Nixon had Watergate, Clinton had Monica Lewinsky and David had his Bathsheba-gate. All of these men entered "The Spin Zone". If you were to ask the average person, "What do you remember most about King David?" Children would quickly answer, "Goliath." Adults would quickly answer, "Bathsheba." These were the two greatest moments in the life and rein of King David. Goliath reminds us of David's greatest victory; Bathsheba reminds us of David's greatest defeat.
