Annoying Arguments

Today i was reading in one of my textbooks for Seminary when i ran across one of the most frustrating arguments: “The word ‘Trinity’ isn’t in the Bible.”  This is so annoying to me not only b/c it is often merely an evasive tactic, but also betrays that there is absolutely no understanding of how theology and the bible work together.  The worst part is that many learned people, some with PhD’s, acutally think that this rhetoric makes for a good argument.  It is sad to see how sloppy thinking on this subject can be.  It is like they are expecting me to say something like  “Wow, i had no idea.  Well, i guess that ends the discussion.”

Hopefully i’ll post something of substance soon, but for tonight i’d love to hear what arguments annoy you the most.
