God is not responsible for the evil in the world.

Twigbean
ZachZimmey

Humanity has free will, therefore anything we do that is considered evil is entirely our fault. If i take the life of another human i chose to do that out of my own free will. No one or thing told me or guided me to committing that act, it was my intention, and the blame can not be placed onto God....

This House rejects the existence of a higher power (God)

TheOriginalBob
Odotellessa

I will firstly start off with my definition of God. For simplicity I will include the definition of the Christian God. According to the Bible, God is 1-Omnipotent, 2- Omniscient, 3-Supernatural and 4-Omnibenevolent. I will firstly start off with why the first 2 statements of Omnipotence and Omniscience aren't logically correct then I will hand over to side Opposition to put forth their argument. Firstly, Omnipotence is not logically correct as it brings about it's own problems. Firstly, th...

The Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ Historically Occurred

Lupricona

First Round is acceptance, treating first round as anything but acceptance is a forfeit. Read all instructions for pre-acceptance requirements. Last opponent did not and garnered an automatic forfeit. I've made this debate impossible to accept to begin with, but this is a reiteration.This debate is over whether Jesus, a Judean individual in the first century, rose from the de...

Hell, Who will go there, and Why?

FollowerofChrist1955
CosmoJarvis

Hell - believed by the masses to be a place created by active imaginations to scare children, is reputed to be a place of torment and suffering. It exists in the bowels of the earth and is an abode for the unsaved to suffer after death while they await the final judgement upon the earth in the what is believed not to distant future. It has only one requirement for admission, but once you check in you can never check out. Merriam-Webster Definition of hell "a nether world in which the dead co...

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 In my opinion, it is a pretty outdated book reflecting the ideologies and philosophies of society during that era.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...

You can't love Jesus and be in a same sex marriage

NoahIsRight
JohnnyMaboy

Many gays, lesbians, bis, etc show pride in their sexual orientation, but still claim to be christians, catholics, etc. This contradicts itself because god opposes the prideful (james 4:6) as well as the gays (1 corinthians 6:9-11). And to atheists, homosexuality is also the cause of all stds. Back in the day, they had a thing called 'G.R.I.D.', look it up. Fight me m8...

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....

Should Christians support homosexuals?

Gdougie
SilviaJones

This debate will be 4 rounds. Round 1: Opening StatementRound 2: ArgumentsRound 3: RebuttalsRound 4: Rebuttals/ConclusionIf possible, someone with the Christian faith should accept this debate. Opening statements should be very brief, and should establish the basic points of your argument. Any source can be used. Biblical references will be the best considering this is a religious debate.________________________________...
