As I have written before, argumentation requires warrants (reasons, evidence) for the claims made. If people want to disagree, the framework is before them. They normally begin with the sources.
This also applies in law enforcement. A police officer does not have the right to search someone or a house or car without a warrant or the agreement of the person involved. His warrant is the reason sworn before a judge, but not all reasons are accepted. It must credible and appropriate for the matter.
False doctrine, like Objective Justification, assumes there is no other doctrine. They shriek and clutch their pearls, but have nothing to offer. It is true because their professors told them so, not because there is a speck of evidence for the dogma.
They refuse to quote the opposition fairly and address what they think are errors.
- Is Genesis 15:6 about Justification by Faith or not?
- Does Romans 4 - 5:2 teach Justification by Faith- or as the Brief Statement claims - Objective Justification?
- If that is so, does the Holy Spirit contradict Himself, misleading Paul?
