Worldview Checkup
« on: December 06, 2017, 11:30:06 am »
I don't know, maybe someone else gets this on Facebook?  I keep getting this thing on my feed showing up from "Summit Ministries" asking me to take a "worldview checkup"....so I can see, as they put it, "how much I've been shaped by a biblical worldview and influenced by other worldviews."  I finally did it (which involved answering a bunch of questions about god and religion and so forth), just to see if they would say I'm going to hell, or something.... :P

Copied and pasted from the 'results page' because I found it amusing:

In the Secret Battle of Ideas, your worldview is…

0% Christian

41% Postmodern

2.4% New Spiritual

2.4% Islamic

37% Secular

17% Marxist

You do not often think in biblical terms. Other worldviews are constantly trying to gain a foothold in the minds of Bible-believing people, and these views have proven so persuasive that most of your thinking is patterned after other worldviews.

Be encouraged! You are not alone. Only 17% of Christians hold a completely biblical worldview. That means most people at some point or another need resources (like those found on the following page) that can help them guard against invading worldviews.

Apparently, I'm a postmodern Marxist, who knew!  lol.  Maybe I'll try it again and see if I figure out what answers would give me a "100% Christian" result.

Link?

Also, you're more a postmodern secular Marxist.

I'm going to go looking for that link for Summit Ministries.  I'd love to take the test.

Oh yeah, I should have included a link in the first place.

https://www.worldviewcheckup.com/cgi-bin/tssw12.cgi?f=SummitWVCU+139144

Just be warned, they do ask for your email, so they will send you a little bit of crap.

Eh, that's what spam filters and/or burner Gmail accounts are for.

(I get e-mails from one of the major "pro-life, pro-family" groups in the US and they all go straight to spam. I read them occasionally when I want to know what they think.)

EDIT:

Quote
0% Christian
33% Postmodern
0% New Spiritual
2.0% Islamic
37% Secular
29% Marxist

And they didn't ask for any e-mail address.

Anyway, that was good for a chuckle.

0% Christian
22% Postmodern
0% New Spiritual
2.4% Islamic

I've no idea what postmodernism even means in terms of religion, but whatever it is, I apparently agree with 22% of it. Fucking fantastic, I suppose.

I suspect that 2 or so percent "Islamic" comes from the question about whether Allah and Yahweh are the same.

I wondered that as well.  I can't imagine in what other respect I would be Islamic in my thoughts and beliefs.

I dunno where the fuck it got "Islamic" from, but whatever.  Quite a few of the questions were vague, and at least one didn't have an answer that I felt was most applicable to me (nothing happens after we die, we just cease to be).  Though, I'll admit, I've seen far worse out of internet surveys in the past.

I think the "Islamic" part has to do with what you said about Allah and Yahweh being the same. (And maybe one or two other things in there about Islam and the Qu'ran, I can't recall everything.) Note that we're all getting around 2% Islamic.

I suspect the 6% marxist was for the society questions I answered. But I suspect if Jesus did their test he would be predominantly Marxist.
