which theologian are you:-)
September 2, 2007
On a lighter note! I heard about the quiz from Andrew Jones. Take 5 minutes, and see as what theologian you would score. Come on, not just the ‘official theologians’, but everyone. It’s fun, do it for the fun.
And do this one as well, this will score your ‘Theological Worldview’.
Yes, I know it’s putting labels around people’s necks and all. But we can see this as a positive way or looking at ourselves and embracing our differences as well.
Which theologian: Jürgen Moltmann (Shouldn’t have been a surprise thought, I’ve always liked what I heard about the guy. Maybe now would be a good time to finally get to reading his stuff). My close link to John Calvin might surprise some of you?
Which theological worldview: Emergent/Postmodern (Well, not really surprising either). My close link to the Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan tradition might surprise you?
So, take the test, leave a comment letting us know what you scored as. I don’t know how accurate it is, but it seemed pretty accurate for me. Let us know your score!
|You scored as Jürgen 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.
|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.
