Last week I shared some answers that children gave to a Bible test. We saw some humorous insights into the way children see the Bible, such as the child who called the epistles the “wives of the apostles” and called Joan of ark “Noah’s wife.”
Here is part two, again published exactly as it was written by the children, including spelling errors:
1. Solomon, one of Davids sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.
2. Samson slayed the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles.
3. The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple.
4. The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert, Afterwards, Moses went up to Mount Cyanide to get the ten ammendments.
5. Moses died before he ever reached Canada Then Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol.
6. Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do unto others before they do one to you. He also explained, a man doth not live by sweat alone.
7. David was a Hebrew king who was skilled at playing the liar. He fought the Finkelsteins, a race of people who lived in biblical times.
Did you notice how frequently the subject of battles came up? While it isn’t the “Battle of Geritol,” every believer has a battle to fight. Satan is always on the prowl, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8), which is why we need to take up the armor of God, including “the shield of faith” to “extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one” (Ephesians 6:16, HCSB). That’s even more powerful than the “Axe of the Apostles!”
