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!

@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!
