Paul Tillich!? Egads man, and you admit this on an Orthodox message board?ÂÂ  ;DÂÂ  Oh wait, it said I was either Calvin or Barth (both at 87%)! I think that's interesting that an Orthodox Christian (supposedly semi-Pelagian according to some) would be compared to Calvin to closely. Regarding the quiz, some of the questions were difficult to answer, as the questions themselves were either worded in a difficult way, or even had theological errors in them that the creator of the quiz was apparently unaware of (e.g., the very first one asks about Christ descending into hell, which would be difficult considering that there was no hell to descend to, but rather he descended to hades.) It was an enjoyable one to take, though.

I most closely resembled Karl Barth?  I have never read anything about this man.  But I will say that the questions were very tricky.  Many started off well...but then had a catch at the end. :-\

Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period.He sees man's primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read 'Cur Deus Homo?'

Loaded questions indeed  :D

I'm apparently the only one to have Schleiermacher first. Interesting.

"You seek to make inner feeling and awareness of God the centre of your theology, which is the foundation of liberalism. Unfortunately, atheists are quick to accuse you of simply projecting humanity onto 'God' and liberalism never really recovers."

"The papacy is a tool of the devil"

That question rocks!ÂÂ  :D

And the answer is:

You scored as Martin Luther.ÂÂ  

The daddy of the Reformation. You are opposed to any Catholic ideas of works-salvation and see the scriptures as being primarily authoritative.

Huh!

Anselm - 93%
Karl Barth - 87%
John Calvin - 87%
Martin Luther - 80%
Augustine - 73%
Friedrich Schleiermacher - 67%
Jonathan Edwards - 60%
Paul Tillich - 33%
Charles Finney - 33%
J Moltmann - 33%

Though I think the questions were loaded (and I'm willing to guess the "possible results" were relatively narrow, if only being singularly western), I suppose there is a lot of truth to the results I get, at least in so far as they go.  The amateur-philosopher in me cannot avoid the issue of "predestination", and the westerner in me cannot avoid the judicial metaphor/paradigm that the Scriptures provide for discussing the work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

You scored as Paul Tillich. 


 
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.

Augustine??  Why didn't you score as "Augustine"?!  btw, you're right, the questions themselves already presuppose a Western paradigm.  These are all man-centered questions (Western), rather than God-centered questions (Eastern).  Thus, if you're only answering man-centered questions, yuo'll only get man-centered answers.  Thus all the Protestant theologians.

Beavis,

I probably had so many Protestant thinkers early on in my list because of the papacy question (though I doubt I was as hostile as some here...ahem Tom, ahem, cough, cough, wink) and a few others key questions which probably were considered (by the one who composed the quiz) as being halmarks of the Reformation (when in reality, they pretty much characterize anyone who talks about the Lord Jesus and is not a Roman Catholic.)

As for the Anselm thing...again, some key "damned if you do, damned if you don't" type questions.  Though, like I said, I guess there are probably some peculiarlties of my outlook which, when stacked by loaded questions, would give that result.

I scored as Karl Barth

Which is funny because in the evangelical seminary I graduated from he was considered a bad guy liberal; I always thought in his historical context, he was a pretty good guy (but that was one of those thoughts you kept to yourself)

But as I was learning about Orthodoxy early on, needing a category to place some of the things I was learning in (bear with me here, as a protestant you nedd a category for EVERYTHING) I thought, this sounds kind of like Karl Barth!

I scored 93% Anselm.  I've never read any of his stuff either.  But interestingly enough, there was a TV mini series made here in Australia in the 90's called "Brides of Christ" - a story about women becoming Catholic nuns, and living through the 60's etc.  Anyway, one of the main postulants, who became a nun always had a problem with "saints starting with A" - and one of them was Anselm.  But in the end, she had a great appreciation for him and his writings.  Oh well ... that's really got nothing to do with this questionnaire, just a side thought  ::)

I would think, Anselm was rather philosopher than theologian.  He is the author of the (in)famous "ontological proof of existence of God".

I agree with those of you who said that these questions were tricky...there were many that I felt, were quite frankly, asking the wrong question.  But I had to give an answer, so when I didn't really like the question, I picked one that would be in the middle, as a neither agree nor disagree.  Anyway, these are my top four.

1) Blessed Augustine 93%

2)Karl Barth 93%, have no idea who that is

3)Anselm 80%

4)Martin Luther 67%

Barth was a modern Protestant theologian who led a reaction against the liberal theology that was common in his day.  He was my #1, with 100%.  (Luther, Calvin and St. Augustine tied for second, at 67%.

You scored as Augustine. 

You have a big view of God and also take human sin and depravity very seriously. Predestination is important for you.

Paul Tillich                      0%

I don't think I believe in predestination, but aparrently I do. Maybe I was destined to disagree with this quiz.... But yea, I'm Augustine with a splice of Calvin and Barth... That's Hot....

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.

Didn't know him. But I've been reading Ernst Bloch's works, particularly "Philosophy of Renaissance" lately and Bloch is thought as a strong influence of his...... Still, this isn't an explanation, of course.  :)

Augustine all the way baby!
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

50% or more of the questions in this quiz are posited from an erroneous starting point.

I'm not so crazy about the limited selection of ending points either.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I agree with you,Prav-bob and Ialmisry. I had a very difficult time relating to most of the questions.

You Scored as Anselm

Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period.He sees man's primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read 'Cur Deus Homo?'

Anselm   87%
Augustine   80%
Calvin   73%

Hmm, never heard of Anselm. I am very upset and disturbed however that Calvin is so high up on my results.

Is there a test with Orthodox theologians?

Mine said: "You scored as Augustine." But the percentage results broke down like this:

Friedrich Schleiermacher - 73%
Augustine - 73%
Karl Barth - 67%
Anselm - 67%
John Calvin - 60%
Martin Luther - 60%
Charles Finney - 47%
Jürgen Moltmann - 40%
Paul Tillich - 40%
Jonathan Edwards - 33%

I'm not too familiar with Schleiermacher. Just glad I didn't score as Charles Finney!

Another Augustine here:

You Scored as Augustine

You have a big view of God and also take human sin and depravity very seriously. Predestination is important for you.

Augustine    
        80%
Karl Barth    
   67%
Charles Finney    
   60%
Anselm    
   47%
John Calvin    
   40%
Paul Tillich    
   33%
Friedrich Schleiermacher    
   33%
Jonathan Edwards    
   27%
Jürgen Moltmann    
   20%
Martin Luther    
   20%

Is my thinking Orthodox-friendly? I don't know who 4 of these guys are.
