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.

Hey there everyone.

This is a video of Justin Peters at a conference a month or so ago teaching Sola Scriptura from Luke 16:19-31.

 

God bless.

A very good message. At first I was scratching my head 'why that title?', but I guess his point was the Scriptures (esp. the Gospel.) are sufficient in reaching the lost, not Church gimmicks  and 'healing fests'.

 

  On a slightly different note, I have always wondered about the valid use of 'evidential apologetics' on the unbeliever in light of the last verse...

 

And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.  (Luk 16:31)

I think the most you can achieve with providing evidence to the unbeliever is that they'll accept facts about creation and maybe even the resurrection but they will just affirm a watered down brand of Christianity that suits the flesh, thier spiritual condition is beyond our changing.
