Diagnose Your Theology: Julian is 'emerging'...?

This is funny stuff... you should try it out. Not sure exactly how accurate it is, but it's funny nonetheless. Here's what I got:

You scored as Reformed Evangelical. "You are a Reformed Evangelical. You take the Bible very seriously because it is God's Word. You most likely hold to TULIP and are sceptical about the possibilities of universal atonement or resistible grace. The most important thing the Church can do is make sure people hear how they can go to heaven when they die."

No wonder we go to the same church... and a good church at that! :-)

I was wondering how I got so liberal, but then I saw how neo orthodox you are, and that made me feel better :-)

I wonder where my neo-orthodoxy came from? I haven't even read any of Karl Barth!

(Well, ok, I read vol 1. of "Essentials of Evangelical Theology" for a Tyndale course I never took. That book is by Bloesch, who is a big Barth fan, although he considers Barth to be a universalist.)

I know a good Barth story though.

The story is that a tourist visiting Barth's home city (Vienna?) was travelling on a city bus one morning. He was bubbling to the bearded man beside him about how wonderful the city was. At one point he said, "Do you realize that this is the home of the famous theologian Karl Barth?!"

The man beside him, who was Karl Barth himself, replied "I know. I shave him every day."

The tourist went home and told the rest of his family that he had met Karl Barth's barber.

here is my results

"You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God's grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists."
