About This Quiz

Believers in God have been subjected to all sorts of trials and tribulations in their lives over the years. From this observation, one thing is clear; following your true calling is never easy, but it is sure to be filled with plenty of miracles and moments of awe and wonder along the way.

Are you someone who has suffered "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" to an extreme? If it feels like it's just one horrible tragedy after another for you, perhaps you truly are "God's Favorite." Maybe your faith is being tested in the fires of suffering, and all the difficult circumstances are providing the greatest opportunity for you to shine in the eyes of divinity. If all this sounds familiar to you, it's likely that Job is your most relatable trial.

On the other hand, perhaps you've been called to do some things that call into question your whole ethical and moral code. If the path you are on has taken you to a place of questioning God's will, you might relate to Abraham being asked by God to sacrifice his son, Isaac. If you also find it hard to find ten righteous people in a neighboring town, it seems like we might be heading in the right direction.
