    Is that supposed to be another example of your "rational discussion"?
    yes, it was a humorous attempt to respond to your silly statement

    sorry you missed that

    He was alive when he was guilty of adultery.

    Perhaps it was to demonstrate mercy instead of law.

    Did the law say not to stone an adulterer that GOD had other plans for?

    Add compassion, basic human understanding and empathy to that as well. Reading the legalists on here is on par with a chick tract at times.

    How do you determine when it is contrary to GOD's will to stone an adulterer to death per the law?

    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.

    For me I guess I have to conclude that sex before marriage is not always adultery punishable by death even though I grew up with marriage being between one man and one woman, such that sex before marriage is either adultery being sex with another man's wife or adultery sex with someone who may become someone else's wife (spouse) to be even if there is no engagement / betrothal that has taken place. Being Jewish now I understand that there may be a penalty for this sex and that two people may become married after rape if she will accept him (consensual sex outside of marriage). But then if she does not accept him does the rapist go free if it was consensual or does the rapist get punished?

    They can't do that if they're dead.

    they're going to be dead eventually, one way or another

    if they're sentenced to death, it may serve to focus their mind and speed up their decision
