Before we move on to that, I asked for your opinion of a specific act by Jesus: the adulterous woman brought before Him sinned and was unrepentant, so it would've been justice if she was put to death, and He could've. However, Jesus gave her time, and the possibility to arrive at repentance and holiness, if she wished to reach them, rather than put her to death without the opportunity. How is that act not merciful?
Because he made that cruel law in the first place.

It doesn't. Do you think the act of giving an individual the opportunity, and the means to avoid death, is merciful or unmerciful?

Unmerciful, as he created the cruel law in the first place. How many times do I have to say this? We are done here too.

Unmerciful, as he created the cruel law in the first place.
Definition of "merciful": "bringing someone relief from something unpleasant". Death, for example, is unpleasant. Jesus giving the adulterous woman time, and the means to avoid death, is by definition merciful.

This is junior level logic and reason, but you've decided to abandon those intellectual virtues, before you'll concede to a positive about God.

We won't move on to that unless you admit Jesus was merciful towards the adulterous woman.

We are done here too. You have broken your promise to answer my question, but I think we all know the answer anyway. Your Jesus made up that cruel law In the first place when he was The Papa. For the life of me, I don't know why you find it that hard to own up to it.

No, I repeatedly asked you a question regarding Jesus and the adulterous woman, but each time you gave an evasive answer. So, I said we wouldn't move on to your question until you properly answered mine. That'd be fair.

Now, the definition of "merciful" is: "bringing someone relief from something unpleasant". Death, for example, is unpleasant. Jesus having given the adulterous woman time, and the means to avoid death, is by definition merciful as you know, but won't admit publicly. You did say Jesus should've put her to death, which means He should've been unmerciful, despite having complained about how God is unmerciful...

He's not for reasons already explained to you.
