The scribes and the Pharisees sought to ensnare Jesus, so they brought an adulterous woman before Jesus and asked Jesus what should be done, noting that the Law of Moses commanded them to stone adulterers to death. Jesus began writing on the ground with His finger. The scribes and the Pharisees continued demanding an answer, and Jesus told them that the person among him without sin may cast the first stone at her. Jesus then returned to writing on ground. Meanwhile, the scribes and the Pharisees left one by one.
When Jesus and the woman were left alone, Jesus asked her if any of the men condemned her. She told Him that no one did, and Jesus told her that He did not condemn her either and commanded her to not sin anymore.
Now the scribes and Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery. They made her stand in the center of the court, and they said to Him,Teacher, this woman has been caught in the very act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women [to death]. So what do You say [to do with her—what is Your sentence]?They said this to test Him, hoping that they would have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and began writing on the ground with His finger. However, when they persisted in questioning Him, He straightened up and said,He who is without [any] sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.Then He stooped down again and started writing on the ground. They listened [to His reply], and they began to go out one by one, starting with the oldest ones, until He was left alone, with the woman [standing there before Him] in the center of the court. Straightening up, Jesus said to her,Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?She answered,No one, Lord!And Jesus said,I do not condemn you either. Go. From now on sin no more.]— John 8:3–8:11 (AMP)
Feminists and the Left, including non-Christians, abuse the story of the adulterous woman (John 8) for their own benefit. As Return of Kings contributor Oscar Zach notes:
Another similar example often misconstrued by feminists to condone modern female sexual immorality is the example of Jesus forgiving the adulterous woman. This example is often abused by modern women to justify their sluttiness/whoring without taking into consideration the warning which Jesus gave the woman in parting,Go and sin no more, a commandment which modern slutty women often hypocritically ignore to continue their sluttiness, while continuing to abuse Jesus’sLet he who is without sin cast the first stonestatement, to preclude judgment for their own sexual immorality.
