‘Weird’ Bible verse from Vintage Faith Church

If all Biblical scripture is “God breathed,” argues Pastor Dan Kimball of Vintage Faith Church, we can’t ignore any of them. Can we? Not even Samuel 18:27:

“David took his men with him and went out and killed two hundred Philistines and brought back their foreskins. They counted out the full number to the king so that David might become the king’s son-in-law. Then Saul gave him his daughter Michal in marriage

Startling to some of us. Kimball covers the issues in reverent detail.

But if your personal code, whatever it may be, isn’t about how you relate to the rest of your kind and the least among them, and to the world we all share, then it’s about nothing I can reconcile with any scripture I’ve read.

Read it all [Here].

What is your story of Christmas faith silently and with sacrifice adhered to in an ordinary thing?
