    F. I don't believe in paranormal sky faeries.

    And yes, why not a poll?

    What in the Bible cannot be explained? What objections to Christianity do you have?

    Which cult do you belong to? And a huge LOL to all non-Christian religions as Other.

    Wow! Omitting major religions Judaism and Islam from the list. Implying the Mormons are cultists. That's not very Christian of you...

    Progressive Christians for example are not true Christians for fakes and phonies. They do not hold to true Christian beliefs.
    --- Post Merged, Mar 5, 2016 ---
    Mormonism is another gospel (Gal 1:8-9) and denies the essential verdicts of the Christian faith. Implying that Christians cannot judge is not very accurate of you, for we are to test the true from the false and make Biblical judgments. But this I do not expect you to understand.

    Everyone is happy to tell you THEIR. version of things while dismissing YOUR version of things. The bible was written by Satan in order to control men.

    I implied no such thing. I simply judged your judgment and found it defective w/r/t Christian compassion.

    Do you state things without objective evidence? Your opinion is based in just that, but what I have stated on the Bible being true comes from far more than my opinion, but based in historical and archaeological fact. My article is just an outline to the defense of the Bible as PLENTY of books have been written that provide much archeological defense.

    Which beliefs are those?

    Also, if you found your wife wasn't a virgin before you married her, would you stone her to death? Or, despite that bit being in Deuteronomy, are you going to find a way to say that the official words aren't the true Christian beliefs? (Don't forget, the old testament is no less valid, or else the new testament would have not included it to begin with.)

    What I learned in Church:

    Jesus rose from the dead: zombieism
    We drink his blood: vampirism.
    We eat his flesh: cannibalism.

    Christmas really should be rolled-up into Halloween.

    Is God so flawed that he needed a New Testament? Did he autograph it ,?

    None of these terms are referenced in the Bible. I am a Christian plain and simple.

    Interesting how you prioritized being a "protestant" over believing in Christ.

    Don't know why you lumped Atheist, Agnostics, and Skeptics under F. Each one is markedly different from the other.

    I'd probably consider myself an Agnostic. Kinda open to both Theism and Atheism as equal possible concepts in this wild, crazy universe of ours, but make no claims of being either. Though I'll happily discuss religion and it's pros and cons, generally speaking, I'm pretty neutral on the whole subject.

    Same thought crossed my mind. What a singularly intellectual (and theologically) - and arbitrary - and remarkably limited set of parameters.

    (What about the other monotheistic religions, Judaism, and Islam, not to mention the antique and venerable Hindu faith, and what of Buddhism? Why exclude them?)

    Because they are more similar to each other than let's say Mormonism or progressive Christianity.

    God is angry with the wicked everyday. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous his path and let him return to the Lord (Isa 55).
