Purposeful Pop Quiz - Part Deux

"Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life.  And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it."  1 Peter 3:15

Here are the answers to last night's pop quiz:

1.  There are seven things the Lord detests.  TRUE
Proverbs 6:16-19 - "There are six things the Lord hates—no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family."

2.  There are many ways to get to Heaven.  FALSE
John 14:6 - Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me."

3.  If you do more good things than bad things, you will go to Heaven.  FALSE
John 14:6 and Matthew 7:21 - “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter."

4.  You must be baptized if you want to go to Heaven.  FALSE
Jesus said this to the thief on the cross next to him in Luke 23:43 - And Jesus replied, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

5.  People continuing to live a homosexual lifestyle can enter the Kingdom of Heaven just like anyone else.  FALSE
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

6.  It's okay to have sex outside of marriage as long as neither of you are currently married.  FALSE

8.  If you don't forgive others, God won't forgive you.  TRUE
Matthew 6:14-15 - “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins."

9.  Only people with the gift of evangelism are required to tell others about Jesus.  FALSE
Matthew 28:19-20 - "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

10. Love covers a multitude of sins.  TRUE
1 Peter 4:8 - "Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins."

So, how did you do?

If you made 100, how is your life demonstrating God's truth?

Since we know it is true that love covers a multitude of sins, I'm praying that we will all demonstrate His love more in the way that we live.  May everything we do be excellent and true, and as Colossians 4:6 encourages us, "Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person."

Goodnight, Runners.
