Welcome to the Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for “By What Scriptural Rules May Catechising Be So Managed, As That It May Become Most Universally Profitable” (1674, reprinted 1844) by Thomas Lye

Based on “Train up,” or catechise, “a child in the way he should go,” or in his way: “and When he is old, he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6).

Shows that there are several texts of Scripture from which the learned conclude that this mode of Catechising was used in the apostles’ days, and by the apostles themselves and their immediate successors; and this in imitation of the Jews who had “a form of knowledge and of the truth in the law,” (Rom. 2:20), out of which they instructed the ignorant, and taught babes.

Thus, the apostle had given the Romans a “form of doctrine”; (Rom. 5:17); and to Timothy “a form of sound words”; (2 Tim. 1:13); “a form of sound words,” which contained “the principles of the doctrine of Christ,” and “the first principles of the oracles of God;” six whereof are distinctly mentioned, Heb. 5:12; 6:1,2.

Proves how deeply parents and ministers are obliged to this duty, what the duty is, and how it is best performed.
