3. ORIGINS OF PHYSICAL UNIVERSE AND LIFE ON EARTH. Choose one.
Per Book of Genesis; God created a mature universe and mature life forms from nothing in less than 7 days, less than 10,000 years ago.

4. WHAT HAPPENS TO HUMANS AFTER DEATH? Choose one.
Souls are judged immediately for a foretaste of heaven or hell. At the final judgment, God (or Christ) will resurrect and judge all for heaven or hell. (Or, souls may also be judged for punishment and/or purification before heaven.)
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 paradisiacal earth for eternity.
Souls don't survive death. God (or Christ) will resurrect the righteous at the final judgment for eternity in heaven or on a paradisiacal earth; the wicked will remain dead.
The soul's spiritual development continues after death so that all may eventually experience the indescribable joy of closeness to God. Hell is not a place but the tormented state of remoteness from God.
Rebirths occur (continually, or until all life's lessons are learned and one merges with the life force, or until complete enlightenment and eternal bliss are attained, et al.)
There is definitely an afterlife, but the specifics cannot be known or are unimportant -- most important is one's conduct in life.

5. WHY IS THERE TERRIBLE WRONGDOING IN THE WORLD? Choose one.
Humans inherited sinfulness, or a damaged nature, or tendency to yield to Satan's temptations from Adam and Eve who committed the original sin against God.
Wrongdoing results from God-given freewill plus a weak side, or a drive to satisfy personal needs, which sometimes results in wrongful choices (and/or vulnerability to Satan's temptations).
Ignorance of one's true existence as pure spirit and as one with the Universal Truth (or Soul, Mind, et al) can lead to wrongdoing.
Not listening to the voice of God, who resides within all, can lead to wrongdoing.
Egoism (self importance) leads to desire, craving, and attachments, which can lead to unwholesome thoughts and behavior, i.e. greed, hate, and violence.
No supernatural or spiritual reasons. Human nature, psychology, sociology, criminology, etc. explain wrongdoing. Or not sure. Or not important.
None of the above.

7. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH SUFFERING IN THE WORLD? Choose ALL that apply.

Suffering is part of God's divine will, plan, or design (e.g. to discipline, test, challenge, strengthen faith, strengthen character, promote moral growth, or for reasons that we cannot or may not know).
Suffering is a state of mind, (or illusion); only our spiritual nature is real.
Spiritual or cosmic imbalance and disharmony may result in suffering.
Unwholesome thoughts and/or deeds (greed, hatred, and violence) in this or prior lives return as suffering (karma).
None of the above; human suffering has nothing to do with the supernatural or karma.
