Non Christians can debate as long as you stick with the Bible

Rules :

1. No going off topic

2. No insults

3. You must have Scriptures to support your position

Opening argument :

I take the position that men and women should work together as one and that no one should abuse the other. There are differences between both genders. According to the Hebrew pictograph of the male, the man is supposed to be a strong leader and dominant. The woman is more submissive by nature, however I believe that there are two aspects of relationships or "marriages " which brings equality.

1. Natural marriage - The man and woman are supposed to listen to each other and act as one.

2. Spiritual marriage - The woman must submit to the man only when he is in agreement with the will of God. If he is not then I believe that she has the option of disobeying her husband in favor of God.

First round acceptance

As a Christian, I believe women and men are equal but there is different responsibility of each gender. I'm not saying women need to cook and clean no way. Men are the strong ones, they are the dominant ones but in contrary they don't have the power to force u and tell u what to do or what to wear. God created women to be helpers to their husband. He didn't say cook for the men, men are humans who can cook for themselves. From my perspective, men would be nothing without women. Without women the world would be dead. Children can't be born, animals will die. The world population will decrease gradually same as if women didn't have men but women would survive a but longer as a lot of men are eager for sex, some can't cook etc. but in conclusion both genders need each other so why mistreat women? If women weren't in this world men would be all gay.

The debate is focused on the Bible

Wylted, who do you pick as judges? Can you tell me ahead of time?

I don't understand why the con must use scripture from the bible as the source for their argument... this debate has nothing to do with religion. I might accept it if it wasn't for that.
