Meet Mean King Manasseh
Clayton D Steep  

Too many continue to feel guilty for wrong things done in the past. God recorded an example to help us understand the extent of His forgiveness. One of the most evil kings who ever lived ruled over the ancient kingdom of Judah. His name was Manasseh. This wicked king led his nation down the wrong paths. He caused his people to do shameful and terrible things. In addition, the Bible tells us that he "shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another" (II Kings 21:16). He massacred innocent civilians.
