If you’ve never seen it, it’s based on a true story about the heroics of a conscientious objector during World War 2.

Question: What is the chief end of man? Answer: Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever. Hear me out before clicking away. The “Westminster Catechism” was written by the Church of England and Scotland a few hundred years ago to say what they believed.
