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.

  • Help with the concept of "feared God"

    Hello everyone, I was doing some reading of the scriptures in Exodus 1:15-21. The saying "feared God" came up and it really got my attention. It should be a simple concept to understand, but I really feel like I need help understanding it. I know proverbs 1:7a states "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge," yeah I feel very dense to really grasp what that fear means or looks like.  I seen there are some really smart people here. Like to ask for any help on the subject plea

    Proofs that sinning believers will not inherit or enter heaven

    The Kingdom of heaven is headed by Jesus Christ for the purpose of re-establishing the Kingdom of God over this rebellious part of God’s realm. It is a dispensational term referring to Messiah’s Kingdom on earth. The parables of the Kingdom apply to this age. At the end of this age, Christ will come and set up a literal earthly Kingdom forever. (from the famous “Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible”)   The parables of the hidden treasure (Matt 13:44) and the pearl of great price (Matt 13:

    Please help convince me to not convert to Catholicism...

    Hi, my name is James. I hope this is an appropriate use of the forum and not in violation of any etiquette or rules. If not, I apologize. I'm posting to a few different forums in the hope/prayer that people will share with others and help me in my journey as I navigate some questions I have about Protestantism v. Catholicism. I'm hoping to pursue that journey here:   https://inlimbosite.wordpress.com/   Grace and Peace, James

    Salvation without The Trinity? How?

    For any non Trinitarians that might come across this I have a couple questions that I was curious to see how you would anwser.   If Jesus is not God, how can his sacrifice attome for the sins of all the elect? That would be one sinless life of a mere mortal, which can only purchase the redemption of one other life.   If Jesus is not God, why did Jesus not have to spend eternity in Hell to pay for our sins?    Hope to hear some good answers soon.   Stay ble
