90 or greater = EXCELLENT     80 or greater -  GOOD    70 or greater = POOR     Less than 70 = READ YOUR BIBLE


1  What is God’s Name?

Answer A.

Exodus 34:14  For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:


   Jehovah is a miss-pronunciation of YWHW (Yahweh) which was forbidden to speak.  Readers of the Hebrew scriptures were supposed to use the word ADONAI it is place.


2.  What is the last of the Ten Commandments?

Answer C,

Exodus 34:26  The first of the first fruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.


   There is only one list called “THE TEN COMMANDMENTS” in the Bible.  There were three sets of commandment.  The first  set was just recited by Moses the first time he came down from Mount Sinai, and are contained in Exodus: 20 2 - 17.  These are the most commonly used set in the Christian community today.


The first set of stone tables was brought down by Moses on a subsequent trip up the mountain ,as contained in Exodus 31:18.  These tablets were destroyed by Moses when he returned and saw the people worshipping the Golden Calf.  See Exodus 32:19,

    Moses then went up the mountain once more, this time for a replacement set of tablets which he broke.  God tells Moses to do the following:

Exodus 34:1  And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.


   Now it is at this points that the Christian community should question what they have been taught, for either they should accept this chapter as the Ten commandments or call their God a liar.  


Exodus 34:28  And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.


Listed below is a summary of the Ten Commandments as contained in Exodus 34:

1)  Thou shalt worship no other God.  2)  Thou shalt make thee no molten god.  3)  The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep  4)  Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest  5)  Thou shalt observe the feast of weeks.  6)  Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord God.  7)  Thou shalt not offer blood of my sacrifice with leaven.  8)Neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the Passover be left until the morning.  9)The firs of the first fruits of thy land shalt thou bring unto the house of the Lord thy God.  10)  Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.


Even Jesus was unclear as to the list  see Mathew 19: 17-19 only a list of 6.  


3,  What is the penalty for working on the Sabbath?

Answer A,

Exodus 35:2  Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.

Deuteronomy 21:18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

Deuteronomy 21:20  And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.

Deuteronomy 21:21  And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and      all Israel shall hear, and fear.

Deuteronomy 22:14  And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:

Deuteronomy 22:15  Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:

Deuteronomy 22:16  And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;

Deuteronomy 22:17  And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.

Deuteronomy 22:19  And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

Deuteronomy  22:20  But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:

Deuteronomy 22:21  Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

It is un-Christian like to ask your employer for raise, but how many modern day families abide by this.  Should you be able to pick and choose  what you are to follow in the Bible - NOT if you call yourself a Christian.  There are no half way measures it is either all or nothing.
