Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision and has no bearing on salvation

Silentsvc

I firmly believe that Baptism is not a requirement to receive salvation. Salvation is only found in a relationship with Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12; John 14:6). This is not downplaying baptism as a sacrament however it has no salvific properties. I agree that Christians should be baptized but it is not a requirement for salvation....

raymondlewis
EdwardTrail

Round 1 makes his/her first arguments and accepts the rules I laid out. Round 2 Clash. Round 3 Clash and Con's closing thoughts. Atheism- disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods. God - a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity....

Should the world become atheist in order to function as a moral society?

AjayChandan
FirstRoyals

To begin my point, first question that we need to pose ourselves is- "Why do we need to be moral in an atheistic worldview?", "How would I know if my act is really moral?" "Because I live, I let others live" this would be the basic moral line..! Morality, in a Non-religious worldview is relativistic.. isn't it? In one culture People love each other, in other culture, they eat each other.., how do you judge them? We do not have any unique value for HUMAN BEING in scientific worldview, we are just...

Is it logical to conclude that there are no major changes to the Old Testament?

Truth_seeker

The position that i'm arguing for is that it is logical to conclude that there are no major changes to the Old Testament. What constitutes a major change is any word or phrase that is completely different when you compare two different texts of the same message. The Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew and Aramaic. The Hebrew Bible existing today is the Masoretic text. Until the 6th century A.D, only the consonants of the Hebrew text were written, but had no vowels. Traditions of r...

There is a life after death

CRMarsden
Josanta2

It is controversial and unsettling to propose that there is no life after death. Unfortunately, however comforting it would be to think that there is a life after death, there is absolutely no solid evidence to support the claim. In all likelihood there is absolutely nothing after death, no heaven or reincarnation, just oblivion, nothingness. Many religions, particularly mainstream ones, use this concept of a life after death as a means by which to comfort people, although this cannot be used a...

End Tax Breaks for Religious Organizations

sp33dracer
blabber90

P1: It is made clear in the American Bill of Rights Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. In other words, churches and other religious establishments should not have benefit over its people nor should Congress discriminate when it comes to tax breaks. P2: By allowing churches and other religious establishments to not pay their taxes, the burden is then shifted to us as regular citizens to have to pay those taxes for them....

Jesus Christ is God

radz
Valtin

The case of Pro is that according to the Bible, Jesus Christ is not only human by nature but also God by nature ( John 1:14, 1 Timothy 3:16,, Philippians 2:7). On this debate challenge, Pro must prove his case while Con must prove that Jesus is only human by nature. Scripture alone is to be used in providing arguments and Bible scholars may also be cited....

The Bible is not God's word

Valtin

The only honest view of the god debate is Agnosticism.

Ameliamk1

The proposition is really quite simple: While the debate surrounding the existence of any god, and humanity's propensity for formulating religions around such a perceived existence is an highly emotional debate, it is of little (if any) significance in human endeavor. Only religion and its proponents claim to speak on behalf of any deity, perceived or otherwise, and demand that lives be structured in accordance with religious philosophy and tenets. Not one religion has ever put forth a sin...
