  1. When thinking of salvation you draw on the old Smith Barney commercial (i.e., "We get to heaven the old fashioned way…. We earn it!")
  2. You think "Amazing Grace" refers to someone's girlfriend.
  3. You think the whole fuss about original sin is just sinfully wrong-headed.
  4. Simply hearing the name Augustine makes you break out in a rash.
  5. You think "propitiation" is something that happens to your heart when you over-exert yourself.
  6. The Beatles song which goes, "one two three four five six seven, all good children go to heaven" is in a continuous loop inside your head.
  7. Your last name happens to be Pelagius.
  8. You think the lines from Invictus "I am the master of my fate, the captain of my soul" are found in the book of Proverbs.
  9. You think "self esteem" is the most crucial component of sanctification.
  10. To the question, "What is your only comfort in life and death," you answer by saying, "That I am my own, and have been taught to be nice."
