If I'm a neo-orthodox Wesleyan, what are you?

So I took the What's Your Theological Worldview Quiz. And believe it or not, here are my results...

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan and Neo-orthodox?

You scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan. You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God's grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists.

Before you send a sniff or harrumph in my direction, take the quiz yourself and post a comment with your own results.

I'm guessing I placed too much importance on personal piety and holiness to be considered a "reformed evangelical," and my commitment to church history and doctrine made me a Roman Catholic.

(Thanks, Kevin.)

Goodness! 86% Wesleyan, 71% Reformed. Who wrote this test?

Just overshot Reformed Evangelical (79%) for Fundamentalist (82%). Excellent!

That's a horrible quiz...you can't simply answer the questions without responding according to the presupposition underlying the question...it wasn't even close to objective...example:
"Preaching the Word is more important that worship" I answered the question, but I disagree with the premise...in preaching and hearing the preaching, that is worship! In fact, it is the central part of worship. I can't help but think the maker of the quiz is a young whipper snapper who thinks praise and worship music time is worship and you put up with the rest.

Had I answered the questions without regard to the quiz-makers presuppositions...I know I would have been far different.

For what it's worth (not much):

I can understand the fundamentalist, for that term will be applied to anyone who takes the Bible seriously.

The high-catholic rating, I'm sure, comes from the lack of understanding by the quiz's creator of the English Reformation, or of Catholicism, for that matter. I'd be willing to wager that the magisterial reformers would have come out very high on the RCC index of this quiz!

I don't know what's contributing to the high holiness/weslyan index. The ones I know wouldn't count me among their number. Same with neo-orthodox, whom I've routinely critized as pseudo-spiritual cop-outs.

I'd say I'm barely Reformed. The Truly Reformed would label me utterly unreformed. Ho hum.

It is comforting to score low on the others.

Tim, dear brother, Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan? We'll pray for you :) I took this quiz some months ago and had these perfectly delightful scores:

Not a very accurate test. "Speaking in tongues is the most important part of being saved." Even a dyed-in-the-wool Pentecostal wouldn't agree with that statement.

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 79%

Not a very good test, but it does get at certain things.

This was way better than the stupid quizzes on myspace. Thanks Tim!! :-) Here's how I did....

You scored as Reformed Evangelical.

You are a Reformed Evangelical. You take the Bible very seriously because it is God's Word. You most likely hold to TULIP and are sceptical about the possibilities of universal atonement or resistible grace. The most important thing the Church can do is make sure people hear how they can go to heaven when they die.

Lot of poor questions on there. "The best way to understand the Bible is to take it literally." How does one answer that? It depends on if it's a relation of fact or Christ telling us that He's the true vine, the door, etc.

Dudes...

You are all heretics!

I am 100% Reformed Evangelical!!!!
100%, baby, and proud!

Well, it is funny that the pastors of the founding churches of the Reformed Evangelical Pastors College score as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan, not Reformed Evangelical. I took this test a month or so ago and came out Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan, too! And I'm the Dean!!!

I have never seen one of these whose author knew enough comparative theology to deliver accurate results for a wide audience. I guess those who do have better things to do with their time. It's obvious this person hasn't even *heard of* some of what I believe.

89% Reformed Evangelical

Dude, I'm in the right school.

You scored as Fundamentalist.

You are a fundamentalist. You take the Bible as the foundation of your faith and read it very literally, and it shapes your worldview. Non-fundamentalist Christians have watered-down the Gospel in your view, and academic study of the Bible stops us from 'taking God at his word.' Science is opposed to faith, as it contradicts basic biblical truths.

hmmmmm

It was the picture of Jerry Falwell which really concerned me! :)

Shouldn't this test be part of pre-marital counseling? Might make a difference to know such things on down the road...

There's no Lutheran category at all. Hmph.

But really, I don't know how much the inclusion of a Lutheran category would help this quiz. The Wesleyans are taking over the world.

I thought I would see how my results turned out before I decided to post them. I am glad to see I am with Tim and Stephen among others. Archie, apparently we need to talk.

I had 96% fundamentalist. It's obvious that the rest of you are too educated. (With the exception of Mr. Talcott.)

93% fundamentalist (guess ah'm most az ignert as Doktah Wilson!)

79% Reformed & 79% neo-0rthodox

And as others have noted, almost every question led well to "exactly what do you mean by..?" There's enough wiggle room there for an ore boat.

Really, I just asked my unborn son to kick me once for "agree" and twice for "disagree." It seems to have worked out well two-fold:
1. I got the scores that I wanted.
2. Our baby is already cathechized!

What's scary is the "54% Emergent Postmodern".
