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.

Victims of French terrorist attacks

Recommended Posts

I am certain that any Christian who is aware of the French terrorist attacks is praying for those who were injured and the survivors of those who were killed. There is one group of victims we may be overlooking, the other Syrian refugees. One of the attackers was among the Syrian refugees who had been admitted to France. As a result many are advocating an end to accepting Syrian refugees in their countries. These may be the most tragic victims of the attacks. They are completely innocent yet are condemned because they share a nationality with the attackers.

Yes. A number of Syrian refugees are Christian. Most of the Muslim refugees no doubt do not support terrorism. They're going to suffer from what a small minority of Muslims did, or plan to do.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Assad was behind the French attack, a false-flag attack having nothing to do with Islam and everything to do with politics. He the biggest winner. France has already escalated attacks on Assad's enemies, and probably otherwise have ceased being America's ally as Assad's enemy.

The innocent refugees are in my prayers, Theo. I have been praying for some time.

Except ISIS has claimed responsibility, and some ISIS members that took responsibility (around 14) were identified... at least one being a French national. Despite Obama's lies suggesting that they are able to check the backgrounds of incoming refugees, the FBI Director says there is no way to do so:

 

James Comey said “We can only query against that which we have collected. And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record of them,”

Yes, I think ISIS did it, but I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't do it. A false-flag operation is to do something but make it look like someone else did that something. Assad is a guaranteed winner (unless caught). But, for ISIS, it's a big gamble with small payoff potential.

Obama is leading a false flag operation. I guess Obama's teleprompter wasn't prepared to answer a direct question, a question many Americans and parents of those on the front lines want answers to. He says what we are capable of doing, but we don't do. In my book if we did what he says we are capable of doing - we'd win. An ideological war is different, and Obama's liberal and socialist ideology won't be accepted by foreign countries under Islamic rule. Seven years in office as President and this man is still not qualified to lead our country. When the French responded to the terrorist attacks by bombing a training facility and munitions depot in a joint operation with the U.S. military, my immediate question was why didn't we already do so?

 

I can't believe how difficult it is to find a Youtube video that wasn't clipped:

The US goal is to overthrow the Syrian government, not to defeat ISIS. The French had been allies with the US in this.

 

A better question than why didn't the US join France in the attacks against ISIS is why didn't the French engage in these bombings before the attack in France? If France is right to be in Syria in the first place, then they should have been more aggressive in their attacks in the first place. If being more aggressive was strategically wrong, it's still strategically wrong even after the attacks in France.
