Guys, you're missing my point. Christology must be done, and done for each generation, and it must be done in relation to surrounding cultures. The early 21st Century culture of the western academic tradition can be a hostile environment – for Christological reasons. ‘Political correctness’ can probably be most simply defined as a secularist reaction to Christianity, guilty of most of the world’s ills from colonialism, to slavery, homophobia, prison-like marriages, oppression of women, racism and the like. ‘Pluralism’ seems to be the corollary to the demonization of Christianity – that is the assertion that all religions must be equally true, a matter of taste and culture. It is becoming fairly clear that ‘pluralism’ in religious studies generally takes an uncritical view of non-Christian faiths, while subjecting Christianity to radical critique. Jesus can be portrayed as a nice man, but not more. In essence, this means that Christology is often studied with a deistic or even post-modern contextualization. This is especially true of the death and resurrection of Jesus, and his cosmic significance.

What do you mean Earl? I say your dog does need to be baptized!
And that's why it was a banana, and not an apple, that Eve fed to Adam.
