Normalt bryr jag mig inte om alla personlighetstester som finns ute på nätet, men ”The Hermeneutics Quiz” fångade mitt intresse. Scot McKnight har satt ihop denna test för Leadership Journal.net (Christianity Today), med syfte att få fram hur kristna läser och inte läser Bibeln.
The moderate hermeneutic might be seen as the voice of reason and open-mindedness. Moderates generally score between 53 to 65. Many are conservative on some issues and progressive on others. It intrigues that conservatives tend to be progressive on the same issues, while progressives tend to be conservative on the same issues. Nonetheless, moderates have a flexible hermeneutic that gives them the freedom to pick and choose on which issues they will be progressive or conservative. For that reason, moderates are more open to the charge of inconsistency. What impresses me most about moderates are the struggles they endure to render judgments on hermeneutical issues.
