Libertarian Purity Score: 83 Scary high. The last part of the test probably knocked my score down considerably. I am not sure how much weight I would put on such a score. The Christian view of the state and society is quite different from that of libertarianism. I may be convinced that statism is rife in our day and age, but I am equally convinced that libertarianism is not the biblical alternative. Besides, many of the approaches to 'Christian libertarianism' that I know of are developed by a narrow understanding of the regulative principle (an understanding that I do not share). I also believe that the Bible teaches a valid place for certain forms of welfare.
