What’s your theological worldview?

My friend Ruth has found a new online quiz, called “What’s your theological worldview?”. I wrote a paper at college about how our worldview affects the way we ‘do’ church.

Here’s how I scored, quite predictably, really:

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.

Emergent/Postmodern 75%
Neo orthodox 71%
Roman Catholic 68%
Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 57%
Modern Liberal 54%
Classical Liberal 32%
Charismatic/Pentecostal 29%
Reformed Evangelical 11%
Fundamentalist 0%

Haha! Ruth was upset that she scored 7% for Fundamentalist; look I scored 0%!
