Discussion Questions: Baptist Catechism 56 & 57

  • What is the second commandment?
  • In your own words, what does it clearly forbid? 
  • Why do you think God forbids us from making images of him? What reasons would you give to the person who says that images are helpful (besides God’s word says no)?
  •  What reasons are annexed (added) to the second commandment? What does each of these phrases mean? 
  • With all of this in mind, should we make images of Jesus, who is the eternal Son of God who came in the flesh, and is worthy to receive worship? 
  • If images are incapable of telling us the truth about God and Christ, where must we go to find the truth about them?

"Him we proclaim,
warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom,
that we may present everyone mature in Christ."
