Real Live Preacher on Christianity as Poetry

Real Live Preacher writes:

“I would say that if Christianity is poetry, then the Bible is our syntax, meter, and rhyme. The Bible contains the rules, but sometimes we are free verse poets, pushing on the boundaries, edges, and gray areas. We stretch this grammar to the very breaking point at times, led by the Spirit. We are engaging the Creator morally, putting theological meat on our bones. And the poem we are creating is our very lives, filled with the hints we’ve received along the way and the stories of our search for God.�
