More CULT TACTICS!
Pay close attention to how they combine verses to make their point. To prove their point the _______ has to take you from one verse to another and try to get you to agree with their conclusions. The danger is adding 2 plus 2 and coming up with 3. There is a verse in the Bible that says,Judas went and hanged himself. There is another verse, somewhere else, that says,Go, and do likewise. So we are all supposed to commit suicide, right? Beware of mixing two verses together to come to your conclusions when there are already clear verses about the subject. We will refer to this tactic as Convolution. To convolute means to twist. A pretzel is convoluted. Likewise, scriptural Convolution, is twisting a verse or two into a pretzel.
This tactic is self-explanatory. They simply omit verses that contradict their position.
This tactic is occasionally used when we see an example of the Holy Spirits activity in the church that contradicts the _________ position. They say that it is an exception rather than the rule. In other words, that verse or incident doesnt count. Keep in mind, the _________ claims to Speak where the Bible speaks and we are silent where the Bible is silent.
Eisegesis is the opposite of Exegesis. To exegete a text is to draw the true meaning out. To eisegete a text is to read your personal interpretation or preconceive ideas into the verse.
This is not so much an error as it is a tactic. Note the exaggerated use of the exclamation point! This is a tactic used to make the reader feel stupid like the subjects in the Emperors New Clothes. There it is! Dont you get it? It is so clear! Anyone can see that this is correct!
This I a good list. I would avoid information from the CoC in general, but the above is good.
