Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In this light, Christian teaching is progressive (or even socialistic).

Which is why I think Christianity -- despite all the savage devastation and malicious suffering its proponents, standardbearers and institutions have wrought on the world -- nevertheless remains one of the foundations of what is best in Western society:  recognition of, compassion for, and respect for the intrinsic "value" of each individual, and the common humanity of all people transcending, even outdating, national, tribal, class, ethnic identity, etc.

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
