Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride." Bible or not?

Answer: Bible

This is from Ecclesiastes 7:8.

Ecclesiastes is a book of the Old Testament. Its writer describes himself as descended from a "king in Jerusalem" and uses an autobiographical format to expound on the meaning of a well-lived life. The quoted passage is not only a caution against rash action or premature judgment, but a reminder that one's good name takes a lifetime to create and maintain.
2. "And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater." Bible or Not?

Answer: Not

This is from J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Fellowship of the Ring," Book 2, Chapter VI.

The passage in question is spoken by Haldir, a Silvan Elf who guides the Fellowship through the Lothlorien Forest on their way to the city of Caras Galadhon. Although he is not seen again in the Tolkien book after guiding the party, Haldir plays more of a role in the film version, where, after his service as guide, he leads a company of elves and is killed in the Battle of Helm's Deep.
3. "We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God." Bible or Not?

Answer: Not

This is from Reverend Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899).

Moody was an American preacher and publisher who founded several churches and established the Northfield and Mount Hermon Schools in Massachusetts and the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Considered the greatest evangelist of the nineteenth century, Moody preached at battlefields throughout the U.S. Civil War and conducted and supported evangelism elsewhere in the United States, and in Great Britain, Scandinavia, and China.
4. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Bible or Not?

Answer: Bible

This is from Luke 12:34.

Luke is one of the four Gospels of the New Testament; and it focuses on the biography and teachings of Jesus. The quoted passage is part of a long prescription for entry into Heaven. It follows on the heels of the exhortation to "sell your possessions and give to the poor." Beyond a mere requirement for material poverty and charity, the passage is meant as a warning about the dangers of trying to serve two masters: a righteous person cannot be concerned about both the things of the world and the things of the spirit.
5. "God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform." Bible or Not?

Answer: Not

This is from William Cowper (1731-1800).

Cowper was an English poet and hymn composer who was a forerunner of the Romantic Poets. Wordsworth and Coleridge were ardent admirers. Institutionalized for suicidal insanity in his thirties, Cowper embraced Christian evangelism during his recovery and composed dozens of hymns. The famous quoted line appears in his "Light Shining Out of Darkness."
6. "The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going." Bible or Not?

Answer: Bible

This is from John 3:8.

John is a canonical gospel of the New Testament, which tells of the preaching of Jesus. The quoted passage is from these teachings on the subject of the Holy Spirit, which Jesus compares to the wind: we cannot see it, where it originates, or where it is going; but we can see its effects. When believers are reborn and imbued with the Holy Spirit, the passage says, the effects can be seen.
7. "If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand." Bible or Not?

Answer: Bible

This is from Mark 3:25.

Mark is both a canonical and synoptic gospel of the New Testament, meaning that it is both an authoritative text and interrelated to the gospels Matthew and Luke. It is an account of the teaching of the adult Jesus. The quoted passage comes as Jesus has driven a demon from a blind, mute man and is accused by Pharisees of using the power of Satan to do so. Jesus counters that Satan would not cast himself out, as that would split, and thus destroy, his kingdom. No, it was the superior power of the Lord which had conquered the demon.

Perhaps the most famous secular use of this quotation was made by Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), the 16th U.S. President, in an 1858 speech accepting the Illinois Republican Party's nomination to run for the U.S. Senate. He was referring to the division of the United States into free and slave-holding states. Along with his Gettysburg and Second Inaugural Addresses, the "House Divided" Address became one of the most famous speeches of Lincoln's career. However, Lincoln's was not the only use made of the phrase. It was used as far back as 1651 by Thomas Hobbes in "Leviathan"; in 1776 by Thomas Paine in "Common Sense"; and in a letter by Abigail Adams in 1812, to name only a few other instances.
8. "This above all: to thine own self be true; And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man." Bible or Not?

Answer: Not

This is from William Shakespeare (1564-1616) "Hamlet," Act 1, Scene 3.

In this passage Polonius, the Lord Chamberlain and father of Laertes and Ophelia, known for his verbose, tedious, and ultimately destructive meddling, is giving some advice to his son as Laertes is about to depart for Paris to resume his studies. Polonius had entered into a secret agreement with Claudius, Hamlet's despised uncle/stepfather, to spy on Hamlet. Later, as he lurks behind a curtain, Polonius is fatally stabbed by Hamlet, who mistakes him for Claudius.
9. "Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited." Bible or Not?

Answer: Bible

This is from Romans 12:16.

Romans is written in letter, or epistolary, format and attributed to the Apostle Paul. It is the longest of thirteen such books in the New Testament, and is considered the most significant of the Pauline epistles. The quoted passage is not just a plea for humility and against pride. It is an exhortation to respect one another as equal in loving God and with an equal expectation of salvation. The stricture to "associate with people of low position" applies not only to people of lower social or economic status but to those with a less-developed life in the Spirit.
10. "Heed the Word of the Lord, or the dead will rise again possessed by demons, and ye who are unclean shall be damned forever and ever in eternal fire" Bible or Not?

Answer: Not

This is from John A. Russo (1939- ) "Night of the Living Dead - 30th Anniversary Edition" (1999); a revised version the 1968 film classic originally directed by George A. Romero (1940- ).

This line is spoken by Reverend John Hicks as a warning against future attacks by the undead if the faithful stray from a righteous path. Although hated by critics - who generally regarded the 1968 version of "....Living Dead" as a breakthrough horror classic - the "30th Anniversary Edition" was accepted, if not enthusiastically embraced, by George Romero. The quoted passage from the 1999 film is among an assortment of scenes added to the 1968 original by Russo, who was a screenwriter on the 1968 film.
