Another quiz: What is the Kingdom of God?

I just found this quiz entitled What is the Kingdom of God? As this subject interests me, I will put myself in a theological box, as they put it in the post where I found the link to this quiz, even though it is not Friday. So here are my results:

You scored as The Kingdom as a counter-systemThis approach has been adopted by Anabaptist and similar groups who saw themselves as recapturing the essence of true Christianity in opposition to a “Christianised” society and an institutional church.

Interesting to see that I came out with the Anabaptist position of a Christian counter-system, although I wasn’t consciously thinking on those lines. But, and this is one of the points which I had trouble explaining to John Hobbins in our discussions on pacifism, I don’t take this to the extreme of withdrawing from the world, and so some of my answers reflected my position that I should be seeking to bring the values of this counter-system into the wider society.

  1. I don’t fit any of these all that well. My highest is 85%. I think there’s a lot of truth to a few of them but that they shouldn’t be taken reductionistically, and most of them say at least something that I think is pretty far off from the biblical presentations of the “rule of God” (perhaps a better translation, by the way; see R.T. France’s work on the kingdom).

    You scored as The Kingdom is mystical communionThe Kingdom is mostly mystical communion. You place a strong emphasis on continuity with those who have gone before you in the faith, and you might see the Kingdom of God as primarily a matter of spirituality.

  4. “Behold! The Kingdom of Heaven(GOD) is within you!”

    And The Hope of The Gospel? “The Kingdom of Heaven(GOD) is at hand!”

    “THY Kingdom” DID “Come”!

    All Thanks And Praise Unto Our Father!

    And hope is that there would be those who would experience The Miracle that is receiving “a love of The Truth” for only then will they “see” The Kingdom!

    Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this wicked world, for “the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” (I John 5:19) indeed and Truth……. francisco
