34 Scriptures on Debating
This will be a touchy subject for most, as there are so many people even preachers and teachers and those who are to know what the bible says.... should know "IT'S A SIN TO HAVE DEBATES."
Yep, it sure is. I've known this for a long time. I see people on Facebook allot going back and forth about something, about this person or that subject, that preacher etc. What you need to be aware of.......allot of people think you are silly!!!
Debating , does not accomplish a thing... all it does is cause frustrations and anger and not to mention making the people look like they have no sense of value for the debate and sin.
Debating, only causes strife between you and other's, and God sure isn't pleased with ya! We are to carry ourselves like Jesus did, we are to be open and honest about the Bible and Him and what we should do and act, but we are
NOT to cause Debates about it.
It's just down right silly and childish really. It's like fighting over a toy or a stuffed teddy bear, come on, it's time to grow up and stop pushing people away from God and Bring them in....that's our job, it's not
Debating because someone fails to actually take heed in what someone says or shows proof of.
The best thing to do, is just stay out of it!!!! Plain and simple, short to the point!
I have listed several verses on the
Debating subject and I hope and pray that they shed some light on the subject and you will warn other's that it is a sin and all they are doing is stooping down to the other person's level. Also, not to mention they are sinning, they need to be showing the scriptures in the Bible on Debating, maybe they can see for themselves "Uh hey Uh did you know that by debating this subject, we are sinning, I think uh we need to quit, uh ya think?"
Titus 3:9 KJV But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Isaiah 58:4-10 KJV
4 5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? 6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward. 9 10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
1 Timothy 3:10 KJV
Reject False Doctrines
3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
Contentment in Godliness
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
1 Peter 3:15-16 ESV

I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.
