Becoming True Witnesses

Text: Exodus 20:16, Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 43, Q&A 112

Series: The Ten Commandments

Have you ever noticed, the ninth command is more than “thou shalt not lie”? In fact, it specifically deals with the damage that false witness does to our neighbors. Tonight, we consider the connection between honesty and love, and God’s will that we bear his truthful image.


Respecting the Lord of Life

Text:Exodus 20:13

 Heidelberg Catechism Lord’s Day 40, Q&A 105

Series: The Ten Commandments

The sixth command, “you shall not murder,” can feel remote to people who have never contemplated killing another human being. The Word, however, not only proscribes acts of murder, but common root-sins from which they grow. As well, God wills that we positively respect, defend, and promote human life. Tonight we'll consider how all of this is based on God's love and lordship over life.
