Bible Drill

I can remember back in the day when church was a weekend long event. Saturday we had Usher Board meeting, choir rehearsal, BTU (Baptist Training Union), which included the infamous Bible Drill. Sunday we had Sunday School, Morning Worship Service, we had lunch in in the Church Dining Hall and went back for Afternoon Service or Pastors Anniversary, or some other acknowledgement service. We went home for dinner and came back for the Evening Service.

At 7 and 8 years old this was not exactly our idea of weekend fun. My cousin and I would always try to sneak off to the corner store to buy candy and would inevitably get busted. Our aunt would catch us on our way back in, and re-introduce us to the "switch".

By the grace of God, all of that church training, bible drills and such stuck. A friend sent me this on line Bible Drill, and I was amazed at how many times I answered 10 of 10 or 8 of 10 questions correctly. Each time you answer 10 questions, it will give you your score, and the opportunity to answer 10 more questions. It's pretty cool, check it out! Just click on the Bible Drill heading above, and let the games begin.

Girl, I know EXACTLY what you mean about church...that was me! And, of course, we had a corner store that we'd sneak off to also! I decided that I'd catch up on blog reading this Sunday evening...but instead, I'm engrossed by the bible site you linked to. I've saved it in my favorites 'cause I absolutely love it and God! Thanks for the blessing.

BTU...Wow you really brought me back to my roots. While I am now Seventh-day Adventist I certainly appreciate those BTU days as a youth in the Baptist church. My father is a Baptist Minister so I still get my Baptist on!

Blaq - I just love that bible drill. My son and I have been on it for a few weeks now. I'm glad you enjoyed it as well. Thank you for stopping by!

Creyole - Everything I learned in church as a youth I learned in BTU. When I received it, it took me back as well, that's why I had to post it. Thank you for the affirmation.
