Moderator Note - Overlapping Debates Warning

J.C. Thibodaux has graciously offered to debate the following resolution:

Resolution: Resolved that doctrine which teaches that genuine Christians cannot end up in hell due to unfaithfulness to God cannot be soundly reconciled with Matthew 5:27-30, Hebrews 4:9-11, and Revelation 22:18-19.

4. Negative Cross-Examination of Affirmative (5 questions).
(Affirmative answers)
5. Negative rebuttal essay.
6. Affirmative rebuttal essay.
7. Negative conclusion essay.
8. Affirmative conclusion essay.

JCT will be taking the affirmative role, and I will be taking the negative role. For labeling purposes I have identified this debate as the "Genuine Christian Apostasy" debate.

I apologize to those readers whose reading of the overlapping Sola Scriptura debate will be interrupted by this debate, which I hope will be a much shorter project - both in terms of length of the essays, as well as the overall duration of the debate.
