A brief answer: Since the Bible is sufficient, why do we need catechisms and creeds?


Ephesians 4

11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.


John Woodbridge, Research Professor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, answers the question “If Scripture is sufficient, why do we need catechisms?” related to his talk “Sola Scriptura: Worldview Formation, Renewing the Church, and Evangelism,” 2017 European Leadership Forum.

“Deep is calling on deep, in the roar of waters…” (Psalm 42:7)

It is clear from this and other evidence, that Catholicism is Christianity mingled with paganism or the accommodation of paganism within a nominally Christian system so that the faith once delivered to us is corrupt and barely recognisable.
