    John Carver Show - David and Goliath (Malcolm Gladwell)

    in Self Help

    The biblical story of David and Goliath is probably the most well-known underdog story in the world.


    Goliath is a giant warrior who battles a much-smaller shepherd boy, David. David shoots him with a stone and a sling right between the eyes, Goliath topples over, and David kills him.


    David and Goliath is "a metaphor for improbable victories," Gladwell explained during a Ted Talk in September. "Why do we call David an underdog? Well, we call him an underdog because he's a kid, a little kid, and Goliath is this big, strong giant. We also call him an underdog because Goliath is an experienced warrior, and David is just a shepherd. But most importantly, we call him an underdog because Goliath is outfitted with all of this modern weaponry, this glittering coat of armor and a sword and a javelin and a spear, and all David has is this sling."


    The first mistake history has made when retelling the tale of David and Goliath is to assume that David was a helpless boy who only had a wimpy slingshot to protect himself, Gladwell said.


    That's because there were three types of warriors in ancient times: people who fought with slings and archery (David), foot soldiers who were good at up-close combat with swords (Goliath), and people on horseback.


    Goliath was a foot soldier; David was a slinger. When put this way, and you note that Goliath and David were fighting from somewhat of a distance, it makes David's weapon choice seem smart. He's good at attacking with accuracy from afar.


    It also makes you understand why Goliath was in trouble the moment David whipped out his sling. If David never got close to him, how could he attack and defeat him?


    "Goliath is a sitting duck. He doesn't have a chance," Gladwell concludes.

    Holy Nation Church& Rev.Russell Moore: Who You calling A Dog? David&Goliath

    in Religion

    Davids opinion of Goliath is very different from King Sauls. David has Faith in God he believes God is stronger and bigger than the giant he's facing. David's battle plan consist of his staff, sling shot,five stones and the name of the God he serves. In the name of his God david see's Goliath as a creature. Goliath is like the Lion and the Bear David defeated in the past. Goliath feels disrepected by Davids lack of fear He's mad and ready to cut david to pieces. Can David put a collar around the Giant mans neck, listen in Sunday Morning as David tackles the real Atomic dog!

    Wearing the Armor of God 


                Israel sets the example for the faithful; within the nation were two groups, those who believed theLord and those who did not.  Because of the unbelief of the majority, the nation was forced to wander in the dusty and rocky Sinai desert for 40-years.  We (the saved), grafted into the covenant of Israel, should take notice, why did Israel fail to enter the land?  Was it because God was unfaithful? No, it was because the people would not trust Him.  Why did Israel tremble in fear at Goliath, and David boldly want to fight? In both cases, the faithful trusted the Lord, Joshua and Caleb saw God open the Red Sea, they saw Him in the cloud and fire, they knew their God.  David too, knew his God; He was more then capable of giving David victory (I Samuel 17). Before the battle took place in the field, it was in the mind.  The minds of the 10-spies were controlled by fear.  The army of Israel before the Philistine Goliath, a giant, was defeated in the mind, before on arrow flew. The battle began in the mind, just as it does for us. The armor of God gives us the ability to be victors in the battle of the mind.   Putting on the full armor of God, allows us to stand against the schemes of Satan, whose goal is to pin the faithful to the ground.   Here we stand, God’s warriors about to enter battle, how are we to wage war?  First, we must remember Paul’s instructions, we need to put on the full armor God, having done that, we need to make the conscious decision to stand.  We need to choose to stand, as opposed to being taken down by our opponent Satan.

    HolyNationChurch&Rev.Russell Moore: David &Goliath..Be strong in the Lord

    in Religion

    David had already beaten the giant named Goliath long before the battle began. God had trained David to have faith in the strength of the Lord. God gave David a Lion and a Bear to battle and demonstrate God's supernatual power over the beast of the field. When David met Goliath on the battlefield David treated him as a beast of the field. David revused to put on King Sauls battle gear. He did'nt need a shield to beat a Dog. Join me Wednesday night as we look at Goliath through Gods eyes and kill a Giant.

    Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May fifth, commemorating the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

It helped establish a much-needed sense of national unity and patriotism.

    New York Times Best Selling Author Rabbi David Wolpe

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Rabbi David Wolpe.


    David Wolpe, author of David: The Divided Heart (Yale University Press), investigates one of the most perplexing, powerful and enigmatic figures in the Bible. Wolpe, who has been deemed by Newsweek as one of “the most influential rabbi’s in America” takes a fresh look at the man, the myth and the legend.  The myth of David slaying Goliath is well-known; Goliath of Gath challenges any man to come and fight him. David, the young and sheepish son of Jesse, shoots Goliath with his slingshot and ultimately decapitates him with a sword.  David, the underdog wins the battle, transforming himself into a hero.


     


    Wolpe further examines David’s actions and his character, painting a different portrait of David.
