I too ran out of time. Awfully hard to read all those questions in the time allotted. Only got 8 right before time ran out. I feel pretty good about my knowledge of the Bible. But, we can always use a refresher course!

Deb said...

To be honest, I expected to get them all right because I've read and studied the Bible for a long time. But even the first question about the Lord's prayer I missed! (Pride cometh before a fall!) :)
Time did run out on me, but I'd like to be entered in your giveaway. Thanks!

Sonya said...

DePro said...

7 for me.

Pam said...

I only got 4 which is terribly embarrassing. I tend to read slowly, and 1 I answered wrong and then tried to change and it wouldn't let me so I wasted a lot of time trying to fix that. Oh well....interesting to take though. Thanks for the drawing. I'd love to win.

Jenndiggy said...

I ran out of time, got 11/15. But I had another window open doing something else, too. I was top Bible quizzer in my denomination's Bible quizzing in high school and visited Israel a few years ago, so I shouldn't have missed any! ARGH!

Belinda said...

Badly. I ran out of time and I think I need to go read more.
Thanks!

cheric said...

Wow! I'm so proud of all of you for even taking the Biblical Literacy Test. It says to me that you desire to grow in your faith- an admirable goal. It is my hope and prayer that this little exercise was an encouragement to you to get into the Word on a daily basis. There are people whom God needs to speak to through you and I, but He first desires to fill us to overflowing with the knowledge and wisdom found in His Word. Whether you win the basket or not, I count it a blessing to have met you on this tour.
In His Name,
Cheri
