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.

It is my contention that the New Jerusalem will not be physically located on earth, am I wrong and if so, your evidence is?

This appears to be a disturbing trend in your posts. Somehow you are under the false impression that others have to refute your claim without you even giving any evidence. There is simply no need for anyone to refute or reject a view for which you have given zero evidence. Your view is not automatically the correct view. If you have a case, present it. Your stance is "I am correct prove me wrong." You have got it wrong. It ought to be here is the evidence for my view, refute it.

Is this a rule of the group Origen? I clearly stated that it was my contention and asked if I was wrong, Is it unreasonable for anyone to answer, yes you are, or, yes you are, can you provide evidence supporting your contention? Some folks just do not like questions, they are more interested in preaching their sermons, IMO.

No, not a rule but a very telling sign.

Yes you did. The problem is you prefer to address the views of others rather than making a case of your own.

So I have notice lately.

It seems you do not understand English. I said "No." Now I see why you make so many mistakes when reading posts.
