In this episode, Pastor Adam tackles passages of scripture that are often weaponized against LGTBQIA+ people: the six infamous Clobber Texts.
A bonus text used against the LGBTQ is the story of the woman caught in adultery in John 8. The officials quote what the law says, but ask Jesus what they should do. Jesus responds by saying the person without sin should cast the first stone. This stops the crowd from stoning the adulterous woman and the crowd disperses. Left alone with the woman, Jesus asks if anyone is left to condemn you. When the woman says no, Jesus says to go and sin no more. The sin Jesus is referring to is the sin of self-condemnation.
Jesus stops people from using the law to harm others in this story and on other occasions.
