Which part of the bible shapes and drives your Christian spirituality? What turns your “theological crank”—Paul’s letters or the gospels of Jesus?
In my evangelical upbringing, the Old Testament and Paul’s epistles were preached from more often. So I’d have to say that the Old Testament and Paul’s epistles have been the early shaper of my Christian theology. However, later in life, as I began attending Lutheran churches, the gospels of Jesus were preached from more often. Now later on in my life, the teachings of Jesus have been a shaper of late. However, at this point in my life, I feel a need to return to more of the teachings of Old Testament and of Paul’s epistles.
Does anyone out there feel the same way too?
