Discussion Questions: Baptist Catechism 58 & 59

  • What is the third commandment?
  • The first four commandments are about the worship of God. The first tells us who is to be worshipped. The second tells us how. What aspect of worship does the third commandment address?
  • What do you think most people would say if asked, what does the third commandment forbid?
  • How does question 59 of our catechism help us to see that the third commandment is about more than not using God’s name, or the name of Christ, as a swear word?
  • What does it mean to take the name of the LORD? And what does it mean to do so in vain?
  • Instead of taking the name of the LORD in vain, what should we do?
  • Have you kept this law perfectly? What then must we do to be saved?
