While at SWBTS, I had an Old Testament Professor express his view that it was rape. His only explanation was it implied as "rape" because of David's power as King.

It made me uncomfortable, not because " a rape" was there in the text, but because the Professor implied it was there. Every professor I had at SWBTS, including this one, always warned us against eisegeting a text.
Implying something was there that was not there and then preaching it.

I fear social justice is taking precedent as a hermeneutics tool.
