I wonder if there will be any more objectivity this time around.
    Actually, I knew Turbo would win the last debate, but that didn't really change my opinion on the subject.

    ps. Although I agreed with Theo's position, I was dissapointed that he was such a bad loser.

      1. In the Book of Revelation there are 8 passages of Scripture mentioning the "overcomers" of the Lord. Why are ONLY overcomers mentioned as not being "hurt" by the Lake of Pur?

      2. If only overcomers are not hurt by the second death/ a.k.a. the Lake of Fire, are the vast majority of the house of God subject to the Lake?

      3.What does hurt/ ajdikevw in the Koine mean?

      4. How does the Lake differ from our God the Consuming Fire?

      5. Where & when did the Lake originate?

      Good questions Zadok.

      I would like to see them questions answered too.

              LOL, I guess LogosX will have an unexpected cheering section in this debate.


              I'm with PK in my understanding so far, but I expect to learn from the debate. I haven't studied the topic much for myself. Looking forward to it.

                  Indeed!

                  And, no doubt, many will watch this debate rooting for their own position and with their minds already made up.
                  They will not be open to new ideas, nor the logic behind them, no matter how scriptural the arguments.

                  But, hey....it's going to be fun!

                    I could try to imagine a vengeful sadistic god compelling billions of individuals to eternal
                    torture.

                    Trying ... trying ... nah, ain't gonna happen. But I'll enjoy the debate nonetheless.

                    Go Logos!

                        I am so glad God is Love (love does no harm) and not a Sadistic monster. I couldn't love a god that was going to torture billions of people in a fiery pit for eternity.

                          It is possible to believe the Bible teaches unbelievers will be in the Lake of Fire for all eternity and not believe that God is a sadistic monster. I for one do not believe that God is a sadistic monster and neither do any of the Christians I know who hold to the orthodox position of unbelievers being eternally separated from God in the Lake of Fire. There are many Christians on this very website who believe the Lake of Fire is eternal and I would venture to say none of them believe that God is a sadistic monster. And we love God with all of our hearts and lives as the Scriptures say we should. So it is possible to believe the Biblical doctrine of the Lake of Fire and still love the Lord.

                          Have a good day!

                            You are right, God is not sadistic, which is why He doesn't force people to be with Him for eternity when they do not wish to do so.

                              Sure, as long as your god is on your side and the suffering of others doesn't
                              matter, its all good!

                                Do you ever get the feeling that sometimes the heavenly host just look down at us, see us arguing and debating trivia and say, "They are such morons," ?
                                No, I never went to Bible College, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night...
