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.

Your response seems to me to be   wrong. First I remind you we are no longer a country that is run by godly people and I can no longer say our country is even close to godly. Matthew Christians are in the minority. Try challenging a man using the F bomb in a crowd and see the reaction. No longer is open prayer permitted in many school functions before a game.. 

If you ever attempted to tell someone "If you don't like my country or my godly principals then START RUNNING AND GET OUT OF MY NATION AND DON'T LOOK BACK!" Then Matthew you most likely would find serious problems and possible arrest. What you've said might well have forked back in 1957 but not now. 

 

On top of all this, after I read what you said I wondered if that would be the response of Jesus Christ? I honestly don't think so. IMO I would ask the person why that you felt so deeply  about our country. Who knows maybe a conversation could result in that person surrendering to Jesus Christ.  For me I am far more concerned about a persons sould that our temporary residence here on this earth. Eternity comes much sooner that we can realize, Life after here on earth is far more of concern that liking our country/

 

By no means am I not a solid American. I am a 100% service connected home bound Navy Vet. I pay the price of serving our country daily.           

I agree with all you've said. However there is one topic that we, as believers must be attentive to. And that is the state of our nation. I am not a fan of Perry Stone ,however he did say something yesterday that caught my attention . He stressed the fact that this nation is etching closer and closer towards a Socialist state . Since the subject is ignored in our higher learning institutes it is leaving younger and misinformed Americans with the impression that socialism is a state of utopia where the government gives you everything and everything is free including the dreaded student loan programs . Christians are a minority in this nation, but not a weak minority in name only . We must...I stress... use our privilege and duty of reaching God in prayer and crying out to Him to "Save this nation ". And we must pray without ceasing ,in everything give thanks ;for this is the will of God concerning you." 1st.Thes. 5:17. The threat is at our door steps . If we do not take advantage of our right to approach God in prayer and we find ourselves in homes we no longer own and cars we can no longer drive ,to name only a few of the terrible things a socialist government will bring, then we rightly deserve what we will get. Instead of useless arguments like "Did Jesus actually exist " or " Scientist  say Red Sea Crossing a Hoax " we should consider them what they are ;Lost reprobates getting their just deserve in eternal Hell ! We MUST  use the power of prayer or get used to legal slavery under a Hillary Clinton or Barrack Obama dictatorship ! I'm not kidding about this ! We need to use the duty and privilege of prayer to combat this imminent threat  of living in a socialist nation and surrender everything we have , It will be too late . Remember, the prayers of the unbelieving are never heard by God. In spite what some liberal theologians want you to believe .

Matthew thanks for your reply. In our nation and World I see one of the biggest problem is illegal drugs. I could not find a illegal drug if my life depended up on it. But recently its showed its wicked evil presents very close to us. Drugs are more involved in the lives of people that I could have imagined. The Authorities that we expect to be honest and stand against them, protect and some even use them. Where I became aware of this is disheartening, a young man I became fairly close to could no longer hid his addiction. He is a mean, cruel,filthy, and heartless when he is high on drugs. He has effected our family, and hurt one of our daughters. The authorities know and won't do anything. His suppliers are fully known and he is allowed to continue selling and addicting people. I am greatly hurt and disillusioned.

 

I see little chance our country will change. I think evil has taken serious root, and as Christians we must pray that our brothers and sisters will remain true to their faith in Jesus Christ. I do not see things getting better at all. 

 

Few there are that choose the narrow road. We are facing difficult times and things will get worse. Jesus Christ warned us of this. We are to be prepared and ready.

 When the situation as described above continues to deteriorate at an accelerating rate can one also find assurance that the end draweth nigh and that we do not belong to this sin soaked world?

 This doesn't mean to give up and do nothing in the face of it. I believe the darker this world gets the higher we're supposed to hold the light. Furthermore, the better sin is being pictured and glamorized in the world today the worse we're to picture it.

Brethren the end of the Age is upon us..All over the world , refelective minds are discerning the fact that we are on the eve of another of those far-reaching crisis which make the history of our race...Those who look out on present conditions are forced to conclude that the consummation of this dispensation is at hand... The sands in the hour glass of this Day of Salvation have almost run out.The signs of the Times demonstrate it. 'But',it may be asked,'Have not other ages as well as the present one been crowded with signs of distress?". Undoubtedly....They unduly magnified the evil and erred in their calculations....But today, the Signs are so plain they cannot be mis-read, though the foolish may close their eyes and refuse to examine them. What these Signs are we have shown at length in chapter six and if the evidence there furnished has not convinced the reader that the Lord is at hand,then there is little hope any further arguments drawn from Scripture will do so.

I believe the approval and acceptance of homosexuality, same sex marriage, transgendering, living together without being married, and fornication are major reasons for the downfall of our country. Even worse is the acceptance many churches of all the things I have listed. This is NOT Christianity and if anyone doubts that Gods anger is not building against the USA. In Hebrews it says God is Holy and He expects us to be likewise, the real question is are you and I really Holy before God. Any thoughts?

In order for ‘evil’ to prevail, all that need happen is for ‘good’ people to do nothing. 

We were quiet to long..

Many of us have been boycotting Target and Walgreens for their PC Obama feces.
