Donna, you are still honoring your parents by not being around them.
If they are sinning, you should not be apart of the sinning.
You honor them by not telling people their faults (unless they faults is harming others)
Just don't curse them or speak harsh to them.
God knows their more than you.
Pray for them always.
Praying is the BEST OF HONORING THEM.

The JEWS were told to honor their father and mother REGARDLESS of their faults and corruption/injustices. God is no respecter of "PERSONS.
Many people are taught to be a "PERSON" of THE WORLD (taught to be a product of MAN'S traditions and all of man's teachings, habits and mannerisms).
We are to be sons of "I am who I am" (the only way a "SOUL" can truly relate to "I am who I am" is to be true to who we really are instead of being a hypocrite.
("I will put him with the hypocrites, there men will weep and gnash their teeth").
Jesus said that
if an uncircumcized man keeps THE PRECEPTS/principles of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be seen as circumcision?

Being yoked together is regarding husband and wife. A Christian should not marry a non-Christian. As the daughter of a household you are not yoked to them (equally or unequally). If this disturbs you so much it is probably time you started making an effort to be independent of them. Never stop praying for them but, at the same time, ask God to show you what you should do with your own life.

\\ If Im living with my parents and they are not saved, living in sin
(adultery included), and Im trying to live a holy life unto the Lord, what do I do?\\
It boils down to this: Their house, their rules.
**Hi, Donna (c: God bless you (c: We could add molesters to the list, and murderers, adulterers, and narcissists like Hitler and Saddam, and pedophile predators . . . and church hypocrites.**
That's the wonderful thing about the Church, Bill. No matter how many hypocrites are in it, there's ALWAYS room for one more.
Christ is risen!

"How should I honor them like this?" By holding your peace, and staying out of their business, until you are free to, or capable of leaving their home.

Donna, you said you loved them. Treat them with honor even tho you hate what they do. For your own peace, try to ignore their shortcomings and pray for them. Never give up on them.

Hi, Donna (c: God bless you (c: We could add molesters to the list, and murderers, adulterers, and narcissists like Hitler and Saddam, and pedophile predators . . . and church hypocrites.
"If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men." (Romans 12:18)
Jesus suffered and died on the cross, with hope for any and all evil people. So, we honor Jesus by seeking all He desires for any evil person.
And I would say we honor evil people, by our good example which can help them (c:
You are in God's family, now, so they are not your real family, but the same as any other sinners we reach to. I offer that 1 Peter 3:1-4 shows how our example can be used by God to win any disobedient person.

The commandment says to honor your father and mother, not what John Jones or Mary Jones does or what kind of people they are.
Christ is risen!

How do we honor those types of parents? Honoring our parents has nothing to do with what they do or not do. It is a commandment with no conditions. Honoring mother and father is simply showing them respect, not hitting them, cursing them, or showing them any type of disrespect, no matter what you may think of them.
