Question:Why Don’t You Engage Others In An Open Platform And Debate Those Who Oppose Your Stance On Specific Issues?
Donald Bohanon. I’m not a professional debater.Many people who engage in public debates have been doing it for years and are professionals at it.It’s actually a profession and or practice that takes time to learn and master.Now if given the time maybe 6 to 12 months to learn and develop those skills I’m confident I can hold my own with anyone in a constructive and logical debating environment.
But one thing I refuse to debate others about are the absolutes established by God and his word.It’s been my experience that those kinds of debates lead nowhere and eventually deteriorate into nonsensical irrational exchanges coming from those who live contrary to the word of God in abominable ways.These individuals refuse to acknowledge the facts as are outlined by God’s word, and honest,ethical,unbiased and reliable science, but would rather engage in deceptive, distorted reasoning,which borders on insanity.
Neither party budges on their stance about the issue which leads to a dead end road and conflict as opposed to resolution.God’s view on an issue should never be argued against by the created human being who really has no clue what’s best and most beneficial for him on a physical and spiritual level.As it relates to physical,spiritual and moral issues,and how those specific behaviors negatively impact those who engage in them and society in general.
And who are in many respects governed by lust, greed and pride.Which are the foundation which fuel and form their destructive and irrational viewpoints.God simply knows best and has mankind’s best interest in mind.
And because of it will never alter the definition of the obvious and established order, knowing how destructive those actions can and will be.Because he is governed by Godly wisdom and true love and concern for mankind as a whole,and not by lust,greed and pride,which are the motivations of these individuals and are the antithesis of love..
All of which blind you and distort your reasoning.God even informs us in his word that these kinds of individuals are full of debate, based on deceit, which is a major part of the deception that’s being promoted disguised as logical debate…Romans 1:29-32..
You can never have a logical debate when one party is arguing from an irrational,untruthful and or false position.In other words,deceitful debating,which simply means presenting an argument based on lies and untruths as opposed to truth and facts as God defines it,is what they’re doing.
King James Version (KJV)
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
I maybe be willing, at some point, to debate about other issues but not in relation to whether these things are wrong or not.God’s word has already established that as absolute fact,as well as the destructive impact these behaviors have individually and collectively on self and society.Something that’s also supported by honest,ethical,reliable science.
I have found that arguing with someone who is given over to the distorted reasoning that self destructive behavior is in fact beneficial,arguing with individuals who are committed to being governed and led by their lust,greed and pride,is a waste of time.
I will state my case based on the facts as they are outlined by God and his word and reliable,ethical and honest science,which supports that truth.As opposed to doctored,flawed,biased,fake,error filled,deceptive science, designed primarily as way to sway and influence public opinion and advance an evil agenda.
But I refuse to be drawn into dead end debate with a dishonest individual who’s reasoning is based on lust and greed as opposed to what’s really beneficial for self and society.I refuse to engage in continuous debate with with those who think they are wiser and more knowledgeable than almighty God himself.
