There are some fun websites, to be sure. I personally enjoy those websites that promise to reveal a person’s level of education, or I.Q. I scored well with those sites dealing with history, and the Bible. I was on a roll with the I.Q. test, scoring 12 out of the first 12, before the program locked up. These programs have a tendency to do that, on my computer at least. I believe it is because of the overload from all the junk advertisements that are included on the site, and maybe because my computer is several years old. I need to upgrade.
It is said that one form of flattery is imitation. With that in mind, let me suggest that how you score on the following questions, might give you a pretty good indication if you are going to go to heaven someday, provided you believe there is life after death. Some do not. Some believe that physical death ends a person’s existence. I am not of that persuasion. Here then is a gospel challenge. What will your score be? Each answer is worth ten points. The test is simple. Answer, True, or False.
Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. True False
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.” (Matt. 1:18-20)
Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. True False
“And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matt. 16:16)
Jesus Christ died on a cross for sinners. True False
“And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, 34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. 35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.” (Matt. 27:33-35)
Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the world. True False
“And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.” (1 John 4:14)
Jesus Christ rose again from the dead on the third day. True False
“And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.” (Matt. 28:5-7)
Jesus Christ was seen by many after His resurrection. True False
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.” (1 Cor. 15:3-8)
Jesus Christ ascended into heaven. True False
“When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.” (Acts 1:6-9)
Jesus Christ shall return the second time for all who believe. True False
“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” (Heb. 9:28)
Jesus Christ has been called upon, and confessed. True False
“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.” (Rom. 10:8-11)
Jesus Christ has been received, by faith, as Lord and Saviour. True False
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
If you scored 100, welcome to the family of God while you await your heavenly home.
If you scored 90, you are close to the kingdom of heaven.
If you scored 80, then perhaps you are a seeker with sincere questions.
If you scored 70, or below, beware. It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God who has offered you His love, mercy, and grace, in the person of His dearly beloved Son. Hear ye Him.
So, what is your spiritual I.Q.? How high did you score?
