I expect you mean using apologists’ texts against them in the discussion.
Have you noticed what I have? Almost every time I look up a proof text offered by an apologist to support their case, and I read it in context, I find that it either doesn’t really say what they want it to say or the proof text is embedded in a series of statements that are otherwise ignored by those same apologists.
It keeps happening over and over, and I personally continue to be somewhat surprised at these outcomes. More and more I am convinced that proof-texting, taking one or two sentences out of context, is quite inadequate and even a dangerous way to use scripture.
Here’s some proof texts we can have fun with. Things the bible clearly states:
We should not marry:
Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do.
You can save your spouse through your belief:
For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband.
Your belief, if you stay in an “unequally yolked” marriage, makes your children holy!:
Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.
We can actually talk to the dead through mediums, and even while dead they know what is happening on the earth and can tell us the future:
The Medium said, “I see a ghostly figure coming up out of the earth." “What does he look like?” Saul asked. “An old man wearing a robe is coming up,” she said. Then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground. Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?”
Samuel said, “Why do you consult me, now that the Lord has departed from you and become your enemy? … The Lord has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to one of your neighbors—to David. … The Lord will deliver both Israel and you into the hands of the Philistines, and tomorrow you and your sons will be with me [dead in the underworld]. The Lord will also give the army of Israel into the hands of the Philistines.”
It’s appropriate and edifying to kill the babies of your enemies:
“Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.”
I could go on and on.
