This test was designed to answer 2 basic questions:
Are you a good person according to God's standards?
If so, are you good enough to go to heaven?
NOTE: Some questions are scored as a group and others are scored separately. The questions may appear out of numerical order.
1. Have you ever told a lie?
YOUR SCORE ON QUESTION #1:
The Ninth of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not lie." Telling just one lie, according to God's standards, makes you a "liar." In Revelation 21:8, God says, "...all liars, shall have their part in the lake of fire..."
7. Have you ever looked at someone and had lustful thoughts?
YOUR SCORE ON QUESTION #7:
The Seventh of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not commit adultery." If you've ever looked at another person with lustful thoughts , according to God's standards, that makes you an "adulterer." Jesus said, "You have heard it said, You shall not commit adultery: But I say to you, that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart." (Matthew 5:27-28) In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, God says that no adulterers "...shall inherit the kingdom of God."
5. Have you ever used "God" "Jesus" "Christ" or "Lord" flippantly, or as a curse word or interjection? (Example: OMG or "Lordy, Lordy!")
YOUR SCORE ON QUESTION #5:
The Third of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain." If you've ever used the name "God," "Jesus," "Christ," or "Lord" in place of a curse word or as an interjection (brief exclamation), what you've done is take the name of the God who gave you life, and you've used it flippantly as if it were a "four-letter" filth word to express disgust. That offense is called "blasphemy," and according to God's standards, you are a "blasphemer." In Leviticus 24:16 , God says, "he that blasphemes the name of the LORD, shall surely be put to death..."
4. Have you ever stolen anything (no matter how small)?
YOUR SCORE ON QUESTION #4:
The Eighth of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not steal." Stealing just one thing (regardless of it's size or monetary value), according to God's standards, makes you a "thief." In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, God says, "No thieves... ...shall inherit the kingdom of God."
8. Have you ever broken the first Commandment?
YOUR SCORE ON QUESTION #8:
The First of the Ten Commandments is "You shall have no other gods before me." That means that we should love God with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength. The Bible tells us that no one has kept this commandment (see Psalm 14:2-3) -- if you said you had, you have also broken the 9th Commandment by lying.
2. Have you given money to charity?
3. Have you gone to church regularly?
6. Have you made it a practice to read the Bible regularly?
YOUR SCORE ON QUESTIONS #2, #3, and #6:
Giving money to charity, going to church, and reading the Bible are all good activities, but none of them impress God. The Bible says, "and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away." (Isaiah 64:6) That means, all our "righteous acts" or "good deeds" that questions 2, 3 and 6 referenced can never make up for the fact that we've broken God's Laws. Think of it this way. If a person was guilty of a serious crime... such as murder... but he gave money to charity, would that make up for his crime? No. The person's crime hasn't been paid for because he gave money to charity. This "good deed" will mean nothing to the judge when he passes sentence. The crime of murder must still be punished.
This test showed you how you stand up when judged by just five of God's Ten Commandments. So, if God judges you by this standard would you be INNOCENT or GUILTY of breaking His Commandments?
