They say unto Him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act (John 8:4).
The origin of sex is a puzzlement for evolutionists, many of whom think nonsexual methods should have dominated reproductive processes. But sex did not evolveJesus designed it, taught how it should be used, and is Himself the solution to the problem of selfish sex.
Many who do not build their lives on His teachings find themselves floating in the ebb and flow of sexual confusion and trauma. One such person was a woman . . . taken in adultery, in the very act (John 8:4).
The Lord had forbidden adultery (Exodus 20:14), and Jesus had extended this commandment: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: but I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart (Matthew 5:27,28). Adultery and lust both are sinful!
Since He had come to save sinners, however, Jesus did not speak words of condemnation to this woman. Instead, He stooped down, wrote on the ground and said to those seeking her death, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her (John 8:7). When all had left except the woman and Jesus, He knew she had repentant faith in her heart, so He said: Go, and sin no more (v.11).
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). All who repent and trust Jesus are in Him. Just as the waters of judgment did not drown those in Noahs Ark, so there is no condemnation to those in Jesus Christ.
He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32). PGH
