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.

California fires again

Recommended Posts

The small town of Paradise is gone.  We have a couple relatives who have been burned out.  For those who do not know the grounds Paradise is one of those lovely towns where the evergreen trees are every where , They are/were a good part natural beauty of the place. The fire is burning towards Chico . Chico should end up being OK  because of the fields are not covered in the beautiful pines. Although we know fires often fool the fighters. 

 

Last summer there was fire about 10 miles from our town. A small one about 2000 acres . The point of mentioning this? I often travel the road through the burn. The green new growth is growing. :classic_smile: Up out of the darkness is new life . God's creation is marvelous .

Dear Lord Yeshua, I pray for the salvation and safety of Becky and her loved ones as well as all people whom are affected by this forest fire.  In Yeshua's Name, Amen.

There is speculation that this is punishment for California electing Gavin Newsom and not repealing the gas tax.  Not that I buy into that kind of nonsense, but one does have to wonder at the timing.

Maybe that could be true for the fires down in the LA area but us up here in the  north are RED

Not very well represented, though.  I imagine the majority of the people in your area voted yes on prop 6, but there are just too many idiots to sway the vote in the larger metropolitan areas.

That is a good reason why we want a split.

Yup, though you will probably have an easier time seceding from the country, before anyone is willing to get enough momentum behind splitting the state.

 

Both recent attempts have failed, though I think the one to split the state into six was probably the most ambitious, yet least likely to happen.

Gavin in a lot of ways is much worse than the fires which only consume property. Remember when Israel wanted a king (Saul)? God granted them the king knowing full well they rejected Him. 

 

On the topic of politics I won't support a split that triples the power of the left. Not very many real red areas exists in California. For example, in the election Orange county flipped four Republican seats to Democrat. When asked why, the RINOS stated that the GOP is becoming too Conservative. 

 

The gas tax wasn't repealed, did not matter if it was because a new tax would take its place. Gas is projected to surpass 6 dollars a gallon in only a little over a year. 

 

The housing regulation failed but they'll get it through. The elections in blue states are a joke, they only placate the citizens. Look at not only what is happening at the moment (illegals voting) but in the past with proposition 8. Why are illegals being counted in the census? If they weren't many seats would be lost in California.

 

These socialist create the mess and tax the hell out of its citizens, then they ask for votes to increase their power and government intervention promising to bail everyone out or provide relief from the mess they created. Even the numbers are a joke, California claiming they are the 5th largest economy but they fail to disclose Califorinia's economy is unsustainable with the worst income to debt ratio of every state in America.

My first wife's parents bought a retirement place about two and a half miles from Paradise around 1970. We stayed there a couple times while vacationing. They are gone now and it's just as well. I can't imagine all those pine trees gone.
