    It's irrelevant because taking the life of an adulterer's child was not the penalty for adultery per the law.
    The penalty was losing your life by being stoned to death, and GOD showed David mercy instead of imposing law upon him.

    Post a scripture story of an actual judgement and stoning of an adulterer being carried out.

    Me either.
    I couldn't recall a single story in scripture of the stoning of an adulterer being carried out.

    That would make a good trivia question, as most would probably assume there was a story about it in scripture since there is so much talk about adultery and stories of people that committed adultery.

    It was mercy not to take the life of David for his adultery.
    What do YOU call that if not mercy?

    that's the role of the individual, specifically the individual Christian, to see the unfortunate who are caught in circumstances of their own making, to see them as human, redeemable, to view them with pity and mercy

    that is not the role of the state

    the role of the state is justice

    I just don't see how one could not see mercy in it when David did not receive what was deserved per the law.
    If enforcing the law is justice, then it was not justice to not enforce the law upon David.
    So it had to be something else besides justice when David did not receive the penalty for adultery per the law.
    I don't know what you would call that except for mercy.

    Sure that's a debatable option. Your list of capital offenses extended beyond murder though.

    That's an affirmative

    The Lord struck the child that Uriahís wife bore to David, and it became very ill. 16 David therefore pleaded with God for the child; David fasted, and went in and lay all night on the ground. 17 The elders of his house stood beside him, urging him to rise from the ground; but he would not, nor did he eat food with them. 18 On the seventh day the child died.
    Even in the very best of situations, voting is still an unmitigated failure. The fact that any simple majority of individuals (mob) can determine an outcome that adversely affects the minority (mob rule) is against all natural rights. In the United State today, all who vote harm others so that they might benefit. By voting, they are also sanctioning theft of private property at the point of a gun, and the redistribution of that property to those who did not earn it.
