The Hermeneutics Quiz

My girls are forever taking on-line quizzes. They’ll sit there giggling and bonding as they try to discover together which Harry Potter character each is, or which “Saved By The Bell” character each is most like. I just sit and quietly listen to the laughter and thank God that I have kids.

Well, last month I took a quiz to discover which theologian I am, and now I found The Hermeneutics Quiz. Here are my results:

  • Score 56
  • Evaluation You scored between a 53 and 65, meaning you’re a moderate on The Hermeneutics Scale. To learn more about what this means, click here.

For moderates it says:

The moderate hermeneutic might be seen as the voice of reason and open-mindedness. Moderates generally score between 53 to 65. Many are conservative on some issues and progressive on others. It intrigues that conservatives tend to be progressive on the same issues, while progressives tend to be conservative on the same issues. Nonetheless, moderates have a flexible hermeneutic that gives them the freedom to pick and choose on which issues they will be progressive or conservative. For that reason, moderates are more open to the charge of inconsistency. What impresses me most about moderates are the struggles they endure to render judgments on hermeneutical issues. [emphasis added]

I can live with that.
