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)
It’s a helper. There is no such word as a helpmeet. So a lot of people say that a woman is a helpmeet, but a woman is a helper or someone to complete him. But that’s not a compound word. A helper meet for you: so a helper who is appropriate or satisfactory or to complete him. But it’s not just a helper. Meet means to fill a particular spot. Correct
“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)
I think in the context it was confronting the legalism of Judaism. There were some extensions of the law. I would guess it means meat, food, certain kinds of meat. I think it had to do with getting out of the legalism, it was a point of separation. Then when the Gospel was opened to the Gentiles, Peter saw the sheet coming down from heaven. The purpose of it all was to expand the Gospel. I think meats is literal. Incorrect
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)
Well, I’ve never thought of it being a trick question, so I mean study means to study. To apply some work into understanding. You study so you can understand. You’re supposed to be studying the Word of God to get a grasp on the meaning. 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)
To stop, to waver. In an army base if you’re wandering around the front gate, they’ll tell you to halt, which means to stop. waver would be a little weaker. Incorrect
“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
(1 Corinthians 15:19)
It doesn’t seem like it’s a hard word. In a grievous position. We would be in an unhappy state of affairs. Incorrect
Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.”
(Proverbs 22:28)
It means to cheat. It means to steal something that is an absolute. Landmark was put there for a reason and to remove a landmark for unsavory reasons would be for the purpose of stealing an absolute. Unclear
“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)
It is a connector to connect the first part to the second part to produce an extension of the first part. To produce the second part. 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)
That’s when they took up an offering to give it to him; to pass on what they had to someone else. When you communicate verbally, you’re passing on what you have to someone else. It’s a bigger term than talking. I think it’s pretty obvious they were talking about when they were dealing with passing on the offering down the line. 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)
Later on. Incorrect
“These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.”
(John 16:1)
To be brought into a situation of regret or to be put on the defense. In this case, I don’t think it just means to call someone names and to make him feel bad. It was deeper than that. It had to do with regret for the position they were in or had been exposed to. It’s almost to the place where it would cause regret. It’s more than some woman in church looking at a woman across the aisle and scowling because she has the same dress. Incorrect
Totals Correct: 2
