The Peace Catechism on Christian Principles,
Q. Is the Son of God a Prince?
A. He is “the Prince of life” and “the Prince of peace.”
Q. Why is he called the Prince of life?
A. Because he “hath abolished death and brought life and immortality to light.”
Q. How has he done all this?
A. He preached the words of eternal life; he died for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
Q. Who raised him from the dead?
A. “The God of peace brought again from the dead, the Lord Jesus,” and exalted him with his own right hand, to be a Prince and Saviour.”
Q. Did Christ teach his disciples that they should rise from the dead?
A. He said – “All that are in their graves shall hear his voice, and come forth.”
Q. Is Jesus the author of salvation to all men?
A. “Being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him.”
Q. What will become of us after being raised from the dead?
A. “We must all stand before the judgement seat of Christ;” and then everyone will be rewarded according to his works.
Q. What will Christ then say to good people?
A. “Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”
Q. What will he say to the wicked?
A. “Depart ye cursed into everlasting fire.”
Q. What will he say to those who have professed to be his friends, but have not obeyed his commands?
A. He will say to them, “I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Q. Why is our Saviour called the Prince of peace?
A. Because “we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ;” we “are reconciled to God by the death of his Son,” and his gospel is ” the word of reconciliation.”
