Christian Catechism – Knowing and Doing

Knowing and Doing

Is it necessary that we should know good?
Yes: but knowledge without the proper application of it in our lives puffeth up: charity edifieth. – 1 Cor. 8: 1.
In what spirit should we possess all knowledge?
We should be humble and unassuming; for if a man thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. – Gal, 6: 3.
What benefit do we derive from knowledge?
We must know the will of God, that as children of the light we may walk after God in righteousness and true holliness. – 1 Thes. 6: 4 – Eph. 4: 17-32, 2 Tim. 3: 15.
Does mere knowledge then not suffice?
No: we must be doers of the word. – James 1: 22,
What is the duty of Christians, in all they do, in word or deed?
All things whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so unto them. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. – Matt. 7: 12, Col. 3: 17.
What should we say when we have done all things?
We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. – Luke 17: 10.
