Quoting for influence

As some may be aware and is shown here the Amarr have a weapon of mass instruction. As with any and all weapons, they are sometimes employed to make might right. That does not mean either might or this weapon are always rightfull and in the right hands.

While having such a weapon is indeed quite the feat, it’s appliance quite awe inspiering and it’s applicant very likely to gain immense influence, one needs to be aware that only by abiding to a strict moralic codex the holder of such a tool of war may ensure that the purity of it’s nature is conserved, lest it not fall in the hand of a tainting influence.

It is therefore essential to refrain from diluting the radiance of such an item, by fractioning it, and selectively combine it with subjective interpretations.

While it is legit to provide a commentary appendant to a text, to enable a deeper understanding of interrelations, historical classification, argumentative susbtance or appliance in a present situation, cutting a few sentences from a lengthier text and using them to bolster significance of a different one, is like attaching achuran songbird feathers to a fedo.

As is obvious the above linked speaker exactly employs latter.

Now that though a grave sin it can be forgiven through various methods, depending on the circumstances of such a presentation, social echelon of the presenter and relevance of the quoted work.

In so far one might conclude that it does not necessarily lead to eternal damnation. With this I hope a contribution to the quality of the presentation of scriptural quotations is provided.
