Issue and Interchange
The goal of this regular feature is to provide our readers with opposing arguments on topics pertinent to the Christian life. Due to the power of party spirit, personal credibility, credentials, etc., we have asked all the authors writing for this feature to publish their brief statements anonymously. By doing this, we hope to encourage the reader, in some small way, to focus on the arguments involved in each position rather than on personal factors.
The authors selected for the respective sides in the debate have published and/or lectured in defense of their theses.
The burden of proof in the interchange is placed on Advocate One. For that reason, Advocate One opens and closes the debate.
