"Is it possible that in between 1641, when Milton published ORE, and
1667, when he published PL, that is to say, over the course of 26 years,
Milton may have reconsidered the matter?" 

People change in all sorts of ways. But a change in attitude toward a
theologian found abundantly wanting, and even risible, is not to be
taken for granted. The evidence for this particular change, I fear, is
not to be had without what Milton calls "wresting of Scripture."
