God as a Biblical Figure is Evil

Castaway
JohnDoe360

God, as a figure in the Bible, is clearly an evil figure by any reasonable form of morality. This is a figure that genocides entire people, a figure that created man knowing they would sin and setting it up so they would fail, supports slavery and supports the killing of people for minor offenses that aren't even wrong like gay sex. This is a figure who is clearly evil. To begin, he is a mass murderer. Many a time, God has wiped out entire people. The whole world during the time of Noah, the...

Debate: Churches ought to pay taxes

Hayd
thett3

Full resolution: Churches ought to pay taxesThe debate is impossible to accept, apply in the comments if you are interested and I will send the challenge to the applicant of my choosing. First round is acceptance only. No new arguments in the final round. Kritiks aren't allowed. Taxes on churches would mean regular property taxes and commercial income taxes. Basically they lose their tax exempt status....

In the Bible, God is the one who is evil and Satan is good.

Note: I am going to make this debate voted on by judges. To make it fair, my opponent should name up to 5 people to be judges in the comments(I'll then nominate these people), and I'll choose up to 5 as well(please note that if I can't find 5 people I want to judge, then I'll just choose the number of people I do find and nominate the equal amount for you of the ones you name, so it can be less than 5 each). If you accept this debate before asking for judges, then you forfeit your ability to cho...

Is the Bible against women's rights?

foxxhajti
FollowerofChrist1955

The Bible has multiple quotes against the rights of women. In my opinion, it is a pretty outdated book reflecting the ideologies and philosophies of society during that era. Some quotes from the Bible which reflect this: 1) "You shall not covet your neighbor"s house. You shall not covet your neighbor"s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." Exodus 20:17 - Neither men nor women should be considered anyone's properties by any mean...

I don't need to prove your religion is false you need to prove it is true.

I have no reason to believe that your god is real. There are so many different gods, and its not possible for all of them to be real but it is possible for none of them to be. faith is not a reason it is the suspension of reason so belief can be preserved. I'm asking for clear evidence for the existence of god because if you want others to believe your radical claims you require radical evidence. Bertrand Russell's teapot analogy illustrates this argument very well and it goes as follows "If...

Minecraft makes children sex slaves and destroys our economy

DrClutchMcSwagDaddy
Name1

Minecraft is not really a video game. It is amazingly much worse than that. It is as if Satan, Second Lifeand The Sims all had a huge sex orgy and Minecraft was the bastard child that came out of it. They even have a specific variant called "Lava Survival" in which children falsely learn it is possible to escape from Hell! The horror that is Minecraft: Defying God by promoting genetic manipulation! First of all Minecraft shows us what the world will look like once the evolutionists finall...

The Christian god exists and rules over the universe

UnhookedSchnook
WFTL

My opponent must be a Christian that believes in every word of the bible. They must construct one strong evidence-based argument that objectively proves the existence of god. If my opponent or I disagree with one another (which we most likely will) we must post a refute/defence. I will not post any points as to why being an atheist is best as we do not have the burden of proof. If my opponent agrees with me I win, if I agree with them they win, if we disagree the voters are suggested to look for...
