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.

I'll check them later. I approach of course with caution, knowing that television generally hates the Christian religion and always tries to pluck things out of context to sway people against it.

Thank you for the share. I've bookmarked this one as I love church history. The period of the Reformation is particularly interesting.

 

Tangentially, I generally don't go to the cinema. I did make an exception when the film Luther, starring Joseph Fiennes, came out. :)

Actually, I really enjoyed that film. The earlier movie on Luther (the 1953 one starring Niall MacGinnis) was also excellent, with some good doctrinal comments within. Here's a link:
