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.

Christian Comedian John Crist Defends Lauren Daigle, Tells Critics to 'Just Shut Up'

Recommended Posts

While I agree that some of the backlash that Lauren and John's actions have garnered are a bit over the top one has to take a look at what their actions say.  While I will not go so far as to say they are not Christians because of their actions (that is only for God to know), but I do have to question their understanding of theology.  At this point I really can only chalk this up to a naive understanding of the Scriptures, coupled with the desire of trying to avoid controversy with the secular world.
