Some myths of fundamental evangelical Christianity

The universe exists only 6000 years

In contrary I see no reason to assume that the calculation of “6-days” creation started with the first day of heaven.

I will write more later on my interpretation of “6 days” as 6 days or 6 arbitrary time periods. Now I will refrain of digging this topic further.

The second come of Christ will be in our century

It is true that Jesus Christ has said that he will come soon.

But there is no reason to assume that this “soon” means soon in human terms. I’d rather mean that this is be soon compared with the time universe may exist, what is milliards of years. So if Christ will come after a million years after now, it is indeed soon.

It was also concluded that because (2Pe. 3:8) “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” to six days of creation it should correspond 6000 years until the “day of Lord” (next 1000 years of Christ presence). This is an interesting idea, but this is a speculation which cannot be trusted, like we can trust the direct meaning of Bible.

For homosexuality comes God’s wrath on people

It is notorious among evangelical Christians that for homosexuality comes wrath on people such as fire from heaven. This is based on the biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah. These ancient cities were destroyed by God with fire.

Homosexuality is certainly a sin or a pathology.

But I assume that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for the attempt to rape the visitors rather than for homosexuality. Their attempt of homosexual rape is certainly much worse than plain homosexuality.
