This first quiz is designed to take you through the basics. It can easily be used to audit a church or pastor’s beliefs compared to Scripture.
Confirmation bias, also called confirmatory bias or myside bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one’s beliefs or hypotheses, while giving disproportionately less consideration to alternative possibilities.It is a type of cognitive bias and a systematic error of inductive reasoning. People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively, or when they interpret it in a biased way. The effect is stronger for emotionally charged issues and for deeply entrenched beliefs. People also tend to interpret ambiguous evidence as supporting their existing position. Biased search, interpretation and memory have been invoked to explain attitude polarization (when a disagreement becomes more extreme even though the different parties are exposed to the same evidence), belief perseverance (when beliefs persist after the evidence for them is shown to be false), the irrational primacy effect (a greater reliance on information encountered early in a series) and illusory correlation (when people falsely perceive an association between two events or situations).
Every church in America claims to be a “Bible-believing” church, yet there are over 40 thousand denominations of “christianity”. Many say the differences exist because of “interpretations” of Scripture. But that’s not the case. The common denominator amongst all 40 thousand denominations is that they have pastors and teachers who don’t read the original language and don’t understand the front of the book. Because they don’t understand the front of the book, they are all confused about the back of the book. And many of them ignore clear scriptures in the back of the book because it points out the denominational lies that they hold to be true. So in the spirit of ignoring all the doctrines of men and denominations, these quizzes are designed to focus STRICTLY on Scripture as the answer to the questions. Choose your quiz below:
