Hhmm...I scored a 49 on the Hermeneutics quiz which puts me in the conservative bracket. The definition, according to the authors of the quiz is: ...the conservative hermeneutic group scores 52 or lower. The strength of this view is its emphasis on the authority, ongoing and normative authority, of all of Scripture. It tends to operate with the line many of us learned in Sunday school: "If the Bible says it, that settles it." Such persons let the Bible challenge them with full force. Literal readings lead to rather literal applications. Most of the time. I can live with that. Its difficult for anyone to fall into one bracket but I think I'd rather be tied to being a conservative in this case rather than falling in with one of the other two. Take the quiz and see where your leanings are.
