Earlier I posted a quiz to determine what kind of Christian you might be. Now I have discovered a broader quiz that might apply to more people: What religion do you fit in with? It’s called the Belief-O-Matic, created at Beliefnet.com. Check it out!
Some of the questions are a little hard to follow, and a little theological savvy helps (like knowing the precise meaning of “essence,” etc.).
Interestingly, I scored a 100% as an Orthodox Quaker. That’s news to me; I probably scored close to them because of the way I answered their social issues questions. Rounding out the top 6:
2) mainline to conservative Christian/Protestant (94%–that’s a relief; after all, that’s what I am);
3) mainline to liberal Christian Protestant (86%);
4) Eastern Orthodox (84%);
5) Roman Catholic (84%); and
6) Seventh Day Adventist (82%).
After those 6, my matches drop off quite a bit. Thankfully, and no offense intended to Tom Cruise, my bottom match was Scientology (15%).
