Hey! I'm A Reformed Evangelical!

You scored as Reformed Evangelical. You are a Reformed Evangelical. You take the Bible very seriously because it is God's Word. You most likely hold to TULIP and are sceptical about the possibilities of universal atonement or resistible grace. The most important thing the Church can do is make sure people hear how they can go to heaven when they die.

Jeremy,
what does HT: Rose Cole mean? (I'm slow, I don't get the "HT")

Jeremy Weaver said...

I don't get the HT either. It's basically just saying that I got the content for the post from Rose.

Gummby said...

"Hat Tip," as in, thanks.

I scored a 96% on Reformed, but then I always was a good test taker. Think any of those questions will be on the final exam?

I hope not.
I'm kind of worried about my Neo Orthodox tendencies. Am I going to hell with Karl Barth and Emil Brunner?
Not to mention 71% Wesleyan.

Jeremy Weaver said...

I'm going to have to take the test again.
I know I'm more Calvinistic than you guys.

John said...

I was pretty pleased with my score! I got 100% Reformed! So I got an A++!!!!! I knew I would ace it!

Gummby said...

Don't worry. I'm sure it's the test.

Does this say anything about me? Probably not enough!

Doxo,
These tests aren't perfect at all. If the tests were more comprehensive then you wouldn't have to worry about the neo-orthodox.

I scored the same

Daniel said...

I found the test skewed in that infant baptism was associated with being reformed (which suggests that reformed baptists are not reformed).

Sigh.

That makes sense, though I too was displeased at the question about infant baptism.

Some of the questions were kind of vague:

"God says it. I believe it. That settles it."- I said yes, but that doesn't mean that I am against making sure I am understanding Scripture correctly rather than through man-made-tradition glasses.

"There is little or no human element in the Bible, it is a divine book"-

from the Chicago Statement:

"We affirm that inspiration was the work in which God by His Spirit, through human writers, gave us His Word. The origin of Scripture is divine. The mode of divine inspiration remains largely a mystery to us...We affirm that God in His Work of inspiration utilized the distinctive personalities and literary styles of the writers whom He had chosen and prepared...We deny that God, in causing these writers to use the very words that He chose, overrode their personalities...We affirm that inspiration, strictly speaking, applies only to the autographic text of Scripture, which in the providence of God can be ascertained from available manuscripts with great accuracy. We further affirm that copies and translations of Scripture are the Word of God to the extent that they faithfully represent the original."

"Miracles are still commonplace today, and are very important"- I'm assuming they mean charismatic sort of miracles and not something vague like "God working in the world today."

"Karl Barth's theology is hugely important"- something can be important and still be rubbish...That's probably where all our "neo orthodox" points are coming in.

"I have much to learn from other Christian traditions and practices outside my own"- what are they including as "Christian traditions"?

"The use of spiritual gifts in worship is central"- do they have in mind the sign gifts or spiritual gifts in general? I sure would hope the pastor has been gifted as a pastor.

"Preaching the word is more important than worship"- preaching and hearing the Word isn't worship?!

"Revival is what the church needs more than anything else"- how are they defining "revival"?

"We cannot understand God without looking first at humanity"-

to quote Calvin:

"Our wisdom, in so far as it ought to be deemed true and solid Wisdom, consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves. But as these are connected together by many ties, it is not easy to determine which of the two precedes and gives birth to the other."

Jeremy Weaver said...

Exactly Marie!
Yes Barth's works are important.
There is human element in the Bible.
The highest form of worship is hearing and doing the Word.
Thanks for the comment.

I had thought about going through those questions and answering the way they needed to be answered but I'll take your blood and sweat over mine.
:-)

For what it's worth, John Babri, I probably could have scored 100%Reformed Evangelical too, if I had played along with the stereotypes!
:-)

pilgrim said...

I believe some of the questions were skewde as well--especially the infant baptism one--I had a small bit show up for Catholicism--and I believe that was why.

étrangère said...

Rubbish test *goes away and sulks*. I'm NOT a Wesleyan. Never heard anything so daft. It's surely because I was a pedant and answered the questions honestly with respect to that (I see mariep picked up on that) rather than with what they were obviously leading to or stereotyping. I hate false dichotomies and stereotypes.

And never mind all you reformed baptists - I'm a reformed paedobaptist and couldn't even score on that one cos they didn't even put the question right for that: all infants?? any infants?!

Rubbish test. I'm away off to peel potatoes. If God gives me the grace so to do.
