My counterpart must prove the commandments are morally good, strictly because they are God"s will. In simple speech, if you want to be morally good, stick to God"s will, despite you don"t understand why.

On the other side, I must prove that the commandments are good, thus God commands them. So the will of God is not the priority, but agreeing him.

Great!

I don't mean to be disrespectful, but only this time I have to yield my turn in order to sculpt my argument the way I planned.

Please, be the first to argue. Tell why the only way to be morally good, is by obeying God.

The commandments are good, so God commands them.

Thus, atheists can be morally right despite the fact they don't believe in God.

Does any believer want to replace my opponent?

He seems to have forgotten this debate.

the bible is stories of how cause and effect applies to existence of the mind, eat the fruit satan says, and god says don't eat the fruit, where as the root of all evil is love, money is the bark of the tree, and the fruit at the top represent power, and evil loves power, so god is right ;)

the fruit can represent money, and to disobey the word of "god" is therefore a bad thing, as these things necessarily apply to existence, evil cant exist without love, so love is evol

its like do bad and you will feel bad, write it in the book and now god seems more true based on your experience as it does match existence as it is

All the ten commandments are there to give us a pathway to prosperity and health. And will also keep our souls free from depression and fear. And the first one will keep at bay those who want to lord over others. Like liberals and politicians.
