.... 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.

New Arms Race

Recommended Posts

Many countries are lately allocating a lot of money for their millitary upgrades. Many claim that they are doing so to combat terrorism, which is not true. Lately Australia ordered for a submarine that is worth billions of dollars for its navy. I just look at it as a new race where countries are competing to obtain new sophisticated weapons and defence systems. Whether this is the right way or not, we need to give God a chance to make our world a better place to live.

The world will never become a better place to live until Jesus returns to set up his kingdom here. Until that happens each country must be prepared to defend itself.

This is just the latest chapter in an ongoing arms race, which has been going since people started to want to take things from other people. The periods in which we see the biggest advancements is war-time. Of course the arms race did not only find new and more efficient ways to kill people, but it also facilitated advancements in other areas. For example, in WWII the Germans found more innovative ways to build fighter plans. After the war they used that expertise to start building better cars.

 

The ongoing arms race has forced huge developments in plenty of areas, including medicine.

So? Nations have the right to defend themselves.

There are fears that the third world war is on the horizon. Whether there'll be war any time soon or not, eventually all the man made weapons that have been made for defending nations will be of no use when antichrist takes his throne and starts ruling the world. Fear not war. Our worst enemy and those working for him are always with us. Weapons can defend you against a human aggressor but who can defend you against the devil whose desire to drag you to hell? Only Jesus will and what does He say? "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. SEE THAT YOU ARE NOT ALARMED, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.
