    That test is more a test to see if you are a fundamental, politically-hyperconservative thinker, rather than a test for a broad-based biblical worldview.

    Certainly, they have a biblical worldview (not necessarily good one), but it is not a test that merely checks your biblical outlook. Otherwise why would they ask non-biblically-related agree/disagree questions like:
    • George W. Bush is the President of the United States of America.
    • The more a government resembles a pure democracy the more disorder and confusion occur.
    • It is the responsibility of the federal government to create wealth.
    • Individual freedoms would be advanced and protected under a one-world government under United Nations authority.
    • The federal government should require students to pass a national test before graduating from high school.
    • The federal government should be directly involved in determining which students go to college and which students go into the work place and what jobs they hold.
    And if anyone is wondering, they scored 106 opinions "correct" with a percentage of 62%, putting me in the "moderate biblical worldview" camp. It seems clear that they believe that the separation of church and state is a non-biblical worldview, but that's obviously either a failure to understand the Christian background of that principle, or their extreme arrogance to assume that persons who do not interpret the scripture the way they do are not "biblical."

    What a joke of a test. A flat tax is the correct tax for a biblical worldview? Yeah, I'm sure that is what Ceasar had in mind, and what Jesus meant when he said render unto Ceasar what is Ceasars. Half of the the questions were so ridicuously biased I burst into laughter upon reading them. Considering my non hyperconservative political stance and my more liberal economic and social viewpoints I did not stand a chance with this test. I scored as a secualr humanist despite my belief that God is the creator of all; the Bible is the inerrant Word of God; Satan is real; Jesus was real, sinless and died for our sins; there is only one way to salvation; we cannot get to heaven by our good deeds and works on earth; the Bible should be the basis for all of our value foundations, etc. :rolleyes: So it is not really a biblical view UNLESS it is also a conservative political view as well. Good to know......

    72% moderate biblical worldview...some odd questions, though anything that started "The federal government should..." was cause for suspicion ;)

    94% - 160 out of 170 - Strong Biblical Worldview Thinker

    I had two questions I misread and should've answered differently and two I would dispute. However, overall, it seemed like a pretty fair gauge.

    This "test" is a crock of mud. I want my five minutes back.

    What's the problem exactly, did you find out you're a secular humanist or something?

    For those that are disappointed with the Worldviewweekend test. You might try the Peers test at the Nehemiah Institute.

    No, silly, I tested at 50%. Higher than even you might have imagined.

    The problem is that these hoo-haws think that their specific narrow political views are the only possible solidly Biblical ones. It's the same silly "neener neener neener" that goes on everywhere someone decides that they, and they alone, have God all figured out.

    Saturneptune, how about you stick to commenting on the thread topics. If I thought I had a stalker who couldn't spell "conspiratorial", I just don't think I could bear it. :smilewinkgrin:

    LE, since you posted the site, but not much else, what is your take on the assessment? Do you believe it is possible to have a biblical worldview without majority conservative political leanings? For the sake of argument let's take abortion out of the mix because while pro-choice is a liberal political viewpoint, it is not a biblical viewpoint.

    Please note, I am not trying to insinuate anything about your opinion. I just wanted to help get the thread back on track because I find it interesting.

    Rufus have you taken the Peers test? I looked at the site, or rather skimmed it, and it looked like you had to pay $14 something for the paper test or $9.99 for the online version. Perhaps I missed something....
