Now I have a box in which to put myself, oh joy!

I did this silly online test to find my 'theological worldview' (in reality the 'test' was a bunch of statements that you could interpret just about anyway you wanted, often pitting things as theological opposites which in fact are not). And I came out as a Wesleyan (I think it might've been because I said revival and holiness are important). Not really sure what this means or what use it is to anyone but the results are below. Why not try the quiz out yourself? If you come out as a Roman Catholic or a Liberal we need to talk.

You scored 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.

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 93%
Reformed Evangelical 93%
Neo orthodox 54%
Fundamentalist 50%
Roman Catholic 43%
Charismatic/Pentecostal 43%
Emergent/Postmodern 36%
Classical Liberal 11%
Modern Liberal 4%

It's alright Pete, I came out as Wesleyan too. I did it again and managed to get Reformed Evangelical. Lloydy is a Fundamentalist apparently!

yeah, I was slightly troubled that I didn't come out more fundy - Marc needs to give me lessons in extremism obviously.

Thankfully, when I did the 'how posh are you?' test I was only 18% posh, so the internet has at least that right.

Good - so are we all agreed "Better Fundamentalist than Wesleyan"? Sounds like a balanced and all embracing theological programme to me.

I was interested to note how Roman Catholic you were.

Yeah, I went in big for Mary since the question was so ambiguous (who wouldn't assign her a big role, being theotokos and all that. I was also pretty positive about councils etc. - though it's interesting to note that aside from the icons bit the survey doesn't contain an awful lot to distinguish catholic (and patristic) from Roman Catholic doctrine.
