The Bible is not absolute and the Bible is not final.

pivot

The Pro position, (mine) is that the Bible has never been absolute or final. Parts of the Bible may or may not be inspired, (that is up to the reader to decide). Most of what passes for an absolute is pure superstition. We do not have to fear the Bible. We can do anything we want with it. It is nothing more than paper and ink or even less than paper. It certainly cannot stand the test of time and has proven to be mostly hyperbole, especially the Old Testament part. This debate is in four sect...

Open debate, thanks for your comments. I would contest that the Abrahamic religious mind act as a barrier to personal transformation and actively prevents it. For those who wish to contribute can you please tell me in detail what personal changes in your mindset or awareness that have occurred as a result of religious belief sets. cheers Kebo....

God probably prefers bugs to people

God probably prefers insects to people. This is based on the idea of "evidential apologetics", and assumes the following: God exists. Nature can tell us about what he is like. By God is meant, at the bare minimum, the God of deism, but not to the exclusion of other ideas. An intelligent creator who set the universe in motion --- might be Allah, might be Krishna, might be Jesus. Might not. Whatever. You get the idea. By nature is meant the earth and stuff. If you don't assume, or...

Alright. Please state your reason for believing in God and the evidence you have to support this and then I will make my rebuttal and argument. Remember this before you argue state whether you believe in a personal God or a God of order and creation...

The ideal Christian husband/wife or "right one" is made not found

Truth_seeker
ATHOS

I argue that the "right one" is not found as some would expect. The right one is not "perfect", but is made by experiences of battling sin, self-discipline, and the fruits of the Spirit. Failures and sin is necessary for the Christian to be shaped into the person that God deems for a relationship if it is his will. First round acceptance...

The Bible does not favor a pre-tribulation rapture

Jellon
Truth_seeker

For this debate, the Bible contains the standard 66 books used by most Protestants. Pre-tribulation rapture is the belief that Messiah will remove all His followers from the earth just before the prophetic time of tribulation. This interpretation is portrayed in the "Left Behind" series of books, some of which became movies. 2000 Elo is required to vote using the "select winner" system. Con will contend that the Bible clearly teaches a pre-tribulation rapture. As Pro, I will contend that thi...

Is there such thing as a "Religion of Peace" and is peace even attainable?

Feroste
mightbenihilism

I argue there is no such thing as a religion of peace. The only examples would be things like Buddhism and Jainism which explicitly speak out against violence. Every other religion justifies some sort of violence as a sort of necessary tool to bring about peace. "Peace is an occurrence of harmony characterized by lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts at r...
