¿Qué Tiene que Ver Conmigo? por Teófila Gottfried

He Who Is Without Sin, Cast the First Stone
The Adulterous Woman and Her Accusers
The biblical scripture of St. John 8:3-10 reads, "And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, they say unto him, Master, this woman was taken (caught) in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us that such should be stoned, but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down and with his finger wrote on the ground as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest even unto the last and Jesus was left alone and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?"
This passage from the Christian Bible is one of a couple of scriptures that was quoted by a prostitute who claimed that she had a relationship with the Lord. Her reference to the passage was an attempt to silence her "accusers" who reminded her of the very serious sin in which she chose to live--prostitution. She pointed her finger to the crowd and said, "Jesus said, 'He who is without sin, cast the first stone.'" She had no idea where in the Bible the passage was that spoke of when the scribes and Pharisees "suggested" the stoning of the adulterous woman. She only knew how to paraphrase the scriptures she had planned to use to defend the sin of prostitution and to attempt to pass herself off as a Christian believer.
Shameful Knowledge of the Christian Bible
Bibles are plentiful in the United States, yet knowledge of God's word in the U.S.A
is so poor that it is shameful. Upon hearing the words, "He who is without sin, cast the first stone," not one person in the crowd was familiar enough with the word of God to remind the woman of the rest of what the scripture says. If someone was familiar enough, he did not speak up. People who make a habit of trying to use scripture from the Christian Bible to support and/or excuse behavior that is clearly not Christian focus only on the words they need to "justify" or avert attention away from their sin. In this case, those words were, "He who is without sin, cast the first stone."
The Rest of Jesus' Words to the Adulterous Woman
Verse eleven of St. John, chapter 8 records the last words spoken in the scripture pertaining to the stoning of the adulterous woman. Scripture says that the woman's accusers left one by one, leaving just Christ
and her; and then scripture says, "...And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee, go, and SIN NO MORE" (St. John 8:11). The "SIN NO MORE" part of this passage is always omitted by those who want to misuse the word of God to justify or to excuse what is sin. Yes, the adulterous woman received great mercy. She also receive a great command--"SIN NO MORE." She was not to continue or even to return to committing adultery. This same message is not only to the prostitute, but also to the thief, the liar, and all who would attempt to align themselves with Christianity, while choosing to habitually commit sin, by quoting, "He who is without sin, cast the first stone."
Double Portion of Elijahs Spirit: Soul Transfer in the Bible?
The second chapter of the book of II Kings is the part of the story of Elijah and Elisha with which we are dealing. Probably the most interesting thing we learn is that Elisha received a double portion of Elijah's spirit, who was taken up to heaven. This is one of the main, if not the main, biblical passage that is used to support the belief that soul transfer, also known as spirit transfer, or walk-ins, is actually a Christian concept with biblical support. Don't be deceived! Get the definitive biblical answer now.
