Community Fellowship

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.

POLL: Trump’s Approval Numbers Top Obama’s During His First Term

Recommended Posts

By Chris White -

Donald Trump success


President Donald Trump’s approval ratings blow past former President Barack Obama’s first term numbers, according to a Gallop poll published Monday.

Trump’s ratings topped 46 percent for the first time during his presidency, the poll noted. Gallop argued that the higher numbers are likely a result of a strong economy and the Department of Justice’s decision to publish special counsel Robert Mueller ‘s report into Russian election meddling.

Department of Labor data released Friday showed the U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs in April while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, making March the 103rd straight month of job growth. Economists predicted 190,000 jobs would be added and the unemployment rate would hold at 3.8 percent. The unemployment rate hit a 50-year low, media reports show.

The president’s ratings are higher than former President Barack Obama’s numbers during his first two years in office. Trump’s predecessor enjoyed a 43 percent approval rating in April of 2011, a time when the former president was dealing with conservative criticism of 2010’s Affordable Health Care Act.

The poll, conducted between April 17 -30, surveyed more than 1,000 people and has a margin of error of 4 percent. It also shows that Trump’s approval rating among Republicans spiked at 91 percent. Democrats’ ratings of Trump increased as well, with 12 percent approving of the president. That number is higher than the 4 percent Democrat support he received a few months ago.

Gallop’s poll mirrored a Wall Street Journal survey published on Sunday. Trump’s overall approval rating ticked up slightly to 46 percent in that poll. It also show that the same percentage of voters who disapprove of the president (51 percent) support his handling of the economy by the same margin. That’s a marked difference from 2017, when 44 percent expressed support for Trump’s economic stewardship.

Gallop and WSJ’s poll results come after a Washington Post survey published in April showed that only 30 percent of respondents planned to “definitely support” Trump come 2020. An additional 52 percent reported they would definitely not support him in any way, according to the poll.
