Christians ought to strive to be like Jesus, the perfect example of living, but apparently, God has more nuanced plans in store for his believers. Consider that Jesus made it a point to choose 12 disciples with very distinct personalities to follow him. Toward the end of their relationship with Jesus, while he was on Earth, the disciples retained the essence of their personalities, which enhanced their missionary work. So never discount your attributes that God may choose to use to further his ministry among an assortment of people with various personalities.
Our personality quiz is set to help you nurture the characteristics that made the Bible heavyweights so great. Perhaps you're a rare personification of compassion, just as Jesus was. The prophets and Jesus played for the same "team," but the Old Testament prophets did not sugar-coat truth in the form of parables for easier consumption like Jesus did for the people. Many of the prophets were detested for delivering truth raw and uncensored unto elaborate kingdoms and mighty kings. Our religion personality challenge will help you to determine if you possess that level of focus paired with superhuman courage to face rulers who have the power to do with you as they will. But if you're like the prophets, you'll speak truth to power no matter what.
