Did Jesus really need to be crucified?

Percivil
philochristos

Take it as an alarm clock for us. Jesus"s mission was to save us from sin and part of the process was to make us realise we were sinners. Which was a wake up call for us. And also there is a reason why jesus was called the LAMB OF GOD WHO TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD. During jesus"s time when a person does something wrong, he/she will somehow pass on the fault to a lamb and the lamb would be killed for the mistake. So jesus was a lamb who took all our sins and beared the consequence for us....

The bible was written by some king thousands of years ago

philochristos

I believe whole heatedly , the bible was written by someone in a high position thousands of years ago , to give the (then) current society a set of morals and values to live by. And I also believe god isn't real but is a made up leader of this fictional story. Give me a logical reason to think otherwise....

God and Ghost basically have the same characteristic, both can't be seen. So if there is an atheist who denied the existence of god but believe that ghost exist...isn't that contradictory?...

Should consensual sterilization be free?

philochristos

I say yes. I'm a woman, and I was sterilized. I had my proceedure for free, and this will save me hundreds of dollars worth of birth control over my lifetime, and I don't want children. It is a one time proceedure, and only requires birth control for 12 weeks, or 1 week if a man has a vasectomy....

Is Christianity...the Anti-Christ?

REVERENDREAL
philochristos

IS CHRISTIANITY...THE ANTI-CHRIST? We all know that Jesus was not a Christian. He was born in the Jewish faith. We know that Christianity did not even come about until some time after the death of Jesus. Some say the following year after his death while other say about three hundred years later. We know from the Bible, the great story about the rich man meeting Jesus. He approached Jesus and said. Good Master, how can I get into Heaven? The first thing Jesus shouted at him was.. Don't...

Can we use logic to prove logic?

NKaloms
philochristos

I have read that many philosophers (Gorgias, C.S. Lewis, and others) believe that logic cannot be proved, and that we must assume (have faith in) that logic just works. I find this extremely interesting. At first I was distressed at this thought, for how can we know for certain that anything is certain if can't know that logic is certain. I wrestled with this for a while until I came to an interesting conclusion. The statement that "we cannot know anything for certain, including logic" is in fac...

If The Universe Has A Cause, That Cause Is A Personal Mind

Rational_Thinker9119
philochristos

I would like to debate Philochristos on this subject as I feel he is one of the most skilled Theists on this site. In this debate we will assume that the universe began to exist, and has a cause. It will be Pro's job to show that this cause is a personal mind, and my job to show why Pro's reasoning doesn't stand up to critical scrutiny. In Pro's last round he will simply put "no argument will be posted, as agreed." My opponent's first arguments will be posted in round one; no acceptan...

Aim:In this debate, the opponent must prove why I Think equals to the existence of one's selfWhile I will try to disprove such ideaBurden of proof:Since this is more of a philosophical debate, not all arguments must be strictly supported by evidence (but any proof/sources are welcome :P)Rules:Please use the first round as acceptance, you can use the remaining rounds in whatever ways you like
