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.

UN: ISIS is Crucifying and Burning Children Alive

Recommended Posts

Staff

In another horrific display of inhumane brutality, ISIS militants are crucifying children and burying them alive, according to the United Nations.

 

Christian Today reports that a UN watchdog made the announcement. UN Committee expert Renate Winter said most of the children are from Christian communities, though others are Shi’ites and Sunnis.

 

"We are really deeply concerned at the torture and murder of those children, especially those belonging to minorities, but not only from minorities. The scope of the problem is huge," Winter said.

 

At the same time the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has reported that children are also being used a suicide bombers, bomb makers, and human shields for the terrorists.

 

"We have had reports of children, especially children who are mentally challenged, who have been used as suicide bombers, most probably without them even understanding. There was a video placed [online] that showed children at a very young age, approximately eight years of age and younger, to be trained already to become child soldiers,” Winter said.

 

"There is a duty of a state to protect all its children. The point is just how are they going to do that in such a situation?"
