CHURCH OF ENGLAND CATECHISM.

Question. What is your Name ?

Answer . N. or M.

Q. Who gave you this Name ?

A . My God Fathers and God Mothers in my Baptism; wherein I was made a Member of Christ, the Child of God, and an Inheritor of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Q. What did your God Fathers and God Mothers then for you ?

A . They did Promise and Vow three Things in my Name: First , That I should renounce the Devil and all his Works, the Pomp and Vanity of this wicked World, and all the sinful Lusts of the Flesh: Secondly , That I should believe all the Articles of the Christian Faith: And, Thirdly , That I should keep God's holy Will and Commandments, and walk in the Same all the Days of my Life.

Q. Dost thou not think, that thou art bound to Believe, and to Do, as they have promised for thee ?

A . Yes, verily; and by God's help so I will. And I heartily thank our Heavenly Father, that he hath called me to this State of Salvation, through Jesus Christ our Saviour. And I pray unto God to give me his Grace, that I may continue in the same unto my Life's End.

Catechist. Rehearse the Articles of thy Belief .

A . I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth:

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost; born of the Virgin Mary ; suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into Hell, the third Day he rose again from the Dead, he ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the Right Hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the Quick and the Dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Catholic Church; the Communion of Saints; the Forgiveness of Sins; the Resurrection of the Body, and the Life everlasting. Amen.

Q. What dost thou chiefly learn in these Articles of thy Belief ?

A . First, I learn to believe in God the Father, Who hath made me and all the World.

Secondly, In God the Son, who hath redeemed me, and all Mankind.

Thirdly, In God the Holy Ghost, who sanctifieth me, and all the Elect People of God.

Q. You said that your God Fathers and God Mothers did promise for you, that you should keep God's Commandments. Tell me how many there be ?

A . Ten.

Q. Which be they ?

A . The same which God spake in the twentieth Chapter of Exodus , saying, I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the Land of Egypt , out of the House of Bondage.

I. Thou shalt have none other Gods but Me.

II. Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven Image, nor the Likeness of any Thing, that is in Heaven above, or in the Earth beneath, or in the Water under the Earth... Continue reading book >>
