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.

Making peace with Jesus.

I heard that even though you give your life to Jesus, and you still like the world, you can not be saved. The only way to be saved is to give up everything. How do I 'give up everything'? Do I give up my apartment too and live in the woods? How do I 'give up everything?'

Who is feeding you this BS? Jesus never said everyone had to give up everything to follow him, he only said that if we love this world and all its trappings more than we love him then we would not find eternal life in him.

Well all I can tell you brother, is do not believe everything that people tell you, instead test the spirit behind the message. And the internet is full of false prophets and rubbish!

The wuoted passage was specific to a young man who had made his possessions his personal god. So if you suffer with the same issue then you need to ask God if He wants you to dispose of all you own to follow Him, but if not then you canrely on all of the rest of the gospels and epistles for guidance about giving and stewardship.
