THE SIN ON BPN….WE DEBATE OURSELVES INTO SIN….GOD IS NOT PLEASED AND I REPENT…WHAT ABOUT YOU?…..

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.

Amen, Minister, Ones can sometimes mistake passion for anger, and although close posting cannot convey the exact sentiments ones have as personal communication can.

Again, it's the attitude behind the discussion.
Min. Jenine,

I do take full responsibility for what I have written because all I did was a direct quote from the KJV bible. And although you accuse me of something that isn’t true, I forgive you. This post started because I wanted do something positive and I thought if someone ask for forgiveness you just forgive them. Instead Minister Jenine you’ve been slinging accusations. You said I did this post out of guilt and then questioned my reasoning. Please ask yourself, does that really make since seeing as I don’t know anyone here personally. I’m only saying that to give you something to think about. No harm meant. Also, you’ve repeatedly said I changed the wording in the KJV twice, and Minister it is in black and white in all of my KJV bibles and anyone else who has one. You can check it for yourself as I see some on this discussion have already done. I did not and would not change the words as you have stated. The KJV’s version is easily verifiable by any who reads it. Here it is again, placed below for you.

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

You said my statement about debate being next to murder was error, but here it is for you above, right next to murder in Romans 1:29


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:

The attitude and heart behind what was typed to start this discussion is very clear, forgiveness and reasoning so just as you asked me, I must ask you what is the real problem behind your responses? I love you Minister Jenine and ain't nothing you can do about it. But if that ain't good enough and you want to meet half way between Detroit and Down south here in the boonies, we can duke it out on the side of the freeway.

I'll be the one in the army boots with the little Jack Russell Terrier to bite your ankles....LOL...You know I'm just kidding right, just to loosen the conversation up a bit? Just thought I should say that....LOL


Be Blessed.
God Bless you Minister Jenine, no problem at all, I forgive you. I read through the scriptures you posted, and it does show that disputings took place in the bible.

That being said, the context of the word debate in the two scriptures I associated with this post are speaking of debating to the point of sin, strife, bitterness, anger, variance......etc. which is why they were associated with unrighteousness.

I think that we all know when things have gone to far and looking at the context of any discussion can show you the direction it is heading in.

Here are some examples of what I have witnessed here on BPN in terms of runaway debates:

To say that the KJV is the main translation is even seriously debatable!!
Amen
Proverbs 3:30
Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
walking awaaaaaaaaaaaay

Haha....LOL
Here is just my quick observation of the "FIRST RESPONDERS" on this discussion. You all have kept it in line with the purpose in which this post was intended. The purpose of this post was to examine ourselves and to fall in line with the message of peaceful interaction with one another. The intention of this post was not to provoke a battle of spiritual brawn.

Be Blessed.

Side Note: Evangelist Fugett, it is very big of you to walk away since you feel the conversation is not going in the direction you are pleased with. Be blessed.
If those guys needed Whoopin Anonymous, then you need Debaters Anonymous, Bro Watson!!
Bro Watson: You're right, they ARE Party-poopers! LOL! I too love to debate and clash swords per-say, because it was the way I learned the Word of GOD the best.

EW: It is said within the Book of Proverbs that "iron sharpenth iron; so does a friend sharpen the continence of his friend". I understand where you are coming from, but truth be told, the debate that was spoken of within the Bible to be sinful is the type that brings no good out of the outcome. For example, a leader of a Church says "we are going to do such and such.....", and some rise up to contend with him/her, not for the sake of clarity, but or rebellion. That sort of debate is evil. Nevertheless, BPN has had its share of ugly friendly-fire, and it must stop. I don't take much seriously, but I'm sure that my words have cut a few people to the core. Therefore I will repent and apologize about the manner of debate that I have brought to these names right now, with the issue being stated clearly (unless it was personal):

-EW Ministries for our long and ugly disputes over the Deity of CHRIST. I don't agree with the Oneness Doctrine, but we need not fight.

-Newview for the Obama issue. I do not agree with your stand on it, but the exchange have been unnecessarily venomous. I would love to continue with "venom-free convos".

-Bro. Watson for the Obama issue. I do not agree with your stand on it, but the exchange have been unnecessarily venomous. I would love to continue with "venom-free convos". I must say though that I actually ENJOY my sword fights with you bro, but hopefully, we can tone them down if useless offense has been used. (SEE YOU ON THE BATTLE FIELD FOR THE "APOSTOLIC" ISSUES!! LOL)

-Ms. Elaine Johnson for the "Obama" issue, and the "Afro-Centric" comments. I do not agree with your stand on it, but the exchange have been unnecessarily venomous. I would love to continue with "venom-free convos".

-James Pierce (& Hebraic Company) for the looooooong debates about the new covenant. I hold to my position, and I will readily stand strong for my faith, but being rude and being strong are two totally different things.

Evangelist Fugett, you good with me. Newview, you good with me. Bro Watson, you're good with me. Ms Johnson, you're good with me.

If I have shot shots at anyone else, let me know now so I can clear the air! SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD THY PEACE!!
We good Trevor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and when you are standing on the side of the Lord one is always good.
