I love quizzes that spark discussion and get you to thinking. I have a few regular blogs that I read, one of them being Girl on the Move; I recently read a post there entitled “Would You Rather: Travel Edition“. While reading it, thinking about what my answers would be, I thought “Hey, let’s do a Would You Rather: Bible Edition!” So, here goes…
Would you rather….
Have seen the Red Sea being parted, or Jesus walking on water?
I think it would be so awesome to see the Red Sea being parted, but nothing could ever compare to seeing Jesus in person.
Have your diet be manna and quail, or locusts and honey?
I love honey. I don’t eat meat. But, having eaten quail once in my life, and remembering it to have been very good, I would choose quail and manna. No way would I want to eat grasshoppers. I have always said that one of the first things I want to do when I get to Heaven is taste manna.
Be a prostitute but have helped the spies escape Jericho, or be a virgin that gives birth to Jesus and have your reputation ruined?
I would choose to be Rahab. As much of an honor as it would be to be chosen the mother of Jesus, I would never want to have to go through the pain that she went through watching her Son beaten and murdered. The prostitute who helped the spies escape is in the lineage of Jesus.
Spend one hour in Heaven, or one week with Jesus on earth?
One week with Jesus on earth, no doubt! One hour in Heaven would be amazing, but I’ll be spending eternity there. So, I would easily forgo the hour in Heaven to be able to spend a week with Jesus on earth. During that week, I would get preparation for the rest of my life here on earth. It would really stink to be in that glorious place for a week, and then have to come back to this place.
Deny Jesus three times, or betray Him for 30 pieces of silver?
Hmmmmm, definitely deny Jesus 3 times. To be honest, I’ve already done that. We deny Jesus so many times in our lives…. when we don’t do what he has asked us to do; when we are afraid to stand up for what is right; when we have a chance to share Him with others and we don’t; I could go on and on about that one. But I hope that I would never choose to betray Him for 30 pieces of silver.
Live on the ark with all the stinky animals, or be stuck in the belly of a large fish?
Inside the belly of a large fish….. ewwww no way! First of all, I’m claustrophobic; second, that’s so nasty; third, talk about lonely….. Of course, I’d be so sick of living on a boat surrounded by nothing but water for that long, but at least I’d have family to talk to, and when the family is on my nerves, I’d have the animals.
Have dinner with Moses, or Paul?
Definitely Paul! If I had dinner with Moses, it would likely be in a tent in the dry hot dessert. Dinner with Paul, on the other hand, might be by the sea, and might consist of bread, olives, and other really good stuff. But most of all, I would LOVE to hear Paul preach. Talk about a man on fire for God. He had such a radical awesome change, and such courage. At first, he was sold out to getting rid of all things Jesus. Then, when he MET Jesus, he was sold out for the rest of his life telling others about Jesus!
