Debate is like doctrines of men. The Word debate only appears in the Bible 4 times...

Pro 25:9 Debate thy cause with thy neighbor [himself]; and discover not a secret to another: 10 Lest he that heareth [it] put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away. 11 A word fitly spoken [is like] apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Isa 27:8 In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.

Isa 58:4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as [ye do this] day, to make your voice to be heard on high.

Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The WORD is a two-edged SWORD...be careful that you know how to use it. Or you might get cut asunder....

Hbr 4:12 For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

I have said it long and hard...that the word of God is that which we must be centred upon. But that must come with a recognition that that same word can be used to build up and to destroy. Destruction comes from a religious spirit. The world is not our enemy. Religion is the enemy. It is the world's enemy. It is what has kept the world from acknowledging Christ. Religion is the enemy within, because it is couched in "seemings." that make it appear right and correct and true, but it is inversely proportional to real truth..."Yea hath God said?"

I agree...this is why we do not debate...because it leads to destruction of the WORD.

It leads to destruction of the understanding of the word but it is in essence destructive to the hearers, for it undermines their faith....

A man that says there is no GOD, is nothing more than a fool.

Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Proverbs 23:9 Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.

Provebs 26:4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
