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.

The New Jerusalem

Recommended Posts

This is a Christian sect headed by a certain Apollo Quiboloy. With their headquarters in Davao City, south of the Philippines, they are building a nation they call New Jerusalem. The Pastor Quiboloy bears the title "appointed son of God" so it is clear that he is the new messiah. Funny because there were so many ahead of him who claimed to be the reincarnation of Jesus. But what gets me is that he has lots of followers. I wonder how people look at him and why they join his sect which looks more like a cult. Shades of the Guyana Tragedy of Jim Jones where he professed to be the messiah and when the scam was uncovered he initiated a mass suicide for his followers.

 

Pastor Quiboloy has a tv program where he preaches together with his choir composed of mostly foreigners.

People who reject the true gospel place themselves under Satan's power and can easily be deceived by him. This is why all efforts to evangelize must be accompanied by much prayer if they are to be successful.
