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.

Thanks.......Amen. I was hoping he would point her to 4 or 5 specific scriptures.

That was well done. The pain in her voice was heartbreaking. I do agree with Winkin he should have used scripture as well.

Very moving. I loved it. Dr. MacArthur did mention Romans 7 directly, and alluded to John 21 and other chapters and verses. Considering the nature of her questions, as well her obvious emotional state, I'm certain that someone from the congregation followed up with her before she left church to make sure any remaining questions she might have had were answered.

My thoughts: If Dr. MacArthur blasted her with the machine gun style Scripture approach she probably would have been more bewildered. If she was Scripturally informed she wouldn't be asking these questions.
