What kind of Christian are you?

One of my buds approached me at church last week and greeted me by saying, " 'sup ninja?" And my wheels started turning. I don't think he meant anything by it, but that's a pretty good description- I'm ruthless, deadly, skilled in the Art of War. Or then again, maybe I'm not. But I think that's a pretty good description of me as a Christian. So what kind of Christian are you?

  • Ninja: You work best behind the scenes. Effective and efficient. May never get credit and is seldom seen, but we know after you've been there, that the job got done.

  • Pirate: You're always seeking the next adventure. Your focus is on the treasure stored for you... somewhere marked with an 'x'. And you smell.

  • Rambo: Strong and independent. Out of place in the world because you were bred for battle. Better not get in your way.

  • Homer Simpson: You're clumsy and not very bright. But somehow, some way, everything seems to work out for you.

  • Ned Flanders: To quote a comedian I once heard, "you have every book of the Bible memorized, but you can't remember to turn off your turn signal." Your religiosity turns people off, but you're genuine and sincere.

  • Jack Bauer: Need something done? We turn to you. You'll do whatever it takes, though your morality can best be described as "grey".

  • Lost: No, not with respect to salvation, but referencing the TV show. You have a constant tension between faith and reason, science and the supernatural. Everyone is trying to figure out what makes you tick.

  • Superman: Seemingly invincible, nothing seems to shake your faith. But there's one thing that's your kryptonite, and it can kill you.

  • Spider Man: You keep your sense of humor in every trying circumstance. Your faith is stronger that it looks. But you don't choose the best of friends.

  • Simon Cowell: You always have an opinion. But you speak the truth in love (ok, I'm reaching here).

  • Meredeth Grey: You narrate your life as there always seems to be drama around you. You are a faithful friend, if indecisive.

  • Rocky: You can take a punch. You're an underdog. No matter how many times you get knocked down, you always get back up.

  • Jesus: 'nuff said.

So, what kind of Christian are you?

If none of the above, make up your own!

Reading the list made me too tired to answer. Still and all, good post.

@Jay: I think most of the visitors to this site are ninjas. I never know they were here, LOL.

@Thesauros: Welcome back! I guess that make you a sleepy Christian? I can relate to that many Sundays!

I think I'm Meredith Gray... and I'm not sure that's a good thing!
