Purple-o-meter -my theological worldview according to someone at quizfarm

To the guy who asked if my theology was primarily moving towards liberalism...

"You scored as Emergent/Postmodern. 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."

What's your theological worldview?

I would say this is fairly accurate. Though some of the questions bugged me, it was a fairly interesting and challenging quiz to take. Rarely did I choose the full on agree or disagree option...but I guess thats part of the emergent attitude --trying to stay open minded enough to hear other perspectives.

Thanks to Rob Spain for the link (an infrequent, but great blog if you haven't checked it out. I also found out about protopage through his site)

Ewww... of all the things to try to quantify, this has to be one of the worst. I couldn't even make it through scanning the questions.

I much prefer deeply personality revealing polls like this one.

thanks for the mention link Leif. I think you may have inspired me to blog more.

I am rather surprised that you didn't score in Emergent/Postmodern
