    C.S.

He saw Christianity as the one true story of the world, differentiating it from other myths or metaphorical stories.

Therefore, the correct answer is that Christianity is the one story of the world that actually happened.

    General revelation refers to the knowledge of God that is available to all people through nature and the created order. It is a form of revelation that can be discerned through observation and reason, rather than through specific religious texts or personal experiences. The question "Does God exist?" can be answered through general revelation because it is a question that can be explored and understood through observing the natural world and reflecting on the evidence of design and purpose in the universe.

    Islam accepts all of the following EXCEPT what?

    • A.

      Monotheism

    • B.

      Moral absolutes

    • C.

      The Trinity

    • D.

      The existence of Jesus

    • E.

      Jesus as a prophet

    Correct Answer
    C. The Trinity
    Explanation
    Islam accepts monotheism, moral absolutes, the existence of Jesus, and Jesus as a prophet. However, it does not accept the concept of the Trinity, which is central to Christian belief and states that God is three persons in one: the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. Islamic belief emphasizes the oneness of God and rejects the idea of multiple persons within the divine being.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    God is __________________ (beyond and separate from the world) but also immanent (in the world).

    Correct Answer
    transcendent
    Explanation
    The term "transcendent" refers to the belief that God exists beyond and separate from the world. This means that God is not limited or confined by the physical universe and is instead above and beyond it. However, the term "transcendent" also acknowledges that God is immanent, meaning that God is present and active within the world. This suggests that while God is separate from the world, God is still involved in the affairs of the world and can be experienced or encountered within it.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    God's revelation of himself to all people through creation is referred to as _______________ revelation.

    Correct Answer
    general
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "general." This refers to the idea that God reveals himself to all people through his creation, regardless of their religious beliefs or background. This revelation is not limited to a specific group or individual, but is accessible to everyone. It highlights the universal nature of God's communication with humanity through the natural world.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    1 Peter 3:15 says, "but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a ____________ to anyone who asks you fro a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect."

    Correct Answer
    defense
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "defense." This is because the verse from 1 Peter 3:15 encourages believers to be prepared to provide a defense or reason for their hope in Christ when asked by others. It emphasizes the importance of being able to articulate and explain one's faith with gentleness and respect.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The existence of mankind suggests that God is impersonal.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The existence of mankind does not necessarily suggest that God is impersonal. The belief in a personal or impersonal God is subjective and can vary from person to person. Some people may believe that the existence of mankind suggests a personal God who created and interacts with humans on a personal level. Others may believe that the existence of mankind suggests an impersonal God who set the laws of the universe in motion but does not intervene in human affairs. Therefore, the statement that the existence of mankind suggests God is impersonal is not necessarily true.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Because of sin, we no longer bear God's image.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. According to Christian theology, humans still bear God's image despite sin. The belief is that although sin has marred the image of God within us, it has not completely erased it. The concept of redemption and salvation is centered around restoring the image of God within individuals through forgiveness and transformation. Therefore, the statement that we no longer bear God's image because of sin is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Eternity is the escaping of the physical our home is in heaven, not earth.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because it suggests that eternity is the escaping of the physical and our home is in heaven, not on earth. However, there is no concrete evidence or universally accepted belief that supports this claim. Eternity refers to an infinite or endless existence, and beliefs about the afterlife and the concept of heaven vary across different religions and cultures. Therefore, it is incorrect to state that our home is in heaven and not on earth based on the concept of eternity.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Special revelation refers to God's making himself known through the Bible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Special revelation refers to the idea that God has revealed himself to humanity in a unique and specific way, primarily through the Bible. This means that the Bible is seen as a direct communication from God, containing his divine message and teachings. True means that the statement accurately describes special revelation as God's way of making himself known through the Bible.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Once we embrace our own divinity, we gain power through the Holy Spirit to adhere to God's moral order.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that by embracing our own divinity, we gain power through the Holy Spirit to adhere to God's moral order. However, this contradicts traditional Christian beliefs which emphasize that power and adherence to God's moral order come from a relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ, rather than from embracing our own divinity. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    One divine purpose of general revelation is to remove people's excuses for not believing in God.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    General revelation refers to the knowledge of God that is available to all people through the natural world and human conscience. One of the purposes of general revelation is to provide evidence of God's existence and attributes, so that people cannot claim ignorance or lack of evidence as an excuse for not believing in God. By revealing Himself through creation and the moral law written on human hearts, God removes any valid excuse for rejecting Him. Therefore, the statement that one divine purpose of general revelation is to remove people's excuses for not believing in God is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the Bible goes beyond being just a religious book and serves as a comprehensive account of universal history. It implies that the Bible provides explanations, narratives, and teachings that encompass the entire history of humanity, not just religious aspects. This perspective highlights the Bible's significance and relevance beyond religious beliefs, making the statement true.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that the majority of Muslims are radicals is false. It is important to avoid generalizations and stereotypes about any religious or ethnic group.

It is crucial to recognize and respect the diversity within any religious community.

      Heavy taxation of Christian and Jews living in Muslim lands

    Shari'ah law is a legal system based on Islamic principles and teachings. It is designed to promote justice, fairness, and the well-being of individuals and society. Child sacrifice, which involves the intentional killing of children as a religious ritual, is not a practice that is included or endorsed in Shari'ah law.
