Here are just a few questions to determine if you are an Arminian. This is
a light hearted look at the emotional base of the Semi/Pelagian doctrine.
Do not take this test too seriously as some have. I have missed a few on
this test myself. Have fun and read on....

1. Do you watch TBN (Trinity Broadcast Network)? if yes +1
2. Do you regularly come forward or feel compelled to come forward at the end of a church service when the pastor gives the altar call? if yes +1
3. Do you replace the word 'think' with the word 'feel' when using a
sentence? (ie. "I feel that the answer to the question is true.") if
yes +1
4. Do you now carry, or have in your possession, any Jack Chick tracts?
if yes +1
5. When Billy Graham or Bill Bright speak does what they say elicit an
emotional response? if yes +1
6. Do you feel compelled to fast when you are searching for God's will? if yes +1
7. Do you attend a seeker service? if yes +1
8. Do you believe that Satan and his minions are in Hell torturing all
damned people? if yes +1

the Family? if yes +1
16. Do you believe in a Pre, Mid, or Post Tribulation rapture? if yes +2

18. Do you feel guilty and believe you could have done more if a loved one or close friend has died without accepting Christ as his/her savior? if yes +1
19. Have you used the words turn or burn or do you have any Christian bumper stickers on your car? These would also include the fish decal but would exclude pro life stickers. if yes +1
20. Does your pastor use extended draws at the end of sentences when he is preaching a sermon? ( ie. Praise the Lord..a, Praise God..a, amen....a) and does your pastor cry on a frequent basis when preaching a sermon? if yes +1
21. Do you have any books by Bill Hybels in your personal library? if yes +1
22. Do you attend any church that's name begins with United? if yes +2
23. Have you ever had a leg or finger lengthened at a healing service? if yes +1

32. Do you believe that, in your walk of faith, you may have lost your
salvation a time or two? if yes +1
33. Do you attend a Roman Catholic church? (if yes then deduct 10 points.
This would place you in the Pelagian circle of faith. If this were a board game then you would go to jail and collect nothing as you pass Go.)

oxymoron) if yes +4

38. Do you believe that Christ died for every single person that has lived or will live in the future? if yes +2
39. Do you attend church services on Saturday? ( I ask this because some churches have a believers service on Saturday and a seeker service on Sunday. If you answered yes to this question then you probably answered yes to question 7.) if yes +1
40. Does you church use a Catechism? if no +1
41. Do you raise your hands during a church service? if yes +1
42. Do you watch Oprah? if yes +1 ( you may think this has no bearing on the test, but you would be wrong.)
43. Do you lock the doors, and turn out the lights during Halloween? If so then +1. If you lock the doors, turn out the lights and rock back and forth in a corner rebuking Satan then +3.
44. Do you believe that most of the troubles of mankind can be traced back to generational curses and omnipresent demons? ie. Do you believe that there is a demon of alcohol or tobacco making people sin? if so +1. If you do not know what the word omnipresent is then +2.
45. Do you believe that all references to the word wine in the Bible is actually referring to grape juice? if so then +1
46. Do you believe the word World in John 3:16 refers to every living being from past to future? if so then +1
47. Do you carry John 3:16 signs to sporting events? If so then please stop it, and subtract 1.
48. Do you believe that God is rooting for the team that has the most
Christians at sporting events? if so then +1
49. Do you believe Christian bookstores are actually Christian? if so
then +1
50. Do you believe that predestination is in the Bible? if not then +1

If you answered yes to 5 or more of these questions, or 10 points over all then you my friend are probably an Arminian. But fear not, this is curable. One can leave heresy. There are many people who have left the dark, man-centered ways of Semi/Pelagianism and have found fulfillment in a Reformed church. Remember, ignorance can be corrected.
