The great problem, the one to which we point only with care is this: what wiil be allegory and what will be somrthing more.
  Among Jewish scholars would you be thinking of Maimonides?

  I can imagine a far worse "worst case scenario." It would be imprudent and impious to speak of such things here; what is more, it is hardly in the interest of every good Christian to face such a thing.

  It is neither. The churches are under attack and liberalizing because you can't rationally explicate their value from your pulpits and the imprudent and impious secular humanists are laughing at your failure and removing you from the public arena.
  I agree, it is not in the interest of EVERY good Christian to face such a thing. Some people have more understanding than others. A simple man who follows the literal text will BEHAVE the same way as a Christian scientist who apprehends the allegories. The bible addresses each of us at our level of apprehension. The Jewish scholars who study their own texts explicitly state this. That is what the allegories are for!
  That's why I came to Christian scientists. You have the intellect. You can understand the allegories if you want to and apprehend the rational efficacy of Christian beliefs and practices.
  And you know that wehen Jesus decided to go to Jerusalem, he was facing this very thing, and he says do not use your intellect to understand the law, apply faith, just write it on your heart.
  To rationally justify writing the law on your heart, you have to know its implications, rationally, personally, communally, for the kingdom of God Jesus said was here on earth, the one we can't see, which can be seen by rationally apprehending the law.
  That's what my review of Darwin's Cathedral revealed:
