  • Biological evolution is the force that quite simply destroys Biblical soteriology, with two competing salvage strategies:

    1. Twist evolution into a laughable “intelligent design.”

    2. Twist the Bible into laughable interpretations like this:

    Just as it was in the days of [figurative/literal] Noah, so also will it be in the days of the [figurative/literal] Son of Man. ~Luke 17:26

    For just as through the disobedience of the [figurative/literal] one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the
    [figurative/literal] one man the many will be made righteous. ~Romans 5:19

    For as in [figurative/literal]Adam all die, so also in [figurative/literal] Christ all will be made alive. ~1 Corinthians 15:22

    Neither preservation strategy is going to salvage soteriology.

    But Christianity need not be given up on Jesus and Christianity, if one simply jettisons soteriology as a Pauline corruption. That’s what Thomas Jefferson did.

    Like cutting the ropes on the rigging in Master and Commander when a man went overboard, it’s time to cut the rope to Paul. Yeah, it’ll be sad.

    Or let the Christian ship sink.
