Shadows of Divine Things

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

What's Your Theological Worldview?

You scored as Reformed Evangelical. You are a Reformed Evangelical. You take the Bible very seriously because it is God's Word. You most likely hold to TULIP and are sceptical about the possibilities of universal atonement or resistible grace. The most important thing the Church can do is make sure people hear how they can go to heaven when they die.

OK! The above test is in serious need of qualification!

Some of the questions were ambiguous using words such as 'only' and 'always' and other similiar words in certain questions which I could have answered in the middle.

For instance, some of the questions were:

"The best way to understand the Bible is to take it literally" (this is not necessarily the best way to understand the Bible becasue often times the Bible uses metaphor, analogies, parables, and other linguistic features.)

"Preaching the word is more important than worship" (the problem here is the two are interwoven, we worship through the Word and through the Sacraments)

These are a few examples, but overall the test was fun. Try it out!

No, it's just that you're becoming Catholic. Ha! Or "Neo Orthodox" - Yikes! I didn't know the two were so closely related. Maybe I missed my calling.

The poor Eastern Orthodox don't seem to have been given a category. Perhaps they're just lumped in with the Catholics.

Actually, Jeremiah, what bothers me most is the fact that any semblance of liberalism exists on my chart.

That's how I felt about that test. For some reason I'm an Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan, whatever that means.
