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.

Question for the KJV Only Crowd

Recommended Posts

This question is an off-shoot of the conversation going on at 

 

My question for the KJV Onlyers is this:

 

If the original manuscripts were found today, and we had 100% proof that they were the originals, and they were worded the same as the Greek manuscripts used in the modern translations, would you reject the renderings in the KJV?

I can answer that:  No.  In fact, Sam Gipp flatly stated that the KJV supersedes and corrects the Greek originals.

Hmm, wouldn't that make KJV only a cult?

As unbelievable as it might sound it is the deification of an English translation.  It really makes no sense.  That which is a revelations about God from God becomes a god.

Does that mean that KJV Onlyers are living in active sin by breaking the commandment "Thou shall have no other gods before me"?
