Non believers can debate but must follow certain rules

1) no going off topic - talking about the existence of God

2) no bashing - saying "God is a murderer, he killed babies, etc. "

3) arguments must be based on Scriptures or evidence

Failure to comply with the rules will result in the loss of conduct points

First round acceptance

I accept your debate and well be basing my debate off of your comment "The right one" is kind of hard to define even in Christianity, but it's basically implied that God will somehow when your ready "bring" the "right one" for marriage to you. And would like to start the debate by saying gl and let's keep this nice friendly

While the Bible says that God made Eve from the rib of Adam (Gen. 2:21), earlier in v. 18, he says "I will make a helpmeet for him", not THE helpmeet.

There are several laws which allow for remarriage:

Deuteronomy 22:13-29

Deuteronomy 21:10-14

If marriage was eternal on earth, why would remarriage be permitted?

The books of the Proverbs are not a collection of sayings carrying an absoluteness as any other book of the Bible. The Proverbs require divine wisdom to use them in it's proper context. According to Holman's dictionary:

"Proverbs are designed to make one wise, but they require wisdom to be used correctly. Proverbs are true, but their truth is realized only when they are fitly applied in the right situation. Job's friends misapplied proverbs about the wicked to righteous Job. Many things have more than one side to them, and the wise person will know which is which.." (1)

Thus when people quote Proverbs 31, wisdom must be used in discerning what kind of wife would benefit you. Thus God wanted to give us principles to be able to wisely choose the right kind of man or wife fit for us.

Books, such as the Bible, don't "teach" anybody anything.

Reasons for voting decision: THIS IS NOT A VOTE BOMB! Conduct and arguments to Pro due to the Concession. S&G to Pro, because Con used no punctuation in his first round and Pro used a ton of Sources.

Reasons for voting decision: A concession from Con. Pro had better S&G, got a concession (and gave an unrebutted case), which gets argument points, and actually sourced his case. Con only gets conduct for having graciously conceded, and not forced Pro to wait out the clock from forfeited rounds that would have been a waste of time. Pro's conduct was perfectly fine, I just think that Con's conduct should be rewarded as at least some encouragement for it.
