comment A word for the fallacy of assuming whatever brings God the most glory is the correct interpretation a text?
I think I understand what you are saying Joseph, but I am confused about a few things. First, I have always heard the reformed preachers that I listen to, (Piper, my pastor, etc.) refer to God's glory as being the primary purpose of any of his actions. God's salvation of mankind is secondary to his purpose of self-glorification. Yet it seems that you are saying the opposite? Is it because a dispensationalist would consider that premise axiomatic or foundational? Or am I just confused about the way the preachers I am hearing are articulating God's purpose of self-glorification?

We always have the option of just making one up. I guess. I have done some simple searches of theological dictionaries, and google, but I can't find anything about it.

Interesting you should say that, because it is in the context of a discussion about Calvinism that this came up. I agree that Calvinism can fall into this fallacy, yet I am searching for the specific word.
