The Wickedness of Dishonoring Parents

This second message on the Fifth Commandment is based upon Deuteronomy 27:16, where God places His divine curse upon children who set light by their parents.  Modern Americans have been taught to think that disobedience and disrespect toward parents is a trivial matter; in God’s eyes, however, it is a damnable sin, worthy of His eternal curse.  The only hope for sinners is in a Saviour Who lived in perfect obedience toward His own parents, and died as a substitute in our place.  This message, then, examines several passages concerning the duties owed by children to parents, and ends with an exhortation to look in faith to the only perfect Child and Man that ever lived.
