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.

John McCain is ending his brain cancer treatment, family says

Recommended Posts


Arizona Sen. John McCain is ending his medical treatment for brain cancer, his family announced Friday.

McCain was diagnosed with aggressive glioblastoma last summer and had been undergoing treatments.

In a statement posted to his website, the McCain family said:

“Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious. In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment. Our family is immensely grateful for the support and kindness of all his caregivers over the last year, and for the continuing outpouring of concern and affection from John’s many friends and associates, and the many thousands of people who are keeping him in their prayers. God bless and thank you all.”

His daughter, Meghan McCain, posted to Twitter on Friday:

“My family is deeply appreciative of all the love and generosity you have shown us during this past year. Thank you for all your continued support and prayers. We could not have made it this far without you – you’ve given us strength to carry on.”

His wife, Cindy McCain, also posted. She said:

“I love my husband with all of my heart. God bless everyone who has cared for my husband along this journey.”

McCain was diagnosed last July with an aggressive brain tumor following a blood clot removal above his left eye on July 14, 2017.

His doctors said McCain has glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer.

At the time of diagnosis, support poured in from both sides of the political aisle.

President Donald Trump had said McCain has “always been a fighter,” and he and First Lady Melania Trump “send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, [his wife] Cindy, and their entire family. Get well soon.”

Former President Barack Obama said at the time: “John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I’ve ever known. Cancer doesn’t know what it’s up against. Give it hell, John.”

      by R.C. Sproul   It is ironic that in the same chapter, indeed in the same context, in which our Lord teaches the utter necessity of rebirth to even see the kingdom, let alone choose it, non-Reformed views find one of their main proof texts to argue that fallen man retains a small island of ability to choose Christ. It is John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”   What does this

His words from verse 65 caused them to disassociate from Him.   I do w

    • Jesus’ Preexistence in the Gospel of John

      by Robert Reymond   Did Jesus claim for himself pre-existence, and if so, in what sense? In the ontological (essential) or in the ideal (‘foreknown’) sense? For one who takes Jesus’ words at face value and does not explain them away, it is evident that Jesus affirmed of himself as ‘the Son,’ not just an ideational pre-existence, but a pre-existence of an eternal ontological kind: ‘Glorify me, Father,’ he prayed, ‘with yourself, with the glory which I had with you before the world was’ (17
