General (you can kinda use this in multiple topics): '...you must clothe yourself with compassion and kindness'
Euthanasia and possibly others: 'Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses'
Sexual relationships out of marriage: "Go forth and multiply" (can also be used against contraception)
Marriage: 'a man shall leave his mother and father to unite with his wife, they will become one flesh' (procreative aspect of marriage)
Adultery: 'Do not commit adultery' or 'God wants you to be holy and free from sexual immorality'
Drugs, adultery and stuff like that: '...Don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit...'
Equality/ argument against wars, etc: '...love your neighbour as you love yourself'
Equality, the argument against racism: '...you are all one in Jesus Christ'
argument for protecting the environment: 'God looked at everything he had made and he was pleased'
Charity: 'If you have material possessions and see a brother or sister in need and have no pity on them, how can the love of God be in you?'
and that's all I can think of at the top of my head lol. There are many, many more but u can probably use these quotes for more than one argument.
