About two years ago, I took a quiz on my theological world-view. I was curious whether my thoughts had changed in two years, so I retook the quiz this morning, here is a comparison of my results:

I haven’t really changed at all. I find that interesting. I think it is good that I seem steady in my beliefs. Of course, who knows if this is really accurate at all, especially considering I am an Assembly of God minister and pentecostal is only my fourth highest!

Princess had a dream last night. It was really wonderful!

She dreamed that Jesus was on the Cross and she was on the cross with Him. They both died and then rose again. Mary was sad and didn’t see the tomb. Then two angels came. One stood at the head and one at the foot. Then Mary saw a man and said, “Are you the gardener?” The man said, “I’m your God” and Princess was on Jesus’ back. (That is the quick version of what she said; most wording exact.)

How very theological of her. She amazes Chris and I daily with her wisdom. Mark 10:13-16 says,

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. (NIV)

Princess, who will be 5 in December, accepted Jesus into her heart at the age of three. Her amazing understanding of theological truths can only come from her listening to God. We already allow her to take communion because of what we see her understanding. I know that only God can impart such knowledge and that because she is a child she is more open to it than most adults. I thank God for allowing us the opportunity to raise our two wonderful children and for giving us the ability to help them learn more about God. We do devotions every night, but just reading Bible stories cannot impart the knowledge that Princess has. And really, the only reason we do devotions so regularly is because Princess refuses to go to bed without it. Thank you Princess for your child-like devotion to our wonderful God and Savior.

  I took a quiz to see which theological tradition best fits me. Here are my results. I found it very interesting since I am a Minister in the Assemblies of God, which is pentecostal.You scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan. You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God’s grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavily by John Wesley and the Methodists.
