I am not out to slander Mormons, I have friends that are of this religion. Having said this, Christians believe that because Jesus Christ died for our sins, we shall receive the gift of eternal life in heaven if we accept him.

Mormons do not believe this. Therefore, how do they call themselves Christians? You will find no crosses in Mormon temples, or churches. They do not believe the blood Jesus shed for all mankind is good enough for the redemption of man's sins.

Mormon's believe that God was once a man, as we are right now. They also believe that we can be equal to God. In they're eyes; Mormonism is the ONLY way to heaven. No other sect will be going to heaven. Joseph Smith (Mormonism's founder) will come at the end of days at the right hand of Jesus and rule the earth. Without his good recommendation no one shall pass into heaven. This is heresy.

They're ultimate goal is Godhood. To become a God or Goddess, and rule they're own planet. Does it not occur to any Mormon's that this was the EXACT reason the Devil was cast down? No one can be great as our God.

Hopefully if my opponent doesn't want to debate, I can start this one again. This has the potential to be a very good debate!

This is a verse from the second book of Nephi in the Book of Mormon
2nd Nephi 25: 26
26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.
So for not being christians they sure talk a lot about the guy.

So that is uber-lame that philosopherpirate didn't even post a debate on this topic and he won! If you voted for him you are ridiculous! It is called debate.org not readthetitleandvoteonproorconbasedonwhetherornotyouagreewiththetitle.com So next time...don't be lame. Vote for the person who actually put some effort into it...or if you disagree don't vote at all!

Okay, well since I am a mormon, [and have been since I was 6] I have to say that most of this is not even true. We do believe that Jesus died for our sins, and we DON'T think that we can be equal to God. "They do not believe the blood Jesus shed for all mankind is good enough for the redemption of man's sins." That's not true either. Sorry, but I suggest that before you post something like this, then you get your information straight from your 'Mormon' friends. :)

I will not. Pro was misinformed. She was tghe only one with a point, yes, but it wasn't a valid one.

On second thought, No debate is worse than a false debate. Vote declaration is changed.

If someone wants to start such a hate and ignorance filled topic, though, she should be prepared for any unfairness head that way.

Draxxt,

You are supposed to vote on who made the BETTER arguments. in this case, con made NO argument, and therefore you voted unfairly.

Consider changing your vote.

I never said Mormon's don't believe God didn't suffer, they believe him dying on the cross wasn't good enough as payment for all humanity's sins.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made extremely biased and untrue comments, which I consider to be worth less than worthless, basically lowering her score to a negative, which makes 0 more positive than her.
