Done just out of curiosity.

You Scored as Emergent/Postmodern

You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don't think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

I'm sort of surprised I managed to get a 100% Catholic and didn't put something that was scored otherwise somewhere in there. Otherwise, this is incredibly unsurprising.

Catholic at the top, Fundamentalist at the bottom. Not surprised. My top five were Catholic, Wesleyan, Neo-Orthodox, Emergent, and Classical Liberal, all of which were above fifty per cent (the only ones that were). Low scores on biblical inerrancy, high importance placed on social/communal/liturgical issues and Mariology, and somewhat knee-jerk defensiveness of the 'older churches' probably have a lot to do with this.

You Scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan

You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God's grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavily by John Wesley and the Methodists.

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 75%
Neo orthodox  68%
Reformed Evangelical 61%
Emergent/Postmodern 57%
Fundamentalist 50%
Charismatic/Pentecostal 43%
Roman Catholic 43%
Classical Liberal 43%
Modern Liberal 25%


I felt like some of the questions were misleading, but it's certainly better than some tests I've seen. I think the test could use a little tweaking in developing the distinctions between Fundamentalist, Wesleyan, and Reformed Evangelical. There were very few questions that would legitimately distinguish a fundamentalist, for instance.

I'm not entirely suprised with the result. I knew my Wesleyan roots are quite strong but they didn't take in to consideration that many who are now Pentacostal/Charismatic have deep Wesleyan/Holiness influences as well. To borrow a phrase from my former Pastor/District Superindendent of the Assemblies of God in Indiana Donald Gifford, "I'm a Classical Pentacostal"

You Scored as Classical Liberal

You are a classical liberal. You are sceptical about much of the historicity of the Bible, and the most important thing Jesus has done is to set us a good moral example that we are to follow. Doctrines like the trinity and the incarnation are speculative and not really important, and in the face of science and philosophy the surest way we can be certain about God is by our inner awareness of him. Discipleship is expressed by good moral behaviour, but inward religious feeling is most important.

Karl Barth/Emil Brunner crisis-of-modernity theology that recontextualizes and tries to reinvigorate what are seen as the core insights of the Reformation. Big focus on the transcendence of God, inherent sinful characteristics of humanity, often a sort of Kierkegaardian outlook.

I tried to answer what I would answer were I a believer (which is always a tricky game) and ended up with it.

You Scored as Neo orthodox
You are neo-orthodox. You reject the human-centredness and scepticism of liberal theology, but neither do you go to the other extreme and make the Bible the central issue for faith. You believe that Christ is God's most important revelation to humanity, and the Trinity is hugely important in your theology. The Bible is also important because it points us to the revelation of Christ. You are influenced by Karl Barth and P T Forsyth.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Bit difficult to answer since some of these things meant something different to me than they probably did to the author, so take with sh!tload of salt.

I must admit that I had to google Karl Barth and Bishop Spong and read about them and their views before I could answer those two.
