I've been giving some thought to how we, in the general sense, "debate" with each other, and how labels effect the way in which we interact with each other. More on this maybe tomorrow. But here is my first label:
I took a test, and apparently I am a Methodist. Good to know I'm in the right place. (although, apparently, other religions run a close second, third, etc). It's good to know that I am not easily understood. (What?) So many of the questions on the quiz were black or white / pick and choose / one side is right and the other is wrong. As my husband says, I live in a gray area. I am also not completely sure what "neo orthodox" means, and could it actually be the opposite of classical liberal? To be perfectly honest, I had to go look up a few of the questions to understand them before I could answer them.
You scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan. You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God's grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists.
Bet you didn't know that I am "totally depraved."
What's your theological worldview?

On another note, I've been reading a blog called Cerulean Sanctum. I've only read two of his posts, but so far I've found them interesting. He is doing a series "21 Steps to a 21st Century Church." I read part two today. As part of a committee I serve with at our church, I've been giving some thought to church growth, and found Dan's list of 21 steps to be thought-provoking. I'm not sure if I agree with all of them, but I do with some of them. The name of his blog in the first sentence of this paragraph is a link to his blog.
Tomorrow -- are you an idealogue or a contextualizer? Luckily, no quiz will be given.
