Don’t Be Seduced by Word Games

Sophistry.When people manipulate words, even  scripture, with the sole purpose of supporting their own point of view, rather than using words and scripture to discover the truth, they are using sophistry.. Sophistry could also describe the logic used by a lawyer intent upon persuading a jury to find a criminal not guilty. The word sophistry describes the language and logic used by the scribes and pharisees in today’s gospel...more

Do you agree or disagree? I prefer to keep my articles religiously-neutral, but this quote from George Bernard Shaw reminds me so much of some scriptures in the Bible, I can't help myself.

It Needs Be Said:

I don’t typically like preachy op eds or blog posts. I’m not one to take kindly to patronization. I also try to avoid the overly saccharine variety of, well, anything. More about what I don’t like: the Huffington Puffington Post, especially, within the last year. Although, I do still read it on occasion and sometimes they make-up for what I consider to be several major shortcomings for which my personality can’t really take....more
