David's sins
The Bible states that God struck Bathsheba's child with it being sick for a week before dying. It seems rather harsh on the child when the adulterers were allowed to live, despite by the law they were supposed to be stoned.
Then there are the innocent 70,000 of David's subjects killed merely because God caused David to have a census of his army. It seems that even God was sickened by that slaughter He had ordered and eventually stopped it. I know that the later version in Chronicles says Satan stirred up David but Samuel is explicit in saying God did it.

Are these fair actions?
