Thank you to Swordmaster for instigating this riveting debate and wish him the best of luck throughout its trials and tribulations or what have you.

In this debate, I will be proving that this is indeed a debate. As the resolution states "No debate" I will assume the resolution is "This is not a debate".

Debate = A scenario in which two opposing sides must prove by fact or persuasion that the other side is wrong

Good luck.

Well the fact is I am not debating on this so what say you?

I appreciate my opponent responding in a quick manner.

-----------Refutation------------

Refutation 1: "Well the fact is I am not debating on this so what say you?"

As a matter of fact, by opposing me, you have officially made this a debate, as a debate is two opponents which of whom disagree on a topic.

Please vote con as this is now a debate.

In all honesty, I was hoping to use this for a real debate with Preacher Andy, but you jumped in and I have learned a lesson. NO this was supposed to be re-titled and so for a future debate. So I am not debating you just ginving an explanation.

From now on please cancel the debate. Greatly appreciated.

-------Contention 1: This is a debate-----------
In rounds 2,3 and 4, you contended against me saying that this is a debate, but however, by opposing you have made this a debate. Thank you. VOTE CON.

Incorrect. You have been refuting me and opposing hence making this a debate, therefore, you are evidently wrong in this debate and thus PLEASE VOTE CON. Thank you.

I would take this but I am way too busy with class to follow your morning/evening thing. I would need the full 3 days for each round so that I can fit it into my schedule. I'm also unclear about what you mean by asking each other questions. Is "why doesn't Ephesians 2:8-9 negate your resolution?" an acceptable question? Why don't we both just use the Bible as our source and present our arguments for the requirements of salvation? I'll accept if you let me know that that's okay.

"Thereby no matter how much a person has emotions for God or Jesus, belief alone will not saved a person from their sins."

And what have you to say about the criminal on the cross next to Jesus? He was a criminal his whole life and was dying for his sins and crimes when he professed faith in Jesus. Jesus then told him that he was saved (and obviously that criminal was never baptized). Are you calling Jesus a liar? If you think Jesus must have lied about that person being saved, you have much more important issues to debate than what baptism does or does not do. If Jesus can lie, we're all in trouble.

It is all through the new testament but I will reserve comment so I do not preempt the debate.

Where in the Bible does it talk about baptism? The stuff with John the Baptist, right?

72 hours is the length of rounds, not the entire debate. I don't even think that there is a time option to make a 5 round debate last a max of 72 hours.
