I took a quiz about my views on Culture & Our World and the Church and how they are tied to the Kingdom of God. Some of the questions were vague and/or contained logical fallacies, but it yielded thought-provoking results:
“You scored as Kingdom as a Christianised Society. Christians shouldn’t withdraw from the world, but by being present in it they can transform it. The kingdom is not only spiritual, but social, political, and cultural.”
I don’t know if I’m comfortable having my ideal packaged and labeled as the “Kingdom as a Christianized Society,” but I do like the explanation that follows it.
The quiz does spur some thought in me about my profession. Youth ministries should be places that encourage Christ-following students to relentlessly pursue that balance of not withdrawing from the world but being part of what’s going on and working for the resoration of everything.
I found the quiz through Tony Myles’ blog.
