Religion Mixture Trivia Questions

1. In which European city did the Popes reside during the "Babylonian Captivity" (1305-1378 CE)?

From Quiz
FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 15

Answer: Avignon

Avignon is located in Provence in southeastern France. Avignon would remain under papal control until the late 1700s. The influence of the kings of France led to selection of French clergy to the papacy during the Captivity. This is distinct from the Babylonian Captivity of the 6th century BCE, when a significant number of people from the Kingdom of Judah were held captive in Babylon, capital of the Neo-Babylonian Empire.

Question by player bernie73

2. What is referred to in the King James Bible as the "Salt Sea"?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 14

Answer: The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is actually a salt lake which is bordered by Israel and Palestine on the west and Jordan on the East. At 423 metres below sea level, it is Earth's lowest elevation on land. Its hypersalinity makes it impossible for animal life to exist, earning it its name. The Dead Sea supplies a great many products, from salt and minerals used to create cosmetics and herbal sachets to potash for fertilizers to balms used by the Egyptians in the mummification process.

Question by player LBaggins

3. Derived from the Quran and the rulings of Islamic scholars, what name is given to Islam's legal system?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 13

Answer: Sharia

In the Islamic tradition, Sharia (also Sharia law) is religious law. The Quran (Islam's central religious text) and fatwas (legal opinions of Islamic scholars) form the basis of Sharia law. The literal meaning of Sharia is "the clear, well-trodden path to water", a metaphor for "the pathway to be followed", stressing the importance of water in desert environments. Of the other answers, the Hajj is a pilgrimage to Mecca, or a pilgrim who has completed the Hajj; Ramadan is a month of fasting in the Islamic calendar; Astaghfirulah (alternatively "Aghfir Allah") is an Islamic expression: "I seek forgiveness from God" or "I ask Allah for forgiveness".

Question by player psnz

4. Which Bible book (KJV) states, "And He gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon"?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 12

Answer: Revelation

Armageddon has come to mean apocalypse, but the Bible states that it is the location of the final battle between good and evil. Revelation 16:16 features the quote.

Question by player zorlock7

5. Jesus says, in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:24), "You cannot serve both God and Mammon". Who or what is Mammon?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 11

Answer: personification of greed for wealth

Mammon is understood in the New Testament to refer to wealth and is often used to describe the lust for greater wealth, acquisitiveness and greed. "Mamona" is a Latin word for wealth. Later sources identify Mammon as an evil demon, perhaps one of the seven princes of Hell, perhaps a personification of Beelzebub. Peter Lombard calls Mammon "a devil". A spirit of personal greed has been described as Mammonism since the 19th century. This verse harmonizes with Jesus' earlier words in the Sermon on the Mount according to Matthew 6:21 "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" and with Saint Paul's observation in I Timothy 6:10 that "the love of money is the root of all evil". Question by player FatherSteve

6. An American minister became well known by preaching to millions of people through his televised Evangelical Crusades in stadiums around the world. Who is this minister, who has also been called "Pastor to the Presidents"?

Answer: Billy Graham

A Southern Baptist minister from North Carolina, Billy Graham has had audience with every sitting US President from Harry S Truman to Barack Obama, earning him other nicknames such as America's Pastor and The Protestant's Pope. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has been active since 1949, now headed by Billy's son, Franklin.

7. What punishment from God befell Lot's wife in the Old Testament of the Bible because she disobeyed instructions not to look behind her as she ran from her home?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 8

Answer: She was turned to a pillar of salt.

The story is in chapter 19 of the Book of Genesis. There is a structure of porous sandstone roughly in the shape of a shrouded female that is located near the area referred to in the story. It is known as "Lot's Wife" by locals.

Question by player WorldBook14

9. Especially appropriate to Ash Wednesday, what is a "memento mori" in a Christian context?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 5

Answer: a reminder of one's mortality

The Latin aphorism "memento mori" can be translated "Remember that you will die!" It has been used by others but is particularly common as a theme in Christianity. On Ash Wednesday, when ashes are smudged on the foreheads of the penitent, the common words of administration are "Remember that thou art dust and to dust thou shalt return." This sentence is itself a "memento mori", as are the many works of Christian art depicting skulls, skeletons, the Dance of Death, flowers losing their petals, hourglasses, and candles being snuffed. French composer Camille Saint-Saëns' orchestral tone poem "Danse Macabre" (Op. 40) is based on the Dance of Death. Biblical warrant for this emphasis is located in Ecclesiasticus 7:40 "In all thy works remember thy last end, and thou shalt never sin" (Douay-Rheims Bible).

Question by player FatherSteve

10. According to Genesis 41:30, for how many years was there a famine in Egypt and the surrounding countries?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 4

Answer: Seven

Pharaoh's dream showed seven healthy fat cows coming out of the river and starting to graze. Then seven sick skinny cows came out of the river and ate the fat cows without changing at all; then Pharaoh woke up. The interpretation was that the seven fat cows represented seven good years and the seven skinny cows were seven years of famine for Egypt, following the seven good years. Question by player j-zilch

11. What is pastafarianism, a social movement that takes a lighthearted view on religion, otherwise known as?

From Quiz FunTrivia Religion Mix: Vol 3

Answer: Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster

In 2005, an Oregon State University graduate named Bobby Henderson wrote a letter to the Kansas State Board of Education challenging the inclusion of the instruction of intelligent design in classroom. His satirical letter argued that the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster was just as valid as intelligent design and asked that it be included in the curriculum. Henderson did not receive a reply from the Board of Education so he posted his letter on his website and it started to get all kinds of attention and became an Internet phenomenon. The attention has included death threats and hate mail for his alleged anti-religious views.

From Quiz The World's Religions

Answer: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

Many scholars of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity agree that the same God is being worshipped among them but that He is worshipped differently in each religion. Jesus, who is the fundamental person in Christianity, was raised a Jew. Jesus Christ was considered the Son of God by Christians not Jews. Muslims also are divided on the belief that Christ was the Son of God. Abraham, a key person in Jewish and Christian heritage, had two sons Isaac and Ishmael. Ishmael's descendants began the worship of God with the key person being Muhammad who they believe was a prophet sent from God. Thus Isaac and Ishmael link the three religions to all be serving the same God but in different ways.
