What is your theological worldview?
Andrew Jones blog pointed me to this theological worldview test. Some tricky questions but very interesting. Bit nervous about being 68% Roman catholic and only 50% reformed evangelical! I am sure I disagreed strongly with the Pope question? Perhaps the test doesn’t take into account my Anglican side. And as for being as much a liberal as I am charismatic…
Anyway give it a try and tell me what you come out as. Here are my results:

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.

  2. Mark,

    Fun quiz …

    I must say that some of my answers would depend on the usage of the word, for example:

    Miracles are still commonplace today, and are very important

    Using a broad understanding of miracles: things that can most descriptively be understood as the working of God

    I would say yes they still happen … their importance however is in becoming mindful of God’s work in our lives … not in proofing our faith by the occourance or proofing our rightousness by our blessing.

    I also get nervous at their use of the word assurance … I understand it was a central word for Wesley … but did it mean to him what it does to us? One of the things I learned growing up in a charismatic community that abused its power over people is to be very causious of anyone claiming to know what God wants or what God thinks we should do … so the very idea of assurance is a word that makes me uneasy …

    In any case I was not shocked to score highly in emergent thought … but to see the bunching at 64-54 of a lot of things … I wish there was more of a spread.
