CHAPTER NO :- 6 》ARCHAEOLOGICAL, HISTORICAL, LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS 》Part :- 7 》Bible is Wrong about David, David Revered, Not Reviled?

David, beloved King of the Jews, is revered by Jews and Christians alike.

WHY?

He should be reviled, vilified, hated, scorned, viewed as criminally insane, perpetrated crimes against humanity, mass murderer and more.

The Truth Is…

If David, beloved King of the Jews, had been tried in our current International Court of Justice, he would have been found guilty of Crimes Against Humanity as horrific as the worst mass murders in history (e.g. Hitler, Mao Ze-DongStalin, Pol Pot, et. al.)
Crimes Against Humanity:
particularly odious offenses that  constitute a serious attack on human dignity or grave humiliation or a degradation of one or more human beings.
Murder;
extermination;
torture;
rape;
political, racial, or religious persecution
Not only did David violate every modern sense of morals, he also violated  5 of the 10 commandments. You can count em; we’re about to puke.

All of his crimes were committed with the blessing of God who sometimes gleefully joined in the killings. David was so successful at killing and murder (and foreskin shucking) because he had more faith in God than anyone else. Thus God rewarded David with “victory” over his enemies (some of whom lived peacefully nearby). It was only after David’s faith wavered that his killing spree ended.

MORAL: Have faith in God and anything, including being able to slaughter thine enemies, is possible.

It would be hard to find anyone in the bible that God liked more than David.
(All of the text below is borrowed from Steve Wells,
the creator of the SAB and Dwindling in Unbelief)
He was directly selected by God to be king, and “the Spirit of the Lord came
upon David from that day forward.”
And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. 1 Sam.16:10-13
His heart “was perfect with the Lord” and “the Lord God of hosts was with him.”
David … grew great, and the LORD God of hosts was with him. 2 Sam.5:10
His [Solomon’s] heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. 1 Kg.11:415:3
He walked in God’s ways and kept his statutes.
And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days. 1 Kg.3:14
And (with the exception of the matter of Uriah the Hitite) he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord in his every act throughout his lifetime.
Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite. 1 Kg.15:5
He was, according to Acts, a man after God’s own heart.
And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the [son] of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will. Acts 13:22 (See also 1 Sam.13:14)
So if we want to know what type of person God likes, we need only look at David. Those who believe in the bible should try hard to imitate David, to always ask themselves “What would David Do?” in any particular situation. The two numbers following the biblical passages will be the (estimated?) body count of that passage’s carnage and the cumulative body count.
Here is that which David did that  was right in the eyes of the LORD,
  • He kills Goliath with his sling, beheads him, and carries the head back to Jerusalem. 1 Sam.17:51-57 (1,1)
    .
  • He and Saul have a contest to see who can kill the most people for God, and the women act as cheerleaders saying, “Saul has killed his thousands, and David his tens of thousands.” 1 Sam.18:6-7 (20,000, 20,001)
    .
  • He kills 200 Philistines and brings their foreskins to Saul to buy his first wife (Saul’s daughter Michal). 1 Sam.18:25-27  (200, 20,201)
    .
  • He shows cowardice and lack of faith in God when he acts like he’s crazy, scribbles on the gates of Gath, and lets spit run down his beard. All this he did in front of Israel’s enemies in the hopes that they would take him in and protect him from Saul. 1 Sam.21:12
    .
  • He “inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go and smite these Philistines? And the Lord said unto David, Go, and smite the Philistines … So David smote them with a great slaughter.” 1 Sam.23:2-5  (10,000?, 30,201)
    .
  • He “smote the land and left neither man nor woman alive.” 1 Sam.27:8-11 (20,000? 50,201)
    .
