S3 Episode 8: Honouring Authorities (5th Commandment)

Welcome to Season 3 of Down Under Theology, a podcast equipping and encouraging Australian Christians to get down and under the theology impacting the life and mission of the church.

In Episode 8, we discuss the 5th commandment to honour our father and mother. How does this relate to the ensuing promise of long life in the land? What's the relationship between honouring our parents and honouring other authorities like our governments, church leaders, work bosses, etc.? What does this command reveal about God? How do we live it out today?
