I must say that the above results are pretty accurate for me. I think I'm rather a unique blend of beliefs however. Unique enough that I still consider starting my own church based on my beliefs. Ha! Talk about narcissistic!

I got a rather interesting set of results when I took this; 82% Roman Catholic, which shouldn't be surprising (except maybe that it wasn't higher), since that is what, in fact, I am.

But also 82% Evangelical/Holiness/Wesleyan (that was a bit surprising; maybe my Protestant roots showing), 71% Neo-orthodox, 57% Charismatic/Pentecostal (a bit surprising that that was so low, altho, for all my 'charismatic' practice, I don't tend to place as much 'theological' freight on speaking in tongues as some of my fellows); 54% Emergent/Postmodern (that was VERY surprising), 50% Fundamentalist (another surprise); 39% Reformed Evangelical, 39% Classical Liberal, and 18% Modern Liberal.

Kinda makes me wonder how the quiz was set up. Of course, I'm probably a more 'eclectic' Christian than I typically think that I am, and that would definitely be reflected here. . .

Desmond - From what I've read of your blog (and how dare you desert your fans, btw) I'm not too surprised that the Evangelial Holiness/Wesleyan was high. I see that in your writings, but yes I can see some of your results as surprising.

And of course we know all quizzes on the internet are highly scientific and accurate so all results must be believed. Right?

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.

John Shelby Spong, he's ma dog.

BJ - Your results don't surprise me either. You suppose a Classic Liberal and a Wesleyan can find happiness together? Guess we'll see.
