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.
please make the words easier to understand please brake it down for dummies like me. how can there be over 100% religeon.
I belong to a religious science church, what do I tell a person who thinks I am not a Christian.
I don't even know what is a Puritan or their stands. I been hoping to attend a Primitive Baptist church (which I never did though).
Mormons are real Christians and the only true Church of Jesus Christ on earth.
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.
