Quiz: Is it a sin or is it NOT a sin?

Let’s face it, a lot of the stuff the elders claimed was sinful was just made up at a board meeting back in the 1960s sometime. Still, if you’ve been raised in a strict Mennonite environment, it’s not always easy to tell what is an actual commandment of God and what’s just something made up by the elders. So, let’s see how well you do.

I know this is a contentious term, but for the purposes of this quiz, we’re defining “sin” as something expressly forbidden in the Bible. So, yeah, you’re trying to answer which of these things are actually forbidden in the Bible, and which are just B.S. from the elder board.
