I’ve been preaching out of Judges lately, and this is the kinda stuff that makes me think our desire to be relevant merely confirms the suspicion that Christians are a bunch of wackos! So ironic is the willingness of Israel to be subjugated by Philistia (Israel was quite happy to be dominated) and contemporary, evangelical Christianity’s need to “be relevant.”
This sooooo misses Judges. Samson wasn’t a super-hero — he was a wreck! I don’t think Samson’s imprisonment was a good hair day — or an any hair day for that matter. Let alone, do I believe he looked either so Caucasian nor so, er, clean.
