What's Your Theological Worldview?

You scored as Emergent/Postmodern. You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don't think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

I took it twice ... the questions are limited ... so, it's between Emergent/Postmodern & Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan based on the "limitations of the quiz" (somehow there was no emergent/evangelical/Lutheran/post-colonial category *grin*). As usual, it's an interesting exercise but I hold the conclusions loosely. :-)

I wonder whether I'll be struck off any speakers list ... after this test. At least drop me an email to ask for my "actual" & "work in progress" positions would be nice :-)

I would like to see myself as one who seeks to live an integrated dance of <-- Trinitarian, Christ-centred, Spirit-shaped, Scripture-saturated, Church-connected, Historically-appreciative, "in the World not of the World & bless the World", life-long learning ... --> Orthodoxy, Orthopathy and Orthopraxis!

Yeah, I agree that we have to hold these "tests" rather loosely. Many times, it could be due to our realisation of what we are that shaped our answers. It's ironically the other way round. ;)

Don't think you'll be "struck" off any speaker list...I've listened to your message a couple of times (or more) during my MMU CF times. And, I always return home with something of a larger perspective than I hoped from other speakers. (no offense to other speakers though!)

But hey, I'll be glad to know your "actual work in progress" in this context of a "theological worldview". I do conceive that emergent Malaysian (yes, in our context of our culture) is something more subtle than what I've view as battles fought on the other side of the globe. I love your "integrated dance" ideology as it's relevant, engaging and changing, according to current trends while still maintaining much of the lost practices and traditions, our doctrinal truths.
