Christian Sect Quiz

I hope that this quiz will not serve so much to help someone pick a denomination, but more to reveal the things that some Christian denominations accept as true, to highlight the variety of beliefs among those groups, and to force the question of "What do I believe about that?" in every person who takes the quiz. Also, when viewing the result of the quiz, you'll have to add a the usual prefix (http, www) to most of the referenced websites. This quiz creator would not allow URLs in the text body. Apologies.

There are only ten results to this quiz. In making this quiz, I asked members of my theology class to pick ten "interesting-sounding" Christian sects from a list of twenty-seven of the most common groups. As a result, the only possible outcomes for this quiz are: Unitarian Universalist, Jehovah's Witness, Liberal Quaker, Mormon, Orthodox Quaker, Seventh-day Adventist, Southern Baptist, United Pentecostal Church, Salvation Army and Christian Science. These sects are fairly random, and very diverse. Many traditional Protestant or Catholic believers would not consider some of them Christian. I hope that this quiz will give enough information to allow one to make that judgment for one's self.
