How Lutheran Are You?

You may be Lutheran, but if you aren't, that's no reason for not taking this quiz. I hope you have fun figuring out the answers to see just how Lutheran you are. Enjoy! (The first two questions do not figure into your score)

You may have assumed that because you were baptized as an infant you are as Lutheran as they come. If you were, God worked His grace through water and the Word.
