Read the Bible For Yourself

Many who read their Bible know about the faith in God that young shepherd boy David had when he faced the Philistine giant named Goliath and killed him. If you are not acquainted with the details, read 1 Samuel 17 for a blessing. As the years passed by and David became king and continued to engage in battle, he faced another Philistine giant, Ishbi-Benob, but this time it was different:

Once again there was a battle between the Philistines and Israel. David went down with his men to fight against the Philistines, and he became exhausted. And Ishbi-Benob, one of the descendants of Rapha, whose bronze spearhead weighed three hundred shekels and who was armed with a new sword, said he would kill David. But Abishai son of Zeruiah came to David’s rescue; he struck the Philistine down and killed him. Then David’s men swore to him, saying, “Never again will you go out with us to battle, so that the lamp of Israel will not be extinguished.” (2 Sam 21:15-17)

Unless you read the entire Bible for yourself, you may never learn the whole truth, especially about the most important subject of all—salvation. Are you sure you know what it says?
