Hello. I would like to begin by thanking my opponent for challenging me to this debate. Though, perhaps I should begin by asking my judges not to vote on their own personal bias but rather, on the logic that will exceed my opponent's debate.
My opponent's entire first argument consisting of one contention and no further explanation as to why God loves me.

"yes, god loves you!
in every way.
for everything you do.
yes.
everything.
by him loving you,
he exists.
and loves you.
:)"
I would like to add that the smiley face is a nice touch. My opponent's first and only contention deals with a circular argument. In order for God to love me, He must exist. And for Him to exist, he must love me. God cannot exist unless he loves me and he cannot love me unless he exists.
My opponent's logic is flawed for the following contentions.:

1) My opponent has not explained to me how God exists except through circular logic.

A) We must first define love
Merriam webster defines
love as "strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties "

B) We must define exist.
exists as "to have real being whether material or spiritual "
Merriam-Webster defines the spiritual side of existance as a question or an assumption. We cannot assume God exists without proof.

2) My opponent's case sounds like a thread that you send to umpteen people and your wildest dreams will come true.

I believe I have said all that is necessary. Please, if you can answer any of my questions with logic, all circular logic aside, I would greatly appreciate it.
For the above reasons, that is why I urge you to vote in Negation of this resolution.

I would like to offer flor my deepest of thanks. This truly will be an easy win. You see, my problem isn't the topic or its message, for I myself am a Christian, but the fact that this user most likely singles out Christian members in the hope that said members will forfeit or refuse to argue in the first place. Either way, she's getting God's message out but in a very annoying and detestable way.
Thank you for the challenge and again, no bias, please.

And Hell is made for those who don't follow His son Jesus Christ.

No, I never said God didn't love me. I said she first had to prove God. I believe in God, love Him, and know He loves me (Hence why he sent His son to die for me) But I was challenged to this debate and I think the only way for a debate to be drawn out is if you can prove that the factor exists. If this had said: "Draxxt thinks God loves him." Or "Hypothetically, God loves Draxxt" I would have no argument.

I am a born again believer and have been in the grace of God since September. thank you, flor, and thank you voters.

I personally don't think God loves draxxt. Really, just look at him. I wanted to vote against draxxt because I think God would do that, but then I think that would mean that I would be saying that God loves draxxt, which is just not a possibility. Holy cow, this is a really tough vote. But okay, draxxt, God doesn't love you, so there. So you win, I guess. Geez. Like SapMundy said, that's why God invented that other place...

I really don't think God loves draxxt. I mean, if you were God, could you actually love draxxt? I think it would be really hard to do. That's why God invented that other place.

I don't think draxxt is doing anything......
except for getting really really worked up over this silly debate.
I've said it before, and i'll say it again. DRAXXT WON THIS DEBATE!!!!!!!!!!

HAD I BEEN ABLE TO POST A REBUTTAL, I COULD HAVE BACKED UP MY ARGUMENT AND THE RESOLUTION.

People perhaps are votting for me because of blind faith.
And based on your faith draxxt,
that should be a good thing.

Please, stop voting for a person who did not debate the resolution. Vote, as I've said, for the most logical debator. My opponent had one arguemtn which I clearly refuted, ergo, you vote CON.

Fine, take it as you will. I will tell them not to vote for me for a while, fair? Or at all if you wish. Thank you for your concern, though.
