‘With Christ as part of the equation, the Christian ethics of the Gospels became balanced. Humans were seen as imperfect and it was Christ who covered for us with his self-sacrifice.
In Secular Christianity each person has to be like Jesus himself [emphasis added], doing self-sacrifice, since there’s no other way to fulfill Christian ethics’. —Conservative Swede

Your ‘red-giant’ analogy is apt. The supernatural Jesus and Saint Paul – although leftists and communists for their time were, nevertheless, constrained by the conservative values of their time. Hence this constraint; a constraint not properly their own but of their Roman environment, restrains and conservatises Orthodox Christianity.
Remove the supernatural 1st-century Mishnaic Rabbis, Jesus and Saul… and there is nothing, anymore, restraining this subversive rabbinical, essene, desert-communist creed. ‘soul equality’ becomes ‘equality.’ ‘complementarianism,’ the false evangelical belief that women are “separate but equal” becomes: ‘feminism.’ ‘image and likeness of God’ becomes ‘one race and its human.’
Hence mainstream atheism, what I term “noahide atheism,” is really just ‘red-giant Christianity;’ a christianity bereft of its supernatural core; hyper-christianity; the reductio ad absurdum, or Christianty’s last logical conclusion.
