The adventurous and gifted Samsonùwhose story is told in four chapters of the book of Judgesùnever had the intention of fighting against God. He was just a fun-loving guy looking for a good time. Like so many strong men today, he didnÆt think his sin was any big deal. But itÆs clear as you read his story that the older he got, the more sin held him in its grip.
The Samson Syndrome is a set of twelve tendencies or challenges that strong men will always face. Obstacles like lust, ignoring good advice, big egos, fears of authentic intimacy, losing sight of the big picture, and others, have the ability to be any manÆs undoing. AtteberryÆs mission is to remind men of the joy of living within GodÆs boundaries, because he believes thereÆs a little Samson in all of us. With GodÆs help weÆre capable of such great things. But weÆre never more than one bad choice away from humiliation. However, it doesnÆt have to be that way if you want to fulfill your God-given potential.
