Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian Protestant community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism.

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.

A little testimonies about honest

Recommended Posts

Yesterday afternoon I broke a bottle of red wine when I was working,but nobody knew it.At that time,I was so nervous,because that wine is so expensive,it is worth my two days' salary. Then I made a determination to hide the truth,but my heart was uneasy and accused.Because I'm a Christian.If I'm not honest,God will loathes me.But,if I tell the truth ,perhaps I will pay my two days'salary for it.It is too hard to choose.I prayed to God,"God !May you give me faith and strength to tell the truth,I want to be honest."After prayer,my heart calm down and I was full of faith.At last,I told the truth to my manager,to my surprise ,he not only didn't ask me to pay for the wine,but also he praised me.He said ,"You are the most honest one I have ever seen in this company.In fact,many bottles of red wine were broken,but nobody admits,you are the fist and only one to tell the truth.You are really something!"Heard this ,I thank and praise God from my heart.In this experience,I appreciate that it is the most meaningful to be honest

Thank you for your testimony.

 

Being honest is the right thing, even if not always the practical thing. But, what type of people should we be if the things of this world are fleeting while virtue is eternal?

 

I doubt many employers would make an employee pay for accidental damage. There are significant legal limitations on an employer's ability to collect for damages. There's also consequences for morale for what he employer does. If he charges you, you'd likely become a bit disgruntled. And, all the employees would be signaled that the boss is an exacting man, not one to be liked, and not one to be honest with. It would also cost him a lot more than the cost of a bottle of expensive wine if he fired you or caused you to quit.

 

Anyway, no bottle of wine is worth even two hour's of pay, let alone two days of pay. But, wine can be expensive.
