PURITAN 91%!!! YIPES. I've always seen myself as a Baptist with strong Calvinist leanings, (Baptist 89%, Calvinist 72%). I attend a Baptist church with strong Pentecostal leanings.
Baptist=89% and Pentecostal=85% Wow! I am just how my mother describes me....Bapticostal!! !! Amen.
Funny, being raised catholic, leaving religion at the age of about 12 having lived the last 48 years as an atheist, the result is as follows: Pentecostal: 86%, Methodist: 62%, Baptist: 57%, Puritan: 38%, Restorationist: 27%, Lutheran: 22%, Calvinist: 15%, Catholic: 15%, Episcopalian: 14%.
Like Hellinc7 questions, perhaps too much focussed on christian denominations...
I also missed options like 'None of these options'.
i agree with revrobin. it is clear what standpoint the questioner comes from, and is loaded!
quite confused... I suppose I can identify with some aspects of Luther's theology, so maybe Lutheran is understandable. Calvinism seems to be high up there tho which does confuse me :s.
It called me a Calvinist! Even though I said people have free will (Qs 3 &amp; 17). Questions 7 and 16 (faith alone and atonement) were difficult because my option was not provided in either. (7: Faith Alone, _evidenced_ by doing good works (James 2) and 16: Atoning sacrifice offered by God to humanity to bring about reconciliation, not appeasement or tricking Satan or even propitiation of an angry god--the sole source of atonement, but not substitutionary.)
Two comments: First some of your answers are loaded, that is to say you do not offer enough options to get to a true belief system nor do you offer a "none of the above" choice. Second, your English usage needs some help, for instance the distinction between "between" and "among" is misused. A good start, but lacks enough depth.
I didn't even understand half of what the questions actually were. This quiz needs to be reworded so all Christians understand, and put into simple language. When I finally got my answer it said I was a Calvinist. I couldn't work out how it came to that conclusion but of course words like presbytery and episcopal are not in my language and definitely not in the Word of God. I am probably a radical pentecostal so I felt duly insulted by the answer.
I like what Hellenic7 said as well.
I like what davymast said
I feel like this quiz has very little to do with the Christian faith, which for me, is all about love. Love is not even mentioned in any of the questions or answers.
Here are my answers:
1. What is your age?
2. What is your gender?
(tho ugh the only other option is female, so those who don't fit into a binary understanding of gender are already excluded)
3. Who do you believe decides whether or not someone achieves salvation?
I don't know. My brain reads this question along similar lines as "If you have a chocolate bar and an apple in your lunchbox, what colour is your pet cat?" I mean, I like chocolate, but I don't care much for apples, and I don't even have a cat. Go figure.
4. Which of the the options below do you think best sums up the legitimate sacraments?
I find murmurs of God's grace all over the place. When I sit and do paintings. When I'm out walking my dog. When I'm drinking a beer and discussing Voltaire down at the pub. Aren't these sacraments too?
5. What are your views on church hierarchy and positions such as that of Priest, Bishop etc?
I like that Bishops get to wear funky gold hats. And the colourful scarfs priests wear are pretty cool to.
6. Do you believe in the idea of a universal church (before the Second Coming), or that people should have religious freedom to pursue their beliefs as God guides them?
Huh? I'm not sure what the second coming has to do with any of this, but I'm happy for people to connect with God (or to struggle with faith) in whatever way suits them. I'm pretty sure if I was born and brought up in a Muslim country that I'd be a Muslim.
7. Which of the following do you believe to be necessary for salvation?
See question 3 on cats and chocolate.
8. Do you believe there is any merit in infant baptism?
Yes, it brings families together, creates a ritual through which children become part of the community, and helps parents feel they're doing the right thing by their child.
9. Do you bel
I was raised Quaker and now am Church of England. I was placed as a Restorationist. Go figure.
I feel like this quiz was relatively biased. I am a nondenominational Christian, and I feel that organized denominations are distracting and put too many limits and too much pressure on believers to be the "perfect" Baptist/Methodist/C atholic/Pentecostal /etc.
Good quiz but PLEASE go back through &amp; use spell check. Thanks.
My result was Episcopalian, as I am an Anglican it got it right. Catholic is second and I would consider myself Anglo-Catholic, right again. Liked it.
does the author of the quiz know that there are Anabaptist Amish/Mennonite etc) sacraments? If so, why were they not included?
hmm.... I currently attend a nondenominational church, but I had previously believed that I possessed Catholic beliefs. Until now, I had never considered an Episcopalian Church, but now I am interested to try it out. Thanks!
I found several questions difficult to answer because I wasn't given an acceptable answer to choose. I don't think it gave a true indication of who I am which should have been Lutheran or Methodist.
Got it right I'm Lutheran, but I got Episcopal for second and I have attended and very much enjoyed the Episcopal Church as well.
Good quiz! It nailed me as a Baptist, altho no church can or will get you to heaven! The guy who complained because he is Mormon should realize that this quiz is designed for Christians.
