No, that's the official conclusion of the Christian church.


That's an appeal to authority fallacy.
Paul misrepresents the law by no mentioning the blessings of Deuteronomy 28.
Habakuk 2 is about Paul, the proud man who gathers all nations (self declared apostle to the Gentiles)

I lost track because there are 27 comments I can't read..........I don't have the patience or saintly nature to open up all of those 'things' so I'll just rest awhile.

@Theo202,
No it's not.

An appeal to authority would be if I said that because they said it, it must be true. An extreme appeal to authority is the appeal to experts, name-dropping theologians like Paul Tillich.

An idea you happen to agree with already that you then find in a book used by your church just reinforces the notion that your beliefs are orthodox. But if you came to that conclusion yourself, you're not using their authority, you're just agreeing with their opinion here.

My actual beliefs concerning this came from doing therapy, and reading two books in particular. The Gifts of Imperfection (Brene Brown) and When Panic Attacks (David Burns), I had found under different circumstances. The second was part of the therapy book that I was asked to read (I didn't until later), and the first something I found at Amazon. Both of these were about letting go of the perfect and being your best self, not the best. But more importantly, I was learning this firsthand working for Amazon.

The "it must be true" part is implied by the context since bringing it up supports your position.

@bulmabriefs144,
If someone takes a position in an argument and then makes a claim that supports that position, then it's reasonable to think that the claim is part of the argument, and so it can be treated as if the claim was explicitly part of the argument.

This is derived from the error of humanism, the idea that perfection is unattainable. It's related to atheism since the divine can be regarded to be free of error or flaw.

@glitterbag,
Anointed is asking Theo personal questions about his penis.

Now is the time to put them both on ignore, before I fetch my breakfast up.

After posting; "Now is the time to put them both on ignore," It pats itself on the back, by saying, of it own statement; 'WISE MOVE'

The poor thing talks to itself. WELL, no wonder, because no one else was going to say than anything put forward by it, would have been a 'WISE MOVE.'

Crawl back into you little dungeon of darkness mate, with all the other vile mouth animals.

And I would bet that you're a cheese eater Izzy.
