As I've looked around Theologica, read through the forums, blogs, and comments, I feel quite young. There seems to be such a wealth of knowledge and experience among the members here (something I am taking advantage of while it is available) that it is almost intimidating.
Many of you have been so kind (relatively ;-p) to answer questions I've had, or post comments on my blog posts. I was wondering if I might be so bold as to ask you of your experience. What is your background? Did you attend Bible College, Seminary, etc.? Did you read everything you could get your hands on? Did you have someone who had gone before you to help lead the way? Do you teach, preach, or simply study that you might love the Lord our God with heart, mind, and soul?
I'm curious because I've learned, and I am learning, by way of hard knocks. I read everything I can. My Bible is my Bible and I can't live without it. I'll be starting school soon to pursue Theology further. Any advice?
