We are conducting this Bible-based quiz to encourage one and all to absorb God’s word because we recognize that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16
We want to encourage people to study with the attitude of treasuring God’s word in their hearts and not merely in their minds so that they live righteously before God. “Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.” Psalm 119:11
We also want to encourage all participants to embark on their preparation for the quiz prayerfully asking God to shine light on their lives and their understanding of God.
