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.

    • 1 Corinthians 13:8-10. What is the perfect that is to come?

      1Corinthians 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tounges, they shall they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.   So what is the "perfect"? It could be the return of Christ, or it could be the completion of the the Bible and/or the maturing of the early

    • "God may be all in all" and the eternal subordination of the Son (1 Corinthians 15:28)

      1 Corinthians 15:28   When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all (NASB).    A. Those who deny the Lord Jesus is God will sometimes cite 1 Corinthians 15:28. They will point out that the Son will subject Himself to the Father. However, just because the Son does so does not negate Him being God. Functional subjection does not necessitate ontological inferiority (cf. Luke 2:5

      1 Corinthians 11:18-19 For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe it in part, for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized. Geneva:   To celebrate the Lord's supper correctly, it is required that there is not only consent of doctrine, but also of affections, so that it is not profaned. Although schisms and heresies proceed from the devil, and are evil, yet they

    • "The Trinity isn't true because God isn't the author of confusion" (1 Corinthians 14:33)

      1 Corinthians 14:33 for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. (NASB) Some who deny the Trinity will sometimes cite 1 Corinthians 14:33[*1] in thinking that because God is not the author of confusion the Trinity can't be true because it is confusing to believe that the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit are the 1 true God of the Bible.   The following reasons are why their position is to be rejected: 1.

    • 2 Corinthians 5:10 Judgement seat of Christ

      In 1 John 1:9 we are told when we confess our sins Jesus is "faithful and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." NIV 1985  However in 2 Corinthians 5:10 "For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad."   If we have confessed our sins and been forgiven, the verse in 2 Corinthians 5:10 seems to say that we will be judged for these  sins,
