The recent debate between Ham and Nye has stirred much interest and attention; I did NOT bother watching it and here's why. I found this written by a dear brother, Gregory Metcalf. It is perhaps the best argument against debating I've read. Go here to read the article.
"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan
