Hey again, quiz takers! April 1 is the perfect day for the final part of our Church history quiz, don’t you think? I will keep the introductory chatter short to briefly explain the rules. If you still have not taken Quiz, pt. 2, be sure to take it tonight!
Also, in this part of the quiz, for anyone willing to take it cold turkey, you can subtract 5 points for every question missed from 120 instead of 100. Then, for those who want to take the quiz with a little internet help, you can begin at 90 instead of 75 and subtract 5 for every wrong answer. You can thank your benevolent quiz giver! :) I will post the answers in the first comment just like before. Remember, we are giving away a free copy of The Gospel for Real Life by Jerry Bridges to the winner!
Lastly, if you don’t remember, there are three levels of difficulty to choose from:
- Cold Turkey – Take the quiz without any help at all, (help = books, Google, or any other internet aid).
- Easy, but annoying – Take the quiz with help (e.g. internet, Google, Wikipedia, books, etc.). If you choose this option, you will need to subtract 10 points from your final score. Don’t make it too easy! Try to finish the quiz in 15 minutes.
- Lazy cheater mode – Skip the quiz and look at the answers.
