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.

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who has announced a 2020 run for president, questioned a Trump judicial nominee this week over the nominee’s opinion on same-sex marriage.

First question that should be asked of Cory Booker, "What is sin?" Second question, "what is marriage and who defines marriage?"

 

Draw a clear red line and let Booker cross it and emphasize the standard of immorality imposed on the People by his political party ~ Leftist secular religion.

Many people are afraid to admit their true beliefs when confronted by a person who supports LGBTQ. Sadly we witness again and again people wimp down and say something like "I treat people all the same". If I were asked if LGBTQ people were immoral or in sin, I would politely state that is my belief, but I treat people with respect and expect the same in return, even though I know they are immoral.

 

I an sad at the number Christians wimp down on the subject LGBTQ, these are immoral people and need the Gospel, that is their only hope to be able to leave the LGBTQ. Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father.

A minor difference, I would take myself out of the equation and suggest, "doesn't matter what I personally believe, but rather who I believe". The left loves to shift the burden of proof upon the shoulders of the Christian when the proof is in the revealed word of God contained in the Scriptures. There's no need to defend God for He has designed, defined marriage, and sin according to His Holy standard.

 

I'd then ask Cory Booker again, who defines marriage, sin, and who imposes penalty upon man for their sins? Of course my last question leaves open the door for the role of government and furthers a talking point of a standard of morality even Cory Booker is held accountable.

 

Romans 13 states that government is ordained to combat evil and search it out. What Romans 13 does not state is that everyone in government is of God. A reoccurring biblical theme in the bible is that God gives us up to wicked rulers when He is judging a nation. Israel was given over to captivity time and time again for their whoredom.

 

I'd just like to stick Booker on his "standard of morality" and clear the way for everyone to hear his holier than thou standard which he and his party are attempting to impose on the People. Just because someone claims no religion doesn't mean they do not exhibit all the characteristics of a religion.

Actually, in a judicial nomination hearing, I believe this was the correct response to Booker's question. A judicial nominee must rule based on law, not personal belief. Therefore, it is irrelevant what the person believes about LGBTQ and that is what these nominees do. They deflect the distraction and get back to the real issue.  There is a time and place for everything.
