiani was stoned to death in Aghchekand village, 200 kilometers (124 miles) west of the capital, Teheran, on Thursday, Ali Reza Jamshidi told reporters. It was the first time in years that Iran has confirmed such an execution.

"This verdict was carried out Thursday," Jamshidi told reporters.

Death sentences are carried out in Iran after they are upheld by the Supreme Court. Under Iran's Islamic law, adultery is punishable by stoning. ...

I wonder who cast the first stone???
By the way, I am not justifying adultery. Even most Christians seem to think it is the only sin...

The Jews could not stone that woman (or any other adulterer) at that time because they were ruled by the Romans and were not at liberty to carry out capital punishment, hence the petition to Pilate to crucify Jesus.

I think the Pharisees were trying to trick Jesus into saying, "Yes she should be stoned" which would put Him at odds with the Roman government which did not allow such a thing. Or, if He said, "No she should not be stoned," they would say He was disobeying the Law.

The Lord turned their trickery back on them and whatever He wrote on the ground was convicting enough to send them on their way ashamed of themselves.

As far as Iran goes, at the moment I'm more concerned about their position on nuclear weapons . . .

I wonder what America would be like today if we had threatened to stone those who commit adultery over the last 50 years?

America does not think of adultery as a crime nor does she even rebuke it any more.

Many of our "leaders" (church, political, judicial) are involved in this and we continue to hear more in the media every week.

I argue that these islamic nations are not weakened by these occurences, and in fact have their societies strengthened by them.

It is impossible for "grace" itself to rule at anytime, just as it is impossible for "law" by itself to rule...
It is "Christ" the King who RULES, and it is he who gives grace as he please, and who commands obedience to his law.
Without "law" there is no sin, and if there is no sin, then there is no need for grace.

COMMON SENSE;
God commands many types of criminals to be put to death, (especially murderers). Now, does he command only the "sinless" to be the executioners? NO, if so then he would of made void his own own commandment. For there are none who are sinless, therefore no one could ever be put to death for his crime. (this would make God a very bad lawgiver)

God (nor Jesus) does not command the sinless to carry out execution by stoning. Otherwise, there would be no such thing as the death penalty. God only commands that those who are innocent of the sin being condemned can be the executioners. Makes perfect sense.

The women caught in adultery could not be stoned because it was an unlawful trial, and there was no pharisee there who could throw the first stone without breaking the Law of Moses himself..that is why they left.
Jesus knew the Law better then they, and he used it to convict the pharisee's own hearts.

Jesus confirms the death penalty, not ends it

Shawn, do you really believe that EVERY man in that crowd was an adulterer? You read more into the text than is there. Jesus was, in fact, teaching what He taught in many other places. In the spiritual kingdom that He is the King of, grace rules. In the physical OT kingdom of Israel, the Law ruled. I know you will accuse me of excusing sin. I will stand with Jesus and say, "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone". I am a separatist Baptist. However, I understand that in biblical separation, the goal is always reconciliation; either between the sinner and God, or the wayward child of God and his Father. I, to often, have carried out the letter of the Law while forgetting that, if God were to hold my sin against me, I would be condemned to Hell. Thank God for His marvelous grace given to us through the shed blood of the SINLESS Lamb of God!!!

This reminds me of that old Bob Dylan song about...."Everybody must get stoned". "They'll stone you when your walking in the door...they'll stone you when your walking 'cross the floor".

By ridiculing the stoning of an adulterer...You are in fact ridiculing the God who commanded adulterers to be stoned...
Granit, Islam is evil...but not because they stone adulterers...In fact, being God commanded such to be done, I would go so far as saying that stoning an adulterer (legally), is in fact righteousness (justice)...Wow, Islam actually performed true justice, by obeying the law of God...Now if they would just obey the rest of the law of God and repent and believe the gospel.

Leviticus 20:10
If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Note: Jesus never commanded the women caught in adultery to not be stoned...Only that the trial was in error, because of the adulteress sins of the pharisees...They had not right to condemn her. Jesus called them adulterers as well; you cannot throw a stone at someone as guilty if you are guilty of the SAME sin. The law commands the first witness to throw the first stone, but he cannot be guilty of the sin himself...That's why Jesus said to "throw the first stone"...he did not say that stoning adulterers was wrong, only that the Law of God was to be upheld properly, not like the pharisees were trying to do.

If only the USA would do the same.

Perhaps they've got some sinless people over there?

What a charming religion.

John 8
4 they say to him, Teacher, this woman has been taken in the very act, committing adultery.
5 Now in the law Moses has commanded us to stone such; thou therefore, what sayest thou?
6 But this they said proving him, that they might have [something] to accuse him [of]. But Jesus, having stooped down, wrote with his finger on the ground.
7 But when they continued asking him, he lifted himself up and said to them, Let him that is without sin among you first cast the stone at her.
8 And again stooping down he wrote on the ground.
9 But they, having heard [that], went out one by one beginning from the elder ones until the last; and Jesus was left alone and the woman standing there.
10 And Jesus, lifting himself up and seeing no one but the woman, said to her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? Has no one condemned thee?
11 And she said, No one, sir. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
