Instrumental worship for New Testament Christians can be justified (debate #2)

ChristianDebaterBrad
VocMusTcrMaloy

My opposition must agree that the ONLY authority to go by is the 66 books found in the Holy Bible. I have this exact argument going on with someone else but I would like to take on another opponent as well. What I'm proposing: New Testament Christians can worship God accompanied by instrumental use (only stringed instruments) and the bible is not silent on this matter. Evidence of my proposition to be true: Christians in the New Testament were plainly instructed to sing and do it fro...

Obama will not be our next President

Obama will not be our next President. I have three arguments for this stance on this debate. 1.RACE-Unfortunately America is not ready for a African American President. Racism is not far enough in our past yet. I am a Union member. Out of the twenty seven people I work with there are three Republicans, including myself. The "dems" I work with were split, twenty for Clinton, four for Obama. When Clinton lost the nomination twenty of the "Dems" said they would NOT vote for Obama. Race was the m...

Vote-Bombing Contest!

STALIN
kawaii_crazy

You know what, nevermind. I'm doing the challenge. I'm just unsure because so many people hate me. Lets test that hate. Simple. Just accept. Then you have to try and get as many people to vote-bomb for you as you can and I have to do the same. Whoever gets more votes within 10 days wins the debate. Round 1 is for acceptance and round 2 is for any additional questions. I won't respond as quickly in order to give people time to see the debate. I think I will lose though......

The Qur'an openly preaches violence and hatred against non-believers.

InsertNameHere
Mirza

My opponent, Mirza has offered to discuss a controversial subject regarding the Qur'an, that it openly preaches violence and hatred as this has been bothering me for some time now. While I'm aware that much of it is likely misinterpretations it's still an important issue worth addressing. One can't help, but to wonder why there's so much bloodshed done in the name of the "religion of peace". I hope for an interesting and informative debate. Good luck to both of us! I will begin by presenting...
