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.

Treasury Dept Refuses To Cough Up Trump’s Tax Returns, Setting Up A Possible SCOTUS Showdown

The Treasury Department refused to provide House Democrats access to President Donald Trump’s tax returns, The New York Times reported Monday.

“As you have recognized, the committee’s request is unprecedented, and it presents serious constitutional questions, the resolution of which may have lasting consequences for all taxpayers,” Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, wrote in a letter to Democratic Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts. The request “lacks a legitimate legislative purpose,” Mnuchin added.

Mnuchin argued that the request is political in nature and that honoring the demand would be a violation of taxpayer privacy. He also warned that if Trump’s tax returns are released, then lawmakers could be vulnerable to such prying. He told Neal in an April letter that the demand amounted to “exposure for the sake of exposure.”

Trump has long resisted calls to release his taxes, claiming he is unable to release the documents because he is under audit. He repeated that claim Wednesday in response to Neal’s letter. “We are under audit, despite what people said, and working that out,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

Democratic lawmakers point to a statute that says the Treasury secretary “shall” give over any returns requested by heads of congressional tax committees — but the matter might be up to the courts to decide. “Broad as is [Congress’] power of inquiry, it is not unlimited,” the Supreme Court said in the 1957 case Watkins v. U.S.
