Don’t Be Like Absalom sermon video. The Bible says, Absalom stole the hearts of people. He didn’t earn their hearts or win their hearts. He stole their hearts. He began projecting leadership as incompetent. He was saying, ‘The king is not doing his job. Here is what he ought to be doing.’ DON’T BE LIKE ABSALOM. He openly, negatively criticized God given authority. It was not the king or authority who was not doing their job. It was he had hidden agendas, hidden bitterness, and hidden hatred against all authority. His sister had been raped.

Most pastors preach about these characters when something bad is going on in their church and they are trying to correct a bad situation. That is not what I am doing. My purpose is to show us traits of these negative characters are in all of us. You will see how God dealt extremely harshly with them. My goal is to help us avoid their end. Today I want to talk about DON’T BE LIKE ABSALOM.

Absalom was the third son of King David by David’s third wife (2Sa 3:3).
