Weekly Hymn:       Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus

 

 

Heidelberg Catechism–

      • Q104 What does God require in the fifth commandment? /

Answer: That I show all honour, love, and faithfulness to my father and mother and to all those in authority over me, submit myself with due obedience to their good instruction and discipline, and also have patience with their weaknesses and shortcomings, since it is God’s will to govern us by their hand.

 

      • Q105 What does God require in the sixth commandment? /

Answer: I am not to dishonour, hate, injure, or kill my neighbor by thoughts, words, or gestures, and much less by deeds, whether personally or through another; rather, I am to put away all desire of revenge. Moreover, I am not to harm or recklessly endanger myself. Therefore, also, the government bears the sword to prevent murder.

 

      • Q106 But does this commandment speak only of killing? /

Answer: By forbidding murder God teaches us that he hates the root of murder, such as envy, hatred, anger, and desire of revenge, and that he regards all these as murder.
