BIBLE CORRESPONDENCE COURSE
THIS present examination is given to help you continue to BETTER UNDERSTAND your Bible.
You are once again reading the ten-page QUESTION SECTION. It CONTAINS the INSTRUCTIONS and the QUESTIONS you will be asked. Note that there are 79 questions and that they are numbered consecutively 1, 2, 3 etc. Note also that there are FOUR possible answers given under EACH question. These are labeled A, B, C, D. ONLY ONE OF THESE FOUR POSSIBLE ANSWERS IS THE RIGHT ONE! -- the other three are false UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE.
YOU ARE TO SELECT THE ONE RIGHT ANSWER FROM AMONG THESE FOUR POSSIBLE ANSWERS.
You are to repeat this process for each of the questions asked. This comprises your test. (Generally speaking, the INCORRECT answers are FALSE ideas which are taught and believed about the subject.)
As you select the ONE right answer to each question, you must MARK THE ANSWER, which you selected, ON the enclosed ANSWER CARD which accompanies this Question Section. You are to SEND ONLY THE ANSWER CARD in to us when filled out.
Handle your answer card carefully at all times. A SMOOTH CARD aids us in grading.
GRADES: Our objective is to give all who have determination to know God's Word the opportunity to understand the TRUE meaning of the Bible.
We need to know if you have this BURNING DESIRE! If, by the answers you give to our examination questions, you show that you have this desire and are doing your best, that is all we want to know. We are here to aid just such people and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to do so.
The final judge as to whether you KNOW your Bible and are LIVING by it will be God Himself. HE IS THE ONE YOU HAD BETTER SEEK TO PLEASE -- NOT US. It is HE who is able to give you eternal life.
Your eagerness to continue your study and to utilize every opportunity is what really counts. The exact grade you make is not too important to you or to us. Naturally, however, we expect a somewhat high percentage of correct answers from you. YOUR ANSWER CARD WILL BE GIVEN AN EXACT GRADE -- 95% or 89% or whatever it may be. IT WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU.
Those who do not send in answers to the tests, or those who show by a very low number of correct answers that they are not particularly interested, will naturally be dropped, from the Course.
Answer as many questions as you can without referring to the previous lessons you have studied. If you find any difficult questions, then REFER TO THE LESSONS. We expect you to do so!
Notice that these questions are divided into four parts -- corresponding to the last four lessons. We advise you not to cover more than one lesson at a sitting. Take sufficient time to understand each question.
Here are two EXAMPLES to SHOW YOU HOW TO ANSWER the questions:
Read the FIRST QUESTION of this test. The right answer to select this time is "C." Now look at your answer card -- observe the "X" in the square TO THE RIGHT of Question 1, and UNDER C. It is already correctly marked for you!
Here is the second example: Notice question number 2 on the next page. The correct answer is "B." Answer "B" is marked correctly for you! That is all there is to it! It is very simple and fast. The procedure for the other questions is the same. Now continue with question 3 in the same manner ...
