Monotheists are trailing 18 to 11.
Somehow I don't think this board properly reflects the beliefs of Americans...

Most Bible Thumpers don't drive BMWs. The only Church parking lot full of bimmers on Sundays are the ones down in Beverly Hills, and 90% of THOSE church goer don't believe in god, they're just there to socialize.

I always love it when I see people driving with the "Truth" fish eating the "Darwin" fish...If you still can't accept Evolution as the truth, I'm not sure what you believe in really is the "Truth."

I voted on this poll but I'll keep it anonymous... If I voice my opinion on this thread, this will become yet another flame war...

That is what I sort of thought ... until some of these OT threads about issues related to religion came up.

I am surprised Nate posted this poll. Maybe he just wants some heated discussion - or poop hurling.

Back to my Bible study.

Mark me as a Christian. Lutheran Church Missouri Synod denomination to be specific.

Logic and reason are ‘worldly man’ traits, and are at enmity with Christianity.

Christianity is taking the word of the Holy Spirit and applying it in spite of any type of cerebral processes you may wish to bring to the issue.

I like to :banghead: with many issues, but this is the one and only area where I am compelled to suspend independent thought.

That's why it's described as a 'walk of faith' as opposed to walking by sight.

Some may call it stupid and many simply cannot comprehend it, but I consider it to be the greatest blessing in my life.

Has the Missouri Synod decided to allow women to be ordained yet?

Or to put it another way: just don't think. :tsk:

I don't see one thing about my faith that forces me to suspend reality or not think.

:dunno:

Negative.

Thumbs down to the acceptance of homosexual pastors as well.

As you seem to be aware, LCMS is a very conservative, straight-laced splinter faction of the more secular and mainstream Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

I actually grew up in California as an Episcopalian, but after moving to Indiana and unable to find an Episcopal church that practiced using the old 1928 Prayer Book that we were used to we 'switched' to a denomination that had the same views about God and worship.

I believe any form of faith, or religion, is a very personal thing that I refuse to discuss on the internet with people I do not know. Anything that is discussed in reference to believers vs. non-believers will change neither party's mind on their own beliefs, and leads to nothing constructive.

I grew up attending an ELCA affiliated Lutheran church. There was a Missouri synod church only a few miles away. We sort of viewed them as frozen-in-time.

My parents still attend this ELCA church and the pastor who just left for another "calling" was actually a lesbian. So female AND homosexual. You Missouri Synod folks would be aghast.
