Sunday: Lon Solomon on the Fifth Commandment Honoring Your Father and Mother

In his ongoing study of the life of Moses in the Old Testament, Lon Solomon of McLean Bible Church discusses the Fifth Commandment, the first of the "horizontal commandments," or the those dealing with our fellowmen.

What does it means to us as children? As adults?

How do we learn to submit to authority, first to parents' authority and then God's?

What if our parents aren't Christians or are bad parents?

What if parents ask us to do something horrible, or something we know is just plain wrong?

And how long do we submit to their authority as our Biblical obligation ceases as parents and what happens next?

Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God commanded you, so that your days may be long and that it may go well with you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

Hear how Mickey Mantle loved his parents, even before he came to Christ in the last days of his life.

A wonderful sermon which clarifies this important Commandment.
