Quiz Your Knowledge of the Canons of Dordt (4)

The RFPA blog editor, Rev. Martyn McGeown, enjoys teaching the creeds in his capacity as pastor of Providence PRC. To that end, he has written a series of quizzes for our blog readers, to test readers' knowledge of the Canons of Dordt. Try them out, test yourselves and your friends and family, and may the questions spur you on to familiarize yourselves with the confessions.

We continue with Head One.

Quiz 4 on Canons Head One (Articles 12-18; Rejection of Errors 7-9)

76. True or false: Reprobation, or rejection, is, like election, eternal, unchangeable, and unconditional.

77. True or false: God reprobates, or rejects, some because he foresees that they will not believe.

78. True or false: Damnation, or the actual condemnation of some to hell, takes place on the basis of their sin.

79. True or false: The reason for God’s decree of reprobation is to display God’s wrath and to make his power known.

80. True or false: Reprobation makes God the author of—the doer of, the tempter to, the approver of—sin. 

81. True or false: Reprobation reveals God to be the righteous judge and avenger of sin.

82. True or false: It is possible in this life to know with certainty that another person is a reprobate.

83. True or false: If we have doubts about another person, we should view him and treat him as reprobate. 

84. True or false: If we do not experience God’s grace operating in us, we should conclude that we are reprobate.

85. True or false: If I am troubled by my sins, I should conclude that I am reprobate and not repent of my sins. 

86. True or false: If we do not experience God’s grace operating in our lives, we should avoid the preaching since it is only for believers.

87. True or false: If we find too much sin in our lives, over which we sorrow, and if our lives, despite our desires, are not as holy as we long for them to be, we are in all likelihood reprobate. 

88. True or false: If we are weak Christians, God will quickly become impatient with us and destroy us.

89. True or false: Those who deliberately walk in sin and refuse to be converted should consider themselves elect.

90. True or false: If we think that we are reprobate, the best thing to do is to despair and to live a wicked life. 

91. True or false: The children of believers are naturally better than the children of unbelievers.

92. True or false: Godly parents may have no hope for a child who dies before he can confess his faith in Jesus.

93. True or false: Godly parents have no reason to doubt the salvation of their infant children who die in infancy.

94. True or false: Our response to the doctrine of divine predestination should be to adore God’s holy mysteries. 

95. True or false: The best response to the doctrine of divine predestination is to murmur that God is unjust.
