With my interest in things historical and in traditions other than my own, I have thought a little about being protestant. The other day in a theological discussion I got asked why I’m not Eastern Orthodox since I give weight to church history in making theological decisions. I articulated a few things, but I think this recent post by Scot McKnight–Why I am not a Catholic or Eastern Orthodox–captures the main points in more detail, though I might articulate some things a little differently. For instance, I don’t think he mentions worship style. I’m a fan of liturgy but I also have an appreciation of the interaction that some modern worship styles offer.
