In The Problem of Pain, written in 1940, Lewis showed his willingness to accept virtually any view of evolution provided the biblical doctrine of the Fall was retained. 13 However, by 1951 that tone was changing, and Lewis wrote to the same Captain Acworth: ‘What inclines me now to think you may be right in regarding [evolution] as the central and radical lie in the whole web of falsehood that now governs our lives is not so much your arguments against it as the fanatical and twisted attitudes of its defenders.’ 14 Lewis rarely intruded into the area of science as such but he was impressed by Acworth’s arguments, and wrote: ‘The point that the whole economy of nature demands simultaneity of at least a v[ery] great many species is a v[ery] sticky one.’14 For all that, Lewis refused to write a preface for an anti-evolutionary work on the grounds that he was known to be no scientist.

But my observation is that it is not only the pastor who causes unbiblical changes to influence a church. Although some feel that their faith needs no justification, many feel that Christians should be prepared to defend and spread their faith by intellectual means, especially as many people will not accept Christianity without a "rational" reason to do so. It is resourceful, helpful, detailed, and informative. Based on extensive research carried out in the Nuremberg papers, the Vatican War documents and Jewish historiography and backed by the testimony of prominent Jews, Michael O'Carroll C.

Any teaching within Christianity that goes against the Bible is classified as unorthodox or heterodox, thus it is unacceptable within the limits of Christian teaching. Of course, that doesn't mean he hasn't experienced seasons of doubt. In the hands of humans, good laws can be, and all too often have been, turned into instruments of injustice.

It is going to be radical because the basis for this message doesn't come from Jesus Christ visiting my room last night bodily, but from His holy written Word.
