What would it take to make you stop loving them?

How To Get Away With Murder (King David) [iBelieveBible]

David's story of murder is a dark story, but it provides hope for all kinds of sinners who may fear that they have gone "too far." God has seen the very worst of humankind, and he has been seeing it for thousands of years. He is not too frail or sensitive to deal with our real issues, and he is not so cruel as to withhold the forgiveness that he sacrificed his own life for in the person of Jesus.
