What a strange tale! I can't help but feel a bit sorry for the guy. He did disobey the LORD, but if you read the full chapter you find out that he was tricked by the old prophet. I guess you've got to be careful with these things!


i know poor him


maybe before he got tricked he did a very terrible thing to lord maybe


This story proves you need to trust the words of The Lord over those of man. The adversary has been twisting the Word of God since the beginning! If God's Word tells you something clearly, don't trust what any one says, especially if they claim to be interpreting Gods Word for you.


i know i feel so sorry for the guy.....


A reminder...... do whatever God says and beware of those who lie.


GOD is is flesh.Always trust GOD HE is perfect HE knows what HE is doing and saying.Man is imperfect.Man can and will meds up.
