Quiz Your Knowledge of the Canons of Dordt (9)

Quiz Your Knowledge of the Canons of Dordt (9)

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.

Today, we begin with Heads Three/Four.

[To start from the beginning with our Canons quiz series, click here to see the 1st quiz on Head One, or here for the 1st quiz on Head Two.]

 

Quiz 9 on Canons Heads Three/Four

    1. The Third/Fourth Head of the Canons is titled, “Of the ______________ of Man, His ______________ to God, and the ______________Thereof.”

    2. True or false: The third point of the Arminians’ “Remonstrance” on man’s depravity was basically orthodox; the error is only detectable when the Arminians teach that grace “is not irresistible” in their fourth point. 

    3. True or false: The Third and Fourth Heads of Doctrine begin with an explanation of irresistible grace. 

    4. True or false: The three parts or aspects of the image of God are knowledge, righteousness, and holiness.

    5. True or false: The Canons teach that rationality (the ability to reason and to think) is part of the image of God.

    6. True or false: When man was created, he was neither morally good or morally evil; he was morally neutral.

    7. True or false: Original sin itself is sufficient to condemn the whole human race.

    8. True or false: We are not guilty of Adam’s sin, but only of our own sins. 

    9. True or false: Goodness, holiness, and righteousness could not belong to the will of man when he was created.

    10. True or false: Man’s understanding before the fall was adorned with a true and saving knowledge of God.

    11. True or false: Adam’s heart and will were upright, his affections were pure, and the whole man was holy. 

    12. True or false: God is the Author of man’s fall into sin and is responsible for it. 

    13. True or false: Before the fall Adam had a freewill, which he abused in order to choose evil. 

    14. True or false: Man still has freewill by which he can choose or not choose all manner of good presented to him. 

    15. True or false: In the fall of man every part of man became corrupted by sin except his will.

    16. True or false: Man’s mind is blind and dark; man’s judgment is perverse; and man’s heart is obdurate.

    17. True or false: Man’s will is wicked and rebellious; and man’s affections are impure.

    18. True or false: Adam’s fall into sin affected only Adam, except insofar as other human beings imitate his sin. 

    19. True or false: All the posterity of Adam, except Christ, derive corruption, even a vicious nature, from Adam. 

    20. True or false: All men are prone to evil, incapable of good, dead in sin, and in bondage to sin.

    21. True or false: Although men because of their depravity are unable to return to God, they can be and are willing

    22. True or false: Men after the fall are able to dispose themselves or make themselves receptive to salvation.

    23. True or false: The only hope for totally depraved human beings is the regenerating grace of the Holy Spirit. 

    24. True or false: After the fall all spiritual and natural light—including man’s reason, his moral conscience, his ability to approve of and act according to an external moral code—is entirely extinguished

    25. True or false: Man’s will has never been corrupted, but only hindered through the darkness of man’s mind.
