What Is Your Theological Worldview?
So I came across this quiz online that is supposed to gauge your theological worldview. It seems to be pretty accurate, since simply by answering honestly I came out as 89% Emergent/Postmodern. The rest of my results seemed pretty accurate since I do also have an affinity to certain aspects of Wesleyan theology and to Neo-Orthodoxy (i.e. Karl Barth).

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.

I have a beef with the quiz they have no line for "Eastern Orthodox." So it is obvioulsy a "Western Theological Worldview Quiz." So they make me "non-kowtowing to Rome" Catholic!

Very good point Deacon. It's a sad fact that many Christians in America aren't even yet aware of the existence of the Eastern Orthodox Church. I know I only became marginally aware of it once I got to college and didn't really discover what it was all about until grad school.
