I have a simple question...
When did Paul join the Trinity?
It seems like he took Jesus' place. I've seen reference in certain comments that Paul's writings shouldn't be discarded because they are "God-breathed". I agree - but I believe there's two categories of Scripture: Those that are God-breathed and those that are God-spoken.
The Gospels, to me, are God-spoken. Those who wrote each book physically interacted with Jesus - He spoke to them, He touched them, they shared meals together, etc. Our deity was physically present.
Paul, along with every other prophet and person in the Bible, experienced God (although Paul had an intense experience) - thus the texts that they wrote and were recorded about them are classified as God-breathed.
We all order passages and books of the Bible in significance. For example, I'd venture to say that most modern Christians eat pork, thus that part of the Bible has now taken a back-seat.
Since we routinely pray to Jesus, not Paul, please pardon me for my "moderate" or *gasp!* "liberal" belief that the Gospels hold a place of significance slightly higher than the rest of the Bible.
You know, that whole "CHRISTian" thing. Does this belief prevent me from fellowshipping with Southern Baptists?
