I have long been confused, "agnostic", uncertain, and a mind changer when it comes to religion and faith.
I know what I don't believe in. That's easy.
Not so sure what I do believe in though, if anything.
I found this website that asks 20 or so questions and then analyzes your beliefs and aligns your beliefs with the closest religion to your beliefs. It was interesting!
I was raised Catholic. However, according to this quiz, Roman Catholic is at the bottom of my belief system. Here are my results for anyone who is interested:
|1.||Unitarian Universalism (100%)|
|2.||Liberal Quakers (99%)|
|4.||Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (90%)|
|5.||Secular Humanism (88%)|
|6.||New Age (84%)|
|7.||Mahayana Buddhism (80%)|
|8.||Theravada Buddhism (73%)|
|9.||Reform Judaism (72%)|
|11.||Baha'i Faith (60%)|
|12.||Orthodox Quaker (57%)|
|15.||New Thought (56%)|
|18.||Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (41%)|
|19.||Orthodox Judaism (40%)|
|22.||Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (27%)|
|23.||Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (27%)|
|24.||Seventh Day Adventist (26%)|
|25.||Eastern Orthodox (24%)|
|26.||Roman Catholic (24%)|
|27.||Jehovah's Witness (14%)|
I'm not even sure what Unitarian Universalism is.... I'll have to look it up.
What are your results? Go to this website and take the quiz, then come back and let me know. I know a lot of adoptive families are Christian, and adopt due to the whole "caring for widows and orphans" passage in the Bible. I'm definitely not one of them. I adopted because I wanted to be a parent and I was single. Also because I grew up in developing countries and that left an indelible mark on me as far as helping out those less fortunate, as well as being highly aware of other world cultures. Plus I'm drawn to the Ethiopian people. I find them an attractive people so in thinking about which country to adopt from, that part was easy enough for me.
I will most likely raise Charlie in my own unsure beliefs. In a way, I would hope that she had a stronger faith, as I think that can help one get through life. But I can't teach her something I don't know myself. I will allow her to discover her own heart in this matter. Whatever she wants to pursue, if anything, I will back her up. As long as it's not Sun Young-Moon or David Koresh, etc!
So... what are your beliefs? Did the quiz get it right?
