First question - Heidelberg v Westminster Shorter

The first thing that struck me when I opened the Heidelberg book was the first question and how totally different is is to what we're used to (Man's chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever). Rev JB dealt with that in his sermon, and I'm happy to accept what he says, but....I still think that were they going to draw up a catechism today, they'd probably opt for 'our' beginning! (Think it's 1-up for us!)

  1. I hadn't thought about the different beginnings until I heard about them in the sermon. The HC doesn't come to glorifying God in Lord's Day 3, at question 6. It seems they each come from a different perspective at the beginning.
