What Denomination are You?

Here is an interesting link I found on my buddy Justin's blog Copying other people's ideas is great!

I was not surprised by the top category being Reformed. However, some of the others surprised me a lot more. I thought Reformed Baptist would have ranked higher than UCC, but oh well. Here are the result for me:

1: Presbyterian/Reformed (100%)
2: Congregational/United Church of Christ (83%)
3: Baptist (Reformed/Particular/Calvinistic) (75%)
4: Anglican/Episcopal/Church of England (71%)
5: Lutheran (68%)
6: Eastern Orthodox (67%)
7: Roman Catholic (51%)
8: Church of Christ/Campbellite (42%)
9: Methodist/Wesleyan/Nazarene (39%)
10: Baptist (non-Calvinistic)/Plymouth Brethren/Fundamentalist (29%)
11: Seventh-Day Adventist (28%)
12: Pentecostal/Charismatic/Assemblies of God (18%)
13: Anabaptist (Mennonite/Quaker etc.) (9%)

One comment on this survey, it is very general, and could have gotten a lot more specific to more clearly distinguish some of the theological nicieties involved in all these different views. On a few it was hard to chose which one I agreed with, not because I was not sure, but I did not like the phrasing of any of the choices. Just one note if anyone is interested in taking this test, be sure to chose both your doctrinal conviction, and also your ranking, the results are very different if you do not rank your priority. Enjoy!

I'm surprised that (a) "Campbellite" and (b) "fundamentalist" placed as high as they did with you. I thought they'd be last.

Well, I am puzzled by some of the results, just to say in my defense while Campbellite and Fundie may have ranked higher for me, you had a greater % of both!!!

good call--I hadn't paid attention to the weights. Yikes, I'm 82% RC! I guess from that perspective it's pretty impressive that mine are much more "balanced" than yours are.
