- Once a believer is saved, he is not sanctified until he totally surrenders at which time he can then achieve a state of Christian perfectionism with the perfect love toward God and man.
- Once a believer is saved, he lives a defeated life until he lets go and lets God. This consecration leads to the victorious life of inward rest and outward victory.
- Once a believer is saved, his process of sanctification is a gradual growth in holiness through spiritual disciplines. There is no second decision.
- Once a believer is saved, he is carnal until he accepts Christ as Lord. He then becomes a spiritual man and begins to slowly grow to become more like Christ.
- I don't know.
Also of note:
- Over 100 respondents (about 10%) believe in gap theory of creation. Really? I didn't realize that one was still around.
- On Question 31: Which view most closely resembles your belief about the millennium? Amillennialism is not an option. At all. Neither was "none of the above." Nevermind that it is the predominant belief in Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican, and Reformed churches, among others. I mean, I expected it to be in the minority, given the survey selection, but I figured it would at least be given as an option. It didn't occur to them that at least one of the 1000+ respondents might pick it?
- Over 72% believe the Lord will return during their lifetime.
- 133 respondents agreed with the statement "Women are equal with men but cannot be in leadership over men in the church, home, or society." Society? Really? Well, there goes Hillary... I guess that one's not that surprising, now that I think about it.
- 14% strongly disagreed with the statement "The preaching of most fundamental evangelists is healthy for believers."
- More respondents were members of the Green Party than the Democratic Party.
- More respondents believe smoking marijuana is always morally wrong than extramarital sex. Smoking is close.
Upon looking more closely at the survey, I see now that I mistook some of the items.
- There WAS a choice for amillennialism. It garnered 8% of the vote. I had overlooked it.
- I reread the choices for views on Creation. Over 10% chose day-age theory, not gap theory. There's a difference. I guess. But still.
