I'm playing around with developing a contemporary catechism (not so much for memorizing as for instruction). love to know what you think, pro and con. First three Q and A's below.
1. Who is the Christian God?
“I am/will be who I am/will be” (Ex.3:14).
God is and will be utterly faithful to himself and to the world he created.
2. Why did this God create our world?
To live with us here in shalom (a world rightly ordered in every way), lavishing his love and expending his power to bring this state of affairs to be.
3. Why did God create us?
To be his image-bearers. That is, his royal representatives who reflect his character and will throughout the world and care for and nurture the creation to its full flourishing.
