  1. What’s your theological worldview?
    created with QuizFarm.com
    You scored as Fundamentalist

    You are a fundamentalist. You take the Bible as the foundation of your faith and read it very literally, and it shapes your worldview. Non-fundamentalist Christians have watered-down the Gospel in your view, and academic study of the Bible stops us from ‘taking God at his word.’ Science is opposed to faith, as it contradicts basic biblical truths.

    Disagree. Does any fundamentalist actually believe this? Science CONFIRMS biblical truths, as God is the author of all things, even “knowledge” (science).

    I’ll probably get ‘fundie’ too, it’s fun fitting everyone in to little boxes, eh? =)

    I wonder if a liberal made this quiz, their opinion of fundamentalist Christians can be seen in the description given.

    yeah i was fundamentalist and reformed evangelical too..

  12. Joel S. says:

    Hey. As was I. Interesting little quiz. Some of the statements were worded in a way that I had to disagree, but I can be a bit nit-picky. For instance, take a look at this one.

    “God says it. I believe it. That settles it.”

    To me, whether I believe it or not, If God said it, THAT settles it. I think this is actually an old hymn, though. Anyway, I hope I didn’t fail since I forgot to study.

    ;)

    Peace brethren

  13. AntiTheist says:

    As apparent fundamentalists (if you take this quiz for having any reliability), I wonder do you guys take the bible literally or metaphorically?

  14. That depends on context, like it would any literature.

  15. AntiTheist says:

    well not really any literature.

    but can i give an example in the bible and you say if its metaphorical or literal?

    Leviticus 18:22 No man is to have sexual relations with anohter man: God hates that

  16. AntiTheist says:

    Another question while Im here: Do you really believe in virgin births and resurections?

  17. Yes, God hates homosexuality. It is a perversion of what marriage is meant to represent. That is the love between Jesus and His bride, the Church.

    Yes, Jesus was literally born of a virgin. He would have to be if He had a divine nature, and existed before His physical birth.

    Yes, there will be a resurrection of the dead. It is appointed for men to die once, and after this comes the judgment.

  18. AntiTheist says:

    “That is the love between Jesus and His bride, the Church”…?

    ok fair enough, another example.
    Levitcus 19:20

    “If another man has promised to sell a slave girl to another man as a concubine, but the other man ahs not piad for her, then the owner and the girl are not to be put to death if they have sexual intercourse; they will be punished. After all, she is his slave.”

    Is this how you deal with your prostitutes?

    Leviticus 11:13-22
    “You must not eat any of the following birds: eagles, owls, hawks, falcons; buzzards, vultures, crows, ostriches; seagulls, storks, herons, pelicans, cormorants; hoopoes; or bats. All winged insects are unclean except those that hop. You may eat locusts, crickets or grasshoppers…”

    Do you follow this eating code?

    And are you not worried that you are being compared to Jerry Falwell?

    “You’ve got to kill the terrorists before the killing stops. And I’m for the president to chase them all over the world. If it takes 10 years, blow them all away in the name of the Lord.”

    “AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharaoh’s charioteers … AIDS is not just God’s punishment for homosexuals; it is God’s punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.”

    -Falwell.

  19. First of all, before you pull out random Bible verses, take the time to look at it in context. Leviticus is one of the five books of the Torah, also known as the Law of Moses. These Laws were given to a specific people, at a specific time. However, they are in the Bible today because they are completely God inspired texts, full of examples, illustrations and instructions given for us New Covenant believers to apply to our lives today. The Bible makes it clear that the Law was a guardian to bring us to Christ and keep us until He came. We are no long under the law of Moses, but under the law of Christ.

    These laws were given to sanctify Israel, and set them apart from all the other nations, who at the time worshiped idols and false gods, and practiced horrific sexually immoral acts, etc. etc. Not only that but they kept God’s people (from whom the Messiah would come) pure. The laws saved them from a lot of medical problems, and so on. When Israel obeyed God, they were blessed, and they were a physical witness to the rest of the world, that the one true God, YHWH reigns.

  20. AntiTheist says:

    ok. so why do you take some of it literally and some of it not?

    you took the rejection of homosexulaity without hesitation, but then the context has to be brought in for the other passages? And why have acceptable morals changed. If god is all kind, all knowing and all brilliant (which he is most certainly not) then why didnt he preach the end of slavery and prostitution from the get go?

  21. It is literal. You just need to remember who it is He is addressing. They were Laws given to a specific people, at a specific time. That is, to the nation of Israel, under the theocratic old covenant. God has made a new covenant with man, after the death of Christ – who is the sacrifice for our sins, and the mediator between man and God.

    “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the LORD. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Jeremiah 31:31-33)

    God still hates homosexuality, and the New Covenant says, “men who practice homosexuality… will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9) God has fixed a day in which he will judge the world in righteousness, and He will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil. Those who will not repent are storing up wrath for themselves for the day of wrath, that is, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. Those who have stored up a lifetime of wrath will wish they had died earlier.

  22. AntiTheist says:

    Oh yes the new testemant, which is relevant to us.

    Matthew 10:36
    “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the world. No, I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. I came to set sons against their fathers, daughters against their mothers, daughters-in-law aginst their mothers-in-law; a man’s worst enemy will be the members of his own family. ”

    Do you take that literally? Do you take a combative approach to religion? Do you love jesus more than your parents or siblings?

  23. Stubo says:

    Of course we do. Any Christian should love Christ above all. In comparison to my friends, family, everyone I know, I hate them compared to the Lord.

    I’ve done more good in the name of Jesus Christ in the last 9 months (when I became a Christian) than I have in the previous 20 years of my life put together. Nothing else motivated me to seek God. Nothing else compelled me to seek forgiveness. But the Son of God coming down to Earth to die and God being pleased to reveal His truths to me has obligated me to respond with all my heart, soul, strength and mind.

  24. AntiTheist says:

    seeking god and forgiveness is not really good for anyone than yourself. what good have you done in the last 9 months that is so much greater than the rest of your life?

  25. You are judging goodness according to the standards of men, which are very low. Because often the good things we do for men are done with the wrong motives. Goodness is not defined by what you do to men, but what you do to God. Jesus said there is none that are good, not even one. Only God. Which is why Paul said in Romans 8:8, those who are in the flesh – that means you – cannot please God.

  26. Joe C. says:

    Scott, you should just go away, you’re not contributing, you’re just here to hurt people (I don’t expect you to admit to this), but I am sure this is how many of us feel about what you’re saying. You are only here to mock us, and it’s painfully obvious, and it’s very commonplace. You are using the same straw man arguments all athiests have used for centuries, they have been refuted for centuries, answered loudly, and you never listen. Every atheist comes along with the same argument thinking they’ve found the downfall to all organized religion, the same argument, it’s so tiresome, so straw man, so repetative. Guess what, Jesus and the Bible are still around, never shown to be inaccurate on the subjects it speaks about. Science, geology, space, time, history (that’s a BIG one you can test, and show the Bible to be emphatically true), and ultimately, spiritually. Guess the athiests haven’t done much afterall then huh? You’d think if God was so false, and it was just SO obvious to our now ‘eductated age’, if the Bible was SO unreliable, and Jesus was SO fake, everyone would just shut up and believe they are ‘pond scum’ by now, right?

    200+ years of ‘enlightenment’ and most of the world apparently just ‘doesn’t get it’ I suppose.

    You’re only here for an argument, do not lie about it, you’re not here to learn, just to mock and argue. You’re not actively seeking anything except your own self gratification knowing you ‘got us’, in your mind, even if you didn’t in reality. Just like in the evolution debate we had, when you cannot come up with valid original arguments, you twist and distort, or use other peoples fanciful stories about eyeballs (my coke one was pretty sweet though, huh? No pun intended). You had no real answers, to our scientific questions even, but you continued plodding along, bringing up side arguments about the Bible and Jesus, to mock and distract, some of your answers were just you laughing at us. That’s not a retort, that’s not evidence or science.

    What’s with the ad hominem attacks anyways? Even my athiest father can see how those verses were historically bound to Israel. He doesn’t expect me to stone children. I think you understand EXACTLY what Ben Davis was saying about historical context, you just choose to ignore it and continue plodding on, just like you ignored Justin Anderson’s questions and mine too. If you need to feel good about yourself, go to an athiest forum and bash us hateful Christians there.

    And no one was taking that worldview quiz seriously. It was a joke. Jerry Fallwell? Nice ad hominem. You know, that’s a despicable debate technique right? Completely invalid. I’m not going to say yea or nay on the Fallwell quotes, but think of it this way, it was God’s perogative to incinerate two cities completely involved and entrenched in sexual immorality, all that’s left today is the foundations, and balls of sulfer burned in to the rocks around the area. God can judge us in our horrible immorality and sin any way He sees fit, since He is perfect, and we are not. And our concept of ‘good and fair’ is just plain pathetic. Here’s the concept of Good: …..GOD. Anything short of that is evil and worthy of death by Him…so God can judge this creation however He sees fit. And be justified in doing so. All morality comes from Him, He IS the concept of ‘good’, and ‘right’. Anything besides that is wrong. By the way, where do you get your ideas for morality from, what is right and wrong? All you can do is borrow from my worldview, since in athiesm, there is no rational reason for morality. And if you’re going to retort that statement, actually retort it, don’t go off on a tangent about something else. Is it rational, if you came from randomness and nothingness, to have morals or even LOGIC? You could go on a killing spree right now and be morally justified, if you saw fit. As long as it was ‘right’ to you.

    I’m very sad right now, I just want you to CARE enough to be serious with these things instead of making staw man arguments and mocking us. But what can I expect..?

    Here’s a good practical example of what Jesus was talking about in the verse you quoted him saying…

    When my wife became a Christian, her family turned against her, her mother, her father, and her brother. They were SOO open minded and liberal, that they had to disown her for loving God. Because they were so, so, open minded you see. They were so, so very tolerant, that because she loved Jesus and wanted to serve God with her life, her athiest parents shunned her. And every real Christian experiences this in their life in some way. THAT is what Jesus was talking about, and promised to His followers. Division. Let’s not take that verse out of context. It’s the world doing the killing here. Why do the Christians always get their heads cut off, throats slit, burned alive, murdered, imprisoned away from their families, and so on, and so on. Look up what the most persecuted religion in the world is, and has been for 2000 years (and I’m talking the real version). Why is that?

    John 15:18-19 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.”

    2 Timothy 3:12 “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

    I expect to be hated, not because I’m a poor worker, not because I try to hurt people, but because of who I am and what I believe in. And regardless of what you tell yourself at night, by your actions and words, you hate us too. But that’s not important, what IS important is that you HATE God. This, is the most terrible thing I can think of, and the most terrible thing God speaks about, and I beg you to repent of it. My words do not convince though, and never will.

    Consider it fulfilled prophecy, but from your previous reactions to Scripture and explanations, I have to assume you won’t care.

    I’m very sorry if I sounded harsh, you lose emotion when you’re reading plain text. I honestly feel that you just need to leave us be, if, this is all you’re going to do.

    Either bring something real, a fresh argument, some proof God doesn’t exist, some proof of evolution, anything tangible and fresh, and not a tiresome old straw man argument….

    Or just go. Save yourself the trouble, we’re too ignorant, we’re fools, and we’ll never get it like you do, friend.

    I am a fool, Ben is too, we’re all fools, all us Christians. And what we believe in is foolish. It’s complete foolishness. It says so right in 1st Corinthians chapter 1.

    Love,

    Joe

    HAHAHAHAHA! it kinda hits the nail on the head for me.

  28. AntiTheist says:

    I apologise if you feel that way, but look at if from my view. What if god doesn’t exist, are people are giving their lives to an imaginary friend, that shuts off and out all questioning. We live in a world with great ideas and great knowledge. And from my point of view, religion hinders that knowledge! I also don’t like the ideas of website with only one view. Of course obviously the regulars on this site are secure christians and will probably stay that way no matter what I say, but don’t you think it’s healthy for a counter-voice?

    I have my post for information ready, and i’ve asked for the post to be reopened and sent my reply, but havent heard anything back yet. Hopefully we can re-open that discussion.

    Thanks, Scott.

  29. IF God did not exist, life would be a meaningless accident, and a pointless result of chance. So, why do would you bother? We are meaningless. You are meaningless. And everything you have to say is meaningless.

  30. Joe C. says:

    Scott, you avoid the crux of the issue again.

    The issue is, are you ACTUALLY contributing something to our discussion, or just mocking us, and or bringing up old tiresome arguments that have been shown fallible already for hundreds of years.

    And Scott, you had days and days to answer our questions, you even posted several times, but you had no answers, so the discussion was considered dead-ended and closed.

    Check this out, if you believe that belief in God hinders knowledge, then see it from our perspective too. God knows all things, created all things, He IS science (knowledge). If you exclude God from scientific persuit and study right off the bat, a priori, then you’ve made a blindfold or a warped lense from which to view the universe through. You’ll always twist the evidence no matter what to fit pure naturalism, completely and always excluding the possibility of “the divine foot in the door” even before you begin studying. This is the antithesis of scientific inquiry and knowledge. Naturalism has retarded scientific growth for almost 200 years, and molecules to man evolution has added nothing to operational science, medical science, and has given nothing tangible to the human race to help us out. Just like the tales of Mother Goose don’t save lives. Why keep it? They can’t even empirically prove it? So what purpose does it serve then…

    To give people an excuse not the believe in their Maker.

    It’s healthy for a counter voice if that voice is polite and does not mock, and adds to the discussion. But your ravening athiesm gets us no where, because WE all believe in GOD and JESUS CHRIST our LORD, and none of us will budge from this. So how can this ‘add’ to the discussion at all Scott? We need to get off the ‘existence of God’ path and move on to discussion points that can go somewhere. If you can’t do this, then you should just go to a forum where you can hate on God all you want. How can you hate something that doesn’t exist? But by your actions and words, it seems you fight against God vehemently.

    Besides, if God doesn’t exist, then there is no absolute standard for anything. Morals, emotions, etc are all just random chemical reactions like the rest of the universe, and ultimately relative and pointless. If this is the case, how can you trust anything you think, or know if anything you think in your head is real at all? Also, what’s the point of this discussion? If you’re right, and there is no God, and you are SO sure of it, well then, why are you fighting so hard? Why do you keep coming back to fight something that doesn’t exist? This is illogical, but I guess logic can’t exist in random pointlessness either (althought the universe is increddibly logical and organized, and how can that happen from an explosion and random chance?). It seems that it is contradictory to fight against a Being that does not exist.

    Examine yourself. I think you’ll see what I’m talking about.

    V/R

  31. Joe C. says:

    P.S.

    Belief in God does not shut ‘off all questioning’.

    I was an athiest before I believed in God. And I was still an evolutionist when I first became a Christian. I was able, through scientific INQUIRY, and Scripture, to QUESTION evolution.

    Some of our GREATEST scientific minds EVER, were biblical creationists. Most of our modern fields of science, discovered by creationists. Doesn’t seem to me that belief in God cuts of questioning at all. Doesn’t seem to slow us down at all.

    Let me ask you this, does believing the earth is less than 10,000 years old and was destroyed 4000 years ago by a worldwide flood effect my ability to function in soceity AT ALL? Does it effect my ability to love and do science? No.

  32. Joe C. says:

    Scott, please read this article. I think this will help explain much of the ‘logic, laws, and rationalizing’ I was talking about in my larger post that is impossible to account for in athiesm.
