    The reason For my Faith ^ | 5/21/22 | Chuck Ness
    As I was enjoying a picture commentary about the time king Saul attacked David, I was given an insight I had never previously considered. It's a connection that ties Saul's attack on David and our Lord Jesus being confronted by the religious leaders for plucking kernels of grain to eat on the Sabbath. Jesus used the moment in history when David was fleeing Saul to teach the religious leaders about the true nature of the Sabbath as meant by GOD. Yet, when you consider all the factors involved in the two moments in history, you will learn that there is...
  • Investigators Claim David Used Illegal ‘Ghost’ Sling In Lethal Assault Against Goliath

    BET SHEMESH, ISRAEL—Investigators working with the Israel Antiquities Authority have claimed David used an illegal "ghost" sling in his famous battle with Goliath. Experts allege the ghost sling would have been untraceable, which would account for why Goliath was caught off guard so easily. "Goliath, a man who stood about 7'10" by modern reckoning, would not have been defeated so easily if David had a legal sling registered with the proper authorities," said Dr. Phil Gath, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. "David probably used a 3D printer or something, maybe he just stole some leather and grabbed...

    The head of the country’s largest LGBTQ advocacy group defiantly tweeted Sunday that he will not resign over his role in ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s attempts at damage control amid a sexual harassment scandal. Alphonso David - who took over the Human Rights Campaign after serving as Cuomo’s chief counsel from 2015 to 2019 - claimed in his statement that he had been asked to step down even after an independent review found “no indication of wrongdoing.” “The board co-chairs have now asked me to consider resigning, not because of any wrongdoing, but because they feel the incident has been a...

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz blasted comedian Larry David after the Seinfeld co-creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star “screamed” and “yelled” at him in a grocery store over his ties with the Trump administration, calling him a “knee-jerk radical” who “takes his politics from Hollywood” and doesn’t read or think a lot. “While he was writing bad jokes, I was helping to bring about peace in the Middle East. What has he done?” Alan Dershowitz told Page Six. “Larry is a knee-jerk radical. He takes his politics from Hollywood. He doesn’t read a lot. He doesn’t think a lot.”

    I wish every American could attend a Trump rally. I attended a couple of them in Central Florida as a local media personality, but the Valdosta rally was the first time I got to hang around with with my people in the crowd. It was one of the most exciting and unique experiences you can imagine. Here’s what happened: On Sunday afternoon a friend of mine joined my wife and I on a road trip to Valdosta, Georgia, for the Victory Rally, featuring President Trump and Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Both senators are in runoff elections against...

    The location of Ziklag, a settlement mentioned several times in Jewish scriptures, has long been debated. To date, up to 15 sites have been suggested by archaeologists attempting to find the biblical town, such as Tel Halif near Kibbutz Lahav, Tel Shera in the western Negev, and Tel Sheva... According to the Book of Samuel, the city was destroyed by the Amalekites and the population was enslaved. After Saul was killed in battle with the Philistines, David left Ziklag and traveled to Hebron to be anointed king of Israel...

    Yesterday, the Survivors’ Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) revealed that Catholic composer and music director David Haas has been the subject of many credible accounts of “sexually predatory and abusive behavior.” According to SNAP, the Into Account network, which provides support to victims of abuse in Christian contexts, issued an open letter detailing some of the accusations against Haas: “The allegations we’ve received also contain a disturbing component of spiritual manipulation. Haas reportedly focuses attention on women with past histories of abuse, then uses the vulnerabilities created by trauma to create intimacy. Multiple women have reported to us...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/1/20 | Spencer Neale
    David Hogg, a Parkland shooting survivor-turned-gun control activist, compared law enforcement and officials in President Trump's administration to fascists, saying his grandfather fought with antifa against similar forces during World War II. Hogg, who has been highly critical of the Trump administration, suggested the president called his grandfather and other veterans "terrorists" when Trump said the United States would designate antifa a terrorist organization. "My grandpa was part of the Antifa forces in WWII sad Donald Trump has labeled him and his fellow vets as terrorists," Hogg tweeted. Trump has blamed the left-wing antifa movement for violent demonstrations across the...

    I am uniquely blessed to be Rush Limbaugh's brother in ways too numerous to count, and I am blessed to be in the special position of witnessing firsthand the outpouring of love and prayers from his, family, friends and fans. His wife, Kathryn, has been amazing and a rock throughout. I could fill a book with the well-wishes I've received. I sent Rush a link to my "mentions" column on Twitter so he could scroll through it and see for himself what he means to so many people. These tender expressions of goodwill are uplifting and spiritually affirming. God...
  • SATIRE After Senseless Murder Of Goliath, Philistines Call For Ban On Fully Automatic, High-Capacity Slings

    Babylon Bee ^ | 1/21/20
    VALLEY OF ELAH—After local homegrown terrorist David slew Goliath with a fully automatic, high-capacity sling, Philistine activists began calling for common-sense bans on the dangerous weapons of mass destruction. "Nobody needs a sling that holds five rocks just to go hunting or protect their sheep," said one Philistine woman with pink hair and several face piercings. "This tragedy could have been avoided if only David were forced to use one of the old bolt-action model slings." Investigators believe the shepherd boy, radicalized by religious texts, built up an arsenal of approximately five hollow-point, armor-piercing rocks, "a deadly stockpile." "Can you...

    Claremont Review of Books ^ | November 22, 2019 | Michael Anton
    People capable of feeling shame would not have immediately followed up the Russiagate hoax fiasco with another transparently phony—and in “substance” nearly identical—attempt to remove President Trump from office, overturn the 2016 election, and shower deplorable-Americans with contempt and hatred. But our ruling elites have no shame. That is not to say, however, that they are entirely cynical. The means by which they’ve so far tried to crush the Trump presidency may be nasty and illegitimate, but our overlords are 100% convinced of the righteousness of their cause, and of themselves. Hence they do not even need recourse to the...

    And when king David came to Bahurim, behold, thence came out a man of the family of the house of Saul, whose name was Shimei, the son of Gera: he came forth, and cursed still as he came. And he cast stones at David, and at all the servants of king David: and all the people and all the mighty men were on his right hand and on his left. And thus said Shimei when he cursed, Come out, come out, thou bloody man, and thou man of Belial: The Lord hath returned upon thee all the blood of the...

    Psalms 64 For the music director, a psalm of David. Listen to me, O God, as I offer my lament! Protect my life from the enemy’s terrifying attacks. 2 Hide me from the plots of evil men, from the crowd of evildoers. 3 They sharpen their tongues like swords; they aim their arrows, a slanderous charge, 4 in order to shoot down the innocent in secluded places. They shoot at him suddenly and are unafraid of retaliation. 5 They encourage one another to carry out their evil deed. They plan how to hide snares, and boast, “Who will see them?”...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | June 29, 2019 | Philip Cottraux
    Many are the Afflictions of the Righteous By Philip Cottraux After being anointed king, David would spend the next ten years on the run from Saul. He and his band of loyal soldiers lived in the wilderness like fugitives, sleeping in caves, never knowing where their next meal was coming from, and on constant watch for Saul’s pursuing army. In a previous blog I wrote about David arriving at the tabernacle hungry and asking the high priest, Ahimelech, for food. A table with bread was located in front of the veil that concealed the holiest of holies. But this show...
  • New reading of Mesha Stele could have far-reaching consequences for biblical history

    Photography of Mesha Stele. Credit: Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository =============================================================== The biblical King Balak may have been a historical figure, according to a new reading of the Mesha Stele, an inscribed stone dating from the second half of the 9th century BCE. A name in Line 31 of the stele, previously thought to read 'House of David', could instead read 'Balak', a king of Moab mentioned in the biblical story of Balaam (Numbers 22-24), say archaeologist Prof. Israel Finkelstein and historians and biblical scholars Prof. Nadav Na'aman and Prof. Thomas Römer, in an article published in Tel Aviv:...

    More than 3,000 years have passed since this dramatized event, but for the archaeologists of the Lautenschläger Azekah Expedition, it looks as if it had happened only yester-day. Slowly and carefully -- it took four full seasons -- we uncovered a building filled with more than 200 complete ceramic vessels, 45 stone tools, exceptional metal objects, 108 beads, five scarabs, eight034 amulets, and the remains of four people. This collapsed building is located on the top of Tel Azekah. The name of Azekah (or 'Azeqah) is known to most readers as the location of the famous battle between David and...
