Heidelberg Catechism, Questions and Answers 9-11

Q. Does not God then wrong man, by requiring of Him in His law that which he cannot perform?

A. No: for God so made man, that he could perform it; but man, through the instigation of the devil, by willful disobedience deprived himself and all his posterity of this power.

Q. Will God suffer such disobedience and apostasy to go unpunished?

A. By no means; but He is terribly displeased with our inborn as well as actual sins, and will punish them in just judgment in time and eternity, as He has declared: Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.

Q. Is then God not merciful?

A. God is indeed merciful, but He is likewise just; wherefore His justice requires that sin, which is committed against the most high majesty of God, be also punished with extreme, that is, with everlasting punishment both of body and soul.

* 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.
