To Prove Debating Is Worthless, We Will Have To Cut These Verses Out Of Our Bible

Darrell Clark said on Facebook on 9-8-2018 – “Public debates solve nothing … public debates are worthless.” This kind of comment is typical of most Christians, and supports the fact that most Christians determine right and wrong by what they think is best or by what other Christians around them think, instead of by what God thinks as revealed by His scriptures. According to Darrell’s thinking, I guess Jesus and Paul wasted a lot of time debating. If we say religious debates are not approved of God, or do no good, or we just don’t like them, following are some of the verses we will have to cut out of our Bible:

· For he vigorously refuted the Jews in public debate Acts 18:28 NIV

· And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God Acts 19:8

· he (Paul) departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus. And this continued by the space of two years Acts 19:9-10

· This brought Paul and Barnabas into sharp dispute and debate with them Acts 15:2 NIV

· And after there had been much debate Acts 15:7 ESV

· he (Paul) … disputed against the Grecians Acts 9:29

· Then there arose certain of the synagogue … disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake Acts 6:9-10

· Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him Acts 17:17

· A group of Epicurean and Stoic philosophers began to debate with him (Paul) Acts 17:18 NIV

· And he came to Ephesus, and there he left them; and he went into the synagogue, and disputed with Jews Acts 18:19 (Wycliffe)

· I am set for the defence of the gospel Philippians 1:17

· that ye should earnestly contend for the faith Jude 3

· Debate thy cause with thy neighbour Proverbs 25:9

· They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them Proverbs 28:4

· One of the teachers of the law came and heard them (Jesus) debating Mark 12:28 NIV
