Me? a Martin Luther?

So I took this test, and the results tell me that I am most like Martin Luther in my Theology. I don't know about that. I think this test was skewed toward reformed theology, and Western white guys like myself, except I may not think completely like these Reformed Western White guys like myself. Anyway - Martin Luther and I - Cool!

We have some unique similarities. We were both born on November 10th, we both have been excommunicated for being heretics, and we both have done some big things on Halloween which got us trouble, (Although I think the Wittenburg Door deal was way bigger than anything I've done.)

I think that my favorite part of this is that Augustine scored so low on my chart. Woo-hoo!

So here are my test results:


You scored as Martin Luther. The daddy of the Reformation. You are opposed to any Catholic ideas of works-salvation and see the scriptures as being primarily authoritative.

Martin Luther

93%

Karl Barth

73%

Anselm

67%

John Calvin

Jürgen Moltmann

Mine has to be wrong. I scored as "Anselm," then John Calvin in second place.

That's messed up.

I'm not sure how you can be more Charles Finney and less Jonathan Edwards while being like Calvin. Who made this test up?

At least I'm not Augustinian.

Anselm was the archbishop of Canterbury, and you can check him out on wikipedia, or at Stanford's Philosophical Dictionary - http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/anselm/

I took this test the other morning about 1am when I was dead-tired an I was a staunch Calvinist. When I took it yesterday after a good night's sleep, I was a disciple of Luther, which seems more accurate.

What does this mean? Perhaps we should not take tests when we are predestined for bed. ;D

I think this test was predestined to make you a reformer.
