A lady 
			looks puzzled as she ponders these two questions. Do you know what you believe? Do you believe what you 
			know?

Have you ever played a game called "TWENTY-NINE QUESTIONS?" The following is a very simple exercise that can help you to focus upon those things that are your true conviction. This implementation of the Scripture to some may seem rather childish. However it was Jesus who said, "Except you convert and become as a little child, you will not enter the Kingdom." (Mt. 18:3; 2Ti. 3:16-17)

The simplicity of what one truly believes is so very often clouded by the religious concepts and traditional teaching of men, causing some to lose sight of the unveiled reality of Christ. Thus it becomes necessary to ask oneself, "What do I REALLY believe?"

INSTRUCTIONS: Read the following questions and answer Yes or No. Then give the reason for your answer with biblical references in 50 words or less.
