against the LORD’s anointed
1 Samuel 26:9
26:9 against the LORD’s anointed. This warning of David’s (in context applying specifically only to the potential slaying of Saul) has often been misused to justify letting pastors and teachers continue teaching false doctrine or practicing immorality. However, believers should not continue under the instruction of such teachers (II John 9-11; II Timothy 2:16-18; 3:5; etc.).
