This is my first debate on this Website, so I thought I would start with something I know about well: The religion of Jehovah's Witnesses.

I feel that this religion is restrictive in many aspects and restricts my life. But for this debate, I shall be against this in which I will be saying that this religion is not restrictive.

1st round is acceptance.
NiamC

Pro

I accept.

I look forward to the next round.

kinsky forfeited this round.
NiamC

Pro

My opponent has forfeited this round. I don't why I accepted this debate
(60 minute limit for arguments, not 3 days). Anyway, to make this debate fair I will put my arguments In the next round but also because I have nothing to argue against.

I look forward to my opponents belated reply
Debate Round No. 2

I concede. I bloody hate Jehovah's Witness. I don't have time for this debate.
Jehovah's witness doesnot allow people to be involved with current and political affairs.
It is too strict on sexual conduct, we are not allowed to smke or take any drugs or alcohol. We are condemned if we use profanity ( which is very hard not to succumb to in modern times). It is against homosexuality any types of sex before marriage and we are not allowed to show affection in public. This religion restricts us of being able to do many sports.


I concede. I realise that I have no actual argumments against the topic.
NiamC

Pro

Well, my opponent has conceded and has basically provided some of the points that I would have included, but I would have extended my argument. Jehovah's witness is not a bad religion in my opinion.

This has been an awful 'debate'.

The very fact that they don't force you to be one kinda makes it none restrictive. But I'll assume you didn't mean that. I will say they will restrict you from anything that could hurt you or others. I wouldn't consider the cage to a lion a irrational restriction.

If you belive in God, and want to do him a favoure, tell me, what can you, a mere human do for God in return for what he has done for you?

Think about what you consider restriction again, are those really restriction or are they just protections?

The their are many people who want to do what the world is doing, going to war killing one another, spreading HIV/aids and many more unsafe behaviour, these are things that the satan want you to be a part of, when God told us "we are not part of this world" that was something to really think about,

Do want the ways of the world or do you want to not be a part of it?
