    Isn't it about time?

    I was brought here by one of the Battle Royals, and I was just thinking ... it's been awhile since the close of the Zakath-Enyart debate, so isn't it about time that we have another? There are several topics we have been going around that would make interesting material:

    - Eternal Security

    - Open Theism

    - Can a Christian sin?

    - Catholicism: cult or denomination?

    The first two in particular would be interesting I think. Frankly, I owuld love to be a part of one, though with my time in seminary I don't really have time to devote to such a venture; that is why my posting here is eratic, and not often do I take time to make leangthy or extremely cross-referenced posts. But I would be very interested to see something new start up - anyone else agree?

    Re: Isn't it about time?

    BT,

    I would love to debate someone (honest) on eternal security(OSAS).

    I started debating Jerry Shuggart, but he became frustrated, got mad, and ran away.

    My goal is to seek the truth, not win a debate!

    Any takers?

    David.

    I like the look of item three, except that it's been beaten to death on a couple of threads. A nice battle royal to settle the issue might be nice though.

    When you think about it, #1 & #3 are related.

    But, if Sozo is ready for another spanking bring it on! LOL

    I would love to debate eternal security, and am part of the 'OSAS' crowd, but as I said I don't have time. I think that debate might have the most "market value" to bring interested people not yet at ToL in, but I think the "Can a Christian Sin" to end that debate from other threads would also be interesting (though I'm not personally led to take part in that).

    Open Theism would also be interesting, but I think the results would be somewhat rigged, because in contrast to Christianity as a whole (which is mostly closed-theists), there are a very high proportion of open thesit adherants here. Would make a very good debate though.

    Hey, that's not nice to get us all curious! Who were they and what was it going to be about?
    For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!
    Galatians 5:13-15

    Yeah, a new Battle Royale would be nice. I'd like to see an actual debate about Evolution. The Hilston stuff was interesting and all, but it didn't really have much to do with evolution.

    Maybe aharvey vs. bob b or bowhunter, although I'm starting to doubt whether bob or bowhunter know anything about evolution...

    Sure, SUTG, but on what rational basis do we assess "evidence."
