OK, so my two favorite bloggers, Kevin DeYoung and Justin Taylor, are doing my blogging work today.  In this post, DeYoung does us a favor by pointing out rhetorical tricks used in bad arguments.  I know that there are many times when I am in a discussion with someone and I am troubled by something about their argument…but, I just can’t discern ‘what’ I is troubling about the argument.  I have used the ‘Affirm & Deny’ tactic too often in attempts to seem open and approachable.
