    Enoch walked with God and then....?

    • A.

      He died

    • B.

      "was no more"

    • C.

      Turned away from the Lord

    Correct Answer
    B. "was no more"
    Explanation
    The phrase "was no more" implies that Enoch ceased to exist or was taken away by God. This suggests that Enoch did not experience physical death like most humans, but instead had a unique fate of being directly taken into God's presence. This is supported by the biblical account in Genesis 5:24, which states that "Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away."

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that Moses was stolen by an Egyptian Princess and forced to be her son. However, this statement is not true. According to the biblical account, Moses was actually found by an Egyptian Princess in a basket floating in the Nile River, but she did not steal him. She adopted him as her own son and raised him in the palace. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Correct Answer
    C. Saul
    Explanation
    Saul was the first king of Israel. He was anointed by the prophet Samuel and ruled for approximately 40 years. However, Saul's reign was marked by disobedience to God, which ultimately led to his downfall. Despite his initial success in battles against Israel's enemies, Saul's disobedience and lack of faith caused God to reject him as king.
