Too many quizzes on the net

Which theologian are you?

You scored as a Karl Barth. The daddy of 20th Century theology. You perceive liberal theology to be a disaster and so you insist that the revelation of Christ, not human experience, should be the starting point for all theology.

Quizfarm: Which theologian are you?

Not certain what to make of this. Better learn a bit about Barth. Pleased to score low on Augustine. The closer one can be to single figures with similarities to Tillich the better; what, with his denial of the divinity of Jesus and quotes like this,
God does not exist. He is being itself beyond essence and existence. Therefore to argue that God exists is to deny him.
I realise he is saying God is beyond existence, but given that God is himself a being...

What's your theological worldview?

You scored as a 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 heavily by John Wesley and the Methodists.

Quizfarm: What's your theological worldview?

Well, the Wesleyan comment did not really surprise me. I am surprised it scored me lower on Catholicism than Liberal Christianity though. Inadequately framed questions perhaps, and slightly simplistic approach to Pentecostalism.

  2. Bethyada,

    We don't seem to be all that different. I'm not sure where Baptists (such as myself) are supposed to rate on this quiz.

  3. I thought I would have scored higher on Augustine. I don't know enough about Barth to have an opinion about that. I do know I've never cared much for Anselm's Ontological Argument. Again, Bethyada, there is some similarity between us.

    You scored as an Anselm
    Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period.He sees man's primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read 'Cur Deus Homo?'

  4. I don't necessarily choose the most extreme score on a quiz unless it is obvious. If there are subtle issues or the question is slightly simplistic I tend to agree rather than agree strongly.

    While I have attended Baptist churches much of my life and agree with much of what is taught I am willing to go against the common belief if I think it incorrect. I am okay in Brethren or Pentecostal churches.

    I actually think I have a fairly pentecostal theology. It is just the quiz failed to appreciate it. I don't think one needs to speak in tongues if one is saved but then many Pentecostals would agree with me. The Pentecostal "appearance" of a church is not what the theology is about.
