    That is the wrong question, since it implies that we enjoy the death of the wicked.

    The right question is whether adulterers are worthy of death according to the judgment of God.

    Romans 1:32
    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.


    The right question is whether adultery is a sin unto death.

    1 John 5:16-17
    16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
    17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

    Learn to read what is written.

    Don't you though?
    Or at the very least enjoy dispensing justice upon the wicked ....on the behalf of God?

    Say to them: As I live, says the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel? - Ezekiel 33:11 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...1&version=NKJV

    Scripture says that people who commit crimes worthy of death should be put to death.

    You're attempting to make an appeal to motive. That is a logical fallacy.

    Then give it up to God. He doesn't need your interference.
