At the risk of over-posting, I wanted to report the results of the Belief-O-Matic quiz I took again at the suggestion of Jon. I took this once many years ago and pretty much scored the same. If you’ve never taken it, give it a try.

Your Results: The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.

1. Liberal Quakers (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
3. Secular Humanism (90%)
4. Neo-Pagan (83%)
5. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (83%)
6. New Age (79%)
7. Theravada Buddhism (77%)
8. Mahayana Buddhism (71%)
9. Taoism (69%)
10. Reform Judaism (65%)
11. New Thought (60%)
12. Nontheist (60%)
13. Scientology (58%)
14. Orthodox Quaker (57%)
15. Jainism (55%)
16. Bahá’í Faith (52%)
17. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (45%)
18. Sikhism (41%)
19. Hinduism (40%)
20. Islam (27%)
21. Orthodox Judaism (27%)
22. Seventh Day Adventist (27%)
23. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (23%)
24. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (22%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (20%)
26. Roman Catholic (20%)
27. Jehovah’s Witness (11%)

Liberal Quaker. Doesn’t sound quite a cool as emergent/postmodern, does it? Jon pointed out that this quiz (as opposed to the Theological Worldview quiz) goes beyond Christianity. It is nice to see how one’s beliefs stack up to other traditions.

Oh, and I added a few clips from Jesus Camp to my VodPod (below left) if you want to check it out….

Yikes! Your score is almost exactly the same as mine!!!!
Is that bad???
PS: A bit of a tall order, but in your own words HH, how would you describe God?

Comment by Jon

Not bad at all! I’ll try to give you my description of God soon, but for now, I’ll quote James Luther Adams: “…there is a sustaining loving, creative, judging, forgiving, transforming power ushering in a new community. This power is not made with human hands and is not under human control.” Something like that.
