Not believing in god is not a sin
Debate Rounds (3)
My opponent by what it appears has taken the pro of the argument. As represented in his initial argument this is contrary to his official standpoint on the website however. For this debate I will ask viewers and voters to keep in mind that my opponent is indeed pro argument and not con as it appears while I however will be the con aggressor when in fact my label says pro.
Definition of terms.
1. God- A transcendent, Immanent, omnipotent, immutable, omniscient being and creator of the world according to the Christian viewpoint.
2. Sin- 1. A violation of Gods' will or anything that violates the ideal relationship between an individual and God. (2. A willful act that goes against Gods, will.
To begin my argument I chose to define those two terms. One being God so we can see his attributes that may take place later in the debate. The other term I chose to define is sin in Abrahamic context. The argument that not believing in god is not a sin is an evident theological fallacy. Looking at the supposed words of God we can learn that one of the greatest sins is to turn unto "man made or false gods." This is represented by the very first rule God tells us in his commandments he gave unto Moses
"I am the lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other god before me."
Here this obviously contrary to what my opponent argues. If the definition of sin is, what separates a relationship between God and is what goes against Gods' will, then there is no possibility that worshiping another god is not sin.
Further elaborating, we see two problems. One being if I worship the god Thor and the god of the Christians I willingly go against gods command and thus according to the definition of sin not be sinning. Also if I being a person worship willfully Thor and not the Christian god I am placing Thor over precedence over God and thus hindering the relationship between me and the Christian god. according to our definition once again this is sin.
Therefore I claim I have won the argument based on I have disproven theologically my opponents argument. I have also eliminated through a basic fundamental law in Christianity it is not possible for my opponent to be correct.
According debate.org, there's other agrue about is "is not believing in a god a sin or not?' I read other people comments and they say its not, others say it is. People that actually study the bible and the goespel they would actually know the truth.
Before saying something very childish maybe you guys really need check the books and read it and write back to me.
