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.

My scores?

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.

Which theologian are you?
created with QuizFarm.com

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.

    Nee kyk Ronald, as jou Roman Catholic soveel sterker as Reformed Evangelical is…🙂

  7. Steve Hayes Says:

    You can see my results for theologians here, and for theological views here.

    Both tests were horribly biased, chauvinist and ethnocentric!

  8. cobus Says:

    Thanx Steve
    I were suspecting a somewhat critical reaction from you:-)

    It’s really sad that we don’t really have the voices of woman from througout the history of the church.

    What bothered me wat the fact that it felt like simply a test for Systematic Theology… might be more than that

    Hierdie evangeliese onderrok van my begin my so bietjie pla, ag maar darem weet julle dat ek geen assosiasie met die EI het nie😛.

    Verder is ek effe geskok oor my 27% persent Calvynigheid, ek dring aan op ‘n hermerk! O askies jammer ek sal nie weer nie! Jammer dat ek lewe…

  10. cobus Says:

    toemaar, die wat by tuks swot het almal so geneigdheid:-) As die EI daarvan hoor sal hulle dalk maar die storie los


  11. Okay, hier is dit…stem jy saam?

  13. cobus Says:

    Would have been nice to know how the question was set up, and exactly what definitions are linked to various theological worldviews. For example, I think the idea behind Reformed Evangelical, is the very conservative, traditional view of being Reformed.

    Let’s see if a few more people post results, but looks like Emergent/Postmodern, Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan might be the dominant view for the TUKS theological students:-)

  14. Aldi Says:

    Hier’s my uitslag, maar ek het meer as die helfte van die terme nie verstaan nie.

    Paul Tillich sought to express Christian truth in an existentialist way. Our primary problem is alienation from the ground of our being, so that our life is meaningless. Great for psychotherapy, but no longer very influential.
