I did it too! It said Eastern Orthodox or Roman Catholic 100%, haha, I guess maybe it is rather accurate. :)

It told me 100% Unitarian Universalist... that's the church I've been attending for the last 9 months or so and am in the process of joining!

I've actually used this test before. And it's funny... 5 or 6 years ago, it told me I was in the high 90%'s Catholic... (I was raised Catholic) and as my views have shifted and things have changed in my life, the test has brought UU up to the top of the list. Funny how it works. One of our ministers even recommended it during a sermon a while back! :)

I have been reading up a little on the Quakers and YES it does seem to work really well :D

A friend of mine is a Quaker, and it's always kind of fascinated me. Though I don't think I'd like the silent services.... :)

there isn't a group of Friends in my area so i think the Protestant church, 99% fit, will do LOL

I find the voluntary simplicity attractive as I do the spirit of good works to serve the Lord, sort of how I live my life already, wearing socks with holes sometimes, buying second hand, eating homemade simple (ish) food and the excess off my income has gone to charity. However this has mainly grown from humanitarian considerations and not a wish to earn "brownie points" God loves me anyway, but I love Him and all people and it seems natural to want to help out when I can

"Good works, such as humanitarian service, social justice, and peace efforts, are an expression of Christian love. Simplicity and humility are viewed as essential to living a Christian life. " (from the site)

and the silent services would bore me, at least at first until I got used to it I suppose. Maybe I should learn to slow down my mind....
