Which Religion?

  1. I was born *+* (religion obscured so as not to offend others) but as I grew older I have had questions about that faith. Then I got confused which faith I really am or what I should be practicing.

    'thought you might want to test yourself, too and find out which religion you are inclined to. It's a 20-question quiz...

    Regardless, I suppose, there is only one Supreme Being.

    That was interesting. I was raised Roman Catholic - and don't believe EVERYTHING the church taught us - and this showed up in the quiz. I matched 100% with Orthodox Judeaism.

    hmmm.. according to the quiz, I match to Unitarian Universalism 100%. I read the description of it, and it seems to be one of the least restrictive I've read about. I guess that's good. I'll keep it in mind next time I'm out shopping for a new religion.
    Pretty neat to find a site that tells about so many different religions - I've been trying to find something similar but have had no luck.
    Thanks for posting this!

    I got the same as you pixxel. Of course, I haven't been to any church in YEARS. The funny thing is I was raised catholic like SusyK and that's the religion I matched the least (16%)!!! My grandma would be horrified!

    Ok, I had to take this Twice.....first time I didn't 'really' take it seriously, and I thought the questions it posed deserved some serious thought versus being superficial.....

    So, the first time .....I'm most closely matched (100%) with 'Liberal Protestant' NOT! -but maybe it said that because I married one? -he and I agree on some issues and agree to disagree on other issues. Now that I've taken it again, I think I realize that I was using my adaptations to answer the questions.

    Second time......100% match with Mahayana Buddism and 98% matched with Neo-Paganism (which makes sense when I read the description of what they call 'neo-paganism since I am Creek). 81% matched to Liberal Protestant...which my hubby would agree with, because I always find something I don't agree with or accept in his childhood faith.

    ....that was Really weird!

    100% Unitarian Universalist here too. Not surprising since I am a member of a UU fellowship. Very interesting that so many people are turning up with this result since UU's represent such a teeny fraction of the population. I think I know what accounts for it at least part of it though. Many people with this belief pattern are not aware of Unitarian Universalism, and those that are aware of it are often not the type who feel a need to join or attend a church or fellowship.

    I came up as a Latter Day Saint.....too bad I was raised as a Southern Baptist.....

    Orthodox Quaker by 75%???

    Not hardly.

    Oh, well.

    Wow-very interesting. I have not been to services in a long time and have not been closely observing my religion. I was raised as a Reform Jew, and my results came out to be 100% Reform Judaism. I was very surprised, as I always thought I had individual views on life, death, and creation that were opposed to those held by the Jewish faith-apparently I was wrong.

    This is quite validating to me! Thank you for sharing this link.

    Neo Pagan here, followed closely by unitarian universalist. We all search for meaning in our lives, espescially becuase we deal so closely with death. Maybe the quiz will stop me searching though, and that can never be a good thing. :0)

    I came out with a 100% in Liberal Quaker and 78% in Mormon, which is my actual religion, although i have not been to church for more than 10 years.(since about 9th grade)

    That is a really great website though. I love that it gives so much information about so many religions.

    Thanks
