Sin No More

 
Jesus said to her, "Neither do I pass sentence on you; be going on, and sin no more.” John 8:11
 
Many people miss this part of the story about the woman caught in adultery.  Jesus told the accusers, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.”  But after they left, He told her that He would not stone her either, but that she should stop sinning.  Jesus mixed love and justice.  He loves us, but He also wants us to stop doing the things that hurt us and others.  Jesus does not condone sin, but tells us to turn away from it.  Jesus not only forgives but He also warns.
