The story of Samson is a hard one to figure; not the best of role models for sure. Israel is controlled by the Philistines so they are not in God's favor. Samson is God's anointed judge for that time yet he almost seems to flaunt the fact that nothing bad can happen to him; he pushes and crosses the line often. Not even Israel can be too pleased with his example. Given the chance to better their situation with their captors, they capture and turn Samson in. He is still God's anointed, they are still on God's bad side. Samson is then filled with might from the Holy Spirit and avenges his captors convincingly. He eventually meets his flaunting demise, but, for Israel you don't mess with God's anointed no matter.
