Theologian Quiz

There is a fun quiz you can take that will tell you what theologian you most closely relate with. I'm not sure that I answered every question accurately seeing as how I've forgotten a lot of what I learned in seminary so some of the terminology was a blast from the past...and I'm not sure I remembered everything correctly.

That being said, I guess I'm pretty much in line with Karl Barth. You can take the quiz by clicking on the link under the picture of Karl Barth below or you can click here.

Study of American's View of Sin

A recently released study of Americans over the topic of sin has some rather interesting findings. You can view the info here.

One of the biggest things that stood out to me was this paragraph:

"One of the biggest differences in whether people believe in the concept of sin is actually not even religious, but political. Among political conservatives, 94% believe there is such a thing as sin. This is also true among 89% of moderates. But only 77% of political liberals believe in the concept of sin."

If you check out the report, scroll down to the bottom and you can see the info listed in chart form if you don't want to read through everything else.

What do you think? Is this study surprising to you or does it coincide with what you already felt to be true about our country?

What does this study say about the role that the church is playing in our society?
