THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE!!!
Last week, The Sisters of Mary took it like a man, or
should we say, woman and leapfrogged onto the finals.
But another semifinal will be set in a few weeks. To do
that, we must have 3 of 9 new teams. The first 3 consist
Team City Takers
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
Charity: City Takers, exists to transform the urban
and hip-hop culture with The Gospel of Jesus Christ
through outreach and discipleship
Team Members: Ronnie Rolon (freight handler); Scott
Free (director of outreach); and Tim Igidi
(security). These Christian rappers spread the word
of God to the hip-hop community through City Takers,
the organization founded by Scott Free, formerly a
mainstream hip-hop artist. Ronnie and Tim (who leads
the TABC team) grew up in rough circumstances but
found salvation through the Bible.
Hometown: Springtown, Weatherford,
and Grandbury, TX
Charity: Western Harvest Ministries, teaching life
skills to disadvantaged youth through rodeo sports
Team Members: (John) Kelly Clark (rodeo instructor);
Scott Mendes (former World Champion bull rider);
Jeff Copenhaver (roping instructor). After leaving
the sport of cattle-roping, Jeff founded the first
“cowboy church,” bringing the gospel to cowboys and
rodeo athletes. He, Scott, and Jeff are playing for
Scott’s Western Harvest Ministries, which uses rodeo
sports instruction to reach disadvantaged and
Women of Faith
Hometown: Grapevine, TX, Franklin,
TN, and Frisco, TX
Charity: A21 Campaign, which seeks to abolish
slavery in the 21st century
Team Members: Kari Jobe (singer); Lisa Harper
(author); Sheila Walsh (author/speaker). Kari, “the
Carrie Underwood of worship music,” Sheila, an
author and inspirational speaker originally from
rural Scotland, and Lisa, a Christian writer who
specializes in reaching women outside the typical
church bubble, have a passion for helping women all
over the world. They are playing for A21, an
If you notice, 1 team actually has a 3 christian celebrities, but it
does not matter. Everyone's playing for charity, so everyone is a star
here (C-Note: well put). The war is about to start, so....
LET THE CHALLENGE COMMENCE!!!!
Before we begin, the network would like to have a moment of silence
affected by those in the Boston Marathon.
Thanks, and with the crickets out of the way, we start off with....
BIBLICAL BUMPER STICKERS
To do that, we send in Trevor Bayne, the youngest winner of the
Daytona 500. See if you can spot these bumper stumpers for 10
points. Stick this first one in....
MY OTHER CAR IS A CHARIOT OF FIRE- Ezekiel, Elijah, Eli or
Kari takes the wheel with Elijah and gets 10 for that answer. Next
I WAS HERE- Noah, Josiah, Jonah or Pinocchio?
Although Kari rang in, Shelia takes the alley-oop with Jonah and
dunks it in with 10. Last sticker:
MY DONKEY IS SMARTER THAN YOUR DONKEY- Balak, Baal, Balaam
Kari sweeps it all with Balaam and after that round, the Women are
way out in front with 30. Not to worry, this biblical brainbender
can change all that:
Which event in the life of Jesus would you most want to have
been present at- The Nativity, The Crucifixion or The Resurrection?
Since Easter was 2 weeks ago, they went with the Resurrection and
everyone got it right. 25 for everyone! Moving on to:
THOU SHALT NOT EXHALE
Here's why: At the same time, all of the teams have 1:30 to
pick up an answer choice out of four for every statement by using a
straw & put it on their pedestal; only the teammate who gets there
first successfully w/ the right response will be credited w/ that
The choices you'll be dealing with are:
Job & Ringo
They have a minute and a half. Ready...set....BLOW,er GO!
1. Had a brother named James.
The Takers score with John. 1-0-0. Next....
2. Replaced Peter as drummer boy
Pete Best that is, and Kari takes the tie with Ringo.
3. Studied under Gamaliel
Paul is the one that give the Takers a 2 point score.
4. His first name's Richard.
Richard Starkey does belong to Ringo Starr and the Cowboys get on
In one bad day, lost his camels & his sheep were burned
The takers put the fire out with Job. Both them and the Women get
6. A lad born to Zebedee
The Women take the lead with John.
7. Hung out at the Cavern Club.
The women score a possible nail in the coffin with Ringo.
Said the line "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked
I will depart.
It was Job, but the clock expired. The Women increase their lead to
105. Okay Bronies, we move to....
MY FOUR LITTLE PONIES OF THE APOCALYPSE
You have to pick either the Bible Ends or Magic Friends. First off,
The Takers have this....
They chose Magic Friends, but Bible Ends left them in the rain too
long. The Crusaders get.....
They chose BIble Ends and got nothing but a washout. Magic Friends
is the one. The women have....
Also the one that made TMNT films in the 90's, they went with Magic
Friends and poof! 50 on the board. We move on to....
KIRK'S RIGHTEOUS REMIX
What did Kirk mix up this time? The Takers start with....
"Being sons of Abraham, Doesn't bring you guarantees; Brand
new sons of Abraham Could be made by God from these"
They said from the least of these, but glass houses should never be
thrown at....stones. Stones was the one. The Crusaders have this....
"Philistines stole the Ark of the Lord, And in their
temple's where it got stored; The graven image fell on its face, Who
was the god that fell in disgrace?"
They go with Dagon and go with the right answer. The women end
"God laid down a big sheet full of non-kosher food, Like ham
that's barbequed or lobster that's been stewed; God laid down a big
sheet full of non-kosher food, To get Peter to meet what dude?"
They have the right answer of Corneilus. As in the rooster from the
Corn Flakes box. To end all 4 rounds, we check teh scores. The
Takers stay put at 25, Crusaders at 75 and the WOmen with a
hammering of 205. Time for this little wake up call known as.....
THE CHOSEN THREE
The women want to know, since they're going first, teh books that have
this name of Michael, as in Michael Jackson.
Daniel, Jude, Psalms, Luke, Revelation or Genesis?
They go with Revelation and Daniel, but Genesis got them zapped, but
just a little static eletricity didn't hurt. Jude was the one. The
Takers might get in if tehy know teh 3 things David took to meet the
giant known as Goliath:
helmet, ram's horn, staff, bag, sling or sword?
They get staff, sling and bag and they bag it in for the HAT TRICK!
The Crusaders need a 3-count fall if they know 3 things Solomon won't
be asking to god:
peace, wealth, death of enemies, unity, long life or power?
They go with wealth...cha-ching!.....long life is next.......yes and
for power........BLACKOUT! Death of enemies was the one and the Takers
wrangle the Crusaders back to the country with $2500. Time for a
bullrope match between these 2. It all has this subject:
Prepare for this hoedown as they enter the rooms with the notable
absence of Laura Hall and the Hallway Dwellers.
The Takers go first and they get.......zero? ZERO???!!!! Are you
freaking kidding me? Who picked this team? Were they watching deers in
a city park? Alright then, if the Women want to win, all they need is
one........and it's a WALK-OFF HOME RUN! The Women took the Takers to
Sunday School. They snatch up $20K while teh Takers head back to WCW
Country with 5 large.
Well, I guess that's about it. 3 more teams and hopefully, a better
bible study showdown. Until then....
THOU SHALT SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!!!!
