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.

Are you going to turn this into a poll?

 

I see myself as a Conservative with Libertarian leanings.  I support small government in that they are here to represent us on the world stage and protect us from foreign enemies.  When it comes to the economy they should stay out of it and let capitalism and the free market do what it does best.

Are you defining Libertarian in the classical sense? Because today's "Liberal" movement doesn't resemble in any way shape or form the classical libertarian movement beyond the name.

I have been a big supporters for the Pauls (Rand and Ron) who have been, historically, libertarian in their policy stances.  Of course plenty of people who have become disillusioned by their original parties (Dems and Reps) have joined the Libertarian ranks, but it has not benefited from the broad spectrum of political views of the people that are now part of that group.  The cross section of views is so vast it is no wonder the libertarian, much less the Tea Party, never really gained any traction as a major political party.

I don't agree with Rand Paul on his position for abortion and I don't agree with him on issues of national security.

Conservative Republican ! I don't believe a word the democrats say . If (God forbid ) they do happen to occupy the oval office you can look forward to your Second Amendment  Rights being blatantly violated. They would wait until they were in office , " THEN " knock on your door and tell you to surrender your gun .  M
