Debate: a contention by words or arguments.

Contention: : a point advanced or maintained in a debate or argument

It is one thing for us to talk amongst each other or converse about different subjects, but I have seen more venom flying on this and other Christian networks than should be allowed. I know that we may not agree on all issues but the sin happens when we enter into debate and this displeases the Lord. In the scripture, debating is right next to MURDER. We must all repent, those of us who have participated in this DEBATING fashion. As shown in the scriptures below, debating is an unrighteous deed. Be ye angry and sin not. Let not the sun go down on your wrath.

Romans 1:29
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

2 Corinthians 12:20
For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:

Even though we may not know each other personally, I love all of you dearly and ask for forgiveness for entering into debate with anyone. Hopefully you will do the same and we can all speak according to the spirit when disagreements arise. (LET’S TONE IT DOWN A BIT, AND NOT GET SO PERSONAL ON THES ISSUES)

May God Bless you all.

You are correct, Sister.
I openly repent to Bro Trevor - I have been trying to knock his socks off about the President...
And there is no room for that AT ALL.

Sorry Bro Trevor if you are out there. :-) That was my flesh getting in the way.
Proverbs 15:1
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
I know Anthony, sometimes a good argument (debate) feels good doesn't it? LOL....
Haven't seen you in a while brother Luckett. Good to see you again.
I guest this means, we have to say what we will and just walk away. Man, that's going to be hard! LOL
Sounds like a plan.
So true. Arguing and debating basically stir up anger and get's you no where. The scriptures do say debate is wrong, so I guess what you say is true. Friendly conversation is good but sometimes we do tend to take it too far.
Debating is not a sin, the bible states even being angry is not a sin, unless you go there in sin with it. It's the attitude that comes forth and brings sinful actions.

There are those who cannot stand the idea that others do not agree with them, "I'm wrong?" throw a tantrum, and pout. this comes from a Spirit of Pride.

Debate can be used as a study tool

Good Point Bro. Watson
Well Fugett,
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.....I guess since you say debate is not a sin, we can all disregard the scripture In Romans and II Corinthians that says it is. We can now officially remove it from all bibles......LOLOLOLOL and declare it as pride to have a constructive disagreement.

Even though DEBATE is listed next to murder in the scripture, we should go by the new understanding of the word and forget what the Bible says about it. We should adhere to Fugett's interpretation.....LOLOLOLOLOL

Now that sounds like PRIDE to declare the scripture wrong and SELF AS RIGHT.


But we all still need to grow in our understanding. I know sometimes it's hard to play nice so we just continue with our assaults. Let's not. Let's agree to disagree. In the Love of Christ. That is easier than bitterness. Wouldn't you say Evangelist Fugett?

Be Blessed.
Ah, ah, ah, sounds a little debatable...LOL.
