Who is the man, I think of the bible, but he gained his power from his hair? And one day he was tricked into cutting it by a woman.

Samson.....the story can be found in Judges chapter 16.

Samson's life is one of contradiction. First, he was to be "a Nazirite, set apart to God from birth" (Judges 13:5), yet he continually broke his vow. The Spirit of God came upon him many times, giving him great strength to fight the Philistines, the oppressors of the Israelites. At the same time, however, Samson was a womanizer and a vengeful man, full of sin. Samson's life illustrates that giving in to temptation leads to sin, that God will use even a sinful man to enact His will, and that God will not
let us escape the consequences of our sin.

Yes as the answers above state, Samson, it is an identical story to the Greek/Roman story of Hercules,

Right! And you and I are identical since we both said the answer was "Samson" and we both are on ask (what are the odds of that!) and we both answer lots of "religion" questions and we both make a living in the trades and we both have wives and children....oh and most striking perhaps is that we both answered the question in 19 words!! Lol
He he he. Have a good weekend. Oh, wow it's half over! I worked today to finish a commercial job...I'm beat.

LOL wow what a coincidence eh? but I don't see the superhuman part of us though. anyhow I spent the day giving money to the casino, but had a nice time,. you have a good remainder of the week end.

P.S. perhaps in future they'll make us into legendary figures :P

Lol, well I was just humorously pointing out that if Sampson and Hercules were "identical" then by the same reasoning you and I are identical...but alas we aren't. The fact that we are both not superhuman makes us even more identical! Lol
Alright, well take care and next time send ME the cash instead of the wealthy casinos! Ha ha

Samson. He didn't gain power from his hair. God had given him the power. he was taken by the Philistines after his hair was cut. Even though it grew he had no power.. he called upon God asking to give him strength one more time. I don't believe God will use a sinful man to do his will. Will he send a pedophile to teach a children's ministry? Or a profane man to minister to a church? There was a covenant on Samson when his mother conceived. The ultimatum was that no razor should touch his head. When Samson's hair was cut the Bible says that he did not know that the spirit of God had left him. To contrast it to present time.. . A lot of times Christians give in to things that God said we must set ourselves a part from.. . The more we do it we become desensitised to the holy spirit and we don't see that what we are doing is wrong.
