[In a few hours, later this afternoon, I will be closing this thread and launching the second survey that narrows things down a bit further. Those who are going to respond should do so as soon as possible.]
I was intrigued by one of the “Bishop Orama threads” of last week, which veered off on the subject of what is known as “theonomy” before the Commenatrix quashed it.
We at StandFirm would like to know how many of our commenters are “theonomists” and to help us learn that, we have created a two question survey, which you will find below. We are hoping that our commenters would help us with the survey by responding in the comment thread to the two questions.
No matter how you answer, there will be no warnings or bannings based on your responses. We’re just interested.
But if you choose to respond to this survey, you would need to adhere to some ground rules.
You would need to respond to the first question with only one word—“yes” or “no”. And you would need to respond to the second question only if you answered “yes” to the first one, and then only using the letter “a” or “b” as your answer.
Any comments or responses that go beyond those ground rules will be deleted.
So with the above as a foundation, here are the two questions.
1) Ought adulterers to be put to death by all civil governments?”
[Please answer “yes” or “no”.]
2) If you answered “yes”, do you believe that the basis for that capital punishment by the State is
a) Because of the Mosaic Penal Sanctions mentioned in Leviticus
b) Some other reason not based on Holy Scripture
[Please respond with the answer “a” or “b”.]
To prove that this can be done, my response to the survey is as follows.
