Community 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.

Let’s Be Both Conservative and Radical

Let's Be Both Conservative and Radical

John Stott once said, “Every Christian should be both conservative and radical; conservative in preserving the faith and radical in applying it.” In this new video, TGC Council members Tim Keller, Don Carson, and Stephen Um discuss what this should look like in practice. They talk about the way Scripture is applied in different cultures, the danger of equating cultural traditions with biblical authority, and what it means to be “radical” in application.

Keller says, “You need to be absolutely true from generation to generation to whatever the text actually says. But then, you have to be extremely creative in applying it to new situations.”

You can listen to the episode here or watch the video.
