Blame Joe Missionary

Joe posted a link to a survey about the denominational tradition you most closely match in this post, so of course I went to try it out. My first result had me at a 45% match with "Church of Christ/Campbellite", so I retook it a few minutes ago, trying to get the "right" answer. This time:

1: Pentecostal/Charismatic/Assemblies of God (100%)

2: Anabaptist (Mennonite/Quaker etc.) (89%)

3: Baptist (non-Calvinistic)/Plymouth Brethren/Fundamentalist (76%)

4: Seventh-Day Adventist  (72%)

5: Baptist (Reformed/Particular/Calvinistic)  (70%)

6: Congregational/United Church of Christ  (64%)

7: Presbyterian/Reformed  (61%)

8: Methodist/Wesleyan/Nazarene  (59%)

9: Eastern Orthodox  (50%)

10: Anglican/Episcopa l/Church of England  (49%)

11: Lutheran  (41%)

12: Roman Catholic  (36%)

13: Church of Christ/Campbellite  (30%)

This list is SO wrong. I can see scoring me higher in the Penecostal, I have some agreements with them over theological points, but Seventh-Day Adventist? I said that the New Testament doesn't specify a specific day of worship and/or Sabbath! And my "Campbellite" score is only 30%, but my "liturgical" denomination scores are higher when I specifically rejected liturgical and non-congregational organizations?

This test is all wrong.
