Catechism #90-91

I wish I had been familiar with Q91 last year before my debate with Dan Barker!

Question #90: What is the coming-to-life of the new self?

Answer: It is wholehearted joy in God through Christ and a delight to do every kind of good as God wants us to (Ps. 51:8, 12; Isa.57:15; Rom. 5:1; 14:17; Rom. 6:10-11; Gal. 2:20).

Question #91: What do we do that is good?

Answer: Only that which arises out of true faith, conforms to God's law, and is done for his glory; and not that which is based on what we think is right or on established human tradition (John 15:5; Heb. 11:6; Lev. 18:4; 1 Sam. 15:22; Eph. 2:10; 1 Cor. 10:31; Deut. 12:32; Isa. 29:13; Ezek. 20:18-19; Matt. 15:7-9).
