I had a long conversation recently with someone who is thinking about writing a book about the kingdom. The intent of this young scholar was to define kingdom, which is an altogether good idea since most write about the kingdom and don’t define it. Which means most gravitate to the center of their theology for defining kingdom, and more often than not that center is not a kingdom center. So, when I saw this test at Hamo’s blog I had to see where I was.
Take it and tell me your results. Here are mine. I don’t even like the idea of a “mystical communion” but the idea of a communion of saints, past, present and future seems to be what that stands for. I think kingdom is the societyin which God’s will is done.

You scored as Kingdom as a Christianised Society. Christians shouldn’t withdraw from the world, but by being present in it they can transform it. The kingdom is not only spiritual, but social, political, and cultural.
