I Guess I am a Neo-Orthodox Postmodern Quaker (What on earth does that mean?)

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.

My friend Cate sent this to me and thought it would be fun to do, I did it a long while ago and think I came out as Jurgen Moltmann last time. Funny thing is I’ve never read any Moltmann. I’ve never read PT Forsythe either and only a little Barth, but I can see how I still come out more on his end of things. I am a little curious about the fundamentalist points at the bottom, must be because I still believe in the bible. I am also curious how much this score changes with the different answers given, I waffled on a few questions between the middle spot and the #2 (disagree) and #4 slots (agree). Maybe, I should do it a few more times and take the best score out of 5 or something. Another thing I noticed is that Quaker was’nt an option, but I guess you could lump me into the holiness/evangelical Quaker family tree pretty easily. It’s funny how these tests never ask you the questions you really think are important. Let me know where you come out, and if you care to try and interpret my score go for it.

  1. @Cate – that’s really funny, You’re higher than me!

    @Jill – so what exactly does that mean? I am trying to figure it out for my ownself!

    @ GT – You’re almost a Quaker with a score like that!

  2. i was brian mclaren. i hate being bald. but what’s exciting is i’m only 4% fundamentalist!!!

  3. Hikari, I would have thought that being an old white guy would be more troublesome for you than being bald! Come on why isn’t there any body other than white men represented in theological pool!?

    Anyways, you and I are tied at 4% fundamentalist eh? We need a tie breaker.

  4. 4% fundamentalist? I’m worried about my 11% score!
    And while it is pretty accurate, I do feel bad at being 0% charismatic.
    hmm…

    Great quiz!
