You Scored as Divine Command
Your life is directed by Divine Command: Your god and religion give you meaning and direction. “Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations.”

Divine Command

Hedonism

Well, no surprise there. I am ruled by God, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun!

Christianity is a relationship, not a religion.

You Scored as Existentialism

Your life is guided by the concept of Existentialism: You choose the meaning and purpose of your life. “Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.” “It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.” --Jean-Paul Sartre “It is man's natural sickness to believe that he possesses the Truth.” --Blaise Pascal More info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Arocoun

I was expecting Utilitarianism, but this is not surprising either.

Seems to be mostly existentialism and divine command among the people that have taken it.

And Hedonism, don't forget hedonism!
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Utilitarianism

Seems like most existentialists are atheists/have little concern for divine command...

Just in general.

Hey, I'm not the only one who ended up with Divine Command.

Divine Command 
 80%
Justice (Fairness) 
 60%
Utilitarianism 
 55%
Existentialism 
 45%
Hedonism 
 40%
Kantianism 
 35%
Apathy 
 30%
Strong Egoism 
 30%
Nihilism 
 5%

Most of my answers were slightly agree/slightly disagree, which I guess is why most numbers are close to the middle.  Screw you, Nihilism.
Probably not a Goat, either.
