Since you all seem to like these quizzes, here's one each and every one of you REALLY SHOULD take. It's called the PEERS Test, put out by the Nehemiah Institute.

The PEERS Test is designed to identify your primary worldview in five areas of life: Politics (civil government), Economics, Education, Religion, and Social Issues (PEERS). The test will rate your views in one of four worldview categories: Biblical Theism, Moderate Christian, Secular Humanism or Socialism.

This quiz is extremely eye-opening. I would wager that once you take the test, you will be surprised, even shocked and mildly appalled at your results. You may be baffled to find that your worldview (the way you look at the world) resembles more of a secular humanist mindset that than of Biblical Christianity, thanks to the public education most of us have been brainwashed with.

While I'm on the subject, let me make a plug for Summit Ministries in Colorado Springs, CO. Summit’s mission is to equip Christians to defend the biblical worldview and expose the subtle lies of Secular Humanism. It is VITAL that each and every one of us know how to stand up against the "vain philosophy and empty deciet" being thrown at us from all directions. But we can't do that until we are able to recognize these philosophies. That's where Summit comes in. They have these amazing two-week summer conferences in Colorado Springs that equip men and women to recognize thinking that is contrary to Biblical Christianity and teach them how to defend their faith in all sorts of social, economic, religious and educational issues.

My Dad's church takes a handful of college kids out to this conference every year. I've been twice. It's truly amazing - it will change your life. I would highly recommend going, or if that's not possible, at least buying a copy of Dr. David Noebel's (President of Summit Ministries) book, Understanding the Times: The Religious Worldviews of Our Day.

There is also a video that you can watch that will tell you more about Summit and its mission.

All that said - PLEASE TAKE THE PEERS TEST. You will not find out your scores today. They will mail them to you along with a description of what they all mean. This is actually a mini-PEERS test. The full version is available to take on their website, but costs a couple bucks.

Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through empty philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2Cr 10:3-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
