David, Amnon & Absalom (2 Samuel 13:1-38, Ephesians 4:26-27, Genesis 4:6-7, Matthew 5:21-22, James 4:17)

Gareth Morris, 11th August 2019
Part of the 2 Samuel series, preached at a IBCP's Service service

What happens when a man loses control over his sexual desires? When temptation comes together with shrewd advice, it can lead to rape. And that may lead to revenge from the other side. This example brings fresh memories reported by many raped women from the MeToo# movement. How shall men treat women? What position had women at the time of David versus these days? Has David's exploitation of Batsheba been repeated with Amnon and Tamar - was this why he was inactive in his response and did not take action after the rape of Tamar was reported?

Tags: anger, brother, lust, metoo, murder, rape, revenge, sister
