Thread Name: Bible School songs
Subject: RE: Bible School songs
No one has mentioned "Only a Boy Named David" about him killing Goliath. My folks had red 45 with the song when we were little (I was born in 1954). Just saw part of a History Channel thing where it appeared that King David would have been up in the Haigh for war crimes and crimes against humanity. I'm thinking that's what every conquering force would have been doing at the time. Can't judge the past be present standards. Sort of lost my faith after the Luther League didn't want me to finger pick some bad Christian re-writes of folks songs (Blowing in the wind=The Answer my Friend is living in all men). No one seems to have missed me.
