Thanks (I think) to John for this reassuring news..
though having done the express ordination course,
I have to say that I'm pitifully ignorant of some of
the minor heretical traits I apparently possess.
Not surprised at the Pelagianism, - detected whiffs
of that before,- but some of the others. Hmmnnn.
Should I abandon all attempts to produce a sermon
for Sunday and resign my Orders immediately?
or just carry on believing that God is a whole lot
bigger than even the interminable councils of the
Church? The second option is, on the whole, the
more attractive,- even though it does entail another
close encounter with the pulpit.

Don't worry, it turns out I'm only 83% Chalcedon compliant - with tendencies towards Monarchianism and Pelagianism. But then the minute any of us attempt to talk about the Trinity or the incarnation we probably slip into some heresy anyway...

Happy New Year!

Happy New year Kathryn.

I was 100% Chalcedon compliant, yet I was also quite a bit of other things as well - but perhaps that's the problem with good heresies, they are nearly true ;-)

I was
Monophysitism 75%
Modalism 67%
Chalcedon compliant 58%

I have not the slightest idea what any of this means! :-(

What I found difficult was answering the questions, since I often thought "hmm, nearly but not quite"!

Off-topic, but .... I couldn't find an e-mail anywhere to add you to the Bible Blog -- could you send it? Glad to have you join us!

I really wanted to find out if I'm a heretic, but the link doesn't take me to the quiz, but to the Quizfarm homepage, and the search engine knows nothing of heresies.

Kathryn said...

That's weird, Alice...it was the link that came with the results, but I quite agree it doesn't work. So, I've tried another way and I think I've fixed it, though it may have made the text of my results unreadable, as they seemed to be spilling into the side bar a moment ago. Wish I could do this techie stuff :-(
Still, you should now be able to assess your heresies!

Bad Alice said...

Thanks, Kathryn. I was relieved to find that I am also 100% Chalcedon compliant, although I have no idea what that means. I had quite a bit of Pelagianism. I think I need to go do some reading.

Gord said...

I "passed" as well..if that really matters. But I do find in reading the list of isms that there are many I am no longer able to define.

I agree with your second option as well--God is definitely bigger and more beyond description than the Church (ancient or modern) is willing to admit.
