Online Religion/denomination Test

I just took a world religions test at: http://selectsmart.com/RELIGION/
I can't believe I'm a Quaker according to this, not that I really disagree with them, those protestant mystics, but I guess my inner light was shining today (maybe it had to do with the fact that I just read a bunch of Quaker theology this morning...strange coincidence really). Oh well, as long as my 2 least favourite Religions, Islam and Secular Humanism aren't in my top 10, I'm happy.

1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Seventh Day Adventist (86%)
3. Mainline - Conservative Christian Protestant (83%)
4. Eastern Orthodox (83%)
5. Roman Catholic (83%)
6. Mainline - Liberal Christian Protestants (71%)
7. Liberal Quakers (55%)
8. Hinduism (46%)
9. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (45%)
10. Unitarian Universalism (42%)
11. Orthodox Judaism (40%)
12. Islam (37%)
13. Jehovah's Witness (35%)
14. Jainism (34%)
15. Bahai (33%)
16. Sikhism (33%)
17. Theravada Buddhism (32%)
18. Mahayana Buddhism (31%)
19. Reform Judaism (27%)
20. Neo-Pagan (23%)
21. Taoism (22%)
22. Secular Humanism (21%)
23. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (20%)
24. New Age (19%)
25. Non-theist (14%)
26. Scientology (12%)
27. New Thought (7%)

My Next Denomination Results were from: http://www.selectsmart.com/FREE/select.php?client=denom

#1 Anglican
#2 Baptist
#3 Methodist (United Methodist Church)
#4 Pentecostal
#5 Methodist ( Weslyian church)
#6 Presbyterian (USA)
#7 Seventh day adventist
#8 Catholic
#9 Presbyterian (AUS)
#10 Quaker
#11 Lutheran (LCMS)
#12 Orthodox
#13 Jehovahs witness
#14 Lutheran (ELCA)
#15 Mormonism

Finally I took the test of my theology from:http://quizfarm.com/test.php?q_id=43870
I got Karl Barth and it said:

You scored as a 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 86%
Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 82%
Emergent/Postmodern 64%
Reformed Evangelical 57%
Fundamentalist 54%
Roman Catholic 46%
Charismatic/Pentecostal 39%
Classical Liberal 29%
Modern Liberal 14%

The final Test on theology was most extensive and my favourite and easiest to answer. I guess from all these varied results I see the commonality that I fit into the Anglican, Baptist, Wesleyan/Methodist churches alright I guess, and I think the quaker/friends/mennonite deal that comes up is that I'm just a pacifist.

But then again, 2 weeks ago I was hardcore Calvinist, so who knows where I'll end up.

    I really wanted to say baptism is required, but since I haven't been baptized, that wouldn't work, and that makes it works, not faith...Which I am a bit shaky on actually.
    I took the quiz once, and was a mainline conservative, then went back and changed the priority of some things and got these results.

  2. Ya I have a pragmatic view of faith and works vs. faith alone soteriology now. I think the bible works with ideals when it talks about salvation, so ideally you have faith, works, love, baptized, and partake in communion, but I guess if I was forced to say what is the bare minimum i'd say faith, though I don't think God works that way.
