Christian 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.

Ben Carson Calls for Surveillance of Churches and Mosques to Counter Terrorism

Recommended Posts

Ben Carson lost my vote.

 

The power to survey is the power to harass and oppress. I won't vote for anyone who wants the church surveyed and thus harassed and oppressed. We don't treat all people the same, not even remotely. Consider that blacks frequently use the n-word and other racial slurs without consequence, while someone white will likely be fired or expelled from school for saying the n-word, even if they carefully say it in a non-racist fashion. Anyway, that misses the point, government shouldn't be in the business of surveying Americans without probable cause. And, I don't think you're going to find much probable cause to survey Christians to stop Islamic terrorist attacks.

I agree.

 

Seems to me that Carson is making equilibrium or attempting to balance voters to people please. It makes no sense to me why Christians or churches are being mentioned when the issue is with Muslims, Mosques, or the Islamic religion. I also don't understand why whenever mentioning ISIS leftist keep mentioning Israel. Mention ISIS and people talk about Zionism. There was a cute meme of a liberal taking an eye exam that I can't find. It had the liberal standing in front of an eye chart with ISIS terrorist, and all the liberal could see was Israel Israel Israel. I wonder how many Christian terrorist organizations there are, and how they define "terrorist" to include such organizations if Christian?

 

God bless,

William
