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.

I don't know about you all, but I call mine "Bubba". I find them on the outer walls of the house all the time and I will try to catch one and bring it inside to eat bugs on my houseplants. Some of them get busy and do their job, while others just wander the walls and ceilings and drive my cat crazy. I keep wondering if the confused ones are male and the hungry ones are female...or maybe it's the other way around. I will grab him off the wall and give him a lecture. "Now listen here, Bubba... I invited you in for dinner, not for snooping around. Lunch is over there on my begonia. Get busy." If he still can't find food, out he goes into the wild again. It might sound gross to some, but these guys (and gals) are the best houseplant debugging systems I've ever seen. LOL.

 

No, not really. I'm just being silly here, but one time I did find a ladybug in my home and a houseplant that had been suffering from a bad case of buggies was clean again. While I didn't exactly see it happen, I credit the ladybug for that one.
