Five Questions to Describe a Christian

Five Questions to Describe a Christian April 12, 2012

I’m just starting a very exciting research project in which we’re looking to study day-to-day spiritual experiences. This got met thinking about measuring Christian spirituality from an applied, rather than academic, perspective.

So, here’s my question. How would you measure the quality of someone’s Christian faith (how good of a Christian they are, how much they live out the faith… not sure how to word it), how would you do it?

Specifically, how would you gauge someone’s Christian faith if you could only ask 5 true-false questions? What would those questions be? (And why)

So, basically, I would like to crowd-source this research puzzle. I have some ideas, but they feel very incomplete, so I would like your input.

Feel free to post your ideas as comments or e-mail them to me at

Thank you! I look forward to reading what you have to say.
