Division
Join to comment
Since Thursday, no new creations have been added to this group. Meanwhile, there have been about a dozen comments in debates. Additionally, there has been one non-debate, non-LEGO topic... which was then locked.
I undertand the logic of locking the topic. It had nothing to do with LEGOs, so it was locked, because moderators and administrators are responible for keeping conversations relevent to the whole point of MOCpages, LEGOs. Why, then, do you allow the debates to continue? 1 Corinthians 1:10 says this: "I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought." Yet this, a Christian group, still supports debates, while looking down upon less divisive conversations. Why do we allow the division to continue if we will not allow peaceful conversations to last?

By the way, I just found about this, the CFOL debate group: http://mocpages.com/group.php/3024
There's plenty of room there to debate until your fingers fall off, and since it's designated as a debate group, there's no grounds for people to go there and complain about you debating so much like there is here. Perhaps we should move all of our debating there.

Debate does not mean anger, hatred, or dislike of each other. We definately will not agree unless we debate, but we probably will not come to a conclusion anyway, so why not?

Well, as you can see there's a more recent development with my discovery of the CFOL debate group. CFOLs that wish to debate can go and debate there instead of here, and not have to listen to me complain about them debating.

Why are you complaining about the debates anyway? If you don't like them, then just ignore them.

That's the problem: every single debate post shows up in my 'activities' list, preventing me from seeing things I'm actually interested in. Furthermore, I don't want to leave this group because I like to be around other Christians. I'm certain that moving the debates to their designated groups will be beneficial to all.

I don't know what to say to that... You Win. Let's stop debating.

Of coarse, the atheists (who should not be..) in this group are practically begging for debates.

Thanks for talking, it was nice having a chance to talk about this with someone. God be with you, W. Mark.

Well, after some consideration I am leaving this group. I have found other Christian groups that are more focused on God and LEGOs, and less on debates.
God be with you all,
W. Mark.
