Default David and Goliath? - 05-01-2008, 06:43 AM

Even though my name is in pink, I do know enough of the Bible to know that (King) David had a fight with Goliath, and defeated him. Is that maybe the reason, that there are a fair amount of kids that are named David, but none (or at least very few) named Goliath? Because, most people have names of people from the Bible i.e Mark, Matthew, John, Peter, Ruth, etc. . But Goliath is mentioned in the Bible as well, albeit not in a good way. Is it just that because the Bible portrayed Goliath as a nere-do-weller, that many parents do not choose to name their child that?

I really don't get that either though, I know some people named Cain, and Cain killed Abel in the Bible. So why does he have more "rep", so to speak, with names, than Goliath?

Some are of the opinion that Goliath is a suitable name for a dog. Case in point--Davey and Goliath. I personally protested* this show when it aired during the sixties and seventies. It was produced by Lutherans, and it is a fact that Lutherans worship Satan. Additionally, I was outraged by the talking dog, which further proved the Satanic nature of the show.



I also thought the boy's trousers were too tight.




And the homosexual tension between Davey and his Negro friend, Jonathan Reed, was palpable.


*Not like a hippie. I didn't smoke "grass" and sing "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "If I Had a Hammer." Rather, I wrote angry letters to my congressman demanding the show be removed from the airwaves and that its creators be publicly executed. I also stood on street corners yelling at passers-by about the evils of the show. If a passerby was immodestly dressed, I yelled about that, too.

Goliath was an enemy of God and freedom. Calling your kid Goliath would be about as inappropriate as as calling him Mohammed.

Because goths hate Jesus, they often think that Cain would be a good name for a kid. This also explains why goths shouldn't be allowed to breed.


O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it--for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.


God being truth, justice, goodness, beauty, power, and life, man is falsehood, iniquity, evil, ugliness, impotence, and death. God being master, man is the slave. Incapable of finding justice, truth, and eternal life by his own effort, he can attain them only through a divine revelation... he who desires to worship God must harbor no childish illusions about the matter, but bravely renounce his liberty and humanity.

I remember that show.
I hated it.
Davey and Jonathan seemed queer to me. Like any second they were going to reenact a late-career John Holmes movie. The very idea of an interracial friendship is blatantly anti Christian.
II Cor. 6:14--Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

If you knew anything about Christianity, you would know that Goliath was part-demon. He was of Nephilim seed. The offspring of Devil's.

It would be like calling your son 'Satan' or 'Beelzebub'. How many people do you know called 'Lucifer'?

But I mean like everyone, not just Christians. Wouldn't there be a possibility that a satanist would name his/her son/daughter Goliath or Beelzebub? That was my initial question; has Christianity helped change general society enough so that you'd be labeled a "freak" or "hellspawn", even by non-Christians, including satanists, by naming your child Belphegor, Beelzebub, etc.?

Well Satanists name their kids all kind of stupid things.
Heres a Satanist whose parents named him Marshall of all things.
He's in Hell now.

What's the reason to mention Goths?? It doesn't even correlate with each other.

Amen. We don't want goths raising any more Cain than they do already.
