Heidelberg Catechism, Questions and Answers 6-8

Q. Did God create man thus wicked and perverse?

A. No, but God created man good, and after His own image, that is, in righteousness and true holiness; that he might rightly know God his Creator, heartily love Him, and live with Him in eternal blessedness, to praise and glorify Him.

Q. Whence then comes this depraved nature of man?

A. From the fall and disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, in Paradise, whereby our nature became so corrupt, that we are all conceived and born in sin.

Q. But are we so far depraved, that we are wholly unapt to any good and prone to all evil?

A. Yes, unless we are born again by the Spirit of God.

Hymn # 125 (Verse 1)                                     “Let All Things Now Living”

Let all things now living, a song of thanksgiving

To God the Creator triumphantly raise,

Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,

Who guides us and leads to the end of our days.

His banners are o’er us, his light goes before us,

A pillar of fire shining forth in the night,

‘til shadows have vanished and darkness is banished,

As forward we travel from light into light.

  • Romans 11:33-36

    Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
    For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid?
    For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
