Christian Fellowship Community Forums

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.

What's up Y'all

Recommended Posts

Briefly introduce yourself.

Hey, I'm Brady. 40 year old guy living in Oregon. I'm a mental health therapy technician, and a nursing student.

 

How and how long ago did you become a Christian? Tell us about your conversion experience (if you have one).

I never really had an opportunity to not be a Christian. I was one of those born and raised in the church kids. I was first saved as a child, then a teen, and again as an adult.

 

What experiences have shaped you spiritually?

The death of my father, surviving abuse, a church embezzlement/sexual harassment scandal that destroyed my church, my school, and my church family. 

 

What evidences do you have that you have been given life by God?

The fact that I'm even here is a miracle, lol.

 

What does it mean for a person to love God? In what ways do you see true biblical love toward God demonstrated in your life?

I feel like this is a pretty personal thing, Very much based on the individual. For me? Making time for God, reading my Bible, being thankful and offering praise.

 

What activities characterize your evangelistic interest

I'm not much of an evangelist. I enjoy religious discussion, freely talk to family and friends, and discuss religion with my patients and coworkers when it's appropriate.

 

What are your specific and regular practices regarding the spiritual disciplines (e.g., personal prayer, Bible study, meditation, stewardship, learning, etc.)?

Learning, learning daily. One book spawned tens of thousands of denominations. Needless to say, there will be differences of opinion. Prayer, Bible reading.

 

Who are your favorite Christian writers, commentators, theologians, etc.? Why? What books have you read in the past year?

Outside of the Bible, I can't say I go out of my way to read Christian authors. I just kinda read whatever. Though I do love me some C.S. Lewis.

 

When you're met with opposition, has it been mostly related to your personality, your beliefs, or something else?

My beliefs for sure. And my blessing/curse of saying what I think.

 

Any advice for new or other members on Christforums?

Nope

    • Whats the significance of the launching of the MOAB

      Trump has expressed in glowing terms that the launching of the Mother of ALL Bombs (MOAB) was a strike against ISIS. But was there anything of great significance that was derived from the strike? All that we are hearing that underground tunnels were destroyed and a small number of the enemies were killed. This strike seems to be a one-off deployment of that type of missile. Do you think ISIS will be too perturbed because of this strike which seems to just expand a huge amount of resources to ach
