Missing the Point on David; Missing the Point of Scripture Altogether

In trying to understand the obvious hatred for Biblical things that surfaces here like bubbles from something drowning underneath, the attempt to liken David to jihadists is yet another ill-informed dart throw at getting people to blame the Almighty Sovereign for the acts of a sinful humanity. Throwing a life preserver at someone drowning requires the person in trouble to grab and hang on for life; but the bubbles begin to dissipate as the truth is smothered, yet again.

Just in the same way as beheading cannot be allotted to Islam only as a dehumanizing means of death, neither can the Bible be cited as a primary source of commanding the beheading of anyone, no matter what the religion of science thinks. Those that are/were beheaded in the Revelation for allegiance to the Messiah, for example, were not killed for hating Christ, but because they claimed their love for him in obedience.

Next, Christianity takes the hit for cruelty, not because Christians who follow the true love of the Savior, but because there is a defection to the religion that does not seek n or serve the truth of the Gospel; indeed, the Adversary makes sport of those who do not adhere to the true discipleship, but in pride seek a path of destruction and try to take with them those they hate for hatred's sake, not desiring to follow in Christ's footsteps.

Finally, science and those who take it for some kind of religion that attempts to replace theology as a source of life have yet to realize that it is a means to discover the underlying truth, but science itself as a tool is not truth. The West, in its apostasy in the latter times is allowing the truth to escape and in doing so, is allowing another replacement theology to re-enact its original rebellion to the truth by trying to make the connection between the Gospel and all other comers leads to the destruction seen in the world today.

There is a reason that Yeshua HaMashiach is called Ben David; for that is who He is and the scurrilous attempt to defame the reality is only dangerous to the blasphemer; the true believer has lost nothing in the assurance that the Bible remains as truth to the redeemed, no matter how much mere humanity clings to the science that will eventually overtake the world lost in the shouting of jihad.
