Genetic Fallacy

There has been a lot of talk about the origins of church practices since George Barna and Frank Viola published their book Pagan Christianity.  Many in the house church movement seem to whole heartedly reject common modern church practices simply because of their perceived origin; this concept is known as the genetic fallacy.  In a Genetic fallacy a conclusion is suggested based solely on something or someone’s origin rather than its current meaning or context.[i]
