Theoretical and applied empiricism are scientific orthodoxy.
Experimentation and mensuration are scientific orthopraxy.
When we begin to be sceptical about scientific orthodoxy (empiricism, experimentation and mensuration) as faulty, wrong and false; and resort to approaches already proved to be unscientific: then we are reintroducing the old unreliable unorthodoxy which is prone to be faulty, wrong and false.
Unempirical Revisionism would be retrograde absurdity in Science.
Same applies to Christianity.
The Scripture is the standard measure for Apostolic Gospel orthodoxy, orthopraxy and orthopathos.
For Gospel Christianity, what is valid about God, Truth, Spirituality and Eternity can best be known from scriptural revelation because Jesus and the Apostles founded the Christian Faith on the grounds that the Scripture is the orthodox standard.
When we begin to be sceptical about Scriptural orthodoxy, we are reintroducing an old unorthodoxy already proved to be faulty, wrong and false as far as the Christian Faith is concerned.
Unscriptural Revisionism is a retrograde absurdity in Gospel Christianity.
The Devil was the most cunning of all creatures by which he originated progressive revisionist theology in Eden!
That Revisionism and Progressivism led humanity to depravity as we see today!
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are following a different gospel –
7 not that there really is another gospel, but there are some who are disturbing you and wanting to distort the gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we (or an angel from heaven) should preach a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be condemned to hell!
9 As we have said before, and now I say again, if any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let him be condemned to hell!
