This is fun. Surveys such as these should never substitute for your own reflection on your faith, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t fill them out for fun! They are even thoughtful enough to include the following disclaimer:

Warning: Belief-O-Matic™ assumes no legal liability for the ultimate fate of your soul.

It’s a good website…check it out. Here’s the link to the quiz.

And here are my results. I’d say they got it right on. Maybe I’ll have to check out the Quakers if Episcopalianism ceases to suit me? (ha ha…just kidding fellow parishioners and denominational comrades, and no insult meant to any Quakers reading out there…I think I could learn and appreciate a lot from that tradition. But stability to one’s own faith tradition, barring outright wrongdoing, is more important that gyrovague’ing from this denom to the next, or this parish to the next. Well, enough commentary from me…here’s my results, and take the quiz yourself for some internetting fun.)

Your Results:

The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.

Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

  1. Oh boy. I’m your average mainline liberal/mormon/conservative/quaker/ba’hai/unitarian.

    Fun set of questions though.
