    But # 12????

    Josh

    That was one for those who think they know it all! ?

    These questions are more like Bible Truvia than IQ. They are designed specifically for those who have a detail oriented, rather than broad range approach to study.
    Only people with specific course work, learning approach and experience will be able to answer them correctly.
    It isn’t a measure of anyone’s IQ so don’t feel “less than” if you don’t get the correct answers.

    I got 13/15. I knew 10 (I think) and guessed 3/5. I agree that they’re largely trivia. I didn’t have much clue about the heresies, having only heard of a few of them.

    Thinking about today’s various theological & ecclesiastical controversies, I wonder, had they occurred in the times of ecumenical councils, whether some definitive answers would have been given that anathematised sections of the Church (or possibly caused the Church to conform mostly on that point).

    There are parachurch bodies that require assent to something the Nicene Creed, which clarifies Christology but says nothing about liturgy, women in leadership, gifts of the Spirit, church polity, sacraments, musical styles etc.

    Yes, it’s a bit more like trivia on this one. To do the “broad range” would require essays… and I’ve already marked enough of those in my life! ?

    Oh yes, “IQ” is merely what we used as the consistent title. No one should feel “less than” – this is fun, not work!

    “…but says nothing about liturgy, women in leadership, gifts of the Spirit, church polity, sacraments, musical styles etc.”

    I doubt if we could find agreement agreement on such matters in a local congregation these days!

    IMO Christians should be less concerned about what people have memorized (though there’s nothing wrong with, and often something very good about, Scripture memorization), and more concerned that people hear Scripture for what it is, i.e., as the Word of God, and believe it and obey it as such.

    Jean

    Thank you so much for your opinion….

  10. Babylon's Dread says:

    For the pedantic.. “love of money is the root of all evil” is the text, but someone could say “money is the root of all evil”… covering my bets ? !

  12. Josh The Baptist says:

    Had to guess on 4, 12 , and 13. Guessed wrong on 1 of those.

    Perhaps Joel Osteen should enroll in my Bible College 🙂 🙂 🙂

  13. Duane Arnold says:

    BD and Josh

    Well done. I lifted some of these from my General Ordination Exam – as part of the four day examination, we had 150 questions like this and last week to answer in two hours…

  14. Josh The Baptist says:

    Between now and May I have to take a similar exam from the accrediting agency in order to receive my MDiV. Hope there are more like these, and less on heresies 🙂

  15. The New Victor says:

    11. Guessed on a few.

  16. Duane Arnold says:

    New Victor

    Well done… guessing is permitted ? !

  17. Alistair says:

    No. 15 is “the root of all kinds of evil”, isn’t it?

  18. pstrmike says:

    15/15

    Childs I have read, Sanders not familiar.

  19. CostcoCal says:

    Exodus and Deuteronomy both are the Word of God. To merely “contain” versions of it then places my vulues above It’s own.

  20. Duane Arnold says:

    Alistair

    Yes, that’s why I placed it as a “give-away” – for the quote and the meaning…

  21. Duane Arnold says:

    Well done! Funny how the “verse by verse” method of study has stayed with us all these years…
