Notice the anger from pro-abortion apologists

Seeing as there's still murder and other offense that the OT considered capital offenses, your situation isn't applicable.

You're not paying attention.
Also, even if no one committed an offence that had capital punishment, that wouldn't do away with capital punishment being part of the law.
Correct. That is why Christ and Paul clarify their position by explicitly pointing out this is only applicable to those who NO LONGER SIN.

So the OT is only applicable to Jews and the NT is only applicable to Christians? I guess now the Right won't be seeing laws based on the Bible as it doesn't apply to the broader temporal society that includes non-Christians.
 
Nope. Paul refutes that in his letter to the Romans. He points out that "all" have failed to live up to God's one and only standard.

Coming back to the topic at hand, has civil capital punishment for the religious offenses enumerated in the OT been abrogated?

For example, if man has an affair with a married woman, should they be put to death by the State as prescribed in Leviticus 20:10?

The Old Testament didn't make any distinction between civil and religious. They were one and the same. It was a cult with God as its leader. There is no abrogation of punishment. In fact, justice was carried out leading to a New Covenant which precludes the possibility of transgressions leading to punishment. In other words, those who don't transgress God's law, are not punished. This is the exact same law as the Old Covenant. The only difference being the new covenant has people who don't actually transgress God's law.

What State?

Fully aware of that.

Christians can still sin as in commit certain acts that transgress God's law, there's just a different form of religious purification.

.What State?

The civil government, like for instance, the US government and the various state governments.

So, again, if a man has an affair with a married woman, should the State put them to death?

Then I don't see why you're asking the question in the first place.

God didn't make any covenant that utilizes the US Government or any other state governments.

There's no point in bothering. The damned are already dead and condemned. I don't know of any State laws that require death for cases of adultery.

The wages of sin is death. God pays wages.

The wages have not changed. Today God gives you until you die to repent and get remission of sins. Hell is still the death sentence.

Why do you waste time asking that? How many times can we answer that by asking you if Jesus stoned the adulterous woman.
Shocking how the heathen can't pay attention.

Jesus didn't stone the adulteress because he said he wasn't without sin (Mark 10:18). And he condemned all remarried divorcees to hell unless they remain celibate and repent their adulterous marriages.

He provided stipulations though, e.g. "God and sin no more". When that's not the case, Jesus isn't so forgiving. For example, he also says this: "For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death." Jesus had no problem condemning those who were engaging in hypocrisy by dishonoring their parents.

Context is key, and the fact is that the Mosaic law was for no one other than the chosen children of Israel who entered into that covenant with God. Everyone else has a death sentence by default. "For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law:" Romans 2:12 God has no double standard. God is not a respecter of persons (vs. 11).
 
Is that why Jesus condemned all remarried divorcees to hell unless they remain celibate and repent for their adulterous marriages (Matt 5:27-30 Mark 10:11-12 Exodus 20), and why the bible commands the termination of pregnancies of adulteresses (Numbers 5:20-28)?
What did God do with Sodomites? He 'aborted" all but Lot and 2 daughters

Is that why Lot sexually assaulted the future wives of his sons-in-law after he tried to pimp them and mocked his sons-in-law when they wanted to know what Lot was doing with the two blokes he picked up down-town (Gen 19)?

Mercifully aborted them. Their sin was in being hopelessly self absorbed by their own lusts and desires. They had become blind to any sense of compassion for their fellow human beings. When people become so enamored of themselves they become enraged at anyone who interferes with their self adoration. The question then becomes, does sodomy lead to this behavior, or does this behavior lead to sodomy? Regardless, evidently there's only one solution in God's eyes.

The stories in Gen 18 & 19, however, say nothing at all about anal sex by the men and women and children in S & G, or about Lot's sons-in-law being "hopelessly self absorbed by their own lusts and desires" when they wanted to know what Lot was up to with the two blokes he picked up down-town.

Or are you claiming that Lot's sons-in-law wanted to have sex with the two blokes instead of their future wives, and why Lot then mocked his sons-in-law (Gen 19:14) and tried to pimp their future wives (Gen 19:8) who he later sexually assaulted in a cave after sneaking out of Zoar with a stack of grog?

The story in Gen 18 says nothing about anal sex either, but describes how a god shared a non kosher meal with Abraham and discussed the number of righteous children in S&G, and how the god then walked down to count them since it was neither an omniscient or omnipresent type of god.

And Jesus said nothing about homosexuality or anal sex either and said the S&G story was about in-hospitality (Matt 11:24).

The biblical laws like our civil laws, however, are obviously just man-made since the ten commandments etc didn't apply to Abraham et al and their ancestors. Which is why it wasn't morally wrong for Abraham to have a sexual relationship with his sister Sarah and commit adultery with Hagar. And why it wasn't morally wrong for Abraham to kill his son as a sacrificial meal or for Cain(an) to kill his brother Abel or for Noah's father to kill a young man (Gen 4).

You have no clue what this thread is about.

100% false claim.

Cain(an) to kill his brother Abel

Satan wants haterz to distort The Word

So where does the bible say that the ten commandments etc applied to Abraham and his ancestors, and that it was morally wrong for Abraham to have a sexual relationship with his sister Sarah and commit adultery with Hagar? And where does the bible say that it was morally wrong for Abraham to kill his son as a sacrificial meal or for Cain to kill Abel or for Noah's father to kill a young man (Gen 4)?
