High School & Elders Catechism Bee Questions
These ten questions and answers will be displayed on the screen. The answers will have a blank word. Teams will need to enter in the correct word(s). The high schoolers will go first and the elders will leave the room. After the high schoolers are done, the elders will get the same questions.
What is your only comfort in life and in death?
That I am not my own, but belong— body and soul, in life and in death— to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.
Can you meet God’s law perfectly?
No. I have a natural tendency to hate God and my neighbor.
Are we so corrupt that we are totally unable to do any good and inclined toward all evil?
Yes, unless we are born again by the Spirit of God.
According to God’s righteous judgment we deserve punishment both now and in eternity: how then can we escape this punishment and return to God’s favor?
God requires that his justice be satisfied. Therefore the claims of this justice must be paid in full, either by ourselves or by another.
Then who is this mediator— true God and at the same time a true and righteous human?
Our Lord Jesus Christ, who was given to us to completely deliver us and make us right with God.
How is the Apostle’s Creed divided?
Into three parts: God the Father and our creation; God the Son and our deliverance; and God the Holy Spirit and our sanctification.
What is the providence of God?
The almighty and ever present power of God by which God upholds, as with his hand, heaven and earth and all creatures, and so rules them that… all things, in fact, come to us not by chance but by his fatherly hand.
If Jesus has risen into heaven, how can He be with us until the end of the world as He promised?
Christ is true man and true God. In his human nature Christ is not now on earth; but in his divinity, majesty, grace, and Spirit he is never absent from us.
How are you righteous before God?
Only by true faith in Jesus Christ.
It is through faith alone that we share in Christ and all his benefits: where then does that faith come from?
The Holy Spirit produces it in our hearts by the preaching of the holy gospel, and confirms it by the use of the holy sacraments.
