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.

    • The true worship of Jesus by the Jehovah's Witnesses (2 Timothy 4:16-18)

      2 Timothy 4:16-18 (16) At my first defense no one supported me, but all deserted me; may it not be counted against them. (17) But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fully accomplished, and that all the Gentiles might hear; and I was rescued out of the lion’s mouth.

    • Jehovah Witnesses and the Divine Name

      JWs really emphasis the used of the word "Jehovah." At this time I will not address the many problems with the history or form of the word "Jehovah," but will focus on the NWT of the N.T. In the NWT of the N.T. every time the Greek word "kurios" appears in the text, and refers to God the Father, the NTW render it "Jehovah." The Watchtower claims it is restoring the divine name back into the N.T. were it once was. The Watchtower claims:     Again the Watchtower states:     There i

      John 14:14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. (NASB - the boldface is mine)  This passage teaches that the Lord Jesus is to be prayed to.[*1]  Since the Jehovah's Witnesses teach that the Lord Jesus is not to be prayed to[*2] it is worth noting that in their 'Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures' the "Me" appears in John 14:14.  The boldface below is mine if ever    anything    you should ask         me        in        the      name
