Doctrine Debates Made Easy

Each week two Christian writers with opposing perspectives are invited to participate in an exchange on a controversial Biblical topic. The purpose is to provide a platform where these doctrines are debated and explained simply enough, so that even the layman can understand them. 

The debate structure will be as follows:

•             Opening Cases

•             First Rebuttal

•             Second Rebuttal

•             Final Rebuttal

•             Concluding Remarks

Each debate will focus in on subjects such as Covenant Theology, Dispensationalism, Spiritual gifts, Baptism, Bible prophecy, Eschatology etc… Check back each week for new and exciting debates. We want to hear your views so at the end of the series we'll give you the opportunity to do so.
