10.  Debate: "Are There Many Paths to God?"

The OSU Socratic Club will sponsor a debate on the topic, "Are There Many Paths to God?" on Tuesday, October 26, at 7 p.m. in Gilfillan Auditorium on the OSU campus.  Religious people today are divided into exclusivists, who argue for a single approach to God, and pluralists, who maintain that all paths to God are of equal value.  The speakers will offer divergent points of view.  Todd Miles will argue that Jesus' claim to be the Son of God, which is the foundational belief of Christianity, provides a unique path to God.  Frodo Okulam will maintain that there are many ways to apprehend the divine, of which Christianity is only one.  The debate is free and open to the public.

 

The Socratic Club is beginning its ninth year as a student organization at OSU. The Club is modeled on the original Socratic Club, which was founded at Oxford University in 1941, with C. S. Lewis serving as President. At OSU it offers a forum for opposing points of view on subjects of contemporary debate at the intersection of Christian belief and contemporary culture. Each speaker presents one side of an issue, after which the two query each other regarding their differences before the floor is opened to questions from members of the audience. Two events are planned for each quarter. For more information visit the OSU Socratic Club online at http://oregonstate.edu/groups/socratic/
