My theological worldview, or something like it...

Saw this on Sivin's blog, and I took the quiz. So here are my results!

On the whole I am happy with the result, mainly that Roman Catholic and Neo Orthodox had high scores. (However, if you've read Brian McLaren's A New Kind of Christian trilogy, you'd realise that 'Neo' and 'Orthodox' have little in common, heheheh). Besides, I never considered myself remotely liberal.



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.
