douglas jacobyHow well do you know the Scriptures? Here is a great opportunities to find out. As the apostle Paul said, "Test yourselves" (2 Cor 13:5). Now I know I'm taking it out of context. He wasn't referring to Bible knowledge, but to an obedient walk with the Lord. Not to say there isn't a connection between the two.
