hi Dena!

Welcome back!

you posted:
> I think this is the end of my two weeks of being blocked. I guess if I'm wrong, this won't post. Not surprisingly, I suppose, my results of this quiz are quite different from those who've already posted. I found the questions to be a bit narrow - I found myself wanting to expound a bit before answering. Oh well.

> 1. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (99%)
> 2. Eastern Orthodox (100%)
> 3. Roman Catholic (100%)
> 4. Seventh Day Adventist (91%)
> 5. Orthodox Quaker (88%)
> 6. Orthodox Judaism (69%)
> 7. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (67%)
> 8. Islam (62%)
> 9. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (60%)
.... ....

> 25. New Age (12%)
> 26. Secular Humanism (9%)
> 27. Taoism (6%)

> I'd have to say I agree with the results. I'm neither Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, nor Protestant, but a blend of the three... I'm a back-to-the-first-thousand-years-of-Christianity-when-there-was-just-"The-Church"-kind-of-gal. Back when people knew Jesus first-hand & carefully passed on His teachings without adding, deleting or changing anything to suit themselves.

and here i'm posting in response:
thank you so much for your particpation on our Belief-O-Matic thread! ... i have read your previous posts and i want to tell that, although we could hardly have more divergent views, i have the utmost respect for your perspectives, and i deeply admire the honesty and forthrightness with which you are willing to express your private, personal faith.

i am honored to see your belief-o-matic results and i am impressed by two things:
your validation of its ability
(whatever that may be i leave open for further discussion ... please (?))
and
How does Mr.Belief-O-Matic's system manage to rank you as :

"1. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (99%)
2. Eastern Orthodox (100%)
3. Roman Catholic (100%)" ... ... ?

where your #1 is 99%, when #2 and #3 are each 100% ... ...
... to me, this neither makes any sense nor would seem to be possible
... although it makes things more interesting ... and mysterious ...

and i am more impressed with your statement of your faith
.... .... Jesus' Own Faith which He shared while He walked this earth as Jew, is at least as esoteric as my beloved Mahayana
... ... and as mysterious, for all the effort to distill its essense from the centuries of accumulated doctrinal church dogma
... (not that those are such bad things in and of themselves for those devout within the orthodoxy .... ... may all civility be praised!) ... ...

lest i cross any lines of the pBabble civilized, i'll quit now with my apprecation of your sharing your belief-o-matic with us ..... Thanks and very

Glad to have you back!
~ jim
