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.

Was America always great or never that great?

 Based on seeing and reading the news it seems the liberal press is cheering them on despite contradictory assertions.

The country is great and the Constitution is great.  There is an underlying illness of secret societies and intelligence agencies doing whatever they feel which is a major problem to name one of many problems in this country. They follow East German Stasi tactics.

OUR COUNTRY HAS BEEN BLESSED AND YES, EVEN PROTECTED BY GOD FOR CENTURIES! Until  recently. Same sex marriage, abortion, and protection from authorities by sexual perverts, and illegal people in the USA. We just endured a president that was the most wicked we have ever had.  Unless we elect a true Godly man soon, our country will fall into a pit of wickedness, where evil is called good, and good is called evil.

 

There are people like most of us here on this web site, who pray for our leaders and look for Godly change soon.

I agree.  This country needs Godly change because there are some serious problems right now.

America was always great. Full stop. Yes, we've got some serious problems ( perhaps an issue or two that our " friends" in the Kremlin would care to honestly explain to us), but when we're not having people from the outside actively and aggressively seeking to undermine our society, those problems were always solved by Americans on American terms. Cuomo's spouting his party line while Meghan McCain was speaking from her heart.

Whether America was great or not depends on the standard you use to determine greatness.  Compared to most other countries America has been and still is great.  Yet until the Civil War slavery was tolerated and for a hundred years after racial discrimination was legal in many parts of the country.

 

Measured by God's standards there are no great countries in the world and there never will be until Jesus Christ returns and takes over the rule of the earth.

Hey,,,New Yorkers got what they wanted. A Moon Beam cry face for a governor . The people are so pro democrat that they obviously have no whelms in choosing a Jagoff like him to serve them. He is a precursor to what we may get if this flabber mouth socialist Cortez wins over a conservative Republican. So if we conservatives don't start pounding on doors, we may end up with gathering our food from a garbage can. Wake up, people !
