Valley News and Views iiiiiiiii~'i~ ...... i!i!!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! i@ii !:iliiiiiE!i ~'iii!iiiiii4:i:ili~oliiii! Page 7 October, 03, 2013 This week I want to take another look at ways in which religion and/or religious people oftentimes are more of a hindrance than a help to people coming to Christ. In John 8 the author shares the story of an adulterous woman who was brought to Jesus by men hoping to trap Him in His words or recommendations for her punishment. The Law, the scribes and Pharisees quickly reminded Jesus, demanded "that such should be put to death by stoning" (v:5). These hypocrites didn't care about the Law, neither did they care about the woman. There was no thought of restoration or redemption, only that the letter of the law be followed. Jesus recognized this, so He said to those standing around, "Any one of you who has not sinned go ahead and take the lead in stoning the woman" (v:7). Each man slowly let the rocks slip through their fingers as they made their way through the assembled crowd and disappeared from sight. When the last man was gone, Jesus turned to the woman, and said, "Neither do I condemn thee, go, and sin no more" (v:ll). God's heart is redemption, not condemnation. This truth is clearly shown in John 3:17. "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world: but that the world through him might be saved." Some religious people todayhave taken the reality of God's mercy to the opposite extreme, in that a person can do almost anything against God's Law and still be assured heaven is his future. This is at least as dangerous an attitude as the Pharisees desire for condemnation. We must remember that while God's heart is saving people and giving them a new start in life, He will judge those who do not repent and "sin no more".

Along the Way Continued From Page 4 forth in the wind, I see the backdrop of blue skies as the sun glimmers against the leaves. A single ray sneaks in past the curtain and flows across the back of the couch where one of our beloved cats is basking in its warmth. I think about how very much I have to be grateful for in my life and say a silent prayer of thanks for the manyblessings, some of which I maynot even be aware of, that God has bestowed on us. The phone rings and on the other line is my husband calling just to say, "I love you." Today I shall offer up to the universe the gift of a grateful heart hoping perhaps the flow of my gratitude will extend to the corridors of your lives.
