    I'll battle on OV vs. Arminianism

    Should the KJV be the only English translation in use? (I say no)

    Is God in time? (I can argue either side)

    I think this is a good starting list. Let me know what you think.

      Well, of course. God's punctual.

          I think God is more like Gandalf.

              "Do not try the patience of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."

              I'd love to see a debate on the nature of Scripture, either on general philosophies of inspiration, on principles of translation, or on the KJV-Only debate specifically. (Seems like that's kind of where the other thread in this folder is heading.)

              Some possible questions to pose:
              • Why do we regard the Bible as the inspired Word of God? Is its own testimony about itself sufficient?
              • Why is the Bible regarded as authoritative for Christian life? What role does tradition play in the Christian's view of spiritual authority?
              • What is the most "correct" method of translating Scripture? (Formal equivalence, dynamic equivalence, or paraphrase?)
              • Is the King James Bible the only Bible for English-speaking Christians?

              Just some suggestions for others. I don't think I'm prepared to enter this particular fray yet. But now that I look at this list, I see that only the last one has a clear Yes/No line.

                I am kind of new here but I would be interested in debating. I have read the rules and understand them.

                Here are three topics that I would be interested in:

                1) Is the gift of tongues for today? (I would like argue that it is)

                2) Does the Ontological Argument prove that God exists? (I would say so)

                3) According to the Old Testament, was Jesus Christ the messiah? (altough I most certainly think he was the messiah and more, I could go either way on this one for debate purposes)

                Anyone interested?

                  you should probably do some debating in the theology areas first for some warmups. Then you can see who you clash with, and then challenge them.

                  We are currently in the midst of another battle right now, but you could be next in line.

                    I have witnessed Jaltus use such a term so loosely, "battle".

                      perceptions that have been reinforced by opinions that have been constructed by perceptions and further reinforced by opinions about those perceptions and yadda yadda yadda. you wont have much ground to debate on but it sounds like fun for me. how about:

                      divine assurance of absolute truths- real enough to validate all of
                      existance or fallible human chemical response

                      religion- safe haven for all or global corporation

                      the bible- reliable beyond personal opinion or sliced spliced diced and edited beyond the ability to hold it as a referance for absolute truth
