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.

If you believe in and/or follow a system that calls for  multiple  physical resurrections  this is your invitation to support your contention  by  quoting  Jesus  Christ.




28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.


Good luck.

    • Is Christ's Resurrection part of what saves us?

      I read the following recently in the commentary (Tom Constable) in the Net bible which I regard highly.  Before reading this I would have said one must believe in the "death and resurrection of Christ" to be saved (1 Cor. 15:4).  Now I am not so sure.  (Aside:  I believe in both , just splitting hairs I suppose)         "Though the resurrection is part of the gospel message, it is not part of the saving work of Christ on the cross. The resurrection is stated as proof of the efficacy of

    • The Resurrection of the Dead

      The word translated as resurrection in the New Testament, is from the Greek word, ‘anastasis’, meaning; a standing up again. That is, literally, a resurrection from death—either individual or general resurrection…   And figuratively, it means a moral or spiritual recovery.   In this article, we want to consider the different kinds of resurrection of the dead as contained in the scriptures.   Kinds of Resurrection of the Dead   Scripturally, there are basic

    • Resurrection or Easter?

      Have you ever wondered why Christians call it Easter rather than Resurrection Sunday? I have a lot, I don't like calling Resurrection Sunday, Easter.   Right now big Box store have Easter candy and flowers and all kinds of "stuff" with the label "Easter" on them.

    • The Characteristics of Christ's Resurrection

      There lacks a universal consensus regarding the nature of Jesus Christ's resurrection.   Some believe that his dead body was restored to life as it was to begin with.   Others believe that his dead body was restored to life as a glorified body.   Still others believe that Christ's dead body is still dead, and its remains squirreled away somewhere on earth in a condition and a location known only to God so that Jesus could return to life as a spirit being disguised in a fully functioning
