Heresy

At what point do you cease to be a christian?

If you don’t believe that Adam and Eve actually existed and were literally the start of humanity, and that Eve spoke with a talking snake, are you still a christian?

If you don’t believe that Noah’s ark actually existed and there was a worldwide flood that killed the entire human and animal population of the earth apart from those in the ark, are you still a christian?

If you don’t believe that Methuselah lived to be nine hundred and whatever years old, are you still a christian?

If you don’t believe that Moses actually parted the Red Sea so that an army of people could walk across the sea bed, are you still a christian?

If you don’t believe Mary was a virgin who became pregnant without having sex with a human male, are you still a christian?

If you don’t believe that Jesus physically came back to life after three days of being dead, are you still a christian?

Do any of the above questions count more than others? Why?

At what point do you stop being a christian and become just a person with some leanings towards christian teachings? Or to give it an old word, at what point do you become a heretic?

Strange question perhaps, and for the record I don’t believe any of the above things, but interesting.
