SERIES: Homeland Security
MESSAGE: Fractured Families-Broken Lives
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: 2 Samuel 13-18

The Department of Homeland Security was established after the attacks of September 11, 2001. It was, in part, a response to terrorism. But what about our response to the terrorism taking place to our own homes? Our society is hardly family-friendly. There are powerful forces operating to undermine the moral underpinnings of the family unit. Let's discover what happened to Israel's First Family. Lets review the story of David and Absalom that sadly repeats itself today.

I. A Ruptured Home (2 Samuel 13)

A. Chaotic Relationships (Vss1-2, 11-14)

B. Passive Parenting (Vs 7, 21)

II. A Rebel Son

A. Violence (13: 28-29)

B. Subversion (15: 1-6)

III. A Remorseful Dad

A. Proximity without Intimacy (14:21-24, 28-29)

B. Dissension without Resolution (18:33)
