Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

SAT Drops Scoring System, Will Award All Students Participation Trophies

Recommended Posts

  I think the SAT is unfair. It only tests English and Math (Algebra).

 The Math mostly ignores addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.

 US History is ignored. World History is ignored. General Science is ignored. 

Other fields of knowledge are ignored.

 

 

 So in my case I am not very good in both English and Algebra but I am excellent in US History (specific dates, places, policies, people, the order of all the US presidents, wars, etc.). Furthermore, I know people who are quite good at Algebra and Geometry, but when we go shopping together they oftentimes ask me to calculate costs for them very quickly in a variety of scenarios because they know I am very fast (and quite accurate) at doing so. And yet they would have much higher scores than me on the SAT. How is that fair? They come out as "smart" but I come out at best as "mediocre".
