THE TARTAR DISCLAIMER :) for the purposes of this debate, both participants agree-or-at-least-pretend-to-agree that the bible is completely true.

I will accept this debate in the interest of presenting an opposite view. The premise "TULIP is true" would infer that it is an absolute truth and based upon a Biblical foundation. I will present sufficient Biblical evidence to at least question the absoluteness of the Calvinistic doctrine contained in TULIP.

While I would agree that the Bible is completely true, it is open to interpretation. One must consider who is the one speaking; who it is written to; who is the one speaking talking to; what was said; why was it said; where did this happen; when did it take place; could this happen again; and, how does it apply to me.

It is apparent that the instigator has closed his account here on Debate.org and, therefore, it is pointless to post any arguments at this time.

Thank you!

Thanks, Logical-Master! It appears, however, that my opponent has closed his account and there won't be this debate after all.

Thanks for your comments. I have not had any formal training in debating nor did I belong to the debate team in high school.

This shall be rather interesting. Personally, I used to be in favor of TULIP, but I've been clobbered enough times in debates by my debate mentor to see the faults of it. From what I've seen from both debaters, I'd say Preacher has this in the bag, but I've been wrong before. :D
