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.

No matter what one may think of this (I haven't seen the whole thing ) Total Depravity is a reality. Couple that with Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement , Irresistible  Grace and Perseverance of the Saints and that's Calvinism ! How can anyone say any different !!          M

Some churches teach that we are not totally depraved, that we retained some of God's goodness that He imputed to Adam and Eve prior to the fall and even though mankind fell, we didn't fall so low that all of His goodness in us was erased.  We are basically good people with a few minor faults and all we need to do is "fan the flames in our souls" and God will be revived within us. They will also say "we are the captain's of our souls. If we want to get saved we can, or if we decide we don't want to get saved we will not."  As for me, I will quote Al on the TV sitcom Home Improvement, "I don't think so Tim."
