Luke! It IS Your Destiny!

Following up on one we did the other day, another religious worldview quiz drags me closer to Rome:

Rank Item Percent
1: Roman Catholic (100%)
2: Eastern Orthodox (85%)
3: Lutheran (84%)
4: Anglican/Episcopal/Church of England (80%)
5: Presbyterian/Reformed (67%)
6: Congregational/United Church of Christ (50%)
7: Baptist (Reformed/Particular/Calvinistic) (36%)
8: Church of Christ/Campbellite (24%)
9: Methodist/Wesleyan/Nazarene (15%)
10: Seventh-Day Adventist (13%)
11: Baptist (non-Calvinistic)/Plymouth Brethren/Fundamentalist (7%)
12: Anabaptist (Mennonite/Quaker etc.) (3%)
13: Pentecostal/Charismatic/Assemblies of God (3%)

Some interesting questions. I think what gave the edge to the R.C.'s over my own Episcopal Church was my response on the matter of Communion (I am increasingly of the belief in transubstantiation in the Platonic sense, a change in essense without a change in physical properties) and the matter of purgatory (I believe in it without even knowing what official 'Palie doctrine is. If it is accepted in the Episcopal Church, it certainly doesn't get talked about much. )

But if I am going to the Mother Church, I have one iron condition: No goddam hippy music. Otherwise, I walk.

Yips! to the Pentacostal Brian B.

UPDATE: Third times's a charm. Behold my top 5 Belief-O-Matic results:

1. Eastern Orthodox (100%)
2. Roman Catholic (100%)
3. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (95%)
4. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (86%)
5. Orthodox Judaism (83%)

Yips! to Unitarian JohnL at TexasBestGrok for sending that one along (and getting me in even further trouble with the Missus, btw).

I think it is time for Robert to explore the path walked by Cardinal Newman . . .

My results on this one.

1: Roman Catholic (100%)
2: Anglican/Episcopal/Church of England (74%)
3: Eastern Orthodox (68%)
4: Lutheran (67%)
5: Presbyterian/Reformed (55%)

Pretty much fits. I could see myself in the Church of England, Orthodox, or the Lutheran Churches pretty easily if there were no Catholic Church.

I will order you subscription to New Oxford Review, a monthly Catholic (formerly Anglican) magazine--guaranteed to be petal-to-the-metal every time.

1. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (100%)
2. Jehovah's Witness (95%)
3. Orthodox Judaism (81%)
4. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (73%)
5. Baha'i Faith (71%)
6. Islam (69%)

What is interesting about this list is how doctrinally dissimilar these religious traditions are. I am not sure if I can think of anything that these six have in common.
