More on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”

By Steve Willis

In a previous article I had a few ideas prompted by the ABC TV show “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” I hope you read it. In this I was thinking about some of the questions on that show and wondered how far we might go if all were Bible-related questions. I’ll use dollar amounts only to indicate possible difficulty, but no money prize is given (and beware of greed). However, what you know and what you do with what you know may affect the “prize” you receive from the Father in Heaven (see 1 Cor. 9:24-27). Do them as best you can from memory and in as short a period of time as possible. You can have one each of these three “life lines”: (1) check your Bible; (2) ask a friend in the family; (3) ask someone who attends where you do! They must answer from memory, and not look it up. NOTE: I used the NASB to prepare these questions. “Walk away” when you must, but at least try the other questions. How much did you “win”?

$1,000: Which is NOT a son of Adam and Eve: A. Enosh, B. Abel, C. Cain, D. Seth? 

$2,000: From the “Beatitudes” in the Sermon on the Mount, who “shall see God”: A. the poor in spirit, B. the peacemakers, C. the pure in heart, D. those who mourn?
