    I don't understand the last question; "A God who cannot suffer is poorer than any human being?" What does this mean?

    You scored as Anselm.

    Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period.He sees man's primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read 'Cur Deus Homo?'

    Anselm 100%
    Karl Barth 87%
    Charles Finney 80%
    Martin Luther 80%
    Paul Tillich 67%
    Jonathan Edwards 67%
    Friedrich Schleiermacher 53%
    John Calvin 53%
    Augustine 47%
    J?Moltmann 27%

    Very little can be determined by such a quiz. The mere wording of the questions determines for the most part the way you will score. I lay little real confidence that the writer(s) of this quiz understand some of the theologians they have posted.

    HP is correct, of course, the questions do give direction to the answer....Take the test anyway HP,,let's see where you stand.

    I don't object to my upper scale, but would certainly take exception to the lower few.

    I am somewhat Barthian, but would not subscribe to Schleirmacher or Tillich at all, even though I studied under Tillich; modernist to the core, the two of them. Barth's theology was developed in direct opposition to Schleirmacher.

    Barth's theology begins with the realization of man's wickedness.....and God's grace the pivot and goal of man's life. We experience God through Christ, the Word.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    HP: I will make you a deal. Tell us where you really stand by preaching that sermon on the evils of gambling and the lottery you considered, post it so that we can read it, and I will take the test.[​IMG]

    HP, I am afraid that is 20 years too late now. That's how long ago I preached against gambling and lottos. I mostly occupy a pew these days.

    Cheers,

    HP: If I was a betting man, which of course I am not, I would bet that you have bit on the bait they desire for others to do. I would not be the least bit surprised to learn that the author(s) of this quiz desire others to read about Anselm for their own private promotion of his thoughts and worded the questions so as to generate the responses that might precipitate such a study. Sure I could be wrong, but so far that’s my hunch.

    HP: Perhaps we can all pray that God will open a door for you to address your congregation on this most need topic. If you would just promise me that you would address that topic of gambling and the lottery if the Lord opens the door to preach, I would consider you having fulfilled your part of the bargain. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

    Anselm was the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 til his death in 1109. He was more a philosopher than a theologian, but was greatly influenced by Augustine. He believed in "necessary reason" to determine religious beliefs. Frankly, I can't tell you much more than that.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    You know that something is fishy in Denmark when these two score the same. They were at opposite poles!!!!!

    I scored 87% for Karl Barth and have to admit that I don't know much about him either.

    I agree that some of the questions were biased at best and therefore forced me to answer as much to the middle as possible.

    Taking these are fun though.

    WOOT!

    You scored as Martin Luther.
    The daddy of the Reformation. You are opposed to any Catholic ideas of works-salvation and see the scriptures as being primarily authoritative.
