Give thanks for your reasoning. I personally didn't say I was going to stone anybody. There will be the appointed time when such punishments shall be administered, and Hashem shall make it known who shall recieve the stone. Either way, the stoning, the physical death, is a means of corporal punishment, in my opinion (which I'm sure you're aware of by now). Tough love, the same way I tell my brother to give my child a spank when he acts up and I'm not there to do it. But if you do not live by the Bible, and if you claim that it is simply the work of man that is not the word of Hashem handed down (which is a more valid point in the canonized Gospels, the Acts, and Epistles), then what is the guidelines of your faith? If you do believe in HIM (which I'm assuming you do, being on this RASTA message board from long time), where does this belief stem from if not the Bible?
