There needs to be a way to access and understand a child’s presuppositions. The True/False Catechism which I am writing will hopefully be one such way. I’m writing it for children 4 years old through 3rd grade, and it is designed to address some of the foundational categories and logic which will eventually be important for grasping the gospel itself.
By using T/F questions, children know they have a 50/50 chance of answering correctly. The True/False approach makes it easy to ask the important followup question: “Why do you think that?” and, in so doing, opens up the world of a child’ s preconceived notions in a way which has not been possible using any other catechism. Though in the early stages of development, here are a few sample questions to chew on:
T/F: God can speak Chinese.
T/F: God created the world just as He wanted it.
T/F: The world is just as God wanted it.
T/F: Our relationship with God is like our relationship with our friends.
T/F: Our relationship with God is like our relationship with Mom and Dad.
T/F: God knows what you are getting for Christmas next year.
