You Can't Justify Yourself

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Jwmart21587

How can you justify yourself? I say you can't. God loves you, God wants to be your justifier. You cannot justify yourself. What's your excuse for living? God loves you and wants you to live forever. He wants you to know Him as your justification. Trying to keep the arguments short. I know people want to go on and on and on and on explaining how they are justified, but you cannot justify yourself. If you can't explain in less than 1000 characters how you are justified, you never...

You Don't Have to Burn in Hell, You Can Be Saved From It Now.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Dennybug

You do not have to burn in Hell. You can be sure that you are saved from it now. Are you sure you won't burn in Hell? I am sure I will not burn in Hell. If you are sure you won't burn in Hell, then you are agreeing with me that you do not have to burn in Hell and you should not be arguing the con position in this debate. The is not "Hell is real" or "Hell is immoral", those would be different debates. The Con position for this debate is...

The whole world should be vegan

This does not include primitive tribes. I am also not saying we should force everyone to become vegan, but I am saying that if everybody in the world was vegan, we would be much better off and the world would be a much more loving place....

problem of suffering, and God - a loving God can still exist

linate

it is often argued that God doesn't exist or doesnt care, due to the problem of suffering. here i am mostly looking at suffering of people who did nothing to cause it, and not at issues with evil acts. mostly natural suffering like being born in pain or dying in pain due to disease. i admit this is a tough philosophical problem. here are some ways i reconcile this with a loving God: -first, it's important to note that i do not argue that we are being punished for being sinful, as some t...

chicken or egg- i argue the egg came first

linate
Elder

answer: the egg. science is inexact in listing what constitutes a species. if the animal meets criteria like two wings a beak two chicken legs etc, then it is a chicken. the problem is that this is an inexact science. it is sufficient for everyday use, sure. but a line has to be drawn. how do we draw it? the lithmus test for whether the chicken or egg came first, should be that all chickens in existence now can breed with one last anscester in existence. this would be next to impossible as...

This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts Are Immoral!

Ajabi
kbub

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral is a re-do of one of the first debates I had from my old account. I lost miserably to kbub and I would like to see if my refined argument can now hold any ground. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no...

the golden rule in application is unclear

linate
Pfalcon1318

do unto others as you'd have them do unto you. one might argue the golden rule is clear, but could only referring in that instance that the rule is stated clearly. i agree with that. that's why i said 'in application' in the opening statement, it's not clear. if it is clear, what are the guiding principles that can determine how to act in accordance with it? instead of a mess of ideas, given this idea is hard for me to discuss in the abstract, i will give an example. for example. Joh...
