looking for a church?

Check this out, an online quiz to determine which Christian tradition suits you best. Here are my results:-

1. Baptist (non-Calvinistic) / Plymouth Brethren / Fundamentalist - 100%
2. Pentecostal / Charismatic / Assemblies of God - 87%
3. Baptist (Reformed / Particular / Calvinistic) - 86%
4. Anabaptist (Mennonite / Quaker etc.) - 85%
5. Congregational / United Church of Christ - 70%
6. Seventh-Day Adventist - 70%
7. Methodist / Wesleyan / Nazarene - 68%
8. Lutheran - 67%
9. Church of Christ / Campbellite - 66%
10. Presbyterian / Reformed - 66%
11. Anglican / Episcopal / Church of England - 65%
12. Eastern Orthodox - 61%
13. Roman Catholic - 40%

Our E&D would be so proud...haha! I found it interesting however, to see that I've got a strong leaning towards the Pentecostal / Charismatic / AoG churches ;)

Contradictory? Maybe.

Or perhaps we aren't that different after all?

Hmmm.... interesting? Top 4 above 90% I wonder how you would interpret all this. But i must say i certainly did not expect Methodist to be number 1.... I kinda get the feeling that some of the questions can sometimes be abit like second guessing your likely response.

honestly, i'm pretty surprised by my results too. I certainly wasn't expected to be tagged a "fundamentalist" after having chosen one or two "non-fundamentalist" selections.

Chris...not surprised by your #1, but Anglican(#2)?? Eastern Orthodox(#3)?? oooooooooohhhhh...hehehehe

But yeah...it's all for the fun of it ;)

Keith said...

How you managed Eastern Orthadox I don't know buddy... hehehe Are you happy with this Chris?

discordant_dude said...

Confounding. The second test (by sivin) is even worse. Though I've no qualms with reformed/presby governance and all. But Eastern Orthodox is stretching it...keke...

Looks like you and jv are the pure-blooded brethrens :) Darby must be proud.

jv. said...

pure-blooded Brethrens i dunno lah...we're probably Mullerites than Darbyites i.e. "open brethren" rather than "closed brethren".

jv. said...

and oh yeah Chris...you and Lareina can probably go visit the church "down the road" together this Sunday. She got Eastern Orthodox too...TWICE!! hahahahahaha

Even then I think both Muller and Darby would turn in their graves hehehe They way we are going they'd have a heart attack if they ever saw us. I prefer the term "Progressive Brethren" hehehehe.
