II Samuel 11:1-4
Friends, if you have your Bibles, I want you to turn
with me now to Second Samuel, chapter 11, and I want
to speak to you on the subject, IMMODEST WOMEN.
This is a Bible message, friends. I am not just
talking. We are living in a day of immodesty, as you
well know, and I want to sound out the WARNING of
God's Word about IMMODESTY.
In Second Samuel, chapter 11, verses 1 through 4, we
have the record that is commonly called "David's Great
Sin." In fact, I have before me a Scofield Reference

brides that go to the altar in America are not virgins
when they go. People are living in shame. A research
in the University of Southern California reveals that
50% of the illegitimate children born in America are
born of high school girls. These are sordid facts that
show us the terrible days in which we are living, and
we need a WARNING today. I pray that God will speak
directly to our hearts.
WHO IS TO BLAME, for the sin that David committed? Is
David to blame? Or is Bathsheba to blame? Or are both
of them to blame? Whose is the major ...
