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.

House Chairman Asks IRS For Six Years Of Trump Taxes

The Democratic chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee asked the Internal Revenue Service on Wednesday for six years of President Donald Trump’s personal tax returns and those of his businesses.

In a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles P. Rettig, Massachusetts Rep. Richard Neal said that he wanted to investigate whether the IRS is following its policy of auditing all sitting presidents and vice-president’s tax returns.

“Little is known about the effectiveness of this program. On behalf of the American people, the Ways and Means Committee must determine if that policy is being followed, and, if so, whether these audits are conducted fully and appropriately,” wrote Neal, who is seeking records for between 2013 and 2018.

In his letter, Neal insisted that he is not seeking Trump’s taxes for political reasons.

“This request is about policy, not politics; my preparations were made on my own track and timeline, entirely independent of other activities in Congress and the Administration,” he said.

“My actions reflect an abiding reverence for our democracy and our institutions, and are in no way based on emotion of the moment or partisanship.”

Trump has long resisted calls to releases his taxes, claiming that he is unable to release the documents because he is under audit. He repeated that claim on Wednesday in response to Neal’s letter.

“We are under audit, despite what people said, and working that out,” said Trump. “I’m always under audit, it seems, but I’ve been under audit for many years because the numbers are big, and I guess when you have a name, you’re audited. But until such time as I’m not under audit, I would not be inclined to do it.”
