The 8th Commandment
September 5, 2021 • Brandon Queen • Exodus 20:15

The 5th Commandment
August 8, 2021 • Bryan Baise • Exodus 20:12
The fifth commandment to honor your father and mother is coupled with a promise to live long in the land. The promise, like the commandments, is intended to signify what a life well-lived will produce. Honoring the elders and those in authority is an expression of gratitude to God and trust in his provision. A church and society that rejects their elders is a sign of disobedience, not enlightenment.
