Assignment 3/18 – Due March 25
We’ve started the Articles! That means we get to memorize some of the most challenging material in the Catechism (the longest at least). It’s not going to happen if you only study once a week. Give it 10 – 15 minutes a day and you might surprised how much you can memorize!
1. What are the three major Christian creeds?
a. The Apostle’s Creed
b. The Nicene Creed
c. The Athanasian Creed
2. What does Trinity mean?
Trinity means “Three in one.”
3. How many Gods are there?
Deuteronomy 6:4 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.
1 Corinthians 8:4 4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world and that there is no God but one.
4. Passage – What do we mean when we say “I believe in God” (What is faith)?
Hebrews 11:1 1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 1) We believe that God is true and that everything He has told us in the Bible is true (even when I don’t understand it.) 2) We believe all of God’s promises and we trust in Him for everything. 3) We are God’s children when we believe.
5. What is God like?
1) Omniscient (All-knowing)
2) Omnipresent (Everywhere at the same time)
3) Omnipotent (All-powerful)
6. The First Article
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
What does this mean?
I believe that God created me and all that exists, and that he gave me my body and soul, eyes, ears and all my members, my mind and all my abilities.
And I believe that God still preserves me by richly and daily providing clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, land, cattle, and all I own, and all I need to keep my body and life.
