group reenforcement

To the contrary, nothing roots out heresy better than a group.
Tony Jones, The New Christians, p. 185

I can think of all kinds of 'groups' (Mormons, JWs, Christian Science, Oneness Pentacostals, and dare I add emergents into this list) that are heretical despite being a group.

All a group really does is allow the members to affirm each other in their beliefs, it says nothing about whether those beliefs are good or bad, true or false.
