Several years ago, Rev. Becky Strang suggested a site, Belief.Net, thinking I might like it. I did. With all the SBC email garbage, I relocated the site and signed up again.

I seldom take the quizzes, but this one seemed to strike me as interesting: “What religion are you?” In the box below this title, it reads, “Belief-O-Matic Knows.” I laughed, thinking it was more like one of those carnival gimmicks where you put a quarter into a machine, place your palm on the ball, and presto!

So here is my quizz…. I had to chuckle… loving nature, believing in reincarnation of the spirit, not believing in Satan, and believing more along the lines of Lutherans (grace) placed me in some wild categories.

A Personality quiz about your religious and spiritual beliefs

Your Results

The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.

Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

How did the Belief-O-Matic do?

1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
2. Liberal Quakers (90%)
3. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (88%)
