https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Samuel+11 I was listening to a message today, while riding my recumbent bike, and the preacher laid full blame for this sin on David's doorstep! That left me to wonder ... was he truly, the person God held accountable, or did Bathsheba have some part of the blame to shoulder? It is my opinion that David was, in fact, fully at fault, because he knew God and the laws. Since he was God's chosen King, I feel he should have known better, and that his sin with her led to other sins, in order to keep the sinful act under wraps! I can say this, because Bathsheba was a gentile, and not a child of Jehovah, chosen to lead a nation! Sure she was unfaithful and committed adultery, but because David was a Jew, and the Knig of Israel, in the eyes of God, David led her into an act of sin that the 10 commandments strictly prohibited, and he should have known better. Plus, she was a citizen of the Kingdom, and he was the king. I believe she felt obligated to oblige his invitation and desires for her! Even if she knew it was against her marriage vows, this may have come down to a matter of mental force, on David's behalf? Well, that is my opinion; and I truly look forward to your views on this subject.
