A little diversion

Battleground God is a survey made up of seventeen questions that tests your logical consistency on the God question. Not being a wooden-headed Calvinist, and relishing the "creative tension" in life and theology, I thought I might do rather badly. But... ta da!

You have been awarded the TPM medal of honour! This is our highest award for outstanding service on the intellectual battleground. The fact that you progressed through this activity neither being hit nor biting a bullet suggests that your beliefs about God are internally consistent and very well thought out.

A direct hit would have occurred had you answered in a way that implied a logical contradiction. You would have bitten bullets had you responded in ways that required that you held views that most people would have found strange, incredible or unpalatable. However, you avoided both these fates - and in doing so qualify for our highest award. A fine achievement!

So why not try it out for yourself? Especially if you're a devotee of Calvin, Barth, Torrance or any of that ilk...


  1. I check out your website each day....I received the 2nd highest award from the test....Some of the questions required thought.....

  2. I also got the 2nd highest award, had to bite one bullet. Interesting survey.


  3. I forget what I got the first time I saw this, but I took zero bullets, too...mainly because I operate from the premise that "men create gods" -- and that's the basis from which I answered the questions.

    Does God exist? Every believer has their own god, right inside their own heads. Sometimes to tragic effect, but, what can you do?
