In Somali, a 13 year-old girl went to report that she was raped by three men was dragged by authority to a stadium and stoned to death. She was alleged to commit adultery. She pleaded for her life but was ignored by those "righteous" people. In the stadium, she was buried in the ground with only her head exposed and there she was stoned by many people until she died. There was no mercy shown and no trial at all. (BBC report)

A woman caught in adultery in Jesus' days was to be stoned to death as the Law required. Jesus came and told the people, "Whoever is without sin, cast the first stone". Did Jesus break the Law? No! He died on her behalf!

Laws must be just and fair for everyone! Jesus did not die for the rich and the famous but everyone! And Jesus did not come for the 'righteous' (like those who cast stones on the poor child) but to save the sinners!

PS: This post is not for the faint-hearted. And it is not for Christians to get angry with people but to have the urgency for preaching the gospel!
