More silly (but religious!) blog stuff

Oh that Beppe! He has no resistance, and he led me into this by his example!

You scored as Emergent/Postmodern. You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don’t think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

I thought it was interesting that Beppe and I both had Wesleyan/Holiness show up fairly high. I’ve always thought that Friends (of all sorts) tend to confound the category-makers.

And this one, too:

You scored as Paul Tillich. Paul Tillich sought to express Christian truth in an  existentialist way. Our primary problem is alienation from the ground of our being, so that our life is meaningless. Great for psychotherapy, but no longer very influential.

Which theologian are you?

The three-way tie was broken by saying which of three statements was most true or most important. I picked the one that was something like "God has no being. God is the ground of our existence." Or something like that.

  1. I’m glad I inspired you. Some have nicknamed me “Eve” (as in, he made me do it! while pointing at me. :))

    I think you’re right about the mix and match. One of the questions was to the effect of whether the responder believes that the spirit or life of Christ should be the primary purpose of a Christian’s life. Well, of course, I answered a strong “yes” given the faith of Friends. This probably helped give me a higher score on the Evnagelical/Holiness category.

    But, then I think a few questions were whether the Bible should be interpreted literally or being the sole (or primary) source of guidance (or something along those lines) and I answered a strong “no”. Well, that put me in the Liberal camp.

    We’re so post-modern, aren’t we??? {tee-hee-hee} 🙂
