The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say.”
Like the Pharisees, how many times have we passed judgement legalistically on someone? One of the biggest barriers to a saving faith in Jesus Christ has to be legalistic misconceptions about what it means to be a Christian. It’s not a set of rules (no drinking alcohol, no cussing, no fun), it’s all about making a decision to follow Christ and the changes that manifest in the heart over time. We shouldn’t be pointing fingers, we should be beckoning with open arms.
