We are going to start a daily discussion on the Westminster Shorter Catechism. Each day we will post each question until we complete all 107 questions. If you would like to view a list of the questions go to this link.[url=http://www.opc.org/documents/WSC.html]Westminster Shorter Chatechism[/url]While this discussion is not meant to be a Calvinism vs. Armenian, it is a discussion to help us draw closer to the Father and know how He wants us to live and know Him. Amen?Grace,Doug

Hi DougI don't mean to forestall the discussion here but SIers might like to know that Thomas Watson's A Body of Divinity is freely available on the web in several different formats.This is a tour through the Shorter Catechism and is a wonderful book. If folk are unfamiliar with it, be patient, and you will discover how many of your favourite sayings were originally written by Watson. There is a spirit of devotion to the Lord and His people which constantly breathes through Watson's writings. I have to confess, he is my favourite puritan.
I agree, Thomas Watson's writings are excellent.Grace,Doug

I'm looking forward to this study, I have been planning on taking my family through a catechism after we finish with our current study on the Sermon on the Mount during our morning devotional time together. I have been considering either the Heidelberg Catechism or the Westminster. Would anyone here care to comment on the differences between the two? Also, thanks to Ron for that link. God is good! In Christ,Ron
Brother Doug are you going to post the answers and the scriptural refrences? just wondering.
