<%image(20050616-barth.jpg|75|99|barth)%> I just took a quiz at quizfarm.com on my theological world view. As no surprise to myself, I came out 89% Neo-Orthodox (Neo-Orthodoxy on Wikipedia) and 86% Emergent/Postmodern. I would assume this is because on many of the issues that polarize the church I put myself smack in the middle, no willing to deny or affirm the statement. For example, “Jesus was a great moral teacher whom we should try to imitate.” Agree or disagree? Heck, both! Yes he was a great moral teacher, but that’s hardly a picture of Jesus, the Son of God, Savior, etc. But if I disagree am I saying that he’s immoral or something? I guess that’s the limitations of a survey.
This is a fun little survey to take and it raises some interesting issues through the questions that got me thinking. The rest of my results are below.
|You scored as Neo orthodox. You are neo-orthodox. You reject the human-centredness and scepticism of liberal theology, but neither do you go to the other extreme and make the Bible the central issue for faith. You believe that Christ is God’s most important revelation to humanity, and the Trinity is hugely important in your theology. The Bible is also important because it points us to the revelation of Christ. You are influenced by Karl Barth and P T Forsyth.|
