Heidelberg Question 12 & 13

Q & A 12

Q. According to God’s righteous judgment
we deserve punishment
both in this world and forever after:
how then can we escape this punishment
and return to God’s favor?

A. God requires that his justice be satisfied.^1
Therefore the claims of his justice
must be paid in full,
either by ourselves or another.^2

^1 Ex. 23:7; Rom. 2:1-11
^2 Isa. 53:11; Rom. 8:3-4

Q & A 13

Q. Can we pay this debt ourselves?

A. Certainly not.
Actually, we increase our guilt every day.^1

^1 Matt. 6:12; Rom. 2:4-5
