Richard's Simple Theo-Survey
Who were/are the top 3 Christian thinkers (apart from Jesus or the apostles)?
Lewis, Luther, Wesley
Do you think that the objects of theology are fundamentally rational?
What is the proper relationship between theology and philosophy?
God created thought, so perhaps Theology creates Philosophy?
What is the proper relationship between theology and science?
Science describes the world that God made. Science does not validate theology (nor should theologians expect it to).
What is the proper relationship between philosophy and science?
Philosophy describes the thoughts of science.
God: One Substance and Three Persons or Three Hypostatic beings?
Who sends the Holy Spirit? Does it matter?
Jesus SENT the HS. (OK, and God sent Him a few times too.) But He's here, and He's God. That's all that matters.
Does the host's meaning come from Transubstantiation, Consubstantiation, Symbolism, or something else?
Is it possible to belive the elements are symbolic and still believe there is power in communion? If not, I've gotta go with consubstantiation.
Natural theology: Nay or Yay?
Do you hold to any certain eschatological stance?
Dispensationist turned inaugurated enacted eschatologist with amillennialist leanings.
Human Will: Are you a libertarian, molinist, hard determinist, compatiblist, or something else?
Something else - can I call myself a conservative evangelical appealing to the fundamental belief in the inerrancy and sufficiency of scripture?
Apologetics: Do you prefer classical, evidential, presuppositional, existential or something else?
Mysticism: Does it (need to) play a role in a person's spiritual life?
Depends on your definition of mysticism.
Governance: Episcopal, Presbyterian, Congregational, Libertarian or other?
Should there be a sharp distinction between clergy and laity?
Do you agree with common law marriage?
No, but I'd certainly never tell someone that they are not married in the eyes of God or something if they had a common law marriage that was recognized by the state.
Should Christians fight during a war?
Yes, but only some wars
Same Sex Marriage or Civil unions: right, wrong or "who cares"?
Not my decision, thank goodness.

Are contemporary ethics really ethics?

Sad and sympathetic.

Should there be such a thing as Christian Pop Culture?
No, provided there is still a place to purchase Veggie Tales after CPC's demise.
Can a Christian vote Liberal/Left Wing/Democrat or Conservative/Right Wing/Republican?
A better question is "Can a Christian NOT vote, or vote for someone they wouldn't actually want to win?"
Should Christian's work to 'Christianise' the morality of their nation via censorship laws?
No. We live in a nation of notional Christians. Legislating moraltiy does more harm than good, makes more enemies than friends.
Can a Christian support the death penalty?
Where do you see the Western (North America/Europe) Christian church in fifty years? Small.
Loss of nominal Christians will be good b/c more solidarity, bad b/c of fewer believers.
Where do you see the southern (South America/Africa/Asia) Christian church in fifty years?
Huge. Leading the Western church.
Augustine, Aquinas, Pseudo Dionysus, Calvin, Luther, or Barth: Who would win in a bar fight?
Luther. Hands-down. One hand tied behind his back. On one leg. Blindfolded.
