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.

    • How Should Pastors Use Social Media?

      There are several ways pastors may be tempted to misuse social media. They may treat it as a highlight reel, showing off their ministry successes and building up an online identity disconnected from real life. Or they may become active participants in the outrage culture of Facebook and Twitter rather than diffusers of online conflict. Given the many ways using social media can go wrong, would it be better for pastors to stay away entirely? Not necessarily, say Russell Moore, Trevin Wax, and Sc

    • Does the Bible Support Female Deacons? No.

      Does Scripture permit women to hold the office of deacon? In addressing this important question, we must bear a couple of things in mind. First, Reformed pastors and theologians, fully committed to the authority and inerrancy of Scripture, have disagreed about what the Bible teaches concerning women and the diaconate. This state of affairs calls for particular humility in discussing this question. Second, all sides recognize that women in some way have served in the diaconate in various periods

    • Does the Bible Support Female Deacons? Yes.

      The question as to whether women should serve as deacons is unclear in the Bible, and so it makes sense that sincere interpreters of Scripture differ on the matter. Thus, we must beware of dogmatism and an uncharitable spirit when adjudicating the evidence. The issue is addressed directly in only two verses (Rom. 16:1; 1 Tim. 3:11), and the meaning of both is disputed. The disagreement surfaces in English translations. Romans 16:1 in the NIV reads, “I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon

    • The United Methodist Church to vote on LGBTQ Pastors

      On this Tuesday February 12, 2019 the United Methodist Church will gather in St. Louis to accept LGBTQ Pastors. Many fear this will split the Methodist denomination. John Wesley surly would be so ashamed of how the church has become turned form the teaching of the Bible.    I personally hope those who still believe in Scripture brake away from the LGBTQ group as fast as they can! Like yesterday!

    • How Do Churches End Up with Domineering Bullies for Pastors?

      We are, sadly, familiar with pastors having to leave the ministry because of sexual impropriety. These incidents seem to occur with such frequency as to be barely newsworthy to a watching world. But another, equally sad trend has developed in recent years: Pastors having to leave for bullying. While we should be concerned by this trend, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised. The apostle Peter expected this possibility back in the first century. Writing to pastors, he warned that they shouldn’t be
