How does an idea in this problem relate to faith?
If you try enough different wrong answers, you should get a response "Are you entering the wrong answer just to see what happens?" Sometimes that is a fun thing to do, if there are no consequences for an incorrect answer. For the work I do in preparing worksheets like this, I want to be sure I give an appropriate response for an incorrect answer. As a teacher, I want to give a helpful response so students can learn from their incorrect answer. On a math contest or math test, in a rush or when flustered, a wrong answer might be given. One would NEVER intentionally put down the wrong answer. That scenario is almost laughable (and students do laugh whenever I suggest that). Yet when it comes to man's sin problem, the intentional nature of doing what is wrong even when we know what is right, this is all too common. God knew we all would have this sin problem (Romans 3:10-As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. Romans 3:23-For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.) He knew where this problem would lead (Romans 6:23a-For the wages of sin is death). He provided a solution to it (Romans 5:8-But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while were still sinners, Christ died for us.). The solution is a gift to us (Romans 6:23b-But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) However we still have to accept that gift (Romans 10:9 & 13-That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 13: For whoever calls on the name of the LORD will be saved). What sets Christianity apart from other religions (which also recognize a sin problem and try to find solutions for it), is that God provided the solution. We just have to accept His solution, His son Jesus Christ.
