About This Quiz

Whatever your particular faith tradition looks like, if you are a believer then you can always be sure that you were made in the image of the divine, and that means that you have a spark in you that transcends any particular ritual or belief. However, the rituals and specific traditions of our faiths can be extremely important to us. They help us to bond with our community of fellow believers. They help us to understand the infinite and what it means to us. They instruct us in how to show our gratitude and how to bring grace to the world through charitable deeds and acts of kindness. They are there for us when we marry, when we bring new life into the world, and when we depart this life.

Most people tend to adhere to the faith in which they were raised, while others find solace in a new faith. Some have no faith at all, but still a sense of the divine or spiritual. How you live your life is thus inevitably guided by what your religious background taught you, or what you learned from the faith you chose. Tell us a little about yours and we’ll guess what religion you identify with!
