Thank God for Forgiveness!!

1611 KJV. Deuteronomy 22:22-30
"[22]¶ If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away euill from Israel.
[23]¶ If a damosell that is a virgin be betrothed vnto an husband, and a man find her in the citie, and lie with her:
[24]Then yee shall bring them both out vnto the gate of that citie, and yee shall stone them with stones that they die; the damosel, because shee cried not, being in the citie; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbours wife: so thou shalt put away euill from among you.
[25]¶ But if a man find a betrothed damosel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her, shall die.
[26]But vnto the damosel thou shalt doe nothing, there is in the damosel no sinne worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, euen so is this matter.
[27]For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damosel cried, and there was none to saue her.
[28]¶ If a man finde a damosel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found:
[29]Then the man that lay with her, shall giue vnto the damosels father fifty shekels of siluer, and she shalbe his wife, because he hath humbled her: he may not put her away all his dayes.
[30]¶ A man shall not take his fathers wife, nor discouer his fathers skirt."

       Tonight, at Bible class, I found out that, by rights I should've been stoned to death years ago. All those years of not following His rules really should have caused my death. That's a sobering thought. . .
       Yes, I am so very grateful I have a forgiving God!!
