You Scored as Neo Orthodox

Just took a quiz on my theological persuasion. It is probably not far off. See my results below, and if you take it let me know what you get and whether you think it accurate.

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 only 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.

Interesting quiz Jon. I have to admit despite the fact that I really need to be hunkering down on a sermon right now I couldn't resist.

I scored 93% Holiness/Wesleyan and then 82% Neo-Orhodox. For those interested here is the write-up on my top score:

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 heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists.

Oh, and I think it's fairly representative of where I am right now in my faith-journey.

Nicely done. 93% is high: you should get some sort of C&MA badge of honour! Have a good sermon.

I feel it was pretty accurate for me as well. Neo Orthodox and Emergent at the top and Reformed/Fundamentalist at the bottom makes total sense to me.

The 54% fundamentalist I think is off (although in hindsight I think I answered some of 'those' questions wrong - for me), but other then that...
I don't know I have more thinking to do.

Jon Coutts said...

Let's not be afraid of the word fundamentalist. That said I was sort of proud of my 11% until Jon made fun of me. Then there was Doug. ; )

Enjoyed seeing these, thanks folks.

There are a few I answered in the middle because I need to think more. Maybe that's why I'm really high. hmmmm
