Jahweh's commandment to kill the Amalekite children was justified.

Fiver

As described in the opening verses of 1st Samuel 15. The commandment in verse 3 to utterly destroy the Amalekites (including the children) is immoral, and the principles that establish this are simple and uncontroversial, namely: 1. Children are innocent of crimes deserving the death penalty. 2. One should not kill innocent children. Therefore, the command to kill the Amalekite children was unjustified....

ISIS is an accurate representation of Islam

Islam, like any religion, has a variety of interpretations. The Quran speaks constantly of fighting in the name of Allah, making extreme sacrifices, and using violence to spread ideas. According to the Quran, followers must have an unrelenting loyalty to their religion, even if it costs lives. That is the strictest interpretation of Islam. The strictest interpretation of any religion is going to result poorly. In the strictest interpretation of Christianity, for example, even the mildest sins...

A maximal being can be proved using the ontological argument

Hamza_mazin
Sonofcharl

The version of the ontological argument I would like to adress in this debate uses the proof by contradiction and it goes as follows:1- Let's assume that the maximal being -regarding every property that can have a maximum- lacks the property of existence. 2- Then we can conceive a more maximal being that is exactly like the first but has the property of existence.3- Therfore the maximal being connot lack the property of existence.4- The maximal being exist...

Atheists:world from nothing or creator?

TheMarketLibertarian

God is creator of the universe.For a thing to cone into existence there needs to be a cause,nothing comes from nothing.To have a bang you need a "banger" God pulled the trigger and the universe came forth. Before you ask me "who caused God" ask yourself why am i asking this,God is ,he is eternal. Things in our universe are winding down,they must of been wound up. Anything made needs a maker,God is neccessary "In the BEGINNING God",he was there he lives forever he holds all things together....

moral law

Let me say,the moral law does exist.We know what we will do,what we wont do.There is another element,what we ought to do.What we ought to do for me is the key to morality.we all adhere to our own moral standards,but we all know deep down what a person should do.Is it right to save one man at the expense of many men,or too save many men at the expense of one?If a person breaks the "ought to" moral code of conduct he will notice a kind of death in him,the man for a time will taste an in er death.....

Has christianity deviated from truth

jonnyboy39
Cha240

I think christianity has gone astray.We water down the gospel,the church seeks to entertain people,for the most part its about sitting in a pew listening to a pastor giving a sermon,then chucking "20 in the offering hat. The church is more worried about outward appearance than inner/heart change. The average church member even thinks it ok to go home after a church service and watch porn. we call the few preachers who faithfully deliver a sermon,we call them fanatics or even heretics.whats wr...

Proof of any God

Maldonado

Can any religious person scientifically prove the existence of their god? Please provide sources. Through research I believe mostly all religions were developed as a measure of control on a population. I also believe that as a species we would be better off without religion. We have learnt valuable lessons through religion, but I think the best way forward for the human race is to now have a more scientific viewpoint on all aspects of life. As a side note - Can any Christian provide defin...

Muslims claim that the God of the Bible is also the God of Islam

kwagga_la
drappi

I often hear Muslims claim that the God of the Bible is also the God of Islam. This is clearly contradicting scriptures like John 3:16 that states God has a Son whereas Muslims claim that Allah does not beget. When pointing out these differences a Muslim will claim that the Bible was changed. I do not believe the Bible was changed and would like to debate a Muslim who can give evidence that the Bible was indeed changed regarding specific scriptures that clearly show that Allah is not the same Go...
