Is Obedience of the Law, Legalism?

reddogs
Sonofcharl

If we love Jesus Christ and keep his commandments which come from his eternal moral law, are we legalist because we love him and want to follow what he wants for us. If I am free to do whatever I want, is it wrong for me to keep Gods Law or legalistic if I want to follow what Jesus taught by keeping his commandments, not because I am forced to do it by people, society or church, but because I love him and want to. Many people bring up the objection that after the law has accomplished its...

Flat Earth

Capitalistslave
Edlvsjd

I will be challenging, perhaps, one of the better known proponents of the flat earth theory from DDO: Edlvsjd. NOTE TO EDLVSJD: rule one is changed to a different rule, since I am, instead, using a google doc for argument 1. As you wanted(I think) I am posting my first arguments in round 1. Rules of debate 1) Google Docs are not a violation of conduct, but character limit is still 10,000, so that voters don't have a book to read. 2) The last two rounds should be used for rebuttals against...

For the purposes of the debate, we will use the followi...

God does not exist as anything but myth

Boris7698
kwagga_la

God does not exist as anything but myth. As myth, the God concept servers for literary purposes, as a fictional character in a fable. But metaphysically, in reality, God does not exist. He does not exist for several reasons, all of which boil down to the fact that God is a contradictory concept, and therefore is an invalid concept. Please note that by reality I mean everything that exists, the whole universe. This includes material things, and immaterial things such as consciousness, and...
