I' m emergent/postmodern

Oh my what a shock!

I agree with most of the evaluation but not all of it.
The main part I disagree with is the statement about the old church. If they are talking about church 50 or a 100 years ago then ok I agree, but that's mainly due to a culture shift that has happened. If they are talking about organised religion and the typical church family and faith community then I disagree.

I firmly believe that 'church' has alot to offer. It provides a really firm foundation from which to provide the connections in the community that the emergent church are trying to make. One of my concerns is that the emergent church and the current model of church often seem to think that it is an either/ or scenario instead of both working together to connect with the local community

I got this of Barefoot and laughing Thanks Kirsten

I would love to hear what you are

You scored as Emergent/Postmodern.

You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don't think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

Like you, I scored emergent, post-modern at almost exactly the same time. Looks as if the quiz was making the rounds!
