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.

Josiah's in the House

Recommended Posts

Josiah here....


I'm 29 (well, in a few days). I have a Ph.D. in physics and work with a mostly engineering firm. I've been married about a year and a half now. I was raised Catholic but converted to Lutheranism (my parish belongs to the LCMS). I have many interests, one being theology and I come to sites like this for theological discussions. My goal is not to convert or convince (I don't have the ego for that) but I do like to learn and perhaps I can contribute to understanding among others in return - if only to share a perspective (Lutheran) often missing at sites.


I'm active at another site (and will be staying there) but I'm curious to see what activity can be found here.... and what the discussions here are like. Curious if this is a community where I can learn and contribute to learning.

Josiah, I have a grandson by that name, its one of my favorite Old testament Kings. You have been ambitious, to have a Ph.D at 29, so I say congratulations! I was 37 years old((1983) and was married with four children when I started college. I finally finished with two Master degrees in 1991. My degrees were In Theology and Pastoral Counseling & Care. I do understand how hard education is and what it takes.


I look forward to talking with you.
