How Well Do You Know Your Scriptures?
What do the Scriptures teach is a root of all evil?
"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Timothy 6:10). Money is just a tool, but the love of money leads to putting money ahead of God and other people.
Whoever hates his brother is…
"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer” (1 John 3:15). Sin does not require word or action on my part. Even thoughts can be sin before God.
True or False: It is a sin to worry
Jesus tells us not to worry in Matthew 6:25. Worry is concern mixed with fear and reflects a lack of trust in God.
What is God's expectation for us?
Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48). God’s expectation is perfection right now. Thankfully Jesus lived perfectly as our substitute and through faith his righteousness is credited to us. He is “The LORD Our Righteousness” (Jeremiah 23:6).
If we ________ our sins, he is ___________ and ______________ forgive us our sins
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9). Rather than sweep sin under the rug, God wants us to have an authentic relationship that readily acknowledges our sin; out of that relationship of trust in him he forgives all sins.
How can we know if something is true?
There is right and wrong, good and evil…truth. “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21). There can be false prophets so God warns, “try the spirits whether they are of God” (1 John 4:1). The Bereans were praised because they “ searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." (Acts 17:11).
Who had a right relationship with God - the Pharisee or the tax collector? Why?
The tax collector recognized that he still sinned, but he went home justified before God (Luke 18:14) because he relied solely on God’s mercy.
True or False: When we die, we will still have more time to become perfected.
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." (Hebrews 9:27). The Bible describes that when we die we either live eternally with God in heaven together with all believers or we live apart from him in eternal punishment in hell (Matthew 25:31)
True or False: We are all children of God.
We are born into this world dead in sin (Ephesians 2:1) and hostile to God (Romans 8:7). We can only enter God’s family when we are adopted through faith (Galatians 4:4-5).
What is my purpose on Earth?
"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31). Our purpose in this life is not to show how good we are, but rather to point to how good God is.
