Christian Fellowship Community Forums

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.

I start a thread called Genesis 1: A Polemic Against the Gods.

Here's my take reading Gen. 1:1-5.... based on my Biblical perspective.

 

 

Genesis 1:1 is just a preface -The Story of the "Beginning" ... The Making of our Physical World.

 

Genesis 1:2 narrates us the condition of the deep (dark - void) before the world was.

 

Genesis 1:3 documents us the bringing forth of the Light before anything is made that was made; before the world was.

 

Genesis 1:4 the division / separation of Light from darkness - the first work of old.

 

Genesis 1:5 The evening & the morning, the first day.

 

Notice:
The heaven and the earth were still formless and void on the first day. The first formation of the PHYSICAL heaven took place only on the 2nd day (Gen. 1:6-8) .... and our own physical heaven and earth were made on the 3rd day.

I believe, I already participated in the "Poll" survey separately.... However, I am not sure why my post above which also has its own separate topic and thread (Genesis 1 - From a Different Perspective) was move and included in this thread!? Any thought? Thanks... God bless

Sorry 2Pillars,

 

Your post was merely moved to answer the question presented to you. The move, I hope is not deemed over or micro moderation, but rather thought better off here. Please do not let this deter you from further commenting.

 

And welcome to the forum!

 

God bless,

William
