Quiz: What Political Theology Are You?

May 1st, 2017 | 1 min read

By Jake Meador

NOTE: Matthew Loftus and Susannah Black assisted with the creation of this quiz.

Given the popularity of last week’s post indexing the various political theologies Christians might adopt today, we have created a quiz to help you figure out where you fit with the various options discussed last week.

One note: If you get “Liberal Protestant,” keep in mind that we don’t mean “theological liberal.” This is not a quiz about creedal orthodoxy, but about social order and how you understand Christian political theology. So you can be an entirely orthodox Christian and get “Liberal Protestant” on this quiz because you are on board with classical liberalism. If you’re more “Daniel Option” than “Benedict Option,” you probably are a Liberal Protestant as we’re defining our terms here.
