    God is love. Endless hostile debating about your God beliefs is the opposite of love. So all you God believers who believe in debating?

    (edited to add the following)
    In case it isn’t obvious to everyone, I meant for this to be a parody of these threads:
    Faith in no God
    If you believe in love, you believe in God

    Love takes many forms.
    A parent’s anger may be love.
    Hard discipline may be love.
    Love isn’t all fluffy and pink.

    Pro 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

    seems that way unless convenient and non hostile

    Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    being a member for over a decade or so i imagine the debates would see seem endless

    I'm not quite sure how you plan to fight against then if your own house is not in order. Why will others take you seriously?

    If god is love and we love debating, then debating is a form if worship and ritual. That means god is also the persuit of knowledge and truth. Ironically, believing that one already has "The Truth" is sacrilege.

    That effectively takes Jesus out of the picture.

    John 8 where Jesus debates with the Pharisees.

    Likely the rest of the Bible's narrative as well.

    Proverbs 25:9

    You might have misunderstood what I’m denouncing, and why, and how I think it might change.
