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.

Democratic Presidential Candidate Wants To Confiscate Your Guns And Throw You In Jail If You Resist

2020 presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell says he’ll institute a mandatory gun buyback program, and throw any citizens who defy it in prison.

The four-term Democratic representative from California appeared on CNN’s “State Of The Nation” Sunday, telling host Jake Tapper he wants to ban military-style assault weapons and establish a program similar to one implemented by New Zealand in the wake of their mosque shooting.

Citizens will be required to turn over qualifying guns or offered the alternative to store them in a gun club or firing range. Those who refuse will be criminally prosecuted.

“…the reason I’ve proposed this, is because these weapons are so devastating. I’ve seen this as a prosecutor in the cases I’ve prosecuted,” Swalwell explained. “I’ve seen these in the school shootings from Sandy Hook to Parkland…It’s not just the violence they’ve caused. It’s the fear, the immeasurable fear our children live in, because they’re still on our streets. I want to get rid of that fear.”

Tapper challenged the candidate, “I know you know this, but the vast majority of gun-related deaths in this country are not related these semiautomatic assault weapons,” he said. “..isn’t it fair to say you actually do want to take away people’s guns?”

Swalwell insisted that his proposal was not an incremental step toward a broader gun ban, “You know, keep your pistols, keep your long rifles, keep your shotguns,” Swalwell said. “I want the most dangerous weapons, the weapons of war out of the hands of the most dangerous people.”

Swalwell announced he would enter the crowded Democratic field for president April 14.
