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.

  • Even Arminians Believe that the Natural Man Has No Free Will

    ...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)   If the natural man has a free will to believe the gospel, then why does he need grace? If his will is naturally free then it would do away

Since 1989 Hanegraaff has been the President of the Christian Research Institute (CRI) and (since ca. 1992) the host of CRI’s Bible Answer Man radio program.[1] Hank, his wife Kathy, and two of their twelve children were inducted by a sacramental rite called chrismation

    The Shema: YHWH encompasses the Lord Jesus (Deuteronomy 6:4; cf. Mark 12:29)

    Many groups who deny the Lord Jesus is God will cite Deuteronomy 6:4 in affirming that there is only one God. That there is only one God is true, but this passage in no way proves the Lord Jesus is not God. For the very next passage (Deuteronomy 6:5) teaches that the "only one God" is to be worshiped and since the Lord Jesus is properly worshiped this necessitates that YHWH of Deuteronomy 6:4 encompasses the Lord Jesus. Besides the worship of the Lord Jesus other areas such as certain appellat

    What Does Our Work Accomplish?

    What in your opinion then was the result of Paul's missionary work if it wasn’t leading souls to Christ? I’d say as a result of Paul’s missionary work people were hearing the good news and accepting Christ and getting saved.
