Debate Rounds (3)
The rules shall be the same as last time. I will post three topics here and you can select and argue upon one of them (don't argue until Round 2). Also it isn't necessary to debate my argument (or for me to debate yours), as that will diminish precious minutes. And you can argue for or against the topic you select.
Okay, we have ten minutes.
Your three topics are:
1. Can a Christian lose salvation?
2. Is Sidney Crosby really a player good enough to meet the media hype?
3. Marijuana Legalization
That gives you a diverse selection. Christianity, sports and an ethical issue.
TOPIC: Can a Christian lose salvation?
Salvation is a gift from God given to all who believe. Romans 10:9 tells us the steps required for salvation. 1 John 5:13 tells assures us that we may KNOW that we have salvation. John 10: 28-29 tells us that no one can rescend the gift of salvation given by God.
While there isn't time to validate the Bible as a legitimate source beyond circular reasoning, (did this for Gep Laureate's sake :O)) 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that the Bible is a source for validation.
Historians have confirmed that John wrote the books of John and 1 John, and that Paul wrote the book of Romans. Therefore that is sufficient in that end. Given the aforementioned, I request your support on my ballot.
I am going to argue that 'The Game' should be abolished as nonsensical since it really is pointless and no person can emerge victorious. Let us consider what 'The Game is about'. It is a mental game in which one is supposed to not think of 'The Game'. Obviously this is a pointless exercise, as what people actually spend a good deal of time pondering whether or not to think about it? Thousands are not even aware of its existence.
Furthermore, some of its rules are absurd. For example, one is purported to have to declare the loss of the game, which, in turn, requires thinking about it. This could result in a never-ending turmoil. Also, declaring that 'the game' is ended is an absurd notion, since many will hardly realize which game it is that the person is talking about - there are a great many games playable on the planet. A vague reference to 'the game', will obviously cause confusion among the ranks.
And, furthermore, as Tw proclaims, the game cannot be won as if somebody thinks about it at all, they shall lose.
Hence, due to its foolishness, it should be abolished. Thanks!
