A Puritan Catechism: Question 1

Q. What is the chief end of man?

A. Man's chief end is to glorify God (1 Cor. 10:31), and to enjoy him for ever (Ps. 73:25-26).

This is pretty random, but are all Catechsims Reformed?

I know that there is a Catholic catechism and I believe the Lutherans have one as well. Beyond that, the only ones I've heard of are Reformed.

Jacob -- love the Puritan Catechism! Thank you for posting on it. Excellent, foundational, encouraging, inspiring, correctional stuff.

I only recently found the Puritan Catechism (last spring?) and am enjoying it.
