I need help understanding a discussion of the accident fallacy from the following site: http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/2-accident-fallacy
It describes the following as an example of the accident fallacy:
The Bible says,“thou shall not bear false witness”. So saving one hiding in my home from a killer is a sin.
The explanation from the site is this:
To assume any law, even divine, applies to every person, in every time, in every situation, even though not explicitly stated, is an assumption not grounded in evidence, and fallacious reasoning.
But this is not so clear to me. Is it saying that assuming anything from a law is automatically an accident fallacy?
The same site also provides this argument:
The Bible says, “thou shall not murder”, therefore, as a Christian, you better put that chainsaw down and untie that little kid.
This is described as NOT being an example accident fallacy with the following explanation:
Stating the general rule when a good argument can be made that the action in question is a violation of the rule, would not be considered fallacious.
This makes me wonder when the diagnosis of accident fallacy can be applied in the context of religious verses and when it cannot be. What is the general connection between this fallacy and religious verses?
