Diagnose your theology

I don't like labels - but I couldn't resist doing this quiz about What's your theological world view? Apparently I am Emergent Postmodern, which sounds like a slowly incubating disease, and in fact I know a few people who think it is!

You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don't think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

Emergent/Postmodern
82%
Neo orthodox
68%
Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan
61%
Classical Liberal
57%
Modern Liberal
50%
Roman Catholic
46%
Charismatic/Pentecostal
36%
Reformed Evangelical
29%
Fundamentalist
0%

Well, suppose I might be. I can't agree that I am alienated from the older forms of church though. Hat tip to Lesley, who was also diagnosed as emergent postmodern and got it from Pluralist (the quiz that is, not her emergent postmodernism )

Go on, take the test, you know you want to ...

  1. LOL! funny I got exactly the same result, with very similar percentages - maybe it's fixed! Interesting though. I never know how to describe my thoughts on Christianity. From now on I will start all conversations with: 'well, of course I am an emergent post modernist of course...'
