Purpose + Directions
This survey is an individual assessment to help you evaluate your motives, intentions, and desires when it comes to seeking the Lord. It was not created so you walk away feeling like a “bad” Christian. In fact, I have been on the opposite ends of the pendulum when it comes to emotionalism and intellectualism. I know what it’s like to want to feel God, and I know what it’s like to want to acquire knowledge for the sake of being right. So please know that no matter what your results yield, I’ve been there.
Please keep these things in mind as you take this quiz:
I am in no way a psychologist or counselor. I am a woman of God who looks at everything through a Biblical lens. With that said, this is not a survey that is the end-all be-all when it comes to examining your heart. Take everything to God in prayer and look at this survey as added insight.
No one from Her Faith Inspires is keeping a record of your data. We are not tracking your answers. This is strictly for your eyes only. So be as honest as you can while answering the questions because you will only get out of it what you put into it.
In 2 Corinthians 13:5, Paul said, “Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.” It is not unhealthy to examine ourselves to test our motives, intentions, and desires before the Lord. In fact, we are commanded to do so. Keep that in mind as you answer these questions. It will make your survey results more honest and insightful.
