My answers with some explanations:
1. What is the number and nature of the deity (God, gods, higher power)?
Only one God--an incorporeal (no body) spirit, supreme, personal God Almighty, the Creator
2. Are there human incarnation(s) of God (or of gods/goddesses)
3. What are the origins of the physical universe and life on earth?
As in the book of Genesis, but "day" is not 24 hours, possibly refers to thousands (or even millions) of years, or to creation phases
4. What happens to humans after death?
Death results in unconsciousness until, at the final judgment, God (or Christ) will raise the living righteous to heaven; resurrect and destroy the wicked on earth; return the righteous to a paradisal earth for eternity.
5. Why is there terrible wrongdoing in the world?
Wrongdoing results from God-given free will plus a weak side, or a drive to satisfy personal needs, which sometimes results in wrongful choices (and/or vulnerability to Satan's temptations).
6. Satan's presence results in much suffering.
Disagree. (don't buy the "devil made me do it" thing. Ultimately, we decide for ourselves what to do.)
7. Why is there so much suffering in the world?
The original disobedience of Adam and Eve caused all mankind to inherit mortality, which includes bodily imperfection, illness, and decay.
Suffering is part of God's divine will, plan, or design (to discipline, test, challenge, strengthen faith, strengthen character, promote moral growth, or for reasons that we cannot or may not know).
God--three persons of one essence
9. Baptism (or initiation) ceremonies:
10. Regularly confess or repent:
All sins/wrongs, but not necessarily to a cleric.
11. Doing good works (deeds) and acting compassionately is:
Not necessary. (though highly encouraged)
12. Choose ALL statements below that represent your beliefs.
Live very simply; renounce worldly goals and possessions
13. Elective abortion should be accepted (not proclaimed or treated as immoral).
Disagree. (life threating situation demanding abortion to save life is acceptable and necessary sometimes, like with ectopic pregnancy. Abortion because someone dun wanna pay for diapers? absolutely not)
14. Homosexual behavior should be regarded as immoral or out of harmony.
Agree. (the action is immoral, however, people should still be treated with love and respect as any other. Dun worry, I'm not gunna hog-tie and beat anyone to death.)
15. Roles for women and men should be prescribed.
Disagree. (God probably has no gender, and our arguing over such stupid things must really drive God up the wall :) )
16. Divorce and/or remarriage should be restricted or punished or condemned.
Disagree. (discouraged perhaps, but excommunication is kinda extreme is most cases)
17. Social betterment programs (e.g., equality, anti-poverty, education) should be fundamental.
18. Nonviolence (e.g., pacifism, conscientious objector) should be fundamental.
Agree. (for me, this refers to *initiation* of force. I will defend myself from attack if necessary)
19. Prayer, meditation, or spiritual healing practices should be favored to the exclusion of conventional health treatment (for all serious conditions or certain types of serious conditions).
Disagree. (God probably created amoxicillin for a reason, no? :P )
20. Revering nature or the environment should be fundamental.
Disagree. (define revering.....if it means "don't dump toxic waste in Bambi's back yard" then I might agree. I thought, however, that it refered to more religious types of Enviromentalism, so I answered as such)
