where in that event did the woman demonstrate repentance>?
If you read your Bible more, you wouldn’t make these mistakes.

Matthew 4:17

17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

Luke 18

The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

referring to and you were right about your verses.

Sounds so spiritual to the gullible, but to those of us who refuse to be beat up by the bible, but love ALL that Jesus Christ represents by his beautiful presence within, we will not be moved by your subtle bible threats(That is what they are jimmie, deny it as much as you want)

If you followed Jesus Christ in you, you will never miis the mark. For he (not the bible) is the light unto our feet.

The religious man is a fundamentalist who exalts himself, whereas, the non-religious man is humble.

YOU detest God's Word because you only know how to use it to threaten or hurt others. You shame Jesus with with your pathetic attempts at protecting "God's Word." God needs no more of people that refuse to see it is through the cross (humility, degradation, self-sacrifice, and denial of one's "rights") that one glorifies God.

Keep to your own kind of searching of the "word." The only thing you will find is a death sentence under the "LAW." Until you find Jesus, the Bible will only speak to a heart of darkness.

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
That's right my brother. Be strong and be holy.

Based on the interactions I've seen between you and others, you haven't done that.

Woww! So very powerful, Warden. You have a gift for preaching Christ's love for us all. Wish you trusted more in that rather than possibly worrying about some eternal judgment that is not consistent with that love. We are not all one thing or the other and that is why we will need "refining" in God's pure love, but we are all "saved as by fire."
