How Well do YOU Know Your Bible?

Get out your KJV and tell me where these words are found:

Righteous indignation
Moderation in all things
God helps those who help themselves
Money is the root of all evil
Cleanliness is next to Godliness
God works in mysterious ways
Spare the rod, spoil the child
Cast your bread upon the waters
Seasons will cease to change
Eve ate the apple
Three wise men
Mary Magdalene, the prostitute
The Book of Revelations

The truth is, none of these words are found in the Bible. They are either totally false, or they are a description or reference to a truth that is found in Scripture. I’d be interested to see if any of you readers can think of any more.

Way to go, Daddio. I had forgotten that one. I know there's more.

Oh = here's a really stupid one that I heard growing up by some of the old timers in the neighborhood...

The mark of Cain was black skin.

Believe it or not, I actually heard that one. The old coots were about as Christian as Osama bin Laden and probably knew even less of the Bible. Using the Bible to promote racism. But then, you know where I stand on that subject.

King James, New testament,
Timothy 1, Chapter 6, verse 10:

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Most people leave off the "for the love of".
