TULIP–You Learn Something New Every Day

I took this quiz, which I first heard of here. to find out that, according to it, I am a Reformed Evangelical. I had no idea what TULIP was, so I have provided a link to explain it here . What I saw did not surprise me, but it might surprise some of the people at my Lutheran church.

UPDATE

My father, who was a Methodist and then an Orthodox Presbyterian before we moved to Ohio and he joined the Lutheran Church, had this to say about TULIP:

TULIP is an acronym for the five points of Calvinism, which are : total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints. Most Lutherans would deny that they are true; but if you understand them as Orthodox Presbyterians do, they are Scriptural. Total depravity refers to our total inability by our own merits or strength to believe in Jesus Christ. Unconditional election means that God does not play favorites and has not chosen us because of anything good in us. Limited atonement means that not everybody is saved. Irresistible grace refers to conversion(like the Apostle Paul who was blinded and converted on his way to Damascus). Perseverance of the saints refers to Romans 8:38-39 and similar verses of assurance.

What’s your theological worldview?

You scored as Reformed Evangelical You are a Reformed Evangelical. You take the Bible very seriously because it is God’s Word. You most likely hold to TULIP and are skeptical about the possibilities of universal atonement or resistible grace. The most important thing the Church can do is make sure people hear how they can go to heaven when they die.

    I scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan.

    You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God’s grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists.

    Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan – 79%

    I took the quiz too,and I came out with Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 79% also. However, I was NOT 50% Roman Catholic even though I have more background in Catholicism. Do you think we should change churches? 🙂

    I scored Evangelical/Wesleyan, too. I am rooted in tradition, therefore I am Lutheran. 🙂
