2Pe 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

Jud 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Rev 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Yeah, neither were Christians, and both were lost. Saul lost the Holy Spirit for being a wicked and evil king and Balaam was a baal worshipper and a fool. I wouldn't say either is a good example for a Christian, or anybody, unless you want to wind up in hell. The fact that they could admit that they sinned is good, but they were obviously lacking in the parts that really matter.
