It is just that in Christianity there is the example of Jesus and Mary 
Magdalene and his exhortation "Go and never sin again", where the 
similar example in Islam have to do with a man that went to Muhammad to 
confess his sin (conjugal infidelity), Muhammad three times pretended to 
not hear nothing and the fourth he condemned the man to be killed.

I leave to the readers the type of religious interpretations and 
religious laws that can be derived from two so different episodes.

For help, in Islamic law, is someone confess four times the same crime, 
it is the same as four witness testify against him.
