Christian Fellowship Community Forums

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.

  • POLL QUESTION: How do you interpret the Bible?

    There are apparently a number of different ways of approaching and understanding Scripture represented on these forums as was as amongst Protestants in the wider world. Sometimes we see eye to eye other times we might disagree passionately and perhaps this is partly do to the various ways in which we understand and interpret Scripture.   How do you interpret the Bible?   If you have the time and do not mind please take part in this poll.  (I believe it is possible to vot

    Another Look At Romans 11:26

    Another Look At Romans 11: 26   και ουτως πας ισραηλ σωθησεται καθως γεγραπται ηξει εκ σιων ο ρυομενος και αποστρεψει ασεβειας απο ιακωβ "And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: " Focus on "και ουτως πας ισραηλ σωθησεται" "And in this way all Israel shall be saved."

    Translation of Gen. 1:1

    We are all aware of the traditional translation of Gen. 1:1 (i.e. "in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth").  By far that wording is used\followed by the majority of translations.   However there is another possibility.   "In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth" (NRSV)  "In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth—" (NAB) "When God began to create heaven and earth—" (JPS)   Calvin states: "Moses simply

    Poll Question: Creationism, OEC or YEC?

    OEC = old earth creationism YEC = young earth creationism   Which view do you hold: old earth creationism or young earth creationism? This poll is not about evolution. Old earth creationism does not necessarily endorse or even imply evolution. We will save that question for another poll.   Tell us what you think and why.

    Denying Ourselves.

    The first main issue with Christians is that we don't deny themselves for God, this would explain why most of us are so confused.

We tend to get sucked into communities of the World which teaches us ways contrary to the scriptures. We have heard that we cannot serve two masters, so what makes us not heed this message? Remember, others can pull us away from God inadvertently, so we
