BIBLICAL CRITIQUE: [CHARACTER]2Biblical Critique: DavidIt is important to read the Bible and Scripture in order to gain a profound understanding of struggles and conflicts that characters have faced as well as how they are able to work with God’s lead in order to overcome these issues. In the story of David, readers are able to relate to him because he makes several mistakes and is influenced by temptation. That leads him to make immoral choices and he then tries to cover them up creating more conflicting situations in the process. Simply, David falls prey to sin. In 2 Samuel 11, David makes the worst decision of all and sentences a man to death because of his temptation regarding the man’s wife whom he has committed adultery with. The conflicts David faced can still speak to circumstances happening intoday’s world making it a very relatable reference source for some struggling with the same conflicts. The purpose of this paper is for believers and followers of God to realize that temptation will always present itself, but one must avoid it at all costs or face more conflicts and continue to displease God in the process.
