The remaining religious memes

- as found through wryelle:

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.




Classical Liberal


Roman Catholic


Modern Liberal


Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan


Neo orthodox




Reformed Evangelical




What's your theological worldview?
created with QuizFarm.com

You scored as J�rgen Moltmann. The problem of evil is central to your thought, and only a crucified God can show that God is not indifferent to human suffering. Christian discipleship means identifying with suffering but also anticipating the new creation of all things that God will bring about.


J�rgen Moltmann


Paul Tillich


Karl Barth


Charles Finney


Friedrich Schleiermacher


Martin Luther


John Calvin


Jonathan Edwards






Which theologian are you?

I have heard of neither this theological stance nor this theologian, which probably shows nothing more than that I am not on the wavelength of the author of these quizzes.

"...only a crucified God can show that God is not indifferent to human suffering." Actually, we were shown a filmstrip at school which went a long way to establishing that very same thing.
If it helps, I have taken an active interest in theology, but I haven't heard of... Moltmann, either - nor Charles Finney or Jonathan Edwards (I HAVE heard of the annoying religious athlete, and used to have pictures of his opponents on my wall).
Karl Barth (sounds like a cockney in a shower store, doesn't it?) 100% and Anselm 100%, in my case, but at least I wasn't Sir Stafford for once.

My father has a book by Paul Tillich on his shelf, left over from his days as a Methodist lay preacher. I haven't read it; the blurb describes it as a tirade against the proclaimed certainties of the scientific age, or something. It's a Pelican from the early 1960s.

I had never heared of Moltmann either. I would expect an atheist to get postmodernism (or possibly modern liberal) on the former quiz - but it seems an odd match with your theologian.

The theologian meme seems to give much odder results than the theological stance meme.

A contradiction?

How amusing... I came out as (a) Roman Catholic and (b) Martin Luther.

On the heresy test I was 100% Chalcedon compliant. (And for what it's worth, I would probably describe myself as an Anglo-Catholic which might explain the tension in these various results!)

Re: A contradiction?

Were there any contradictions between the author's view of Catholicism and their characterisation of Luther?

rustica has already condemned me to the stake after I pointed out that Chalcedon compliance featured nowhere in my heresy profile; but that isn't so surprising given my general areligiosity.
