"N.B. - I am not saying that one has to _accept_ such approaches in order
to be theologically informed. "
Fair enough. I see your point.
Here is how I see it (part of the issue):
Assume for argument that there are only two positions
available, TE and PC.
What I see is a great lack of data to select from among these positions.
What I also see is a great desire on most people to select one of these
positions and defend it. (I include myself in this).
What I am coming to think is that, on the basis of the lack of data,
that claiming and defending one of these positions, at least
is both a waste of time and ultimately self-defeating.
But that's just my Tuesday morning musings. Lost a good friend this
to a stroke (she was only in her 40s and had so much to give people). God
moves in mysterious ways and in those ways I haven't a clue sometimes.
