overall, popes have had an economic liberal bias

pope quotes Quote "Private property does not constitute for anyone an absolute or unconditioned right. No one is justified in keeping for his exclusive use what he does not need, when others lack necessities" You are not making a gift of your possessions to the poor person. You are handing over to him what is his. For what has been given in common for the use of all, you have arrogated to yourself. The world is given to all, and not only to the rich." (#23) QUOTE Now if the e...

If a God is Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnibenevolent, then Free Will Does Not Exist

BrandonMS
PhilosophicalPensiveness

(I am restarting this because I was hit by a troll last time. They were blocked. This will happen to any and every troll.) This is a rather simple concept: If there is an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent deity, can absolute free will exist? I say no, and am therefore Pro. I have seen this definition of a god be used to define specifically the Abrahamic god several times and will thus be focusing largely on that in my opening statement, but it may describe any god the opponent wish...

This is a rather simple concept: If there is an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent deity, can absolute free will exist? I say no, and am therefore Pro. I have seen this definition of a god be used to define specifically the Abrahamic god several times and will thus be focusing largely on that in my opening statement, but it may describe any god the opponent wishes. Biblical, religious, and philosophical verses and references are allowed to be used as points. Because of the subject of...

Religion(s) as they stand are bogus!

Missfit
Aerogant

I have reached to a conclusion, that most religions out there are misleading and therefore wrong. We are reading books like Bible and make ourselves believe its god's words. We believe into prophets and such and Christians have gone so far to believe that Jesus Christ is a God. What he clearly isn't. Everything written in holy books are written by man. Most of the context is meant to keep people in check (and stupid). In fact if we (humans) wouldn't have written these books and follow their d...

Being in a relationship with a non-Christian is not a sin

Truth_seeker
Aerogant

Non-Christians are welcome to debate, but they must only use the Bible and stay on topic. I argue that being with a non-Christian is permitted in Scripture. First round acceptance....

How/When will the world end? Judgement?

CountCheechula
Truth_seeker

This debate does not apply to the Pro/Con status. But they still are labels, since I made the debate I chose Con, Con is cooler. Con sounds the bad guy if you think about. Just wanting to know between a smart christian mind and hopefully get answers. Internet Church Talk. You can start your arguments I don't care. Thanks!...

Jesus of Nazareth: Fact or Fiction?

TheMatt
SimpleObserverofThings

I will be taking the Pro side that Jesus of Nazareth actually existed as a historical figure in antiquity. My opponent will take the opposition and claim he never did exist. I would also like to thank my opponent for accepting this debate. *Note: This debate will not be about who was Jesus of Nazareth. It only seeks to argue whether or not he existed as a real figure in history.* Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening Argument Round 3: Rebuttal Round 4: Conclusion...

The Christian God As Described In the Bible Does Not Exist

AlternativeDavid
telisw37

Rules Round 1: No arguments. Just acceptance. Round 2/3: Arguments and rebuttals Round 4: Closing statements. No new arguments No "god of the gaps" arguments allowed. Any violation of the rules results in conduct points going to the other debater. Mutual violation results in a tie for conduct. Definitions: God of the gaps: If science can't explain it, god did it. Exist: To be real I look forward to a good debate. If you cannot accept it, it is because you have not complet...
