“So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”
King James Version (KJV)

I think that people judge people from there past even after they receive Jesus as their personal Lord and savior, and people watch them waiting on them to mess up , Jesus is only the perfect one and the judge. I pray for the people that need Jesus , he never said it would be easy!

Continuing to cast stones provides no room for repentance Jesus is a god of mercy and kindness but for those who are seeing them self as perfect and without sin God wants us to make sure that it is through the mercy of the Lord 's Grace we can learn to forgive one another he chose to ignore the accusations and kept writing in the sands instead of gathering up stones to cast at the accused this is example of his mercy towards they that have transgressed against his holy word may we praise the Lord and continue to see how Jesus is showing us it is through the mercy and kindness of our lord we can be made overcome how wonderful it is to be saved from sin God wants us to see this is more significant than the unmerrited thought of self righteousness and not having mercy or forgiveness towards one another Oh how he loves you oh how he loves us praise the Lord each year we have a right to have a religion teach love and forgiveness mercy and kindness,

@ Linda Klinkhammer: I am very sorry that happened to you. I too was raped at age 17 from an abduction. The man that sent you that is clearly trying to minimize his responsibility for what he did to you. It does not mean that you are the one that sinned. What it basically means is that all the people that wanted to stone the woman for committing adultery have all sinned in someway themselves and had no right to condemn her for what she did unless they were without sin, and as we all know Jesus was the only human being that never sinned. So he is the only one that had the right to judge her. At least that is my take on it but I could be wrong.

First of all, the rapist who sent you that verse (John 8:7) is obviously mentally unstable and evil. No blessed Christian would commit an evil act and send you quotes from the bible to condone their act to confuse or deceive you. Roman Catholics still need to clean up their closets for sexual immoralities in their church as well.
Heres what it means:
Anyone who judges another should not judge anyone if they are guilty of sin themselves. Who are they to point their finger at you when there are three more fingers on the same hand pointing back at themselves?
Only One who is sinless can judge a sinner. I am a sinner yet I know I cannot judge because of my own sins. But the One who is sinless is Jesus.

I would like to understand in plain language what this means. I'm a victim of rape and the person who did this to me sent me this passage of John 8:7. Does that mean I'm the one who sinned?
