    Some of the answers are wrong. 15 could be B or C, 16 could be A, B or C. 19 is impossible to answer correctly (a male witch is called a warlock, not a wizard).

    I took it real fast and got 4 wrong. Of course I never read Harry Potter.

    Ankerberg got the definition of sorcery wrong. It involves contacting spirits through the use of mind altering drugs. So it should have been "none of the above".

    Sorcery is not just contacting spirits through drugs, though it can include that. It is also visualization and manipulation of energy or forces through rituals, contact with spirits, etc. In some cases, sorcery is considered "black magic" (but magic in God's eyes is always bad) and other times, sorcery is ceremonial or ritual magic. The definition of sorcery has changed over time and differs from culture to culture somewhat.

    A male witch is not called a warlock or a wizard. A male witch is just a witch. The term "warlock" nowadays is considered very negative by witches and some Pagans believe it means an "oath breaker."

    The term "wizard" is more associated with a magician (real one, not one getting rabbits out of hats) than with a witch, but then the term "witch" has changed in the 20th century as well, in this culture.

    I was just asked to write something for publication defining these terms so I had to research them (again, since I've already done research in the past and also know some of them from contact with those who practice these arts).

    The problem is that Ankerberg is using the "Sorcerer's Companion" as the source. That's like me using the "Star Trek Technical Manual" to fix my car.

    Failed miserably. Would have done even worse if it were fill in the blank and I wasn't guessing between 4 options.

    Though several of those terms I have certainly read/heard used with different definitions. Probably not a very accurate test, IMO.
