    Sheesh… Is it me or is the worldview of the person(s) writing the “examples” pretty easy to deduce…

    It’s amazing how often intelligent people make these mistakes. As you’re discussing things with people, remember some of these tips. Believe it or not, Jesus was a master of this. He argued with the Saducees about the resurrection from the part of the old testament that they believed in (the Torah), not the part He believed in (the whole thing). That’s actually a proper appeal to authority. If both sides agree on the authority, it’s okay. Notice he didn’t argue with the Pharisees on the point of the law that they brought of concerning the woman caught in adultery, but said that the one without sin should throw the first stone, which allowed Him to win the argument.

    We in the church appeal to the Bible when talking to Atheists all the time (which they don’t believe in). We also try and make points based on strawmen arguments (not respecting the person) or a slippery slope (for example, “if you allow gay marriage, is beastiality next?”). Love the person enough to respect them by not making other issues the issue. Jesus does.
