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.

Hm. It's complicated. To be sure, as a Virginian, I'm a proud Southerner, but my grandfather was born in East Tennessee, Scott County, which was a Union enclave during the Civil War and two of my ancestors fought on the Federals' side and died in Confederate prison camps as a result. A great grandmother of mine was born in South Louisiana to a Creole family that was heavily invested in slavery before the War and reduced to poverty afterwards. I think those monuments probably have a place in a museum, either indoor or outdoor, but without context, I don't see the usefulness of just having a few statues take up space. That, however, is just my opinion. They were certainly wrong to kick that student out of school. The abuse he endured from hostile crowds and the humiliation of being escorted away by the police should have been punishment enough.
