Which Lord of the Rings evil character are you?

Which Lord of the Rings evil character are you?

I thought this quiz would be a lighthearted way to think about our weaknesses and struggles with sin. By seeing what Lord of the Rings evil character or monster we are most like, we can see what our sins look like and ask God to help us, transform us, and give us strength to resist sin.

A person you very much dislike is coming down the road, what do you do?

Take a walk behind her and kick rocks at her periodically and repeatedly throw little twigs at her back, all the while pretending you are doing nothing.
Just continue doing what I had planned. He is insignificant.
Jump in front of her and yell at her for 30 minutes about how much you dislike her and how you think she is stupid.
It would be fun to go outside the house and yell at him, but that is too much work. Rather go back to bed...
Sneakily walk behind him and pick his pockets to steal his wallet.
Go out and talk to her and pretend to reconcile with her. But just when she is ready to hug you in forgiveness, push her down into the mud.
