This debate is for anyone who has already accepted Christianity.

First round is acceptance.

I'd like to thank my opponent for accepting this debate. I'd LIKE to, but immediately after accepting he said he was going to forfeit lol.

Mark 16:16"Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned."
I feel like the bible can't be anymore clear here, baptism is necessary for salvation.

Is that your only argument? Lol I could have refuted it, ahwell vote pro

Well no it's definitely not my only argument. I just don't see a point of putting everything down when your forfeiting.

What a lame acceptance. "Easy wins" are all you look for, wolfman? I hope you rethink that strategy. I also hope you get to debate the topic to your satisfaction with a more challenging opponent, Brandon.

I may have to forfeit if this gets to intense, I was expecting an easy win but then I saw my opponents profile....

Reasons for voting decision: Although I myself do not agree with Pro's belief that baptism is necessary for salvation, I must point out that Con did not even bother to argue. He also forfeited and used poor grammar. Pro used a Bible verse, so he gets points for the sources part.
