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.

Russia Violates Critical Nuclear Treaty, NATO Speaks Out

Russia is not following the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), according to NATO, which has given Moscow until August 2 to return to compliance.

The INF bans the production and maintenance of land-based medium and short-range nuclear weapons designed to be housed near an adversary. President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the INF in February amid longstanding accusations that Russia maintains Novator 9M729 missiles which violate the treaty, according to Newsweek.

Now, the secretary general of NATO has stated that Russia is in “clear violation of the treaty,” reports The BBC.

“This is serious. The INF treaty has been a corner stone in arms control for decades and now we see the demise of the treaty,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Thursday, according to BBC.

Unfortuantly, Stoltenberg has also stated that there are “no signs whatsoever” that Russia will come back to INF compliance. “Therefore we have to be prepared for a world without the INF treaty and with more Russian missiles,” he said.

Stoltenberg says there will be “measured, defensive” NATO actions if Russia doesn’t start following the INF again by August 2.

“The end of the treaty could spark a new missile race in Europe,” Kinston Reif, director of Disarmament & Threat Reduction Policy at the Arms Control Association told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Russia could soon deploy more 9M729 missiles and develop new types of prohibited missiles,” he continued.

Russia already possesses “12,000 nuclear weapons [that] exist in various storage facilities across Russia,” according to Harvard’s Belfer Center.

Additionally, Russia has begun selling conventional S-400 anti air missiles to Turkey, reports BBC.

Turkey is a NATO member state and ally of the U.S. However, their recent cooperation with Russia has prompted the U.S. to boot Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet program. This has cost America half a billion dollars. according to Defense News.
