False Friends

Verse Your Answer Correct/Incorrect
“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”
(Genesis 2:18)
Somebody to assist, to be an assistant to him, to meet his needs. She was designed to complete who he was. Incorrect
“Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”
(1 Timothy 4:3)
That was a warning to people not to do that, as I remember. He says in the last days there are some teachings that will arise. These are some of the logistics that will be given in the last days indicating apostasy.

I presume it’s literally a commandment about what you can and cannot eat; not just meats but food in general. Paul says that if eating meat causes a brother to stumble, he would not eat meat. This is not an indicator of salvation, it’s a sign that in the last days people will be told what they can and can’t eat. It’s just something that’s portrayed as legalistic.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
(2 Timothy 2:15)
I think it would mean applying yourself to what you need to. I don’t think it’s just a casual reading to do this. I think study is one of those words that study means study. Apply yourself; don’t just take a surface definition. Get in and understand what all it could mean. That means you take the Bible and dig into it. Incorrect
“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
(1 Kings 18:21)
The people wouldn’t make up their minds, so they were stuck. I think the idea is that they were stuck between good and bad, making a decision for God but not doing it. It is kind of like the old tug-of-war: there was a dilemma for them. Elijah says you’re stalled between the two opinions. Incorrect
“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
(1 Corinthians 15:19)
That’s a resurrection chapter. If there were no resurrection–if we just lived and died–we wouldn’t have a lot to live for. In other words, we’re miserable. He’s trying to express hope. When someone dies and you do a funeral, there’s nothing you can say to give anybody peace in what they’re going through for the loss that’s there. If I tell someone there’s no life after death, there’s no hope in the Bible, God, resurrection, etc. Consequently, we would be miserable. If I said there’s no heaven, that’s emptiness. Incorrect
Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.”
(Proverbs 22:28)
To change the boundaries. If you went out and moved your neighbor’s stake to some other place, you’re stealing from him or cheating. It’s dishonest gain. Correct
“Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me.”
(1 Kings 8:25)
When he says, “”There shall not fail,”” that’s a promise that David’s throne would be established. Because of the leadership that was there (on David’s throne), the people would have leadership and guidance and a fulfillment of God’s promise Incorrect
“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.”
(Philippians 4:15)
The idea is that they served him, that they supported him, that they underwrote his ministry in that sense. I think he was complimenting the church at Philippi because they were the ones who were his greatest supporters. Correct
“Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.”
(Matthew 13:21)
I think it speaks about “”after some time””. I get the idea that it’s speaking of the passage of time. Incorrect
“These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.”
(John 16:1)
I would imagine it speaks about being troubled; that you should not be troubled. Obviously this is a passage in which Jesus announces that He would be taken away from them, that they were going to have to go on without him, and that they would be troubled by his absence. In chapters 13-17 he is preparing his disciples for his absence after he’s crucified. He was trying to encourage them not offend them. He said “”You will be put out of the synagogues, but that shouldn’t be an offense to you””. Acts says that they counted it all joy to suffer for him. Incorrect
Totals Correct: 3
Incorrect: 7
