Debates and Opinions

Debates

  • Original Sin is Biblical and Necessary for the Christian Doctrine.

    My opponent has taken the Con side of this argument by default when he said in another debate with a different debater that he did not believe that Original sin was necessary or biblical. I will be arguing that Original Sin is both biblical and necessary for the Christian religion.

  • Mary inherited the Original Sin

    First question should be asked is, what is the sin.Sin is, basically, having the knowledge of what God ordered to do and ordered not to do, and at the same time refusing to follow this orders.So for sin to be sin the person is required of having knowledge of the sin.If two year old child enters to mall and takes chocolate and goes out, is it considired to be sin. Answer is no, therefore they did not have the necessary knowledge, therefore what they did is not a sin, therefore there is no such a thing as "Original Sin".And this proves two points, "Original Sin" does not exist and ..... In order to say Mary (a.) inhereted original sin, you have to prove the concept of original sin, first.

Opinions

  • Are humans born innocent?

    That baby certainly doesn't have some concept of "original sin," that is, it does not carry with it the sin of some people from thousands of years ago who may or may not have even lived. Yes I don't really believe in "original sin." Just because Adam and Eve did something wrong doesn't mean every child is subsequently born damned. There is the argument that we al are born with "original sin", but what exactly does that mean anyway?

  • Is evolution incompatible with religion?

    Considering Genetics prove this to be an impossibility, that means that Adam and Even never existed, which means that there would be no original sin, which means that there is no need for Jesus, and with that gone, Christianity/Islam/Judaism falls apart from there.

  • Did God intentionally put the fruit of knowledge in Eden so "Man" would sin?

    I don't believe in the Original Sin I don't believe in the Original Sin No, God did not intend for "Man" to disobey Him I don't believe in the Original Sin Man came up with the story of the Garden of Eden and the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil as a way of explaining why life is suffering. It's possible, perhaps he knew all along "Man" would disobey Him I don't believe in the Original Sin I don't believe in the Original Sin There is no sin, everything is permissible. No, God did not intend for "Man" to disobey Him It's possible, perhaps he knew all along "Man" would disobey Him I don't believe in the Original Sin I don't believe in the Original Sin This is one of the reasons I became an atheist.

  • If you had to be a religion, which one would you be?

    Ex: If I claimed as an Atheist that the creation narrative is untenable, and a theist must assent to this claim, a Christian would have the argument of original sin (and therefore Jesus' reason for self-sacrifice) nullified. Original Satanic practice, however, is intended to be independent. Original Satanic practice, however, is intended to be independent.

  • Is Prevenient Grace Biblical?

    I understand prevenient grace to be: that grace which God has bestowed equally upon all men so that when the gospel message is given the effects of original sin are negated allowing the person to freely choose or deny the message. Regeneration is the grace the God bestows unto certain individuals that effectively negates the effects of Original sin so that the individual ultimately and inevitably will come to faith in Christ. : : I understand prevenient grace to be: that grace which God has bestowed equally upon all men so that when the gospel message is given the effects of original sin are negated allowing the person to freely choose or deny the message.

  • christianity is not from god, from people...

    according to the doctrine of christianity and trinity: {{{Original sin can be defined as "that sin and its guilt that we all possess in God"s eyes as a direct result of Adam"s sin in the Garden of Eden." The doctrine of original sin focuses particularly on its effects on our nature and our standing before God, even before we are old enough to commit conscious sin. for the book to be the origin of one religion or idea that idea needs to be announced or declared by that book, does the bible declare religion named christianity?(I am not sure if it declares please show me a verse) ok, let us come to original sin. you may say it is not like that in this world, then in justice, you are better than the god of original sin.
