Are religious debates online ever productive?


Or is it just two people screaming at their screens most of the time?

    "Your opinion" is what it is for the Word of God says in I Pet 3:15 "...be ready ALWAYS to give an answer to EVERY MAN that asketh you (responses to questions (asking) on HubPages) a reason of the HOPE that is in you..."

    I agree, but could it be productive in any other ways. Is venting, is screaming against something you disagree with maybe, therapeutic?

    Thanks for your answer and your view of it. I think the internet may be the one place where communication can become a bad thing.

    ".. an agnostic or atheist has already gone through that process, there is not a structure to crack - it's already been disolved." Wonder how they'll feel on dying bed when no more "self effort" but spirit involved;leaving, going where?

    In FULL agreement! My tolerance and continued patience is getting a bit thin.

    There's NOTHING "Correct" but the Word of GOD (Num 23:19)! Otherwise, Logic & Reasoning (Prov 3:5)!

    I appreciate your very astute reply & commend your honesty & rational thoughts. I have a dear friend who is a "fanatical" Christian who thought he HAD to preach to everyone. People "stay away" from him. Now he has no humans to preach to. Oh w

    I like the way you look at it. I too like having someone to make me question my own thoughts. It's productive sometimes. Thanks for the answer.

    Agreed: "...maturity...of the debaters involved." This is a "Spiritual" journey folks & anything else is "self effort" = "immaturity!" (Prov 3:5) "Lean NOT to YOUR OWN "understanding" rather move to spiritual things for "maturity!"

    Holy Spirit uses "people" to teach His Word! If one tells 1 something, & they are a believer, it's their position to "search the Scriptures to see if these thgs are so" Acts 17:11! Just telling! No one HAS to chg!

    Mostly non productive yet hard to escape for many of us. Weird how that works. We all want our opinions heard I guess.

    In what way was he productive? What did his constant speeches against every religion other than his own accomplish? In what I have read about him he seems no different than evangelical Christians shouting through the TV. Maybe I am missing something?

    Your icon Levi Legion is dark and hooded, but your thoughts are bright and shining. "A person who breaks free of religion will do so because they are looking for something more...something real" - Very insightful.

    Not Truth! II Tim 3:16 "All Scripture is given by insp of GOD, and is PROFITABLE ... FOR REPROOF, FOR CORR, FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS." How can 1 "prove, correct, r instruct w/o "debating?" GOD'S WORD WILL WIN!
