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.

House of Reps. Passes Resolution Declaring ISIS Committing Genocide against Christians

Recommended Posts

Staff

You and I – and probably even most American liberals – understand that Christians in the Middle East have targets painted on their backs.

 

Up until now, no one has really confirmed that what is going on is hardcore genocide.

 

The House of Representatives just weighed in…

 

From TheBlaze:

 

The House voted Monday to pass a resolution that declared the Islamic State to be committing genocide against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East.

 

“What is happening in Iraq and Syria is a deliberate, systematic targeting of religious and ethnic minorities,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said in a statement. “Today, the House unanimously voted to call ISIS’s atrocities what they are: a genocide. We also will continue to offer our prayers for the persecuted.”

 

The resolution passed 383-0.

 

That’s a major statement.

 

However, condemning the violence is hardly the same as doing something about it and ending the nonsense once and for all.

 

Why though, are there only 383 votes accounted for? Aren’t there 435 seats in the House? Who skipped out?

 

I wonder if Obama will even mention this in his weekly address.

      Trying to match a whodunnit texture finish is not an easy task...  the idiot used duct tape on the edge of the sofit while never removing the residue and it is painted over.  I will not wash the walls and ceiling  prime them and NOT remove that duct tape residue . So far the best attempt has been heat , scraping , then a sanding ... about 8 foot left to go.  It is strange how huge a strip 1 inch to maybe 1 1/2 by ten foot long can look... almost ready to skim coat the whole sofit ...  I dont eve

      There has never been a time when so much sound biblical teaching has been available at the fingertips of the ordinary person. And, thank the Lord, much of it is free. On the other hand, there has never been a time when such a vast amount of poor and heretical theology has been available to the same people. So much that I cannot keep up with it all. Many of our brothers and sisters are held captive by bad or inconsistent theology... theology that will not be able to bear the weight of the onslau

    • Christians STOP Persecuting Other Christians!

      Christians all over the world (both Catholic and Protestant alike) are guilty of persecuting other Christians (and others) using harassment tactics developed by the occult and intelligence agencies in the 20th century.  These tactics may date back as early as the Roman Empire and even Biblical times as shown below.  To see how the US intelligence apparatus operates, just look at the East German Stasi (as well as the former Soviet KGB).  The US government follows these protocols and harasses whis
