‘….error is truth disconnected from the larger web of truth.

Strangely enough, I think error is often a result of an effort to be logically consistent. For instance, Calvinists who try to be logically consistent with their doctrine of predestination often end up in hyper-Calvinism or some type of fatalism or determinism. This is the kind of thing that gives rise to that (in)famous exchange between William Carey and his church leaders, when they told him “young man, when God is pleased to convert the heathen he will do so without your help.”

As ususal he is dead right!
