Why did God kill David’s son? Is not every man culpable for his own sin?

Question was asked: “Why did God kill David’s son for David’s sin, is not every man culpable for his own sin?”

Christian response,

God took David’s son because to whom much is given, much is expected and God will not be mocked, whatever a man sows this he shall also reap (Galatians 6:7-10) as did the entire World save eight during the Flood. God is Sovereign…life is His to give and take (Job 1:21). David is the King…much was given, much was expected…David sowed and reaped and God punished David in the flesh which led to godly repentance and ultimately salvation. David’s child was secure in the Lord and ushered into the presence of God and David knew this (2 Samuel 12). God’s ways are not our ways (Isaiah 55:8-9)…when we understand this and when we believe this with sincerity…we allow God to be God and get out of the way.
