Throughout the years (at Calvary Temple) there have been teachings about honoring your parents. However, the practice at Calvary has been to shun your parents if they leave or disagree with CT. If you are to honor your parents, why are you instructed to curse them? It is because of the subtle twisting of the 5th commandment of God done by Star Scott.

According to your pastor, the 5th commandment is changed from this:  

"Honor your father and mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.  Exodus 20:12."

to this:

Honor your father and mother in the Lord, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you. 

Here it is in Star Scott's own words - (the creation of a new "scripture"):

"Did you know the one (commandment) that Paul speaks about in the epistles in the New Testament says that you're to honor your father and mother in the Lord, and it's the first commandment with promise" (I am that I am pt 4 November 2008).  

Do you see the problem? He has misquoted and changed the meaning of Exodus 20:12 by combining it with Ephesians 6:1.  

Honor your father and mother (Ex 20:12)  plus
Obey your parents in the Lord for this is right.   (Eph 6:1)

Now becomes:  Honor your father and mother in the Lord.  

However, the 5th commandment is not speaking to the actions of the father or mother, it is speaking to the actions of the son or daughter.  

We are to honor our parents. Period. Please read and understand the following verses. God speaks directly to children dishonoring their parents - as you are doing. 

Matthew 15: 3- 9 Why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? For God said, "Honor your father and mother" and "Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death". But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is 'devoted to God,' they are not to 'honor their father or mother' with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: These people honor me with their lips but their hearts are from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.

Ezekiel 21:17  He that curses father or mother, let him die the death.

Ephesians 6:1 speaks of obeying your parents in the Lord and Ephesians 6:2 speaks of honoring your parents - two different commands to children

Honoring your parents is to be done whether or not they are "in the Lord". Therefore, "in the Lord" is not part of Ephesians 6:2 or Exodus 20:12. 

But obeying them is limited if their instruction is not consistent with scripture (or, in the Lord) as stated in Ephesians 6:1. 

You have been taught to dishonor your parents and to disobey a clear biblical commandment.

Joey Simoneau, Sarah Foster, Jon Fitch, Sarah Kain, Joshua Fitch, Christina Konczal, and Wendy Perozich:

...if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  Revelation 22:19
