I'm glad I wasn't a JW back then (test)
If you think being a Jehovah’s Witness is bad now you should have been around in the good old days thousands of years ago. Perhaps you might enjoy taking this test I found online about how well do you really know the Bible. I have copied 10 questions out of 50 here for you to think about but you can take the whole test at this link:
1. What is the penalty for working on the Sabbath?
You will be stoned to death.
Neither you nor your offspring to the 5th generation can enter the tabernacle.
You should sacrifice two unblemished she goats.
You will be disinherited from the kingdom.
2. How should parents treat a stubborn and rebellious son?
He should be beaten seven times with a whip made of horsehair.
He should be stripped and humiliated at the gate of the city.
He should be expelled from the family.
He should be stoned to death.
3. What happens if you are not a virgin on your wedding night?
Your father must pay 100 shekels of silver to your husband.
You can never approach the altar.
You must dress in black and leave your husband for one year.
You will be stoned to death.

Witches can be saved if they are exorcised.
Witches are part of the mythology of idolatrous tribes.
5. What happened to Korah and his family, Israelites who thought they could deal directly with God without a human intermediary?
They became priests.
They were expelled from the nation of Israel.
The earth opened and swallowed them up.
They were stripped of all their belongings, houses, and livestock.
6. After Jephthah was victorious in battle, what sacrifice did he burn on the altar, as he had vowed to the Lord?
Two unspotted lambs.
His virgin daughter.
7. How many sexual partners did King Solomon have?
One wife and 300 concubines.
One wife. (The concubines were servants.)
One thousand sexual partners.
8. What happened to 42 little children who teased God's prophet Elisha for being bald and he cursed them in the name of the Lord?
They were whipped by their parents.
They and their descendants to five generations were forbidden to enter the tabernacle.
Two bears came out of the forest and killed them all.
They were forced to work seven years for the Levites as child slaves.
9. How does the biblical god treat haughty women?
He makes them barren.
He puts scabs on their heads and uncovers their private parts.
He takes away their gold and expensive clothing.
The Holy Spirit causes them to feel shame for their arrogance.
10.. In dollars (shekels), how much is a woman worth?
Half a male.
The same as a male.
Twice as much as a male.
Irrelevant. The bible does not put a financial value on human life.
Damn, well maybe shunning isn't so bad after all. huh? NOT
