Opinions on political matters

  1. Derek, I tried taking the survey, but the questions didn't correspond with the options to answer.

    For example, one question was "Do you believe that the Bible is a literal record of events or a fictional set of beliefs to live by?"
    The answers were:
    • The Bible is 100% real
    • It is somewhat true
    • It is 100% fictional
    Literal doesn't mean real. Figurative could still be real even if it isn't literal. The Bible is a bunch of books compiled, and some of it is literal, and some of it is symbolic, but it is all 100% real. So I don't know what the question is ultimately asking.
     
  2. Sorry for the confusion, but I wanted to keep it to 3 choices so I was limited in my options. So in your case from what you are describing I would choose A) 100% real. Thanks!
     
  3. Yeah, that's the question I got hung up on as well, for the same reason.

    Derek, I know you can't change the wording of the survey now, but something like this probably provides clearer options:

    To what degree do you believe the Bible reflects truth?
    - A literal reading of the Bible reflects truth 100% perfectly
    - The Bible reflects truth 100% perfectly, but sometimes through figurative language
    - The Bible may not reflect truth 100% of the time
