    1. What has been the most positive effect of the church in the black community?

    Strength in unity


    2. What has been the most negative effect of the church in the black
    community?

    Stupidity in unity



    3. Why do African Americans statistically outnumber whites and Hispanics in strength of belief?

    I don't think they do, they just say they do, and what they say is not enought to actually determine that they do.



    4. What is the main reason African Americans attend church: (Put an X by TWO (2) choices)

    B. Entertainment
    not listed Socializin!

    5. Who are the most influential in the African American community? (Put an X by TWO (2) choices)

    A. Political leaders

    B. Athletes

    C. Black Business men and women

    D. African American Scholars

    E. Popular Music Stars

    F. Religious Leaders
    I do not think that the black community is influenced greatly by any particular thing. We are probaly more into trying to influence than to be influenced

    6. Who do you trust the most: Rate the following by putting a number
    from 1-6 next to each with 6 being the highest or the most trustworthy.

    A. African American Politicians<b>(Professional Liars)</b>

    B. African American Rappers<b> (Pimped idiots)</b>

    C. African American Preachers <b>(Shoddy-assed hustlers)</b>

    D. African American Teachers<b>(Empty headed beaureaucrats)</b>

    E. African American Athletes <b>(knuckleheaded jocks)</b>


    7. In your opinion, what makes for a good church in the African American community?


    8. Given a choice, which would you rather attend?

    A. A church with a good preacher, but mediocre choir and message
    B. A church with a strong message but a weak preacher and choir
    C. A church with a good choir and a mediocre preacher and message
    D. A church with no choir, but with a strong message and preacher

    Churches have messages, that can be differentiated from preachers?
    I would go to a church with a intense bible study and a decent Sunday School

    9. In your opinion, what percentage of people do you believe are actually touched by the spirit during church
    services?

    A. 90%

    B. 10%

    Touched by what spirit? They probaly just touched

    VERY FITTING POLL..in spite of recent events...

    1. Uplifting and reaching out to its' people and welcoming those that no one else would
    2. disregarding issues in the black community as it chooses to--in other words, not adapting GOD's words to the times
    3. Do we ACTUALLY outnumber others or just in theory? If so, I believe it has to do with 1) clinging to the belief that our strong faith will overcome our current and past situation and 2) continuing to believe because our ancestors did
    4. A-message of hope F-because everyone else does
    5. If influenced at all, I would say A & F (my age community) --younger community B & E
    6. A-3
    B- It's a draw
    C-2
    D-1
    E -It's a draw
    7. A church that tells the WHOLE story..breaks it down according to message and makes it real and relevant to what went on then and what is going on now... A church that is not afraid to take on issues that may offend for fear of losing money or membership..A church that teaches its people ways to uplift themselves spiritually and economically, because I believe I serve a God who desires me to have strength in all ways and all things with HIS guidance..
    8. A church with a strong message is all it takes for ..the actually "preaching" is just semantics for me..
    9. I have no idea
    10. I don't discount any of these, although none has been "true" for me to date.

    My opinion

    1. What has been the most positive effect of the church in the black community? It brings us together as one in equality and sometimes respect. Teaches and uplifts the human brain..

    2. What has been the most negative effect of the church in the black community? When a church is more interested in their people's financial matter rather than their religious state. The way they shy away those who do not believe the same as they do. And the misconception given off at times by many of their own beliefs.

    3. Why do African Americans statistically outnumber whites and
    Hispanics in strength of belief? Can't really answer that because I didn't know that.

    4. What is the main reason African Americans attend church: (Put an X
    by TWO (2) choices)

    C. Fellowship and music

    G. Because they love the Lord


    5. Who are the most influential in the African American community? (Put an X by TWO (2) choices)

    C. Black Business men and women

    F. Religious Leaders

    6. Who do you trust the most: Rate the following by putting a number
    from 1-6 next to each with 6 being the highest or the most trustworthy.

    A. African American Politicians 2

    B. African American Rappers 2

    C. African American Preachers 3

    D. African American Teachers 5

    E. African American Athletes 2

    7. In your opinion, what makes for a good church in the African American community? One that excepts all.. for who they are and is will teach the word without extreme compensation. One who lives and thrives off Gods Word and is not hypocrytical by the end of the service. Where everyone knows everyone and respects each other, get along and helps out in their own community surrounding their church.. Investing in their commmunity and their church.. because I look at i like this.. if the community can invest in the church.. the church should be able to invest in the community. And that befits our society...

    8. Given a choice, which would you rather attend?
    None of the above... I'd rather attend a church with a preacher with good heart and understanding of the word that he is about to preach and will relay in a way i can understand... And a choir that can blow and get my flood flowing as the spirit moves me...

    9. In your opinion, what percentage of people do you believe are actually touched by the spirit during church services?

    D. 25%

    10. Put an X by all the things you believe to be true.
    The rest...I have not seen with my own eyes so I can't really call it.. I think anything is possible... And will leave that question open to possibilities...

    Clearly

    One thing that seems to be coming through clearly is that we don't have much trust for our preachers and politicians--Ra
