Heidelcast 185: What Must A Christian Believe? (3)—“Credo

This is episode 3 in the series, What Must A Christian Believe? So far we have looked at the biblical and early Christian practice of confessing the faith and what it means to say Credo or “I believe.” That is what we are discussing in this episode. What do Christians mean when we say, “I believe”? Another way to put it is to ask, “What is true faith?” That is the question Heidelberg Catechism 21 asks and answers: “True faith is not only a certain knowledge whereby I hold for truth all that God has revealed to us in His Word; but also a hearty trust, which the Holy Spirit works in me by the Gospel, that not only to others, but to me also, forgiveness of sins, everlasting righteousness and salvation are freely given by God, merely of grace, only for the sake of Christ’s merits.” True faith has three aspects: knowledge, assent, and trust. In this episode we are thinking about trust. What does it mean to trust Christ and his Word?
