Catechism for Converting Paedocommunionists

Q. 85.   What does Proverbs 22:6 really mean and require? A. 85.  "Catechize a lad for the time his beard begins to grow!"   Attaining adolescence is to be the normal terminus ad quem of catechizing – for admission to the Lord’s Supper.

Q. 86.   Was the Passover at Second Chronicles thirty restrictive, or for "whosoever will?" A. 86.    The Westminster Larger Catechism (171) cited inter alia also from that chapter to prove that "they that receive the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper are, before  they come – to prepare themselves thereto, by examining themselves" – unlike those who at Second Chronicles 30:18 "had not cleansed themselves yet did…eat the Passover" so very sinfully.
