    I definitely forgot to include one important question in my survey. The findings will assist me in my new book, which is nearly finished. I'm just cleaning up some last minute issues with content. In this case, as I reviewed my past notes and previously gathered surveys, I found I forgot to include the question on the Bible.

    Your assistance in completing this task will be greatly appreciated.

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul :type:

    I don't see how the data here will be useful. The demographic information does not link to the poll answer.

    Give That Man a New Bible

    Stefan - you are correct about the demographics, but I found it to be somewhat helpful to know how many respondents were male/female, and the breakdown of their age groupings.

    Why are there no votes for the last option?

    I believe that those that wrote our Scriptures were correctly biased in their idea that there is a God who unconditionally cares for his children.

    They omitted some facts: the bible is not an encyclopedia; we only have the facts God wanted us to have.

    Example: What was Cain's wifes name? (fact omitted).

    I guess we can only give relative answers.

    I am somewhat over 56.

    Salty is always right and prolly left-handed.

    Cheers,

    Male, 37

    I believe everything 100% in the Bible, it is my daily guide and only infallible rule and true knowledge of God in the world. All the stories of the Bible, no matter how fantastic they may seem to the modern mind, are factual, actual events of history.

    I hope this helps your research.

    Most Are.....

    .... 38 and holding. As long as my beard dye can cover my gray, I'll try to stay a youthful 38, being chased by a 63 year old body. :laugh:

    The older I get the closer I get.

    I'm so convinced of God's word that I have no doubt in my heart that it's all true. It's two thousand years old and it still proves it self true nearly everytime I hear the news.
