Kill The Adulterers?

Q. I was reading an article by a homosexual Christian. They said that the bible is a book of God and is not a book about sex. I disagree, but they said something that hit me. Should women/men who commit adultery really be put to death, as Deuteronomy 22:22 says?

A. Because of the cross, sins like adultery and homosexuality no longer carry the death penalty like they did in Old Testament times. When Jesus said He didn’t come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it (Matt. 5:17) He meant the Law still stands but His death would pay the penalty for our violations. Of course this is only true for those who agree to accept it. For non-believers the penalty stands and will be extracted at the final judgment.
