Which religion?

Lifted from E.R. over at Erudite Redneck. Take the quiz yourself and see what you get -- are you surprised?

You scored as Christianity. Your views are most similar to those of Christianity. Do more research on Christianity and possibly consider being baptized and accepting Jesus, if you aren't already Christian.
Christianity is the second of the Abrahamic faiths; it follows Judaism and is followed by Islam. It differs in its belief of Jesus, as not a prophet nor historical figure, but as God in human form. The Holy Trinity is the concept that God takes three forms: the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost (sometimes called Holy Spirit). Jesus taught the idea of instead of seeking revenge, one should love his or her neighbors and enemies. Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross to save humankind and forgive people's sins.

Now THAT'S interesting!

Something wrong with that link to the quiz. It takes me to my own dashboard. I hope it doesn't take others to my dashboard. I wouldn't want anyone else access to my posts.

Since it won't let me take the quiz, it seems to me, if it says your beliefs are more than 0% Satanism, you might want to re-evaluate your beliefs, but as I say, I haven't taken the quiz so the questions may be loaded. I would feel insulted if it didn't tell me I am 100% Christian.

I'll go find the quiz and take it, and let you know.

Ok, I'm back. Found the quiz and took it. here are my results:

You scored as Christianity.

As I said, if you score higher than 0% on Satanism you might reconsider your belief system. I am pleased.

Well, Mark, aren't you special? hope you don't stumble on your smugness. How dare you.

Mark said...

Sorry. I guess that does sound a little smug. What I mean is that I am pleased that my score came out the way it did.

And if I had scored anything over 0% on Satanism, I would be concerned and it would force me to re-evaluate my belief system.

I answered the questions according to what the Bible says. I believe all the Bible, not just the parts of it that make me feel good. Perhaps that's why I scored 100%. I think a lot of people interpret the Bible according to what they want it to say rather than what it does say and I also think that sometimes they believe that there are parts of it that aren't God's word. My question to them is, and always has been, is: By what criteria does one judge what parts are true and what parts aren't? My contention is that if you can't believe part of it, you can't believe any of it, and if you believe any part of it is true than you have to believe it all is.

So if I believe all the Bible is true and answer the quiz questions accordingly, I will score 100% Christian, which I did.

I did not mean to come across as smug, nor was my intention to insult you or anyone else in ER's amen corner. The quiz is, I believe, intended to make us think about what we truly believe and if necessary, to re-evaluate our individual belief systems. For instance, I am concerned that it says I am 17% pagan. I don't know what question I answered incorrectly for the quiz to reach that conclusion. I will have to re-evaluate.

Cracks me up when Mark parrots back things he's heard others ay, like "amen corner."

Cracks me up less to see a follower of Jesus be so *proud* of his follerness. Since Mark has made the suggestion to me a feew times, I guess I'll shoot it back his way:

Dude, if you're PROUD to be a Christian, that's pretty much a contradiction in terms, and you really SHOULD evaluate your faith, because if you bypass your head totally, and simply parrot back what you think the Bible says, why, all you've learned is a bunch of words.

Grrrr.

Mark, I was going to respond last night to your incredible rudeness, multiplied by your second response. But I thought better of it. I needed to cool down before just tearing into you.

Now, this morning, what I will say to you is this. You should be mighty embarrassed to make your faith stance based on some stupid Internet quiz. You don't know how those few questions were weighted to derive their "divine revelation" about ANYONE'S religion. But nevermind that, you seem determined (I started to say hell-bent) to run to the front of the line, wagging your finger and claiming that anyone that didn't score exactly what you scored should be ashamed.

Well, guess what. I'm not one bit worried about it. I am confident of my salvation. And I know it comes from a position of exploration, not an empty-headed, blind smugness.

I'm not exactly sure why you did parrot that line about "E.R.'s amen corner." I'm sure it was meant to be an insult. Whatever. If you don't like what you read here, don't come back.

Please do not post here again until you learn some manners, Mark.
