Ever wonder why the “defense or proof of Christianity”, to quote my dictionary, is called apologetics?
I believe the dismissal of the most indefensible parts of the bible are effectively “apologetic”, in something of a perversion of the common meaning of the word. Rather than forgiveness, I believe acceptance, or “digestibility”, is the purpose. The product has to be agreeable, palatable, to keep the faithful coming and giving.
