is Islam is a good religion?

DeepInThought
GoOrDin

Many people that I have talked to during the recent Israeli-Gaza incident and the anniversary of 9/11 have talked about how they see the Muslim religion as an evil religion that should be completely eradicated. Non of the people who said this actually had any good arguments to their claims but It made me think, what about those who actually know something about the subject, and who actually did some research before they made up their mind that the Muslim ways of practicing their religion is in f...

Jerusalem is the Jewish Holy Capital

Emilirose
CPUSA99

Its importance to Christianity should be noted, too. Since the re-establishment of Israel one claim from the Islamic (namely Palestinian) community is that Jerusalem is in fact their Holy City, and that it's the place Muhammad descended to heaven from. Such claims are baseless for the following reasons that I will outline in my opening argument. Con must be able to argue my statement(s) and provide supported examples of Jerusalem being an Islamic Holy Capital. First round acceptance....

Papacy Is Un-Biblical

radz

I granted my opponent his request of a debate challenge regarding the Papacy. Here's where I and my opponent concur: 1) The Keys are about "authority." 2) Simon is the "Rock" of Mt. 16:18. Here's where it overlaps: 1) I do not agree with my opponent that Simon as the Rock denotes that he has Papal Power identical to what Papal Rome teaches today. 2) I do not agree that Simon's Peter-ship has successors.The following are my supporting arguments on my stance: Simon as Peter...

In the end, Jesus Christ will save all of mankind and unite them with Himself in Heaven.

From the Old Testament, through the Gospels, through Paul"s and the other Apostle"s Epistles, the concept of Universal Restoration is evident. Simply put, the Bible seems to speak of Jesus" atoning sacrifice as pertaining to the whole world, to all men, to everyone. Verse after verse language like "everyone," "all," "whole" are used. In Lamentations 3:31 it says no one is cast off forever, that His love is unfailing (completely refuting the doctrine of eternal punishment might I add). Yes, i...

Has Religion made humanity better?

The-Lone-Hunt
2Sukh2

Based on my opinion, religion has not made humanity a better race, in fact, I would argue the contrary. Since the dawn of time, countless wars have been fought in the name of faith, God, or gods. Innocents have been tortured andmurdered by more powerful opponents-in the name of "divine justice." Education grew benighted as men of science were suppressed, for their factual evidence defied the hypothesis of God and challenged the all mighty Catholic Churc...

Jesus is God by nature

radz

This debate challenge is strictly not for Atheists/ Agnostics but only for those who are Christians by calling especially the Unitarians. This calls for the use of the Bible per se as the source of both arguments and rebuttals. This is my debate challenge: JESUS IS GOD BY NATURE. Jesus Christ is God by nature because of one singular reason and that's His being the Son of God.
