Excellent post, Dr. Brown. I have tremendous respect for your education, experience, and cultural influence for the Christian world view. And though you have forgotten more about the Bible than I currently know, I would like to disagree on one important point. While I do not address the morality / immorality of the practice, you stumbled when you stated that Jesus (in the passage regarding the "adulterous woman") spoke against stoning for adultery. If you go back to those verses, with no pre-conceived notions, you will clearly see that Christ did no such thing - in fact, He explicitly gave His divine approval of and permission to proceed with the practice, in effect, saying, "Ok, go ahead, then."

(With the obvious qualifier that the executioners, themselves, could have no personal sins.) Again, I argue not for or against the practice, nor wish to discuss whether it is appropriate now. Simply to state that Jesus implicitly agreed with a person receiving the accepted penalty for a specific violation, and would not forced into dealing with this side issue when His intention was to teach that 1) sin is serious and has horrible consequences, and 2) His mission was to forgive and free people from it. So, other than this one disagreement, all I can say is, keep up the good work, Doc!

You are misreading what he wrote. He didn't say Jesus spoke against stoning for adultery. He sai Jesus spoke against the stoning of the ADULTERESS.

Fresh off his attack on America’s gun control laws, Piers Morgan set his sights on another set of laws that trouble him, the laws of Moses and the Bible. But before he called for an amendment to the Bible to recognize “gay rights,” Morgan actually asked his guest, Pastor Rick Warren, a very fair question, and Warren stumbled in his answer.

Of course, Morgan’s timing could not have been worse. After all, this was a Christmas Eve interview with a Christian leader, and Morgan is not exactly riding a wave of popularity. And to compare the Bible to the Constitution shows...
