Some of us, especially some of us who are a bit older, grew up hearing the [shorter] Catechism, or at least some subset of it. The idea of Catechism is to have a series of questions, and answers, to help teach the basics of the Christian faith. I’m not sure I know anybody who really knows all the Catechism questions and answers. A lot of people remember question, and answer, #1.
Q: What is the chief end of man?
A: The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.
(A number of people leave off the last four words)
What is it to glorify God?
That one takes a little effort and I’m not even going to try to answer it here. If we can assume that this is a significant piece of Christianity, the related question is, “How often do you see this in everyday life?” Or, who do you know who exhibits a life that is regularly glorifying to God. Shouldn’t Christians be surrounded by other Christians who are key examples of this?
Who do YOU know?
It’s somewhat easy to think of people of the past (dead people) who fit this. Why is that easier?
