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.

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.

True faith...

Recommended Posts

Seen a brother arrive at church, a few weeks ago. He had been previously hospitalized and fed through a tube. He was at church, on a ambulance gurney and laid in the back, so he could hear the sermon and be close to his brothers and sisters in Christ. Never quite witnessed anything like it. We were saying prayers for him, on the prayer list. It just showed remarkable faith. I got to thinking on his faith and thought how God answered our prayers also. Well see, the brother was on a gurney, but graduated to a wheelchair, and now a walker. So God really answered prayers. Faith set him free.

Charles,Fantastic post!

 

find this mans determination to be part of his church and close to his church family stunning. I can't imagine the effort it took to arrange for him to be there. This was his open statement of faith, that God was going to heal him, or the church was going to have to help him stay involved. I applaud his fortitude and the churches willingness to keep him within the body regardless of what condition he was in or how he got there. This mans faith is extraordinary!
