Question 1:   2Peter 3:9 "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." What does this verse mean?
God is going to make all people repent.
I have no idea what the verse means.
All the people God chooses will repent.
God wants all people to repent, but He's not going to make it happen.

Question 2:   Do you read books by Charles Spurgeon or Arthur Pink, or have you read any of Tony Warren's articles?
Who's Tony Warren?
Hate them.
Never read them.
Love them.

Question 3:   Who is going to heaven?
I don't think about who's going to heaven, I'm just relieved that I'm going.
Whoever wants to.
Whoever God wants to.

Question 4:   Prayer of Jabez?
Jabez? (Flipping through Bible.) I don't see that anywhere!
I've heard of it. Interesting concept.
The teaching is false and the books suck. Nothing against Jabez . . .
I have the books and pray the prayer.

(Gasp!) The P word!
Oh yeah baby, say it again!
What's to predestinate? Everyone's gonna be saved.

Question 6:   Are Christian bookstores really Christian anymore?
No, many "Christian" bookstores peddle heresy and manmade doctrines.
I don't think it really matters whether or not a store IS Christian. It at least SAYS it's Christian and that's good enough for me.
Are you insinuating that Family Christian Store is NOT Christian? How dare you! Don't you know that the entire Left Behind Series sells there? If that doesn't say "Christian" then I don't know what does.
Well what's the difference between Christian stores and non-Christian stores anyway?

Question 7:   God loves . . .
Everybody, and they all will love Him back.
(singing)"Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so . . ."
Those He chose from the foundation of the world.

Question 8:   Romans 8:30 "Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified." Care to explain this verse?
That's easy. God called and predestinated (yeah, the P word!) the people He is going to justify. In other words, those He chooses, He saves!
Er, those he predestinated, he called and those he called, he justified and those he justified--- oh, I don't know what it means!
Hey, that's not fair! You're using KJV. Show me the verse in the NRSV and maybe I'll be able to explain it to you.
Well ah, well ah, um, ahem, ahem, well ah--- look, a comet!

Question 9:   The word Calvinism makes you . . .
shudder with horror or snort with disgust.
Grin mischievously and say the P word.
"Umm, why am I suddenly thinking of John Calvin?"
squirm uncomfortably.

Question 10:   Christmas and Easter are . . .
Pagan holidays.
Christian holidays . . . right? Last I knew they were!
Times to remember the coming of our Savior.
Warm, festive celebrations, times for world peace and joy.

Question 11:   On Halloween you . . .
Lock all the doors and windows and rock back and forth furiously in a chair telling Satan to "bite the dust!"
Go trick-or-treating . . . in costume . . . c'mon, it's harmless fun!
Have an ordinary day. Your fun comes tomorrow when all the candy goes on sale. Hoo-ya!
Stay home but keep the lights on and give out Testamints with little Chick Tracts attached to them.

Be kind to people, be kind to animals, enjoy life, love the world.
Go to church, keep out of mischief, read your Bible and try not to offend anyone.

My KJV Bible, all of Calvin's commentaries and my R.C Sproul tapes.
My Bible (any version,) my hymnal and my cross necklace.

Question 15:   You have a friend who's not saved. What do you do?
Tell him he has to kneel down, repeat a prayer after you and "accept Jesus."
Tell him about Jesus, read him the Bible until he covers his ears, sing praise songs around him, drop Chick Tracks on his doorstep, invite him to church, make him sit down and watch a scary apocalyptic movie, take him to a Billy Graham crusade and tell him to go to the front.
Share the gospel with him using scripture and pray that God will open his heart to the truth.
Make him feel as comfortable as possible around you; you don't want him to feel bad for what he's done wrong.
