This is part 2 of a two-part episode on the fifth commandment: “Honor your father and your mother that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God gives you.” In Heidelberg Catechism 104 we interpret this commandment to require “that I show all honor, love and faithfulness to my father and mother, and to all in authority over me; submit myself with due obedience to all their good instruction and correction, and also bear patiently with their infirmities, since it is God’s will to govern us by their hand.” In this episode we consider the some broader implications of the fifth commandment, our work life, our civil life, and our relations to the authority of the visible, institutional church. We’ll also spend some time thinking about the Apostle Peter’s exhortation to imitate Christ.
