Emergent, am I?

Nancy, over at Along the Way, has this fascinating link to a Theological Worldview quiz.

Like her, I turned out to be an Emergent / Postmodern! Only slight problem is, I'm 18% fundamentalist, which is a bit of a shock, I must say...

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 know I ought to know the man in the picture, Nancy, only my mind's gone blank. Funny thing is, I'm bald and grey bearded, too... If this is an essential qualification for male emergent / postmoderns, what is the equivalent requirement for females???

  2. I posted that before I read GailNHB's excellent, godly comment on Nancy's original post (see link above) but I'd really encourage you to click over and read it for yourself!
