Bible verses about stoning to death
Stoning is a form of capital punishment and it is still used today in some places. While things like being a rebellious child and being involved in witchcraft are still sins we are not to stone others to death because we are under a new covenant.
While stoning does seem harsh it helped prevent a lot of crimes and evilness. The death penalty was instituted by God and the government has the authority to determine when it is to be used.
