I, a Methodist

Monday, May 21, 2007

I got this link from Karen and surprisingly it did label me a Methodist, which I am, born and bred. I wanted to say that it is not important what I am, as long as I abide in Christ and Christ abide in me. That is true, but looking at the list, I begin to feel that it is important to me. Important not in the sense that being a Methodist is the best or is the most correct, because I respect the others for who they are. It is important because it represents what I believe and what I stand for, how I think and how I behave - O Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner.

  2. I think it's interesting that the scores for Fundamentalist and Emergent/Postmodern are so close for you and even tied for Susan. I can't remember the number, but mine were close, too. In fact, all of mine were very close, with almost no clear majority (52% Evengelical H/W).

    We are not all so very different, I think.

  3. Methodist & Postmodern were neck & neck for me with reformed not too far behind. Too many questions I wanted clarification on though, so what does that make me?

  4. Susan,
    I did not know how to put it in the site either! I copied the html, pasted it, worked on the post and later when I got back to it, it went berserk. So I just had it done in simple text.

    You and I are similar on the major worldviews and less on the minor ones :) interesting indeed.

    Mine I think is quite right because I don't see myself a liberal at all.

  5. Missy, Julia,
    Hmmm ... you are right. I was busy thinking how Methodist I was that I didn't quite realise that this could be oxymoronic!

    Methodist/Reformed = Armenian/Calvinism. And I think I know why ... we live in a www world and with all the mixing of ideas and thoughts, maybe we have become so mixed up now. Maybe that is why there is a Emergent/Postmodern category for people like us! You think?
