Is Catechising Biblical? Catechising involves teaching the truths of the Bible in a question and answer format. The truths are easier to remember because they are summarised in concise language.
It has always been one of the ways used by the Church to teach the Bible. In recent generations, however, it has been neglected to some extent. Most Churches have statements of faith where they outline what they believe.
A catechism is not just a document or statement. It is living and kept in the memory rather than just on paper. This makes it invaluable for future reference. Truth is ready, on the tip of the tongue (1 Peter 3:15).
This leaflet also commends the Westminster Shorter Catechism as a means of instruction.
