Jesus Wrote in the Sand

Similar to the woman caught in adultery (cf. John 7 – 8), the homeless in contemporary society and their perceived shortcomings of sloth and addictions are often judged by those who are not so faultless themselves. The story in John, and its messages of not being quick to condemn when one is not blameless and tempering justice with mercy, have endured in Christian thought for 2,000 years. Both "he that is without sin, cast the first stone" and "go, and sin no more" have found their way into our common language usage.

Recently a new poll was launched here at Homeless In America . . . Jesus defended his divine mercy for sinners when he wrote in the sand protecting the woman caught in adultery from certain angry and violent self-righteous church leaders of his day. In your opinion, what do you think he wrote?

The secret sins of the priests and Pharisees.

A dividing line between the merciful on one side and the unmerciful on the other.

All the above.

None of the above.
