Reformed Catechism Q & A
Questions from the Westminster and Heidelberg Catechisms are published here consecutively twice a year. New questions and answers appear every day:
Heidelberg Q. 110. What does God forbid in the eighth commandment?
A. God forbids not only outright theft and robbery but also such wicked schemes and devices as false weights and measures, deceptive merchandising, counterfeit money, and usury; we must not defraud our neighbor in any way, whether by force or by show of right. In addition God forbids all greed and all abuse or squandering of His gifts.
Heidelberg Q. 111. What does God require of you in this commandment?
A. I must promote my neighbor's good wherever I can and may, deal with him as I would like others to deal with me, and work faithfully so that I may be able to give to those in need.
