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.

    • Calvinism vs Free WIll

      I don't believe in Calvanism, because the verses referring to predestination in the Bible are not referring to salvation, but rather the idea that God can do what he wants, assuming it isn't contradicting his just and loving nature. However, obviously, Calvanism does contradict God's nature.   It makes a literal joke of free will, obedience, and justice. How can one be condemned to hell, knowing his/her own actions did not send him/her there? Normally Calvanists have some weird story to expla

    • Beware Theological Dangers on Both Left and Right

      Paul charges Timothy to “guard the good deposit” (2 Tim. 1:14), which is the gospel of Jesus Christ. We’re to remain vigilant in guarding the gospel because both the Scriptures and also church history remind us that many have swerved from the truth. Even a cursory reading of the New Testament reveals that upholding the truth and the purity of the gospel has been a challenge from the beginning. We aren’t facing anything new in our day, and we have the promise that the church of Jesus Christ will

    • Theological Education Matters in Church Planting

      The purpose of theological training is not for more people to put an “MDiv” on the wall. We’re not after pedigree enhancement.
