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.

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.

You scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan. You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition.

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.

I started doing the quiz before realising it assumed Christianity as a basis, but carried on regardless and disagreed with practically everything :) Interesting result.

Another Emergent/Postmodern... which is funny, as I'm really quite anti-postmodernism. Ah well. I didn't really understand all the questions anyway (references to certain writers, figures etc)

You scored as Roman Catholic. You are Roman Catholic. Church tradition and ecclesial authority are hugely important, and the most important part of worship for you is mass. As the Mother of God, Mary is important in your theology, and as the communion of saints includes the living and the dead, you can also ask the saints to intercede for you.

That is a bit surprising - did you strongly agree that the Pope was the head of the church on earth?

I'm not at all surprised that I came out RC, but I would have expected the Liberal scores to be higher.

The questions seemed randomised, to a certain degree - maybe he wasn't asked about the pope?

I'm not sure. I mean, I don't see how he can be head of the bits of church that his bit of church isn't in communion with. But those bits are still part of the church on earth.

My brain may be stewed by law, but I'm struggling to see the connection between those two things.

I think that Christ is the head of the Church. I don't like the distinction between "on earth" and "in heaven". I wonder whether "Christ is the head of the Church which is a part of the created order" would sum up my thoughts. I confess that I don't know where I think that leaves the Pope. I took the test and ended up "neo-orthodox". My Barthian streak shows forth.

And now I'm just pondering on whether the Church is a part of the created order or not. I think that that is an untrue statement. I think I'd rather just say "Christ is the head of the Church" and leave it at that. If He's head over all, then He's head on earth as well.

The thing is that I don't think any Christian would deny the headship of Christ, so I don't think that can be what the question is asking. As someone commented, several of the questions seem badly phrased, and I tried to answer the questions I thought were meant rather than the ones actually asked. So, in this case, I took the question as meaning, "Do you think that the Pope is Pope." And I answered, "Yes, definitely."

You scored as Modern Liberal. You are a Modern Liberal. Science and historical study have shown so much of the Bible to be unreliable and that conservative faith has made Jesus out to be a much bigger deal than he actually was. Discipleship involves continuing to preach and practice Jesus' measure of love and acceptance, and dogma is not important in today's world. You are influenced by thinkers like Bultmann and Bishop Spong.

Perfectly accurate. I'm a classical liberal with vague RC leanings mostly due to my upbringing.

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan,
then Emergent Postmodern...

The hardest question was 'is social action more important than saving lost souls'. We can both, but...

Hummm. Just thinking. It's actually almost as interesting to see what comes near the bottom of people's lists as it is to see what comes out top!

Which reminds me: I actually started writing a "What sort of heretic am I?" quiz to so people can know if they were a pelagian, modalist, gnostic, adoptionalist, etc. Really should finish that sometime (and I need ideas for icons!)

Woohoo, mangaged to get fundamentalist off of zero ;-).

I found a number of statements annoying because they were technically true of false without their intention being so, like "We can't understand God without looking at humans". Technically true in the 'you'll never fully understand God' way. Or "God says it, I believe it, that settles it.", technically true, but I don't think I'd get on well with people who took to using that mantra. I suspect them (probably unfairly, I don't know any) of not being all that open to what God says. Or trying to argue for the primacy of Jesus over the Bible or the Bible over Jesus as God's revelation. Jesus in the Bible, the Bible recording Jesus. It's like asking whether the paper or the pen is more important in writing mathematics.
