This is not a litmus test for christian beliefs. What I’m about to say isn’t a test for whether someone is Christian or not. Nor is this a way for a person to test how many beliefs they must have to keep their salvation. This isn’t a math equation for figuring out if you’re in-or-out of the faith. This is an illustration that has all the weak spots of word pictures, but that I use to underscore the idea of what is central to historical Christianity and what might be more debatable.
Constantly jumping hurdles to different beliefs doesn’t earn you the wiser, scientific, and more mature gold medal: it just makes you restless.
Leaving a position doesn’t earn one an expert award on that prior position nor give one the advancement trophy on the new position.
