Is Christianity good for the world, or bad for it? Has Christianity done anything for the world? Has Christianity set the wrong example? What do you think of Christianity? Is Jesus the answer to modern problems? You decide and vote.

Thankyou for providing me with the opportunity to air my thoughts on this subject. To begin with I think Christianity, as set forth by the words of Jesus in the New Testament, is good for the world and many people have found it to be a comfort in times of stress despite the problems of interpretation and implementation; And because of the confusion that exists in deciphering the message I think Christianity is due for an overhaul.

We're agreed I suppose, that Jesus needs to come back and set things straight.

Resolved: My opponent was not strengthened by Christ (Philippians 4:13) thereby proving Christianity in it's present state to be unfit for this world.
