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.

A University of South Carolina student was killed after getting into a car she thought was her Uber Friday, according to police.

Samantha Josephson, 21, got into the black Chevrolet Impala in Columbia, South Carolina early Friday morning. Her body was dumped 65 miles away in a wooded area in Clarendon County and was found by hunters Friday afternoon, The Associated Press reported Sunday.

“She simply, mistakenly, got into the car thinking it was an Uber ride,” Columbia Police Chief Skip Holbrook said, according to The AP.

“The vehicle pulled up next to her and she got inside,” Columbia Police Department spokesperson Jennifer Timmons said to The Daily Caller News Foundation over the phone.

Arrest warrants released Sunday said Josephson suffered from wounds to the face, head, neck, upper body, leg and foot, The AP reported.

“This was a bad scene,” Holbrook said, The AP reported.

Nathaniel David Rowland, 24, was charged with kidnapping and murder, according to The AP.

Police reportedly found Josephson’s blood in Rowland’s car, Josephson’s cellphone, cleaning wipes, bleach and a window cleaner. The car also had child locks activated so it would make it difficult for any person to escape, according to a Saturday press conference.

It was unclear how Josephson was attacked.

Rowland allegedly knew about the area where Josephson’s body was dumped. He previously lived in the area, The AP reported.

Those using Uber are advised to match the driver’s photo and car information given in the app to the actual ride.

Uber directed TheDCNF to law enforcement for further information regarding the incident.
