Do you read the Bible in the bath?
Did David like bubblebath?
Do you like little animals in your bathroom?
This could be for you….

There seems to be a number of great “heroes” of the Christian faith that we can look up to in the Bible. Many upstanding people of faith who we can look to as examples as we seek to live out our own faith in the worlds we live in.
For this months Digidisciple post we’re going to look at what King David can teach us about sinning.
David probably should have been at the battle… Instead he chose to be somewhere much nicer.
Which is obviously a silly choice to make. I obviously never skived off lectures at uni to go to the pub instead…
Enjoy the view of the people below you.
Theologians the world over may have discussed if David’s actions within 2 Samuel 11:12-15, was the reason why the phrase “two faced” was invented.

When all else fails.
Cover it up.
If the X Files taught us anything, its that a simple cover up stays simple… and never gets complicated…
We never do anything wrong anyway do we?
We at The Church Sofa, can not pass the book of 1 Samuel, without taking some time to look at Chapter 17. The home of one of this epic battles of The Old Testament. The original David v Goliath battle itself. This battle story has led to the use of “David vs Goliath” to describe almost any story were someone has to face overwhelming odds, and probably has no chance of winning.
We’re going to take a look at how Goliath has been represented over the years.
There are the traditional paintings that have been created over the centuries.
We have the computer generated characters within games.
There are also Disney style monster Goliaths.
Goliath can also look like the football match your team have no chance of winning in. (Exeter City managed a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford)
Goliath seems to symbolise the unbeatable monster.
The thing is:
That unbeatable monster, can just be waking up tomorrow morning.
