Q.70: What is forbidden in the fifth commandment?

A. The fifth commandment forbids the neglect of, or doing anything against the honor and duty which belongs to everyone in their several places and relations.

For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ “But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God” — ‘then he need not honor his father or mother.’ Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.

Matthew 15:4-6
