    My #2 is: Roman Catholic Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Many will be shocked that the bar was almost equal to my #1
 
Does this mean that you are a closet Roman Catholic?

Can we can some sort of Severian revivification started for this thread, pronto? Seems such an awful shame to let these sugary treats wither in obscurity. . .

My diagnosis:
1. Eastern Orthodox Church (100%)  [Home, sweet home]
2. Roman Catholic Church (90%)  [Very close, as it was in real life. Where I would've ended up if Orthodoxy hadn't been an option; seriously, much respect to the RCs]
3. Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (86%)  [I'd rather not "put Jimmy in the oven"]
4. Evangelical Lutheran Church (76%)  [Meeh]
5. Episcopal/Anglican Church (66%)   [Perhaps an Anglo-Catholic church]
6. Mormonism (60%)   [The youtube propaganda must be working]
7. Methodist/Wesleyan Church (56%)   [My childhood church! I adore John Wesley. If I were to go back to Protestantism, it would likely be to a church within the Wesleyan tradition]
8. Church of Christ (56%)   [No. No. No.]
9. International Church of Christ (56%)   [The whole world over: no, no, no]
10. United Pentecostal Church (56%)   [I just can't stomach the charismatic movement]
11. Mennonite Brethren(46%)   [Integrity written all over it]
12. Free Will Baptist (46%)   [I'll choose to pass this one over]
13. Assemblies of God (46%)      
14. Presbyterian Church in America/Orthodox Presbyterian Church (40%)
15. Reformed Churches (40%)   [Not elected]
16. Orthodox Quakerism (36%)   [The Quakers have always fascinated me]
17. Seventh-Day Adventist (36%)      
18. Southern Baptist (36%)   [Huh. I'm surprised I didn't score higher with these guys]
19. Presbyterian Church USA (30%)      
20. Reformed Baptist (30%)      
21. Jehovah's Witness (20%)   [There are just too many interesting cults to settle for the position of glorified door-to-door salesman]
22. Liberal Quakerism (10%)
23. Unitarian Universalism (4%)
24. Unity Church (0%)  

Good test; fun times. It's also nice to find a thread where folks aren't bashing their former faiths in the extreme. I get rather irked when I see converts constantly portraying Protestantism as completely anemic. There are some stunning expressions of faith to be found in these traditions; not nearly as much so as in Orthodoxy, granted, but still oases in their own right. I love and am thankful for my Protestant past, but I look forward to a future, God willing, in the Church.

Also: does anyone know along what lines the various Hussite churches would fall in such a quiz?

Well, that was a fun and very revealing quiz! Cheesy  I thought Orthodox would come out on top, though I wasn't expecting a 100% match!  I'm even more surprised that Roman Catholic rated at 100% as I answered negative to one question based on a key RC doctrine.  The denom I'm currently affiliated with only rated in the fifties.

interesting quiz.
 Smiley

these were my top 6:
Orthodox Church (100%)
Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (92%)      
Evangelical Lutheran Church (86%)      
Roman Catholic Church (86%)   
Episcopal/Anglican Church (72%)      
Methodist/Wesleyan Church (69%)      

i have edited the top one, as they didn't distinguish between different orthodox churches, so nor will i.
i included methodist as this was my 1st church as a small child. i think i would have scored higher if it had been a british quiz coz the brits got john wesley who was arminian (not too far from the orthodox doctrine) and the americans got whitfield (sorry, forgot his 1st name) who was a calvinist.

i hope no one actually uses it to decide which church to go too!
that would be very nerdy to trust the computer...

2. Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod (100%)
3. Evangelical Lutheran Church (93%)
4. Roman Catholic (85%)
5. Church of Christ (77%)

I'll retake it when I'm at a laptop. I just did it on my iPad so I couldn't adjust the bars on importance. I'm curious to see how that affects my results.

yeah, maybe the site admin is from LCMS and wants to make the point that that church is 'orthodox'.

In this quiz, I'm sure if you have an Orthodox majority you will have a Catholic majority too.

They need to add a couple of more questions to distinguish better between EO and RC.
For example:
1. Do you agree that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and from the Son?
2. Do you believe in Purgatory?
3. Do you agree with playing instrumental music, such as organ music, during Church services?

My top 5 results:

1. Eastern Orthodox Church - 100%
2. LCMS - 97%
3. RCC - 97%
4. ELC - 92% (Not really seeing how I agree 92% with such a liberal denomination)
5. Episcopal - 83% (ditto)

it's interesting to see that LCMS is really high, mostly second, on almost everyone's results

If they had had a "Do you hate Martin Luther?" question, I'm sure my Lutheran score would have been lower.

So I took it again roleplaying as the opposite of myself (basically extremely liberal theologically):

1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)      
2. Unity Church (89%)      
3. Liberal Quakerism (78%)      
4. Seventh-Day Adventist (45%)      
5. Assemblies of God (23%)   
...
14. Eastern Orthodox Church (12%)
...
23. Roman Catholic Church (0%)

I am not sure why question 1 would make you laugh except that an EO would phrase the question differently - say 1 (EO) Do you agree that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father alone and not from the Father and from the Son.
Anyway, here are a few more questions which could be asked to distinguish between EO and RC:
Do you agree, disagree or no opinion on the following:
4. The Roman Pope is the infallible head of the Church.
5. There is a clear distinction between venial and mortal sin.
6. In making the sign of the cross, the righthand touches the left shoulder first, and the right shoulder after that.
RC would agree with 4,5,6; EO disagree. The questions could be worded differently if you wanted to set it up so that EO would agree (and RC disagree). For example:
4.(EO) There is no one person who is the infallible head of the Church.
5.(EO) There is no clear distinction between venial and mortal sin.
6. (EO)  In making the sign of the cross, the righthand touches the right shoulder first, and the left shoulder after that.
EO would agree with 4(EO), 5(EO), 6(EO).

Dude, the sign of the cross is not a matter of Faith, it's a matter of Practice.
Besides, WRO and OO both do the sign of the cross from left to right.

Correct. It is just a question to be added to the others.
In Yugoslavia, when they wanted to see who was RC and who was EO, they would ask the boys to make the sign of the cross. That gave them their answer.

Yes, "stanley123," "I believe...in the Holy Spirit...Who proceeds from the Father," directly.  I laughed because the question goes right to the RC's jugular, the "filioque," controversy which is the symbol of what divides us.

  My #1 is: Eastern Orthodox Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
No suprise.
  My #2 is: Roman Catholic Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Many will be shocked that the bar was almost equal to my #1
  My #3 is: Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #4 is: Evangelical Lutheran Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
I was baptized into this, but the parish I was in was more of the MO Synod mind (many went that route when the ELCA was formed and sent the parish a woman pastor. I was gone by then).
  My #5 is: International Church of Christ    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Is this the Instrumental CC? I could see that.
  My #6 is: Episcopal/Anglican Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Btw, the bar is about half way here.
  My #7 is: Mormonism    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Eekh. Scary!
  My #8 is: Church of Christ    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #9 is: Methodist/Wesleyan Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.

  My #12 is: Free Will Baptist    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #13 is: Mennonite Brethren    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #14 is: Orthodox Quakerism    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
It is about a quarter here.
  My #15 is: Presbyterian Church in America/Orthodox Presbyterian Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #16 is: Reformed Churches    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #17 is: Seventh-Day Adventist    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #18 is: Southern Baptist    Selected books, bargains, etc.

Here it drops down to about a tenth.
  My #20 is: Reformed Baptist    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #21 is: Jehovah's Witness    Selected books, bargains, etc. 
From here down it is negligible results.
  My #22 is: Liberal Quakerism    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #23 is: Unitarian Universalism    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #24 is:

   Eastern Orthodox Church (100%)      


         Roman Catholic Church (97%)      


         Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (96%)      


         Evangelical Lutheran Church (91%)

Not much change it seems. Which of course, is why I cling to Orthodoxy.
