You Might Be a Theological Liberal If...

1) If you haven't brought your Bible to teach Sunday School in 15 years...

2) If you don't think a loving God would really send anyone to Hell for doing something wrong...

3) If you think you understand the Old Testament better than Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John...

4) If you think what Jesus really wanted to hear when He asked the disciples to identify the Son of Man was something like, "You're the demythologized essence of kerygmatic truth!"

5) If you cringe whenever someone prays, "Our Father who art in Heaven..."

6) If you think that Jesus went to the Cross merely to show us a good example of obedience and self-discipline...

7) If you believe Jesus was the first socialist...

8) If you refer to Christians who believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ as "ultra-conservative fundamentalists"...

9) If you think that 19th-20th century German theology was the bastion of orthodoxy...

10) If you fear that confessions of faith may lead to a general doctrinal consensus...

Then you might be a Theological Liberal.
