Westminster Shorter Catechism, Q I - III

Something that I've thought about for some time and finally started doing was learning the Shorter Catechism. I've been taking them at the steady pace of three questions per week, and figured it was a good idea to review them here on the blog as well.

I. Ques. What is the chief end of man?

Ans. Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.

II. Ques. What rule hath God given to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him?

Ans. The word of God, which is contained in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him.

III. Ques. What do the Scriptures principally teach?

Ans. The Scriptures principally teach what man is to believe concerning God, and what duty God requires of man.
