Modern Pharisee Quiz

There are many people who treat Christianity like a set of rules or list of do's and don'ts. There are others who treat it like a set of rituals. Then there are those who really understand the grace that Christ taught, because they have studied him and what he taught more than men and what they taught. This simple test will give you a hint as to how much of a modern Pharisee you may be or indeed how much of Christian grace you understand.

Are you a Pharisee or a grace-filled Christian? What is a Christian Pharisee? Is that an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms? Are you one? If so, this simple little test may give you a few hints. If you really understand Christ's teachings, then perhaps you will score much higher. What a relief that will be. But, if you think that makes you better than others, then guess what? You fail, because that also makes you a Pharisee. Enjoy...
