Q. 29. What are the punishments of sin in the world to come?
A. The punishments of sin in the world to come, are everlasting separation from the comfortable presence of God, and most grievous torments in soul and body, without intermission, in hellfire forever.

This debate will come to order.

Regarding rules and style for this face-to-face encounter, we will be complying with the Canadian National Debate Format. The resolution before us today is “The punishments of sin in the world to come, are everlasting separation from the comfortable presence of God, and most grievous torments in soul and body, without intermission, in hellfire forever.

Representing the Proposition are its First Speaker, Jesus the Messiah and its Second
Speaker, the Holy Spirit of God.

Representing the Opposition are Annihilationist, Universalist, and Hell-on-Earthist.

The House sincerely welcomes all participants and spectators.

Each team will deliver a brief, constructive speech. After each speech, I will call upon the next team. Heckling is prohibited, and there will be no Points of Order or Privilege. Are there any questions regarding the rules? No? Okay, here we go.

I now call upon the First and Second Speakers to introduce the Proposition case.

And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell,to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched. --- Mark 9:43-48

Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels”... And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. -- Matthew 25:41, 46

And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshippers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name. --- Revelation 14:11

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. --- John 3:36

They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might --- 2 Thessalonians 1:9

I thank the members for their remarks. We shall now hear the first speaker for the Opposition. Who would like to be the first to constructively challenge the representatives of the Proposition?














Anyone?
