CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy.
If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
Arguments with the highest score are displayed first.
Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument.
To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
To vote for an argument, use these icons:
You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument.
Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change.
Yes, you can change your vote.
Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account.
All scores are updated in real-time.

When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument.
If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
Many many many many Christians believe the NT wipes out the OT. Guess it depends on the Christian, but regardless, in many ways it could be argued that God created Satan, a Yin and Yang type of thing. Perhaps even in spirituality there must be balance.
No. Most Christians believe Satan is a separate entity completely. He was an angel that didn't like the role he had, aspired to be God and plotted to overthrow the Almighty, because of that he was thrown out of Heaven and became a fallen one, or fallen angel.

They are both two halves of the same book which is the basis for Christianity. You can't just dump one half and still call yourself a Christian, specifically because the New Testament itself asserts the Old Testament to be true. The New Testament is an extension of the same myths and logic found in the Old Testament.
One can call themselves Christian and only follow part of the book, just as one can call themselves Christian and not believe in the book. Worse yet are those who call themselves Christian and follow neither the book or the teachings of Christ and God. The bible isn't the only basis for Christianity, it's a book on it yes, but in many ways much of the culture and traditions that are celebrated as Christian in fact have been borrowed from other religions and beliefs, so one could say the roots of Christianity are older then the bible.
