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.

    Can God Not Be

    Paul, in his epistle to the Romans talked of a group of people that were witnesses of God’s very existence but denied a fellowship with Him. He claimed they even worked against God’s truth.   Rom. 1:18-23 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal powe

    I never buy national newspapers

    So far as I can remember, I have not bought a national newspaper since the spring of 2007.  It was The Daily Express.   I read newspapers online if I can do so without paying, and I often read The Metro - a free weekdays-only newspaper in the UK.   Although I often enjoy reading them, national newspapers are not our friends.  They serve another deity.   I would like to buy a national newspaper which does not belittle the word of God.  I would like to buy a national

    Nicene Creed and Apostles Creed

    I am studding creeds and found it interesting the Reformed Church has both creeds. My question is whey is the Nicene Creed preferred to more over the Apostles' Creed? I see the Apostles' is shorter, perhaps is this the reason?

    Falling away?

    What does the Bible teach about falling away from the faith?  Can it happen?  If you do, were you never really saved in the first place?  And if that's the case, how can you know you're saved now?
