"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Certified "100% Chalcedon compliant"

Another amusing theological quiz, to determine one's heretical proclivities. (Hat tip to Canterbury Tales.) I turned out to be--drum roll please--"100% Chalcedon compliant." I am a bit confused as to how I could have lurking Nestorian and Apollinarian/Monophysite tendencies at the same time, however. Having an undercurrent in one's thought that is simultaneously both partially Alexandrian and partially Antiochian makes one Chalcedonian, doesn't it? Go figure.

"You are Chalcedon compliant. Congratulations, you're not a heretic. You believe that Jesus is truly God and truly man and like us in every respect, apart from sin. Officially approved in 451.

Chalcedon compliant 100%
Nestorianism 42%
Apollinarian 33%
Pelagianism 33%
Monophysitism 33%
Arianism 0%
Monarchianism 0%
Adoptionist 0%
Docetism 0%
Donatism 0%
Albigensianism 0%
Modalism 0%
Gnosticism 0%
Socinianism 0%"

You may take the entire quiz here. The image above is of St. Leo the Great of Rome, author of the famous Tomus endorsed at the Fourth Ecumenical Council (Chalcedon) in 451 A.D. "Peter has spoken through Leo!"

Hmm...rather Monophysite and literally semi-Pelagian. In my defense, my present parish is rather Arian, so I need to overcompensate.
