This debate wasn't finished on the regular debating section so I'll start it here.
Liberalism are a Threat to Christianity
The way that they interpret the Bible is that it is not that it is inerrant. You are supposed to have God renewing your mind to things that don't make sense to the rest of the world, because they are divine. Christians on the Left interpret science and verbatim while the Bible is not. Also know as Progressive Christians, they can sometimes deny that anything that happened in the Bible was real, the historical accuracy of the Bible, fundamental ideas of the Bible, not relying on the Bible for inspiration, taking worldly secular ideas and adopting them.  This contradicts 2 Timothy 3:16 where Scripture is divinely inspired. The Bible also says in 1 Corinthians 4:6 to not go beyond the Scriptures. Romans 12:2 says to not be conformed by this world, but be transformed by the renewing of you mind. If you are not going to live by those verses, don't bother being a Christian at all. Liberals are following themselves and the way of the world and not God.
Let's examine the various controversial issues concerning the Christian Right and the mainstream American lifestyle.
The Theory of Evolution and the Big Bang:
The Theory of Evolution and the Big Bang are not found in the Bible and contradict themes in Scripture. So, it's metaphorical so some farmers from biblical times will be able to understand it? You could still say what Evolution and The Big Bang is without going into great detail. It's possible to explain the theory to some young kids, just like you would some Hebrew herdsman. The Bible mentions that the heavens and the Earth were created at the same time in the beginning with nothing in between the Hebrew word in the one word "in" and "beginning." God made them male and female from the beginning. There's no mention of just humanity. If it was, it would be so obvious that it wouldn't need mentioning! Through one man, Adam was when sin entered the world (Romans 5:12.) There was a lot of death and disease in those alleged fossils which came before Adam...... and affected everyone before him. God would not retroactively punish us. Also, in the future when the new heaven and earth come in, it says it in the Bible that the creation of God will be back to its former glory. How can it be glorious if there is death, disease, and sin? Why would we need a savior if there wasn't anything good that can before sin entered the world? Creation was called "perfect," but there is sin and death? Adam must have gone through a heckuva mutation because he was alone with his ape-man friends and family! Adam was formed from the dust.... but really he was even birth to by his ape-man parents......The order of Creation of things is different than in the Theory of Evolution. The Theory of Evolution makes death our friend instead of our enemy. God made the universe out of nothing, not preexisting material. The universe was completed on the sixth day. Why would God go through all of the trouble to create something over billions of years when He could have created it completely? Were the days literal? Yes! As said in the Holy Scriptures, there was an evening and morning along with numbers. There are many other Hebrew words for long periods of time and Moses didn't use them.
Women Being Ministers Over Men:
Women should not become Pastors men according to Paul according to 1 Timothy 2:12. Men are supposed to be the spiritual leaders of the household.  Women are meant to be helpers to compliment the man.  Men and women are different. 
The Bible establishes that an unborn baby is a person with the same rights. See the verses of Psalms 51:5, Pslams 139: 14-15, and Jeremiah 1:5. Exodus 21: 22-23 carry that harming an unborn child carries the penalty of death. 
All these alternative lifestyles are a sin because of many reasons. One women were meant to compliment men in marriage (a society stabilizer)  and can't be replaced by an effeminate man (I added that last part based on inference.) God also did not create humankind that way. There are many lifestyles such as drug abuse , pedophilia , and promiscuity  that come with those lifestyles.
The problem with Interpretation:
God doesn't want you to take changing science based on man over the Bible.You don't read someone's literature looking for your own interpretation while
Liberal churches are falling away while denominations that are Conservatives are growing. The mainline Protestant churches like the United Methodist Church, Episcopal Church, Lutheran, Presbyterian, and the social justice gospel Catholic Church have been losing members since the 1960's. Conservative sects of those denominations are growing.  
Europe is much farther in developing Liberal Christianity. Many now don't believe at all.
Are these things something that was just a thing of the past? No. God, Scripture, and His commandments never change according to Hebrews 13:8 and Matthew 24: 35. Reducing things by saying that they are metaphorical or not historical undermines Christianity. Liberalism itself has an anti-Christian agenda. When we, as Christians, fall away from Conservative Christianity, we leave what God's plan for humanity. Then people who are really born again or Evangelicals don't fill the pews of those churches and move elsewhere. Progressive Christianity is compromising the values of Fundamentalist Christianity, which is Conservative. Liberals want you to come over to their level and take you away from the faith.
