Understanding the question

When taking an exam it’s important to come up with the right answers to the questions; nearly right answers don’t count. Here are some of the answers that English schoolchildren gave in a Religious Studies exam: Noah’s wife was called Joan of Ark; a myth is a female moth; sometimes it is difficult to hear in church because the agnostics are bad; the Pope lives in the vacuum; the Fifth Commandment is “Humour your father and mother;” and Lot’s wife was a pillar of salt by day and a ball of fire by night. Knowing the right answers are important, but not so important as knowing the right questions. And the biggest question of all is why are we here and where are we going? For the answer to that one, Jesus said, ‘Seek and you’ll find, knock and the door will be opened to you.’
