Did Christ really have to die?

pivot
JasperFrancisShickadance

The position of Con, (me) will be that the actual literal physical death of Christ was not mandatory for Christian salvation to become effective. The following scripture will be given as a starter- But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." (I Samuel 16:7) This is a debate based on the Bible. It is taken for...

An atheist President would be okay

I am redoing this debate because my last opponent forfeited. For this debate, we're going to be talking about an atheist who is not anti-religion or an extremist. You can't use any arguments like "They would outlaw religion/destroy freedom of religion," maybe "They would shove their beliefs onto the nation," or "It's against the pledge." All of these are either slippery slope or just stupid arguments. Setup:Round 1- AcceptanceRound 2- Arguments/Rebuttals

Do objective moral values exist?

Hi, this debate is open to anyone. I will be taking the Pro position 'Objective Moral Values Do Exist' and the BoP is 100% on me. I will also attempt to show how flawed moral relativism is, as an ideology. My opponent, to win, must conclusively show that objective morality does not exist. My first debate, so any criticisms or suggestions for form are appreciated. I've kept it to 4 rounds. First round as invite plus 3 further rounds for opening arguments and rebuttals....

All drugs should be legalized for both medical and recreational use.

Yehonathan
Preston

This is my first debate, so I apologize in advance if I accidentally break any rules. :) I am NOT arguing that people should not be discouraged from using drugs. 1.Drug use is a victimless crime; people should be allowed to put what they want in their bodies. 2.Legalizing drugs would save people from going to prison. 3.Legalizing drugs would make it so that people can buy high quality drugs, and have the proper dosages so they don't hurt themselves as much. 4.The money from legalizi...

Satan's power is dynamic not static

pivot
Jikpamu

The position of pro, (me) is that Satan is not God's lackey. Con's position will be that Satan has to ask God before he can act. This debate is taking for granted that Satan in some form is real and certain terms will be used interchangeably such as Satan, Lucifer, Abaddon, Accusser, Adversary, Apollyon, Beelzebub, Deceiver, Devil, Enemy, Father of lies, God of this age, etc. The Bible, mythology, Rabbinical teachings and the Apocrypha is where the information about Satan is found. Science can g...
