Though I may have an opinion about whatever is good or evil, in the end, my judgments of tho
In my previous blog post from November 7 titled "Unmentionables," I stated I lacked understanding of the intended truth of Judges 19. My post prompted a converstation between my friend, my husband, and me. My friend gave me permission to share his insight on the matter. The story I referred to begins in chapter 19 then ends in chapter 21 of the book of Judges. The very last verse, Judges 21:25, sums it up and says, "In those days there was no king in Israel.
