Christian traditions selector meme

Gacked from koinegeek.

1: Anglican/Episcopal/Church of England (100%)
2: Church of Christ/Campbellite (97%)
3: Pentecostal/Charismatic/Assemblies of God (97%)
4: Congregational/United Church of Christ (89%)
5: Eastern Orthodox (86%)
6: Seventh-Day Adventist (86%)
7: Lutheran (81%)
8: Baptist (Reformed/Particular/Calvinistic) (78%)
9: Baptist (non-Calvinistic)/Plymouth Brethren/Fundamentalist (78%)
10: Methodist/Wesleyan/Nazarene (78%)
11: Presbyterian/Reformed (72%)
12: Anabaptist (Mennonite/Quaker etc.) (70%)
13: Roman Catholic (54%)

Take the quiz here.

For the life of me, I can't figure out how I got 100% Anglican, when I answered that I prefer a contemporary worship service. *boggles*

But my Campbellite upbringing definitely showed up strong. Wierd, considering I have wandered away from CoC teachings somewhat in the past few years.

At least you scored higher as a Campbellite than me! (and I currently attend a CofC). I wonder what the denomination of the test writer is. I am definitely not 100% Anabaptist/Quaker...

I'd been attending a CoC until last summer, when I moved from central FL to Tallahassee. But it was a pretty liberal one (or at least, as liberal as they get). And there are some things I still disagree with them on--mainly the meaning of baptism. However, I still gave the CoC answer for the question on baptism on this quiz, because even though it's not quite what I believe, it's closer to what I believe than all the other questions.

What's intersting to me is that they combined Anabaptist/Quaker/Mennonite into one. I always thought Quakers were a little bit, well, not quite orthodox, whereas I though anabaptists/Mennonites were pretty much in line theologically with other conservative protestant groups. My sis-in-law was raised Mennonite and that's what most of her family is, and my impression has been that there are not significant theological differences. Maybe I got the wrong idea about Quakers somewhere down the line, though. I have no idea where my impression that they are not-quite-orthodox comes from.

Heh. The last one of these quizzes that I took classified me as 100% Catholic/Eastern Orthodox. I think it put me there because I answered things like being opposed to abortion were "very important". *shrugs* I'm sure the ideas of the test maker about what makes a Catholic a Catholic, and what makes a Quaker a Quaker, etc. can have quite an effect, and are probably what lead to these inaccuracies.

That should be "it's closer to what I believe than all the other choices.

For the most part, we've attended 'traditional' to moderate Churches of Christ. Though while we were in Chesapeake, VA, we went to a church that had instrumental music, among other things.

Perhaps the test writer categorized the Quakers with Anabaptists since the former originated from the latter. But that's almost like comparing the mainstream CofC's to the Disciples of Christ.

The last quiz I took like this pegged me as a Seventh Day Adventist. That truly boggles me. Perhaps my buddhist upbringing has some strange influence?

I worked out that that reason it puts me as Congregational instead of Reformed is the one about losing salvation. 'No' gives you Congreational, 'Wrong question' gives you Presbyterian/Reformed. Hello, let me introduces the 5th point of Calvinism, the perserverance of the saints. I wanted an option that included 'You're asking the wrong question' and 'no'.

What is Church of Christ/Cambellite, may I ask? I think my denominationally perpatetic uncle may have spent some time in one of those, but natch it may mean something totally different in the US and the UK.

The churches of Christ are the most conservative result (the others being the Disciples of Christ and the Christian churches) of the Restoration movement that occured in the US in the late 1700s/early 1800s. A couple of early proponents of this movement were named "Campbell". The idea was to restore the original practices and beliefs of the original New Testament church.

Some notable characteristics of the CoC:
-No creed but the Bible; very close adherence to Biblical teaching, especially the New Testament; the idea that nothing should be added to the Bible
-Baptism, which is for adult believers only, is essential for salvation
-Communion is taken every Sunday
-All worship music is non-instrumental
