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.

Pastor Resigns over Same-sex Marriage Beliefs

Recommended Posts

We should be thankful for pastors who are willing to take a stand for the Bible rather than follow the teaching of their church. I pray that this pastor will soon find a church where he will be free to follow the Bible.

I don't know if that pastor was new there, or how the majority of his congregation believe, but, if possible, I would have preferred him to stay. Resigning is like retreating. You should only do it if the battle is lost. As their pastor, and still free to preach the Bible, he should have stayed. He could have spent time grooming his congregation to join a denomination that's not sliding into apostasy. He could have continued to uphold the Bible, and supporting the faithful in the congregation, until the ELCA no longer allowed him to follow the Bible.
