Pagan Thinking In A Christian Family (2 Samuel 13:1-18)

Phillip Kayser, PhD, June 16, 2013
Part of the Life of David series, preached at a Sermon service

This rather embarrassing text describing an act of rape and incest should not be ignored. It is immensely valuable in illustrating the many ways that Christian homes are unwittingly influenced by pagan thinking. But it is also a passage that negatively teaches us how to minister to those who are abused, and how to help those given over to lust to conquer their problem. Rape, incest, and other sexual perversions are on the increase in America, and Christian homes can prevent such things from happening within their walls if they will disciple their children on these fundamental principles.
