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.

Atheist Arguments Slipping into Christian Arguments

Recommended Posts

I thought this was a really clever counter argument of seeing part of an elephant to explain that all religions believe in the same God. Which simply isn't right at all because all 'gods' have different beliefs and expectations if people actually learned about other religions. I like his clarity and how he explains where this nonsense came from.

"That means that somebody has to know about the existence of the sign (elephant) in the first place". Well this seems to be where the argument lies, but I have to admit, I was a little confused about the whole thing. I have heard people talking about the elephant thing before but I kind of just wrote it off as something people say, but I did not know that it was something like this. Also, is it just me, or is this guy the lawyer from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. If not, he looks almost identical. Anyways, this was very interesting to think about, so thank you for sharing it with us.
