How Vital Is Karl Barth to YOU?

Another clever item stolen from Nolan Dynamite. This time, it's a quiz to determine where you stand theologically:

Here's my profile:

You scored as Neo orthodox. You are neo-orthodox. You reject the human-centredness and scepticism of liberal theology, but neither do you go to the other extreme and make the Bible the central issue for faith. You believe that Christ is God's most important revelation to humanity, and the Trinity is hugely important in your theology. The Bible is also important because it points us to the revelation of Christ. You are influenced by Karl Barth and P T Forsyth.

Neo orthodox


Reformed Evangelical


Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan






Classical Liberal


Roman Catholic




Modern Liberal


What's your theological worldview?

Gee...I'm "Neoorthodox / Reformed." I'm not quote sure how to take this. Does this mean I'm a pretty conventional mainline Protestant, or that I should start looking for tall, funny hats and praying in Serbo-Croatian? I'm almost as much Wesleyan, but I guess the Arminians haven't completely gotten me yet--there's still more than a touch of Calvinism left. I like Karl Barth just fine, but who the heck is P.T. Forsyth? Barnum before he joined the circus? I guess it just means I'm confused... One thing is clear, however: if you're a modern Liberal Catholic Holy Roller, steer clear of me!

Nolan--big surprise--was 89% Evangelical Holiness / Weslyan. I guess that's a good thing in a Methodist minister. Where do you stand?

Chefjef--I challenge you! Take the quiz.

PS: Bishop Spong is kinda like Liberation Theology Lite meets Queer Eye. I had to look him up, too.
