Am I a Martin Luther Wannabe?

Theological quizzes are mostly inaccurate and a waste of time, I think. But "Which Theologian Are You?" yielded a reasonably good result when I took it.


By answering 30 poorly articulated questions, I was able to discover that I am a copycat of . . .


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

Martin Luther
80%

Anselm
80%
John Calvin
73%
Jonathan Edwards
67%
Friedrich Schleiermacher
53%
Karl Barth
53%
Augustine
33%
Charles Finney
33%
J├╝rgen Moltmann
27%
Paul Tillich
27%



I have to say, though, I don't appreciate the suggestion that I resemble Schleiermacher or Finney in any sense. I'm deeply offended by the mere suggestion of it. But the top 4 results are pretty accurate, and if Augustine was moved to 4th place the first 5 would be mostly correct.



Take the quiz and let us know which theologian you supposedly resemble.

  1. You also scored 55% Rob Bell
    and 88% Benny Hinn I'll bet. You don't need to be ashamed of it, you are among friends here

  2. Actually, another quiz I took before this one rated me as very strongly Wesleyan/Holiness and Charismatic, and only a little bit Reformed! The way they word the questions is usually stereotypical and doesn't leave much room for nuance. It's a rather poor way to gauge one's real theological commitments and ideas.

    Anyway, take 5 minutes to do the quiz that is linked in the post and let me know how you fare! I'm bursting with curiosity.

    Blessings,

  4. See, the Finney part is unreliable.
