Debate Information

This is mainly addressed to you @RickeyD. However, any other theists please join in. I have some questions for you. Let's start with this one: Let's imagine that God actually appeared to you one day and demanded that you must get down your knees five times a day would you do it and if so, why or why not?

    @ZeusAres42 this is very interesting because that’s what Allah does and if all those turban heads all bend over 5 times a day and fart all that turmeric towards the east then I’m sure that Ricky would do the same thing if his god told him to. It really depends on how much into there religion they are because Ricky is very strong on his Christian stuff that if his god told him to jump off the roof he would any way. And the thing is that Ricky will say that the reason is that he would ask no question because if god tell s him then he does it there is no reel reason because goddists don’t reason any thing any way.

    @ZeusAres42 ; There would be no need for my Lord to tell me to worship Him...I do daily in prayer and thankfulness and He knows my heart and He knows my love and adoration for Him...I've walked with Him daily for 30-years in intimacy...He has my life, my heart, my eternity and I want no one or anything else as my God.  But...thanks for asking.

    Do you know what imagination means? Also, would you say your faith in him means that you know all in your heart about who he is and what he wants?

    @ZeusAres42 ; I know exactly who my Lord is and what His desires are for my life in Time and in Eternity...I have no confusion regarding this matter...as the Holy Spirit indwells me and teaches me these things through sanctification.

    Would you do it? GOD as self-evident truth would show itself as the reason to be on my kness 5 times a day. Asuming a neccesity by the self-evdient truth yes I would go to my knees five times a day an possibly never understand why or why not.  Why or why not? A demand from truth is not the same as a demand form and idea of what a object may be.

    That's not a fair question to the believer in Christ, because he would not put regulations on us. He says in this scripture (Colossians 2:20-23 20Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21"Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!"? 22These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. 23Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.)

    Sorry I can't even imagine him telling us to do such a thing. @ZeusAres42

    Have you ever wondered if god dislikes the way you represent him or turns out people like you actually are cast out and sent to hell while you see us floating into heaven.. So much tryhard and you end up in hell. What would be ur faith then?


    you wake up one day and something appears to you only you can see no one else.. this thing speaks to you and everybody thinks ur hallicinating or crazy. this thing tells you to carry a cross across town and then get crucified on it for all mankind right before getting ready to farm your land that morning. Would you listen to this thing speaking to you or would u not do it? cause thats what happened to jesus am i right. would you have been willing to take jesus spot?

    @bjinthirty ;  I'm not a pacifist Christian...I am a warrior...I know and see the Truth about the American Marxist...the filth of abortion-infanticide, LGBTQ and its demonic destruction in the lives of those deceived by same...I see the work of demons in the Democrat Party, the Leftists, the Progressives....I tell the Truth and if anyone finds it offensive and the Truth unbecoming of a Christian...so be it....I will not answer to you or the filth you advocate...I will answer to my God; therefore, I will stand for His Truth and I will not waver. There is currently a grass-roots movement to eradicate the "Christian Nationalist" and if that day comes, I will die fighting for what I believe...God-Family-America, a free Nation of Patriots who love our Constitutional Republic as it was in its founding.

    This is the problem I have with all these vows, such as "We will be together forever", or "You can always rely on me", or "I will never give up on you", or "I will serve my country until the day I die". People change, circumstances change... You cannot be sure that the way you feel today will translate well to your life decades in the future. You may be deeply in love with some person today, for instance, but will not be able to stand them in 15 years, so why give promises in the conditions of strong uncertainty?

    For that matter, I have never understood lifelong marriage commitments. As I see it, you can only sensibly commit to loving and taking care of the person for as long as the relationship goes great. Sure, "Let us live together while we love each other, and then go separate ways" sounds less romantic than "We will be inseparable until we die, and then we will meet each other in the afterlife" - but romanticism here is detrimental to both people's happiness. The more honest and realistic promises between people are, the fewer nasty surprises there will be. And there certainly will be some.

    Even worse are commitments to big entities which you cannot reasonably deeply understand: companies, countries, ideologies... I realize that, when receiving the US citizenship, I am expected to say a certain vow about my commitment to defending this country. Well, I will do the lip service, but I will not invest my soul into the vow. I am not planning to take up any weapons in order to defend any country, and if this country stops being to my liking, then I will depart without a second thought, just like I did with the country I grew up in, and will never look back. The US may very well become socialist or fascist in the future; why would I want to do anything for such a country? And even if the US becomes paradise in my eyes, I still do not owe anything to this paradise, and this paradise can change into hell at any moment in time, and any commitment I might have to the paradise will be voided.

    All this is a huge mess. "Patriotism is a last refuse of a scoundrel", it is what many people call "virtue signaling" nowadays that has zero substance behind it - and I would extent it to all voluntarily taken commitments of this kind.

    So, if this God came to you and you knew and you had no confusion about who he is and he told you must pray 5 times a day would you do it? @RickeyD



  • RickeyDRickeyD 901 Pts   -  
    @ZeusAres42 ; My Lord has already taught me how and when to pray...

  • Ok, just humor me and IMAGINE this God came to you and asked you to pray 5 times a day would you do it? You understand what hypothetical means right?



  • @RickeyD Are you scared of answering my questions? Is that why you are avoiding them? Perhaps your faith is not that strong in God after all? Otherwise, what is the issue? If your faith in God is untouchable, and cannot be broken then why so hard to just humor me and answer my questions?



  • BarnardotBarnardot 157 Pts   -  
    @ZeusAres42 well you know why he was voiding your questions because he got banned so like I said he didn’t get his moms milk when he was young which made him make up for it and start squirting all that religion dog mess all the time and that’s where it got him just saying.
