40  And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.

41  And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him.

42  And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

43  And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

44  And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.

45  Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

46  This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

47  And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.

48  And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

49  And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

50  So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. 1 Samuel 17:40-50

    Christ is the excellent and definitive Hero of the Christian faith.
    Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the LORD of Life.
    Announced by the Holy Scriptures, The LORD came from Heaven, generated in a woman by the Spirit of God.
    Preached His teachings and fulfilled the Word of God; as was said about Him, from the beginning, and described in the Holy Bible.
    The LORD came to save the souls of people separated from God and fallen into this world.
    Founded His Church, and by Her, offered Himself as an Eternal Sacrifice; to restore judgment in mind of people and justice to your lives, and, as Salvation, your souls for the Kingdom of God and Light.
    Resurrected, returned to Heaven, from where Reigns, as God the Father entrusted to Him.
    And all those who by faith, believe, accept and invoke Him, in Spirit and Truth, will be called to His Way, His Truth and His Life; with the Hope of attaining His Kingdom and the Eternal Life.
