results from the farm

Just for a little fun at the end of a long day, I decided to take a few theological quizzes over at QuizFarm. Granted, many of the questions (and the premises within them) are a tad generalized and the coverage of the quizzes could have been more exhaustive; but seriously: they’re just for fun.

What is your eschatology?

You Scored as Amillennialist. Amillennialism believes that the 1000 year reign is not literal but figurative, and that Christ began to reign at his ascension. People take some prophetic scripture far too literally in your view.

95%  Amillennialist
75%  Moltmann Eschatology
60%  Postmillennialist
50%  Preterist
30%  Premillennialist
15%  Dispensationalist
10%  Left Behind

*NB: Looks like I need to try harder to reduce the last three, especially the final two.

Which theologian are you?

You Scored as Anselm. Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period.He sees man primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read ‘Cur Deus Homo?’

80%  Anselm
73%  Jonathan Edwards
67%  Friederich Schleiermacher
60%  John Calvin
53%  Karl Barth
47%  Jürgen Moltmann
40%  Charles Finney
33%  Paul Tillich
27%  Augustine
13%  Martin Luther

*NB: That’s not bad company to keep. Could be much, much worse.

What is your theological perspective (or worldview)?

You Scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan. You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God’s grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavily by John Wesley and the Methodists.

86%  Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan
61%  Neo-orthodox
57%  Emergent/Postmodern
39%  Charismatic/Pentecostal
36%  Classical Liberal
32%  Fundamentalist
29%  Reformed Evangelical
25%  Roman Catholic
18%  Modern Liberal

*NB: This outcome was a bit of a surprise, especially the second and third.

(And just for good measure) Are you a heretic?

You Scored as Chalcedon compliant. Congratulations, you’re not a heretic. You believe that Jesus is truly God and truly man and like us in every respect, apart from sin. Officially approved in 451.

92%  Chalcedon compliant
83%  Pelagianism
42%  Monophysitism
33%  Nestorianism
25%  Monarchianism
8%  Socinianism
8%  Gnosticism
8%  Adoptionist
0%  Albigensianism
0%  Donatism
0%  Modalism
0%  Arianism
0%  Docetism

*NB: Good grief. I knew I had some semi-Pelagian tendencies, but I didn’t think they were that pervasive. The triad of 8%, yeah that’s just crap; I know for a fact that I reject all three of those.

Now your turn.  How do you fare?

    Monarchianism – 17%
    Apollanarian – 17%

    I was going for 100% Socinian, and this is what I got on the “Are you a heretic?” quiz:

    Monarchianism 67%
    Pelagianism 67%
    Gnosticism 58%
    Socinianism 50%
    Adoptionist 42%
    Arianism 33%
    Nestorianism 33%
    Docetism 33%
    Donatism 25%
    Albigensianism 17%
    Modalism 0%
    Apollanarian 0%
    Monophysitism 0%
    Chalcedon compliant 0%

    The questions are all weighted in terms of controversies I don’t care about. It was impossible to impress clearly enough to this system that I was trying to assert Jesus is only a man and only the Father is God. I have no clue how Nestorianism even got in there.

  3. Junly

    I also don’t get how you got 80% Pelagianism and I only got 67%. Is it because they’re counting Trinitarianism as part of Pelagianism?

  4. Junly

    Which theologian are you? is totally broke.

    Friedrich Schleiermacher 73%
    Jürgen Moltmann 60%
    Augustine 47%

    Then Luther and Finney both 33%. How in the world did Augustine get above Finney? And Moltmann, really?
