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.

    • Is Genesis a kind of parable to explain what could not have been explained?

      Personally, I am Christian, but I believe in evolution. All the facts in science point towards that. What do others think?

    • The Reverse Genesis Narrative of ‘Bird Box’

      Bird Box begins in hell. Hell, in this case, is a rapidly escalating global catastrophe—a creaturely presence that, upon being seen, drives one to sudden and violent death by suicide. The only way to save oneself is not to see this evil. Survival depends on remaining behind darkened windows when inside and wearing a blindfold when out. Adapted from a 2014 novel, the Netflix original film (directed by Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier) was viewed a record-breaking 45 million times within a week of

      “In the declaration that God is setting enmity between the serpent and the women, we see in kernel the emphasis on the sovereignty of God in salvation. He does not turn to us and say, ‘Save yourselves,’ or ‘Here’s a little grace, now save yourselves.’ He says, ‘I’m going to war for you. I’m going to war against the serpent.’” — Ligon Duncan Text: Genesis 3:1–19 Preached: December 2, 2012 Location: First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi You can listen to this episode of TGC Word of t

    • Genesis 3:4-5 question about deity

      Genesis 3:4-5,  But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”   I am examining the lie of Satan in Genesis 3:4-5. Is Satan implying that man will be "god" or "God"? And how would you differentiate between the two? Please also consider touching upon the eternal state of your definition. For example, can "gods" exists from a point of time or have a beginning
