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.
William

I don't understand how fiction can be false teaching.I do believe promoting it as a Christian guide is false teaching, which is not the fault of the author, that is the fault of the teachers. It's wonderful story and I loved it.

Fiction is an incredibly powerful method of conveying a message - ie teaching! Think for examples of Jesus parables - they were fiction! A story with a message is a powerful tool and it becomes even more powerful in a modern age where people are not taught discernment but simply accept what they read.

You are so right there. I believe we need to inform our youngsters about the spiritual warfare that is being waged against God's truths. They need the discernment to know what not to allow into children's entertainment activities. Stuff will get by us, but we should speak up and share what we think about a particular venue.
