The response to our ATP Photo Quiz on the Churches of Pakistan was heartening. Many of the church buildings we featured were guessed right. Some were not. It is time now to reveal the correct answers; at least some will surprise you.

First, however, let me share with you (above) this addition drawing – an engraving from March 1880, published in the Graphic – of the Cathedral in Lahore. I thought this was an impressive drawing of an impressive building and worth adding to our collection of more contemporary photographs featured in our Quiz.

Coming to the fifteen photographs in the ATP Photo-Quiz from last week, here are the correct answers (clicking on any photograph will take you to a larger image and details, where available).

(1) Rawalpindi: St. Joseph’s Hospice; (2) Lahore: St. Anthony’s Church;
(3) Murree: Anglican Church.

(4) Karachi: St. Patrick’s Church; (5) Lahore: Roman Catholic Cathedral;
(6) Karachi: Holy Trinity Cathedral; (7) Karachi: St. Joseph’s Convent Chappel;
(8) Peshawar: St. John’s Church; (9) Rawalpindi: Anglican Church.

(10) Karachi: Methodist Church; (11) Nathiagalli: St. Matthew’s Church;
(12) Khambay (near Lahore): New Apostolic Church; (13) Farooqabad (District Sheikhupura): 7th Day Adventist Church and Seminary;
(14) Wah Cantt.: Full Gospel Church; (15) Hyderabad: St. Phillip’s Church.

    Never thought Adventist Seminary church was one of the famous churches in Pakistan. How things change with time.

  3. want to write and tell you that I was a Roman Catholic, but it was the book “National Sunday Law” which brought me to God’s truth to make me a Seventh Day Adventist. When my husband’s uncle gave him your book I picke it up and I could not stop until I had finished it. I was shocked when I read it. I had known that Bibles were buned by the priests and popes but I was SHOCKED when I read that they had tried to change the Law of God. I wanted that moment to be faithful to God. Thank you for your book that is true, that opens the eyes of people, who Rome wants to keep in darkness.

    Romans 7:7 Law is the knowledge of sin. Daniel 7:25 Men will think to change the Law and time. So God did not change the Sabbath. Read Ezekiel 8:16 to find out how Sun worship started.
