I can see so-called Christians having or even stumbling through questions two, three and four. But, the fact that it's a virtual coin toss with question number uno is disturbing. Isn't that question right up there with who was our first president? Yikes, time to repent people.

This is a sad testimony of so-called Christians. Ignorance is truly bliss. Repent indeed.
