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.

Circuit Assemblies, Theocratic, Kingdom hall and many more that are part of JW theology are not found or even implied in the Bible. See how it easy it is to turn that around.

 

Moreover the idea that terms not found in the Bible cannot be used to descript certain concepts and ideas is simply stupid. The words omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent are not found in the Bible but the concepts are.

Languages evolve and each generation comes up with new ones that allow us to further describe complex concepts. Even if the words weren't used in the Bible doesn't mean the concept wasn't, like Origen has said. The trinity concisely describe the three partnership of God, Holy Spirit, and Jesus. God-the-Son shows that Jesus is God in human form. Though I'm not sure about incarnation, I thought that was an Eastern concept so I don't expect it to be in the bible. First, second, and third person of the Trinity is simply to separate the aspects and break down complex concepts into smaller bite sized one.

The word bible is also not included in Scripture.

And the JW's, New World Translation's, little additions and subtractions, like we find in John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was [a] God", were never written in the text to begin with, and they are certainly not "implied" :confused: Just to be clear about John 1:1, here's how it 'is' written:

 

 

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
was
God" ~John 1:1

 

 

In Christ,

David
