You'll find lots of laws in the law of Israel that don't make sense. Some of that will be cultural - you have never experienced living in that culture so you will have no context. The other reason is that you don't understand how it all fits together - that God actually designed the law to be like that so that they would accept the savior when he finally came.

Off the top of my head - the death of firstborns in Egypt (Exodus); killing people who don't believe (in Deuteronomy); drowning the entire world (Genesis); God helping the Israelites destroy Jericho (Joshua); Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis)...and many, many, MANY more.

I was asking the OP if this was intended to be a discussion for Christians, which I really thought it was until I saw people laughing.at what people believe and saying it is totally unbelieveable.

Sorry - run that past me again?
Do people still believe adultery is a sin?
Obviously in this country people aren't stoned to death for sleeping outdside of their marriage (because we have realised that is kinda more wrong) ...but people in other countries that have a similar version of this 'law' (commandment) still in THIS modern age are being killed for adultery.
