Catechumens typically study the teachings and beliefs of a particular faith, participate in religious rituals and practices, and undergo spiritual formation before being baptized.

    Correct Answer
    A. People who haven't been baptized.
    Explanation
    Baptism is a religious ceremony that is typically performed on individuals who have not yet been baptized. It is a rite of initiation and purification in many Christian denominations.

    • D.

      A and B

    Correct Answer

    Through Baptism, both Original Sin and all other sins committed prior to Baptism are forgiven. Original Sin refers to the inherited sinful nature that all humans are born with, while other sins refer to the personal sins committed by individuals.

    Explanation
    Concupiscence refers to the strong desire or inclination towards something, particularly of a sexual nature. It is often used to describe intense or excessive sexual desire. The given answer, "Something that is voluntary, a free choice," does not accurately define concupiscence. Concupiscence is more about an involuntary desire or inclination, rather than a deliberate or voluntary choice.
