If I remember correctly, there's a term for when Christians try to make a point or teach the Bible by using various unrelated statements from around the Bible. Does that sound familiar to anyone?

"Hermeneutics" vaguely comes to mind, "the theory and methodology of interpretation"...
Then again, quite a few religious texts, the Bible included, are self-contradictory enough that believers have no choice but to resort to cherry-picking, whether or not that's kosher.
The Bibviz project, a beautifully visualized catalog of biblical contradictions (as well as scientific absurdities and historical inaccuracies, cruelty and violence, misogyny, and anti-gay discrimination), is online again at a new home: https://philb61.github.io/
(Speaking of nonkosher cherry-picking...)
