Phil, I’m sure you are seeing the pattern. I noticed how much you source linked so ANYONE can check out the issue. However, guys like Mr. Begnaud & people from the hyperpret camp have the same pattern of NOT sourcing. They intentionally only supply their audience snippets & do not allow them to read the full context. It is uncanny how this same practice is employed by these people.
Letting people see the whole story is very important don’t you think? It seemed to be very important to this commenter. He’s always telling people how he’s “known for his sourcing” and always chastising people who don’t. I like what he has to say about this subject.
So what happened here? He’s gone as far as to post this here here and here as well. What I had to do with the blog post at American Vision is anyone’s guess but looks to be the same vendetta driven madness we’ve all come to know….. and…… well……
Where’s the source link to the original you ask? There isn’t one is there? Why isn’t there a link to the original? You can find that here if you are so inclined and if you do decide to listen you will see the entire premise of the posting made several places on the Internet is bunk.
What can we deduce from this lack of citing and sourcing based on the indented comment?
1). There is a pattern to this type of behavior.
2). Hyperpreterist’s follow this pattern.
3). This pattern of behavior is intentional.
4). People like Hyperpreterist’s only supply their audience snippets.
5). People like Hyperpreterist’s do not allow their readers to see the full context.
6). The commenter fits HIS description of a Hyperpreterist’s behavior.
For a man who continually talks about the character of others he certainly has a ways to go concerning his own don’t you think? Something about “motes” and “beams” comes to mind here.
Is he a hyperpreterist or is he more like the “other” guys that have a pattern of intentionally deceiving their readers by refusing to cite and source the original work they are critiquing or responding to? Either way he’s dishonest and needs to repent of this type of behavior or stop calling himself a Christian.
