So, essentially, your argument is: Jesus was in the religious minority in his lifetime; therefore, Jesus would be in every minority opinion, including scientific opinions, in our lifetime.

Now keep that logic in mind. I would appreciate if you could imagine yourself going back in time to 1820. You gather together a group of people that form "the consensus." You tell them about evolution. What is their reaction? They of course will think you're out of your mind. "Of course we didn't evolve from a species resembling the Ape! How dare you!" You respond with the same logic you use today: "Jesus always went with the consensus, he completely agreed with the Pharisees, Sadducees and other hypocrites. /herp dee derps!" In other words, you imply that Jesus, who was in the religious minority in his lifetime, would be in every minority opinion, including scientific opinions, in the present lifetime. Or . . . Jesus would reject the consensus of 1820, and presumably agree with your minority opinion [affirming] evolution.

I hope you can see why that logic is completely unworkable. And I hope you can respond in a manner that doesn't suggest you fear that your faith is too immature to deal with rationality and reasonableness.
