This thread is to bring attention to common topics Christians tend to get addicted to debating, but in doing so are tricked into not proclaiming the good news ...
The debate of various topics, and the research of various topics to debate further, dominate the media coverage of Christians .. so that the good news is not covered.
People are not born again, nor do they come to faith when they lose an argument regarding:
Evolution vs Creationism
Going to hell
It kind of just makes them more resistant to speak with you, and not even for the sake of the good news.
It is important to note that Moralism cannot replace the actual good news of a spiritually transformed life.. so these debates are ultimately meaningless.
Suggestion for application: Much like in the first chapter of acts when Jesus rebuked the apostles for asking about when the nation of Israel will be restored He said to proclaim the good news to the whole world with the Holy Spirit given to them.
Suggested discussion topic: Is it really a waste of time to discuss debate and research the above mentioned subjects?
