One of the primary advantages of Debian is its central repository with thousands of software packages. If you're coming to Debian from another operating system, you might be used to installing software that you find on random websites. On Debian installing software from random websites is bad

In the case of Debian, add additional repo's outside of Debian's own repo's and you create a FrankenDebian. Repo's typically have direct access to your root. In Alpine's case its insecure transport of packages that potentially enables a man-in-middle injection of malicious code/activity. In contrast run a DebianDog for instance and you're handing out your systems root access on a platter.
