No real surprises here, I suppose, although I would have liked the categories to be a little cleaner, and more representative of the breadth of Christian traditions (Eastern Orthodoxy doesn’t seem to be an option, for example). If you’re interested, please take the quiz and feel free to post your results below.

  • I really didn’t like the way the questions were asked on this quiz (I didn’t think that it made enough room for nuances within a tradition), but here are my results; hat tip to Jordan Ballor of the Acton Institute’s Power Blog for this one…

  • Apparently I’m not as reformed as I thought.

    [i]You scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan.

    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.[/i]
