Grade 7 Confirmation Class

Tonight grade 7 Confirmation class is on Faith & Divine Revelation.

Faith is caused by Grace. Grace moves the Will to move the Mind to give form assent to the revealed Truths....

P1020991

Our proximate Rule of Faith is the Teaching Authority of the Church...

P1020992

Our Remote Rules of Faith are Scriptures (Bible) & Tradition....

P1020990

The Bible (Sacred Scriptures) is divided into the Old Testament (46 Books) & the New Testament (27 Books).

The entire Bible is inspired.

Inspiration:

1. The principal Author is God

2. Free from error

3. Only the things wished by God were written down

Divine Tradition: the unwritten word of God--- that is, truths revealed by God, though not written in the Bible, and given to the Church through word of month by Jesus Christ or by the apostles under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

Divine Tradition has been committed to writing especially by the Church Fathers (e.g. St. Augustine, St. Ambrose, St. Jerome, & St. John Chrysostom).

Protestant: Only Bible

Orthodox: Bible & Tradition

Catholic: Bible, Tradition, & Teaching Authority of the Church
