Faith Bible Quiz #1

Take this quiz on topics related to our faith series.

1.  Abraham’s faith/belief in God was counted as:
    1. Obedience
    2. Righteousness
    3. Favor
    4. Grace

Galatians 3:6-7
7 Therefore,be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham.

B. Righteousness

Abraham was considered a righteous man because of his belief in God.  We are considered righteous because of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

From the lesson: What is Faith?

2.  Without faith it is impossible to:
  1. Talk to God
  2. Become rich
  3. Gain God’s favor
  4. Please God

Hebrews 11:6
6And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

D.  Please God

From the lesson: What is Faith?

3.  To have faith you must
  1. Believe in Jesus
  2. Have heard that Jesus is the Messiah
  3. Believe that Jesus is the Messiah
  4. Accept Jesus as your Messiah/Lord
  5. All of the above

Romans 10:14-17
14How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? 15How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!”
  16However, they did not all heed the good news; for Isaiah says, “LORD, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT?” 17So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

E. All of the above

From the lesson: What is Faith?

4.  What is the assurance of things we hope don’t happen and the conviction of things not seen?
  1. Doubt
  2. Faith
  3. Fear
  4. Sin

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
  • The opposite of this verse
C. Fear

We often focus on a negative circumstance.   Fear convinces us that the circumstance will happen.   
Faith convinces us that positive things will happen.  Fear is the opposite of faith.

From the lesson: What is Faith?

5.  The Word of Faith doctrine states
  • Christians can access the power of faith or fear through speech
  • You can achieve wealth and health through the declaration of what the Holy Bible said
  • God wants you to have material blessings
  • If you have faith God will bless you materially
  • The more you tithe (seed) the more you will be blessed

The problem with this doctrine is often:
  1. It focuses on getting what you want instead of what God wants
  2. We shouldn't ask God for what we want?
  3. Speaking what you want has no effect
  4. God wants us to live meagerly.
  5. All of the above

  1. It focuses on getting what you want instead of what God wants

The doctrine restates a common desire of man (wordly success) and implies that that is a primary concern of God.  We don’t want to focus all of our religious energy on figuring out how we can gain material things - things of the world.  We can have desires, but when fulfilling our worldly desires becomes the focus of all that is taught there is a problem.   Developing a relationship with God and determining God’s will for our lives should be a higher goal than trying to obtain the earthly goals that society has put in us.  You shouldn’t expect to be rewarded for tithing.  We tithe because God deserves it.  Tithing shouldn’t be loaning your money to God and expecting interest to be earned on it.

From the lesson: Faith In What?

6. What is something people put their faith in
    1. Their pastor
    2. An experience with God or the Holy Spirit
    3. Healing
    4. A financial blessing
    5. All of the above

E. All of the above

Faith is the “evidence of things unseen”.  If you are seeing or receiving tangible confirmation then you don’t need faith.  You shouldn’t need a supernatural healing, a stirring sermon, a prophetic word, a financial break through, or evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit to confirm your faith.  Our faith should be in the belief that Jesus died to save our sins and give us eternal life.  

From the lesson:  Faith In What?

7. Miracles in the bible were most often intended to:
  1. Exalt the person performing the miracle
  2. Reward a faithful person
  3. Give God glory
  4. Demonstrate the power of faith

C. Give God glory

Jesus and the disciples only performed miracles that God wanted them to perform.  The result was always God getting the glory.  Faith is not the only component needed for a miracle.  God only performs miracles in scenarios where the kingdom is benefited in some way.  Miracles aren’t a result of human action.

8. Why did God punish Moses when he struck the rock?
  1. Because he struck it twice
  2. Because Moses didn’t honor God
  3. Because the Israelites weren’t thirsty for water
  4. Because God told him to turn his staff into a serpent

Numbers 20:12
12But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.”

B. Because Moses didn’t honor God

9. Which factors aid in causing heart disease?
  1. Lack of faith
  2. low self-esteem
  3. low socioeconomic status
  4. Anger
  5. All of the above

E. All of the above

Scientists have shown that stress can cause heart disease (as well as kidney failure, diabetes, and many other diseases).  A cardiologist proved that the following factored can also lead to heart disease (because of stress):  low self-esteem, low socioeconomic status, inadequate social support, anger, hostility, and hopelessness.  Faith can help ease all of these issues by taking the focus from you not having control and instead putting your trust in  God to take care of the issues.
