    Shalom.

    I mean what is the punishment according to God's law? What is the punishment for?

    How does the United States of America law, or American law, read? What does God's law, the Ten Commandments, say? How does it read?

    Are the Ten Commandments a part of the law of the United States of America? What is the foundation for the law of the United States of America? What does United States law say about the Ten Commandments and the commandment against adultery?

    Why do you say we do not execute adulterers? I do not know what you were thinking by execute. I do not want to execute anyone.

    Shalom.

    Children who are disobedient should be put to death.

    Because if adultery is deserving of death, then it is important if we do not carry out that sentence, to know why not.

    God's commandments include what should happen if there is a violation. If you do not understand God's law it is important to say that you should not jump to conclusions. If you break a commandment, and there is a death penalty for it, there is a way in which you should die. It is not to be killed any way. If you are a witness you may be able to testify. I recommend learning God's law so that you can observe it properly. Have you decided if you believe that it is for today? Do you know that God's law is about love of God and love of your neighbor? You are commanded to love God and others. If you do not know how to do so you can learn how.

    Shalom.

    Jacob

    Do you know what God's law could not do (Ro8:3KJV), and that it could not bring life (Gal3:21KJV)?

    Shalom.

    I have read the entire Bible, and I accept it all. You may need help with understanding or interpretation. Have you started at the beginning with Torah? Then we have the Prophets and the Writings. The TaNaKh is before Matthew through Revelation.

    Consider the following.


    Deuteronomy 30:15, 19, 20
    Deuteronomy 32:45-47

    Romans 7:10

    The scripture Romans 7:10 does not cancel out or invalidate anything that has come before. It has to do with how Paul was thinking and what he learned from the commandment, even in regard to Jesus Christ. See Romans 7:25.

    Also, it is my belief that Matthew 5:17-20 is talking about more than just the Ten Commandments. The Torah has 613 commandments.

    Shalom.

    John 1:40-41 NASB, John 1:49 NASB - 40 One of the two who heard John speak and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41 He found first his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which translated means Christ). 49 - Nathanael answered Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel."
