“First Strike David”, Rocked Better Armed Goliath. A No-No?

So, David’s first strike with a rock which felled the evil, larger and better armed Goliath down without any further loss of life was foul play? That’s not what my Sunday School teacher said!
.
How about Joshua using that day’s Cruise Missiles to knock down Jericho’s Walls? Joshua 6:1-27. What would Nancy say?
.
Of course, a favorite of us old “traditionalists”, Genesis 19, “24Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.”
.
Genesis 38:9,10 is certainly descriptive and uncompromising, but not appropriate for this venue.
.
I have to wonder if this writer's righteous indignation has been as strong with abortion (murder), and especially with the new abortion right up until and even AFTER birth… I bet not. Liberals can justify the most awful things…
.
But, we who have children, and whose children have children and expect generations more, will continue to sling a rock into a tormentor’s head BEFORE he can strike our own. To do less is to apply the Lord Chamberlain peace plan which resulted in millions of deaths, even among “God’s chosen people”. I just can’t believe that was Blessed.
.
So, you keep writing Mr. Wolsey. You are a prime example of why the old UMC must be no more.
