English term or phrase:a straightforward view
3.2. The whole Bible stands or falls with the historicity of Genesis
It is crucially important to have ***a straightforward view*** of Genesis. The secular world recognizes this more than the church. Thomas Huxley (1825–1895), the ardent defender of Darwin’s ideas and the one who (more than Darwin himself) propagated evolutionary thinking, wrote: "I am fairly at a loss to comprehend how anyone for a moment can doubt that Christian theology must stand or fall with the historical trustworthiness of the Jewish Scriptures. The very conception of the Messiah, or Christ, is inextricably interwoven with Jewish history; the identification of Jesus of Nazareth with hat Messiah rests upon the interpretation of the passages of the Hebrew Scriptures which have no evidential value unless they possess the historical character assigned to them."
