Total Depravity - 2004 Debate

Because of the loss of the forums at Reaching For Christ (where I used to do 99% of my posting), due to lack of time and funds of everyone involved, a lengthy debate between myself, Mark Ennis and two Church of Christ elders was lost except for at the Church of Christ website. I'm going to post the debate here, in entirety for others to read/use.

I hope this is edifying for everyone.

: The scriptures teach total (hereditary) depravity

Affirming: Mark Ennis (aka MarkE) and Micah Burke

Denying: Kieran Murphy (aka Papasmurph) and Steve Kearney.

On the due date each paper will be submitted ...

Round 1 - Opening statements by Micah and Kieran - 2000 word limit due April 2, 2004

Round 2 - Rebuttal Statements by Mark and Steve - 1500 word limit due April 16, 2004
