FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is the Westminster Shorter Catechism?
- The Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms (often referred to collectively as the 'Westminster Standards') were written in England in the mid-17th century as a summary of biblical doctrine. The Bible is the only infallible rule of Christian faith and practice. However, the Westminster Standards have proven to be a wonderfully useful tool in teaching Scripture and guiding the proper understanding of it.
- Why use catechisms for teaching children?
- Catechisms were the standard for training children in the basics of the Christian faith for centuries. The simple question-and-answer format made them ideal for memorization and ensured that a child could answer simple questions regarding the attributes of God and the duty of mankind. Modern teaching techniques have moved away from proven methods in favor of simple story-telling, and the result has been that many children attend church for years without being able to answer basic questions about the Christian faith. At Catechism for Kids, we believe that the catechisms are a fantastic tool for teaching children the faith, and it is our goal to make catechisms more accessible and understandable to children
