Seven Gaping Holes in Eli's Parenting (1 Samuel 2:12-36)

Phillip Kayser, PhD, August 4, 2013
Part of the Individual Sermon series, preached at a Sermon service

Why is it that so many Christian families have messed up children who are as bad as Eli and Phinehas? Is there anything that can be done to prevent this tragedy? Without excusing the behavior of the children, this sermon isolates seven significant ways that Eli contributed to the evil conduct of his children. It is a call to fathers to put off the Eli-isms that are rampant in modern Christian families.
