SCRIPTURE READINGS: Deuteronomy 5: 6-21; Romans 7: 7-12; Matthew 22: 34-40
3. Whence do you know your sin and misery?
A. Out of the law of God.
4. What does the law of God require of us?
A. Christ teaches that in a summary, Matt. 22: 37-40, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second like unto to it is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments the whole law hangeth, and the prophets.
5. Can you keep all this perfect?
A. In no wise; for I am prone by nature to hate God and my neighbour.
