Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Is Samson a Hero or Villain in the Bible?

host Adriel Sanchez aired September 14, 2022

Episode 1054 Show Notes 

From the Show

There is a warning here about the deceptive nature of sin and the consequences of sin. Samson’s death was tragic, he was blinded and mocked and even still, God used him to bring judgment against the enemies of the Lord. This doesn’t justify Samson’s actions, but there is a comfort seeing God’s hand in Samson’s life.
