Discussion Questions: Baptist Catechism 78-80

  1. What is the eighth commandment?
  2. What does it mean to steal? 
  3. How is our daily provision and wealth to be obtained?
  4. Ephesians 4:28 says, “Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need” (Ephesians 4:28, ESV). Can you think of certain kinds of “work” that would not qualify as “honest work”? Why must the Christian avoid this kind of work?
  5. Why does our catechism say that the command, “Thou shalt not steal”, requires  “the lawful procuring and furthering the wealth and outward estate of ourselves and others”? How do we jump from the one idea to the others?
