    Explanation
    The Father sent us his Son, Jesus Christ, to save us from sin and death.

In Matthew 16:16-17, Peter declares, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God," affirming his belief in Jesus' divine identity. This confession is significant because it demonstrates Peter's understanding of Jesus' role as the long-awaited Savior and shows his faith in Jesus' teachings.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The human heart craves God who implanted in each of us a desire to know and to love him.  True or False?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that many people believe that humans have an innate longing for a higher power or a spiritual connection. This belief is often rooted in the idea that humans are created beings and that the desire to know and love God is a natural part of our existence. This perspective suggests that the human heart craves a relationship with God, and this desire is implanted in each individual. Therefore, the statement "The human heart craves God who implanted in each of us a desire to know and to love him" is considered true.

    The human _________ alone can discover God's existence.

      Heart

    • B.

      Love

    • C.

      Faith

    • D.

      Intellect

    Correct Answer
    D. Intellect
    Explanation
    The human intellect alone can discover God's existence because it is through reasoning, logic, and critical thinking that individuals can explore and understand the concept of a higher power. While the heart, love, and faith are important aspects of spirituality, they are subjective and based on personal experiences and emotions. In contrast, the intellect allows for objective analysis and contemplation, enabling individuals to explore philosophical arguments, scientific evidence, and various religious teachings to arrive at their own understanding of God's existence.

This doctrine is a fundamental belief in Christianity and is supported by biblical teachings. It emphasizes the belief that Jesus is both fully divine and fully human, and that through his incarnation, he became the bridge between God and humanity. The Holy Bible, Catechism, and Magisterium are related to Christian teachings, but specifically, the Doctrine of Incarnation is the belief that encompasses the idea of Jesus becoming man.

Additionally, the Gospel of Luke mentions that Jesus was born during the census conducted by the Roman Emperor Augustus, which is believed to have taken place around 6 AD. Therefore, the most likely time frame for Jesus' birth is between 4-6 BC.

The exact year is uncertain, but these are the most widely accepted possibilities based on available evidence.

    • D.

      Other people, specifically the poor and outcast

    • E.

      By analyzing sermons

    Correct Answer
    E. By analyzing sermons
    Explanation
    Catholics believe that we cannot meet Jesus by analyzing sermons. This means that simply listening to or studying sermons alone does not allow Catholics to truly encounter Jesus. While sermons can provide guidance and teachings, Catholics believe that a personal relationship with Jesus is built through other means such as prayer, the reading of Sacred Scriptures, participating in the Seven Sacraments, and encountering Jesus in other people, particularly the poor and outcast. Therefore, analyzing sermons alone does not provide the same level of connection with Jesus as these other practices.
