Can you ever win a debate with a religious person?

Even if you discuss the evidence against their beliefs, will they always refer to 'faith'?

We don't always have to win, a compromise is good enough If we can just agree to disagree

it's a battle for souls. People who are fighting against God are pawns of the devil and fighting against their own lives, not realizing they are propelling themselves into the fire of Hell.

If you want compromise, then stay out of the battle. If you join the battle, you will be hated. Jesus promised the world would hate us if we follow Him, the same as they hated Him. People generally hate the truth, and Jesus compels His disciples to tell the truth. The truth will make you free.

Also, Jesus said He would cause divisions....if you follow Him but the people in your family do not, He is going to be a barrier to them. They will love the old you who never believed on Jesus and reject you as a disciple. If you compromise, you are compromising against your Savior, and the salt has lost its savor.

Any debate you want but what really upsets you on the Left is a lot of people believe in their faith and that is something you just can't change.

What upsets people on the left is the person believing their faith should affect the lives of others. A religious person can have whatever personal beliefs they want.

You want your faith to affect the lives of others so they agree with you. You are a hypocrite to say it is wrong for Christians to desire others to know God the same as they do.

You want others to agree with you for the mutual enjoyment of whatever your pet sin is at any given moment, even if it's doing nothing obviously wrong but lifting yourself up in pride to enjoy being free from Hell now and believing you always will be. You want your faith to affect the lives of others so they can stroke your ego.

Believe it or not, there are MANY religious people on the left, always has been. The churches, etc. are full of them every day. African Americans, as a whole, are more devout than most of the "righty-whiteys", and most are "lefties"! I don't know where the idea that most Christians are conservatives came from, just most of the RADICAL ones are conservative.

I know the Truth. You can't win against the truth. I live in reality, I do not believe in or practice religion.

The old me, trapped in this body of death, is still a sinner and you can find fault with me the same as I can find fault with you. I guess claiming that Jesus is in me changing me to be perfect like Him, commanding me to be perfect like Him even while my body of death pulls me for sin the same as you, believing His is my life and I have a new life from God......I guess that makes me a hypocrite. It's better to be a new creation in Christ admitting my faults and sins that it is to be consistently nothing but a sinner with no hypocrisy because you are purely evil with no pretense of goodness.

You are not much of a thinker for somebody who claims to be a thinker. I think your claim to be a thinker is your hypocrisy. Resorting to cheap insults proves you don't like to think.

How can atheism be growing when it leads to death? I may be spreading like cancer, but if you call that growing....well, ok. I get the drift of your meaning.

People watch too much tv and believe way too many lies put forward by people who pretend to be authoritative with degrees or accomplishments.

People simply want to believe they have the right to exist outside of the fire of Hell. That is easier than admitting the truth regarding the ugliness of the things we have said, done, thought, and imagined....in every moment of time in our personal history, and our natural tendency to do more of the same. It seems easier to hide from the truth than to admit it, but it really is better and easier living when you know you are forgiven.

You can't win a debate when you are arguing against the Judge who knows He is right and knows you are wrong. There is no winning argument against God, there is no counsel that wins against God...the best you can do is insure your own death when you are arguing against God. You can't displace God from life, you can only deny yourself from life by being against God.

A person like myself who knows Jesus Christ is God who took our place in death to pay for our sins so we can be forgiven in His resurrection, and knows He is risen from the dead and is alive forever more, and knows their sins are forgiven and they are going to heaven has nothing that can be shattered other than their bodies. Many Muslims are turning away from their sin in realization of the saving power of the resurrected Son of God, God incarnate, God the Man, Jesus Christ.

He conquered death. There is no other real and unshakable hope. A Muslims faith may be unshakable and the idiot might really believe that if he blows himself to smitherines murdering people with a bomb in his mouth saying "God's name is Allah" with a big fart BANG!!, he gets to go to heaven as a martyr for God but that is obviously insane.

It is your faith that needs to be shattered. You are believing that you have the right to exist outside of the fire of Hell. You need a wake up call before you wake up in Hell. I hope God gives you enough time to come to your senses before you finalize your death saying you are good to go.

Many Christians are turning away from Christianity because it is just as stupid as Islam. What's your point?

What you consider obviously insane just so happens to be everything you don't believe in. Hmm. Weird.

It is your faith that needs to be shattered.

You are the one with faith, not Atheists.

You are believing that you have the right to exist outside of the fire of Hell.

The fire of hell doesn't exist.

You need a wake up call before you wake up in Hell.

You need a wake up call before you find you have wasted your only life.

I hope God gives you enough time to come to your senses before you finalize your death saying you are good to go.

I hope you make a good impact on this Earth before you go.

When debating with atheist, I like to start by pointing out that their very existence shows God is God, and their death proves He rules over them. An atheist will not listen to Bible quotes. If you can't bring an atheist to the point of fearing God's right to rule over them in death, the atheist will never be saved, and Hell will be their home forever.

Hell justifies the existence of Atheists, God is justified by Himself with or without the existence of Atheists. God chose to allow them to exist, and Hell justifies their existence being against God...or "having no god-belief" or whatever way they want to say it which can only be justified by everlasting consuming confinement in the fire of Hell.

There is no scientific proof that the Bible is wrong. All of your "proofs" are debatable, but you insist they are unquestionable because you want to believe God has no right to rule over you in death....which means you want to believe you have the right to exist outside of Hell forever.

There is no scientific proof that the Bible is right. I could say the same about unicorns, there is no proof for their existence or non-existence. Stop saying that there's 'no proof' that the Bible's wrong, you are just trying to keep a grip on your religion because you know you are wrong.
