#1

I got a :

You are Augustine!
You love to study tough issues and don’t mind it if you lose sleep over them. Everyone loves you and wants to talk to you and hear your views, you even get things like “nice debating with you.” Yep, you are super smart, even if you are still trying to figure it all out. You’re also very honest, something people admire, even when you do stupid things.

I dunno how accurate this thing is. Well the, “you do stupid things” is pretty right on.


#3

You are Desiderius Erasmus!
You have great love for others and will do just about anything to show it to them. You are tolerant and avoid confrontations, so people generally are drawn to you. You are more quiet and reserved in front of strangers, but around some people you open up. When things get tough, you like to meditate alone. Unfortunately you often get things like “what a pansy,” or “you’re such a liberal.”

[size=2]Interesting…although I’m really not a liberal. http://forum.catholic.com/images/smilies/wink.gif [/size]


#4

I’m Augustine :slight_smile:


#5

Ok, I took this the first time and got

You are John Wesley!
When things don’t sit well with you, you make a big production and argue your way through everything. You complain a lot, but, at least you are a thinker and not afraid to show it. You are also pretty liked by people, and pretty methodological about your life and goals. You know where you’re going. Some people find you irritating, so watch out for people leaving you out of things they do.

This is definately not me, so I took it again:

You are Augustine!

You’re also very honest, something people admire, even when you do stupid things.

Well…I can’t say everyone loves me, but I have been told “it was nice debating with you”. I suppose this is better.


#6

OH NO!!! Look who I am…

**You are Martin Luther!
**Yeah, you have a way of letting everyone know how you feel, usually with Bible quotes attached, and will think your way through the issues, although sometimes you make no sense! You aren’t always sure of yourself, and you can change your mind about things, something you actually consider a strength. You can take solitude, especially with some music.


#7

Looks like we have to expel you from CA tkdnick!

#8

Augustine.


#9

The first time I took it it said “John Wesley”.

Then I went back and picked the most obnoxious answers I could…

and it returned Martin Luther!

Had to chuckle at that one… :stuck_out_tongue:

LOL!! :rotfl:


#12

I was Augustine…not that I mind, of course, but what does a feller got to do to become an Aquinas, who I was hoping to be like?


#13

It seems that the only possible theologians are Luther, Calvin, Augustin, Erasmus, Barth and Wesley…sorry no Aquinas.


#14

Mine came out Augustine too.

PF


#15

Augustine


#16

There was a thread I saw a while back that led to a much more comprehensive quiz of the same nature. Anyone wanting to do a search could find it, I’m sure. Wesley, Augustine, Luther would probably bring it up.

"We reject the false doctrine that the church could have permission to hand over the form of its message and of its order to whatever it itself might wish or to the vicissitudes of the prevailing ideological and political convictions of the day."
You are Karl Barth!
You like your freedom, and are pretty stubborn against authority! You don’t care much for other people’s opinions either. You can come up with your own fun, and often enough you have too much fun. You are pretty popular because you let people have their way, even when you have things figured out better than them.

Being Karl Barth is fine by me :smiley: - I’m certainly stubborn, and I do think freedom is very important


#19

Karl Barth
"You like your freedom, and are pretty stubborn against authority! You don’t care much for other people’s opinions either. You can come up with your own fun, and often enough you have too much fun. You are pretty popular because you let people have their way, even when you have things figured out better than them."

I got Barth originally so I retook the test. I don’t know what I was thinking the first time. I conform joyfully to authority. The only thing keeping me from being confrontational is giving too much credence to other people’s opinions. So yea, basically the opposite of Barth.

Augustine the second time! He’s the saint of my confirmation!


#20

I got Barth too.
strange, a few days ago I didn’t know what a Barth was now I are one :wink:

part of the problem was the limited range of options in some of the answers.
