A Quiz for Your Pastors, Elders, Deacons and Bible Teachers
This site is for English speaking Christians who believe the Bible is God’s Holy and infallible Word and the inerrant guide to faith and practice. If you administer this quiz to your pastor or a deacon, elder or Bible teacher you will find most of them don’t believe there is an English Bible anywhere in the world without some error. Infallible means no error at all. Christians (such as myself) who believe there is an infallible English Bible are many times looked on with sympathy (because they’re not thought to have a good brain) or even scorn by those who believe every bible has some error. This quiz will help you determine what category your respected teacher of heavenly things falls into.
Be advised, you may have to administer the quiz a little at a time so it doesn’t become obvious where the questions are leading. It’s also very possible the attempt will be made to deflect the question or give an evasive answer. Don’t be satisfied unless the very question asked is answered. The questions are extremely simple. They can be answered with a simple yes or no or just a few words. If more than a sentence is used to answer them, you are having smoke blown at you.
The quiz was also intended for Seventh-day Adventists who allegedly believe in following the Bible and the Bible only which is also known as sola scriptura. I believe there is an infallible Bible and that Ellen G. White was a prophet inspired by the same Holy Ghost that inspired the holy men of God that wrote the Holy Scriptures of old. If you are not a Seventh-day Adventist, skip the questions on the Spirit of Prophecy and Ellen G. White. The quiz will still work. The wording can be changed a little to suit the occasion.
Ellen G. White and the Spirit of Prophecy
1. Do you believe the writings of Ellen G. White were inspired by the same Holy Ghost that inspired other authors of Scripture such as Moses, Paul, etc?
The English Bible
1. Do you believe there is an infallible English Bible?
2. If the answer is yes, ask which one.
