Scary test

I just took the strangest quiz. It is given by Worldview Weekend Seminars. The quiz was fairly simple, although a little long. I scored well as a Biblical Worldview Thinker, but I was disturbed by the evaluation of my individual answers. Although I was given a choice of "no opinion", "tend to agree" and "tend to disagree", selecting these answers actually count against your score. You must only mark "Strongly Disagree" or "Strongly Agree". I am all for a biblical worldview, but this group seems to give the impression that individual thought is wrong and should be punished. I recommend the Confessional Christian Worldview Seminar as a much more gospel-based educational program. Those teachers aren't afraid to let you think on your own.

Your classification is: Strong Biblical Worldview Thinker

Congratulations You Are A Strong Biblical Worldview Thinker.

Your score is: 136 points of 170 possible, 80%

Scoring/Ratings Chart
Strong Biblical Worldview Thinker

Socialist Worldview Thinker
0% - 24%
Communist/Marxist/Socialist/Secular Humanist Worldview Thinker
under 0%

Here's the interesting kicker:
To improve your biblical worldview or that of your teen we recommend the following things:

1. Attend a Worldview Weekend near you.

2. Read these books:

Mind Seige by Dr. Tim LaHaye and Dr. David Noebel God & Government I, II, and III by Gary DeMar No Retreasts, No Reserves, No Regreats, by numerous authors Original Intent by David Barton Reasons for Believeing By Frank Harber The Battle For Truth, by David Noebel Revised and Expanded Answers Book by Ken Ham Thinking Straight in a Crooked World by Gary DeMar

3. Then retake the test and see what improvements you or your teen have made.

4. Study the following list for your "wrong" answers.

I scored a 70% which makes me 'moderate.'

This is mainly because I:

a) Believe in the doctrine of vocation, rather than the idiocy they were peddling.

b) Don't buy into the 'America was founded on biblical principles' lie.

Eleven reasons to have your teens attend the Confessional Worldview Seminar at the Schwan Center instead of the Worldview Weekend:

1) Better and more discerning speakers.

2) Those of legal age can drink beer. Try that at the other conference!

3) You won't have to constantly talk about "what the Lord is doing
in me." Yada yada.

4) Beautiful surroundings.

5) The speakers will present a Lutheran worldview, which means

6) No Bapticostal spiritual cloud hangin' 'round.

7) Theology of the Cross? Law and Gospel? Guess which one you won't hear those at?

8)People are more normal.

9)"God and Country" is treated in terms of the doctrine of two kingdoms, like it should be.

10)You'll learn to truly think theologically.

11) Schwan Center=catholic

Excellent comments! Thanks to all! Last night, it occurred to me that I was missing something else... There was never any scriptural support given for the "correct" answers. Lots of book titles, but no scripture references. Isn't that a bit odd? Actually not surprising. Yet another thing I love about the confessional Lutheran church; never a doctrine not based in scripture.

When you know you're right, you don't need Scripture.

I took the no goodnik World View quiz and somehow (brain spasm) allowed them to get my email address. They've been spamming up my inbox ever since. Grrr.

TKls2myhrt said...

Oh no! I'm sorry! Actually, I gave them my email also (part of taking the quiz) and have only received one email with the quiz results and my lovely certificate.

CPA said...

No, it wasn't you. It took it a while ago. Let me tell you the invitations will come every week or so for the rest of your life.

Does anyone else find it vaguely humorous that the Worldview Weekend photo of Ken Ham, who dedicates his life to arguing against evolution, makes him look like an extra on Planet of the Apes?
