Was Jesus a Creationist?

I always like directing my readers to the great posts of blogs I enjoy. The title you see above is the title of a new post by blogger Jonny Scaramanga of Leaving Fundamentalism, I have mentioned his blog before sometime back, he's a musician, teacher, and blogger who normally devotes his blog posts to exposing Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E), a fundamentalist school curriculum that both he and yours truly were raised up on.

In this post, Was Jesus a Creationist?, he takes a different turn and takes a look at the view of Genesis by Christianity throughout it's history, and what he shows his readers will surprise you, Genesis was largely read in a figurative light for much of Christianity's past, even by honored church fathers like Augustine. Creationism, the literal interpretation of Genesis, was not actually the norm until about 100 years ago, when a Christian college sought to resurrect the view of a literal Genesis as the norm for Christianity. Their actions lead to the foundations for modern fundamentalist Christianity.

It's a great read, check it out!
