Hello, The following list of questions is for anyone interested in participating. There is no right or wrong answers. I'm not looking for a debate. I am hoping to validate my belief that each of us have more in common than not. The reason for the number of questions is because I am trying to be as balanced and comprehensive as I can... and 50 is a good round number, great for figuring percentages etc. If those who are willing we please answer with A,B,C,D, or E that would be wonderful. A = Strongly agree, B = Agree, C = Neither agree or Disagree, D = Disagree, E = Strongly Disagree. Also, if you can identify what faith you are (Christian, Muslim, Jewish, etc.) that would be wonderful. Always sincere.... John B 50 Questions God is real. There are no other gods beside him. God is the creator of all things. God is omnipotent, omniscient, and all powerful. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Savior, and Redeemer of the world. Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. Jesus Christ was a great prophet. God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost) are members of the Godhead or Trinity. God hears and answers my personal prayers. God hears and answers the prayers of others, even those of different faiths than mine. Heaven is real. Hell is real. There are multiple levels or degrees in Heaven. The Old Testament (Talmud), at least at the time it was originally penned, was inspired of God. The New Testament, at least at the time it was originally penned, was inspired of God. The Quran, at least at the time it was first uttered, was inspired of God. The Bible, both the Old and New Testament, is without major error today. The Quran is without major error today. Adam, Noah, Moses, Samuel, Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Malachi, and all of the other prophets written of in the Old Testament were true prophets sent by God. John the Baptist was a prophet sent by God. Peter, James, John, Paul, and the other apostles spoken of in the New Testament were called of God and were prophets. It is the Grace, Love, and will of God that saves us. Faith is a necessary part of obtaining salvation. Works, especially charitable works, are a necessary part of obtaining salvation. Tithes and or alms are essential to living the kind of life God expects of us. I believe in the resurrection of the dead – that our sprits and our bodies will be re-united in perfect form. After his death on the cross Jesus became the first to be resurrected. Everyone who has ever lived on the earth will be resurrected to either eternal life or eternal damnation. There will a day of judgment when all, small and great, will be brought before God to be judged. We will be judged for our works and whether we repented of our wrongs or not. Those who died wicked will be wicked still, and those who died righteous will be righteous still. Those who do not accept Jesus Christ as their Savior before they die will be damned. Those who do not acknowledge Mohammad as God’s prophet cannot be saved. Adam and Eve were the first humans on the earth and all people descended through them. Familial relationships that exist here on earth (husband, wife, son, or daughter) will continue into the next life. Men and women are equal before God. Miracles and the gifts of the Spirit spoken of in the scriptures are real; namely: prophesying, healing, casting out devils, raising the dead, speaking and interpreting tongues, etc. Baptism, both by water (immersion) and by the Holy Spirit, are necessary for salvation. Our lives start at birth/conception, not some other place before. Angels, demons (Jinn), and humans are three distinct and separate creations of God. Satan (Iblis) was either an angel or demon who openly rebelled against God and was thrown out of heaven. One of the signs immediately preceding Judgment Day will be the Second coming of Jesus Christ. God is Just and Merciful, and commands us to be the same. God’s laws permit us to defend ourselves, even to the point of violence; but our reprisals should be equal to the offense (eye for eye, tooth for tooth), never greater. Those who die while on the path of God will be rewarded in Heaven. God forgives whom he chooses to forgive, but we are to forgive all (seventy times seven). People are accountable for their own sins, not anyone else’s (parent, child, or Adam’s original sin). There are no other prophets outside of the Bible, nor will there be any more. There are no other prophets outside of the Quran and the Bible, nor will there be any more. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
