Who are you?

Which theologian are you?

I was a wee bit surprised that I am so closely aligned with Luther.
Now, there are a few friends out there I am curious about:
Chris Eaton
Le Eaton
Carrie Gwaltney
Larry McGarr
Faye Creech

Anyone may play!!

By the way, Shelley was Anselm

If you would like to read some great thoughts on the book of Mark, check out Chris' blog. Chris is one of the best gray collar theologians on the web. Now, a gray collar is not a slam, it is a compliment from another gray collar guy. Chris and I are both bivocational. It means we have more than one job. For Chris and I it means we run general construction sites to feed our families, then in the time between we take care of our families, look for income from other small ventures and lead small faith communities. The traditional church would call those small groups, the new testament would call us churches.

    Hi Jimmy,

    I enjoy reading your blog.

    My results were a tie between:

    Karl Barth (?) and

    With the tiebreaker going to Barth.

    I suppose I should read up on this guy.


  2. no matter how much I tried for Calvin... it kept coming up Barth...!

  3. Chris and Lea, read Barth. I think you will enjoy and nod on a regular basis.

  4. OK, I've tried to leave a comment 3 times so Jimmy I'm sorry if at some point they all show up!! When I tried the link I went to the quiz "Are you a clutz?" Seeing as how I can't seem to leave a valid comment (and based on the bruises on my shins and the many episodes of "clutzness" that my family can attest to, it's obvious why I got that quiz and not the theologian one!! And oh, no, I am not posting results to the "clutz" one! :)

    this is who i was and this is what it said... a bit of calvin in there too. i'd say it's not too bad a summary of my beliefs, if a little simplistic.

    Jürgen Moltmann
    The problem of evil is central to your thought, and only a crucified God can show that God is not indifferent to human suffering. Christian discipleship means identifying with suffering but also anticipating the new creation of all things that God will bring about.

  6. OK, I got it to work through Lea's blog so --- drum roll --- Calvin - CALVIN???!! Hmmmm... and Calvin tied with Anselm and Jonathan Edwards was 73% so who can complain? Interesting quiz (and much better than the clutz one!!)

  7. Hi Jimmy!

    Barth has a very slight lead over Anselm. I confess not being very familiar with either, although I've now read up on Barth some online. I think I click with his view of the Bible. I don't know much about Anselm.... I'll go check him out.


  8. It was Anselm for me. I had never heard of him. Looks like it's research time.

  9. Hey Jimmy ... looks like kudos goto you for making the YS Update!
