Actually, anyone can prove almost ANY theological point by quoting
<em>sections</em> of the bible, just like anyone can prove almost any URI
point by quoting <em>sections</em> of the RFCs.  The competent [Christian]
theologist, however, knows the bible cover to cover, and how those distinct
sections fit in with the whole, just like the competent URI... um...
"discusser" knows all of the RFCs, and how each section fit in with the
whole.  <aside>Which is why I've steered clear of the discussion.  Whoops, I
just got involved...</aside>

<apology>Sorry, I wasn't able to relate this to tea leaves.  Or to other
religions, for that matter.  <?wink?>  </apology>
