Total Depravity

drcokeley

I must first declare that I am, generally speaking, a Reformed Augustinian with enough respect for John Calvin, Martin Luther, Jonathan Edwards, and John Piper to which much of this topic arrives. Also most of these ideas are not my own but a collection taking from reading that I have done and, as you may very well see, is taking directly from the Bible. Total depravity does not mean we are utterly depraved. because we could do evil with greater degree and frequency if we were not made with a...

The place for a Roma (Gypsy) homeland is in India and the place for a Jewish homeland is in Iraq.

brian_eggleston

Note: This is an amended version of a debate that was accepted and subsequently declined by a previous opponent. Now to the argument: In many respects, the histories of the Roma people (Gypsies) and the Jews are remarkably similar. In the 5th Century the Roma people left Northwest India and travelled to Egypt (hence the origin of the term "Gypsy", a corruption of the word "Egyptian") from whence they subsequently settled all over the world, but many in Romania. (1) Similarly, when th...

gay marriage should be legal

Gay marriage should be legal it because is unfair because of your sexuality you should be denied a right just like how you look,act, or how you live. The worst part is that people think they choose to homosexual. Now when people say this that's like saying : I want to be gay now after being strait my entire life. If this is a free country then why because of a sexual presence you are being denied right. Also people tell me that the bible says it's wrong. If it was like that in the bible god did...

In my school there is a division of pupils by intelligence into 'bands'. They are called M, A and Y going in descending order of intelligence. Being in my last year the bands have become more mixed and, as a result of this, teachers have had to try and teach at different paces, use different vocabulary and include entirely irrelevant inf...

without God there CAN BE NO MORALITY.

DATCMOTO
TheSkeptic

If there is no God then where, exactly, does morality reside? If morality is a purely human, subjective experience, Is it then subject to the tides of public opinion and the storms of history? If there is no objective standard above and beyond human endeavor then how can we say one morality is better ( or even use the word better! ) than others? How can we say that Hitler ( for example ) is evil if we have no universal measurement? no standard?...

The Incredible Hulk versus Spider man in a climax fight.

GodSands

I have desicided to choose a more light hearted debate. I am the pro for the hulk. The hulk has always been my favorite comic character. But spider man is also pretty cool. With the hulks super strenght I would like to think that the hulk would win easily against spider man. I have looked for information on the "web" ha. To find which super power would be more usful in battle. On ign.com spider man wins the most votes of the best super hero: incredible. Ok so the size of the hulk is h...
