"A person who rails at God in adversity, suffers without merit; moreover by his lack of resignation he adds to his punishment in the next life and experiences greater disquietude of mind in this life."

FROM THE "PENNY CATECHISM"

     

re Article 6 of Apostle's Creed

68.

What is the sixth article of the Creed?

 

The sixth article of the Creed is, 'he ascended into heaven; is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty'.

 
69. What do you mean by the words, 'he ascended into heaven'?

 

By the words, 'he ascended into heaven', I mean that our Saviour went up Body and Soul into heaven on Ascension Day, forty days after his resurrection.

 
  70. What do you mean by the words, 'is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty'?
 
 

By the words, 'is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.' I do not mean that God the Father has hands, for he is a spirit; but I mean that Christ, as God, is equal to the Father and, as man, is in the highest place in heaven.
