Eisegesis

Like this post (1): Aetixintro
Hi all,

Can we do two things:

1) please spell it correctly eisegesis and not esegesis.

(Mind you I can never spell Isaiah correctly.)

2_ But let's not call other peoples posts examples of eisegesis.

Let's debate the topic. It is, in my opinion, a cop-out to label each others posts as eisegesis.

Mostly we short change ourselves by denying ourselves the chance to think for ourselves when we label something eisegesis because it allows us to ignore the argument and what the text is saying.

Wootah

The flim flam of exegesis is that for anyone to get the meaning of a verse from the verse without any input from their mindset and unfiltered by existing commitments to ideas is on the order of Paul's conversion as a bright light and hearing GOD's voice. Every interpretation of a verse is eisegesis, the fitting of the verse into previously accepted definitions.
