One percent more

Another classifier I found on Pacificus. (No surprises for me this time.)

You scored as Karl Barth. The daddy of 20th Century theology. You perceive liberal theology to be a disaster and so you insist that the revelation of Christ, not human experience, should be the starting point for all theology.



Anselm ------------------------------- 80%
Karl Barth --------------------------- 80%
Friedrich Schleiermacher ------------- 73%
Charles Finney ----------------------- 73%
Martin Luther ------------------------ 67%
John Calvin -------------------------- 60%
Augustine ---------------------------- 33%
Jonathan Edwards --------------------- 27%
Jürgen Moltmann ---------------------- 7%
Paul Tillich ------------------------- 0%

Very proud to be very low on the Edwards and Finney scales...

I think it is a sign my friend. First I am labeled as Neo-orthodox, now I am closest to Karl Barth. Perhaps I had better look into his theology especially...

I am somewhat disturbed about having Schleiermacher and Finney on 33%...Even more surprised at having only 7% Augustine. I think it my inability consider his idea of infant baptism...

Karl Barth
100%

Anselm

Paul Tillich

John Calvin

Interesting that you have Barth at the top followed by liberal Schleirmacher.

Neal I noticed you don’t seem to hit the high percentages either. That’s somewhat of a consolation to me. Congrats on the low marks with respect to Edwards and Finney. I can only suspect my own high mark there pertains to some specific doctrine the quiz author assigned as highly unique to Finney. BTW I failed to give you credit for having uncovered the previous theology quiz so please accept my apology and gratitude. ;-)

Adam I was honestly pleased with your results (grin). I’m still not sure just how much these test actually reveal about us but I’m glad they make us question ourselves. Let me know how your investigation into the theology of Karl Barth progresses. This might even provoke me to attempt to acquire more than a token knowledge of these men.

Pech it still seems as if I’m all over the map with my theology and I think it will stay that way. I suspect it's because I have what's considered a liberal understanding with respect to our liberty in Christ and a very conservative understanding of our responsibility toward God. Do you plan to take this quiz? ;-)

Barth and Schleiemacher... I had a Systematic Theology assignment, once, to write a conversation between Barth, Schleiemacher, and (I think) Karl Rahner as though they were talking about the nature of salvation in a coffee shop in heaven. That was one of the hardest assignments I can recall from that class.

I also recall that same professor telling me that if I wanted to become a famous theologian, I needed to marry someone named 'Schleiemacher' because my own last name is too boring to be remembered by theology students.

Oh, I took the quiz. Didn't record the results. No 100%. Top was Anselm with which I was pleased, then it was Martin Luther. I guess I got too carried away with the just shall live by faith issue. I think the next was Barth, a man after my own heart. You should really get to know him. I think you'd like him.

I am still not sure I would consider you liberal based on Christ's liberty. In both the political and religious world, liberal means something completely different.

Pech, with that liberty in mind, those questions that use the phrase "man must" do this or that tend to get what is considered a liberal response. ;-)

I honestly never met a theologian I didn't like (grin) but I know what you mean. What little I have read on him is quite positive from my perspective.

I came out as Moltmann (67%) closely followed by Tillich & Schliermacher (tied @ 53%). Luther came out last @ 7% . . . more and more Catholic every day :-)

Blessings & Peace,
Hugo

Hugo between you and Neal I'm feeling pretty good about myself and my low percentages. :-> I think you're high enough on the Barth scale from your last quiz that we can still talk (hehe)

Man, R is more Karl Barth than I thought!!! AT least she scored high on Anselm. And what's this Calvin-Edwards combo? I thought you hated those guys??? Just put Augustine up and you have a three some!! =)

Hey Lady R have you studied Barth already? Mayhaps you can point Pech in the right direction (hehe). I really do envy your high marks. Pech I guess everyday is an adventure huh? ;-)

Thanks to Dr. Holstein in Intro to Theology (the only DTS class I survived), I can proudly say I have studied Karl. Unfortunately, being the visual person that I am, I only remember the powerpoint slide that discribed his theology. It was a picture of a man and light and something else. What it all means has now left me. But I do remember that I liked what he had to say for the most part.

Pechuer told me before we moved out to DTS to make sure that I kept him solidly grounded if he started to have tendencies to go crazy in his theology. I can proudly say that, although Pech has expanded his views on a couple of things, he still is very well grounded doctrinally.

Pech did the right thing when it came to seminary. He already knew what he believed and why before he came to DTS. He just used the school to expand his knowledge of Christiandom past and present. I'm thankful that his faith was not shaken like so many unfortunate ones who come to seminary just to "find out who God is." Pech already knew God.

Now...if we can just get this crazy thesis turned in (yeah! less than 3 weeks to go!), we can get on back home and enjoy some time with friends and family before we start God's next big adventure for us. :)

Lady R would you be surprised to find out you’re much more a word person than a picture person? (That IS a compliment BTW)

I had a million thoughts as I read your comment and I hope to share them with you soon but I settled on revising an old saying; “Beside every great man there’s a great woman”. You two are such a blessing! ;-)
