I'm saved. Apparently.

I often troll through Lark News... just because they make me laugh at the crazy ways people in the USA think that being a "Christian" must be defined. I finally got around to taking their EQ test (Evangelical Quotient) based on Joel Kirkpatrick's book "A Field Guide to Evangelicals and Their Habitat"...

...and I won't tell you what I scored, but I'll give you a clue. I'm saved. Apparently.

The categories (by points) were:
125-150 points Very evangelical.
75-124
points Somewhat evangelical.
25-74
points Backslidden.
0-24
points Unsaved.

Sometimes, the subculture that claims exclusive rights to Christianity really REALLY gets to me, so I need to go read where the saracasm drips from the fonts off of the page. Where I wince at the painful truth. Where I am reminded to look at who I am and how I live out my life and my faith. And sometimes, just being a pot-stirrer is a whole lotta fun!

P.S. The shirt is on sale here.

Uh-oh. I'm "Backslidden"

Wait - is that even a word?

Ooh ... I love that shirt! If I still wore t-shirts in that vein that would be one I'd want.

I couldn't finish the test ... too many questions had no answer for me. Go figure. (But yes, I'm a Christian. And an oboist. Hmm. Can you be both? ;-)

Yup, I'm backslidden too! Doesn't that also refer to a skin condition on the back?

Oh, I so understand what you're getting at.

Hello by the way, just dropping on a random visit of CWO blogs. I've enjoyed reading!

I'm off to see how I rank ;)
