Heck yeah! I loved this quiz.
Your Result: Baptist
As a Baptist, you believe that the saved are commanded to be baptised as a public display of their faith. You are strongly opposed to the whole idea of infant baptism. After all, it's not recored in the Bible, and it is impossible for a child, still innocent in the eyes of God, to accept Christ with all its heart, and be forgiven for future sins. Baptists share many views with mainstream reformed churches regarding matters such as infallable scripture, evangelism, the Trinity, and the Second Coming of Christ. However, Baptists also place a huge emphasis on religious freedom, believing strongly in the autonomy of local churches, and more generally the separation of church and state.
Many of the questions limit answers and leaves no room for balanced opinion on the question. Thus answers may not always be accurate since in some areas the options given are in themselves someone's theological and religious opinion and not solidly based on bible or theological fact. In making my choices I found it was a case of choosing a lesser 'evil' in certain instances and the end result of 'puritanical' is completely inaccurate as I have very different approach to faith and the church.... Liberal would be closer to it. I believe we should be Christians above everything and the one defining character is live a Christ centered life without being stuck in the traditional rut yet appreciating the traditions and liturgy of the church.
Penn: I completely understood every proposition in the quiz. Are you asking the survey to be dumbed-down or should you do some homework and wonder why you don't know? The survey was written by someone who knows the different church "camps" and their main distinctives. It covered the nature of the church, salvation, Trinity, faith, atonement etc. I would encourage you to study Grudem's systematic theology to get an understanding of basic Christian doctrine and categories. No hard feelings I hope.
verki52: First, I would ask you, "What makes you believe that you are a Christian?" Second, I would ask you, "Does it offend or concern you that might NOT be a Christian?"
davymast, your view on religion is not a Biblical one but more of a personal one. The whole "love" view is like talking about coat hook suspended in mid air. Your "love" theology is not grounded in anything but personal speculation and not Bible investigation. The Bible's answer to this question about "who" achieves salvation is rather an easy one. Jesus did. The question of how it is applied is the next one: Does God apply it or does man apply it to himself?
Faith in Christ alone means that you trust in the entire work of Christ, his life and death, to satisfy God's demands of perfection "Be perfect as your father in heaven is perfect." If you believe that Jesus took your place on the cross (substitution) "He made Him(Jesus) to be sin for us..." (1 Cor. 5:21), and that He took the wrath of God on your behalf for ALL your sins, then you can be a Christian. To believe that you can earn your way into heaven by religion, good deeds, self-improvement projects, etc...is self salvation.
Denominations throughout church history have been helpful to bring out the different distinctions of doctrine within God's Word. However, some denominations are NOT helpful. Also, if you are an atheists, why take the quiz? Why affirm what you deny? Mormons cannot be Christians because they don't believe that Jesus' work saves, but their own "work" saves by good deeds. That is called another/false gospel. Mainline Christianity for centuries have considered the origins and beliefs of the Mormon church to be cultic. Calvinists believe in free will but that human will is either free to sin or fee to obey. Human will is always enslaved either SELF/Satan or to Savior. It is a free will that is bound. Free to sin or free to please God.
