Community 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.

Systematic Theology - Charles Hodge

Recommended Posts

Staff

The magnum opus of one of America's most prominent theologians offers an in-depth exploration of theology, anthropology, soteriology, and eschatology. This monumental work, now a standard for theological students, was written while Hodge served as a professor at Princeton, where he permanently influenced American Christianity as a teacher, preacher, and exegete. Includes a comprehensive index.

Wow you read all of that. 

 

 

Amazing. 

 

 

No I haven’t read it. 

 

 

I read the Bible because it’s inspired.

I was thinking the same thing.  It also makes me wonder why he would ask for a link to Hodge when he knows he is not going to read it.  What is the point in that?

JLB has never understood his words are only commentaries. There seems to be a strong feeling of only he and those who blindly agree with him are taught of the Holy Spirit.  The approach seems to be literal until it does not suit him. Not rude or ugly just very double standardly  dogmatic.

To demonstrate how he rejects the teaching of Scripture concerning certain offices and men gifted (quipped) for those offices?

You were not asked why you post but why you read.. Still twisting the words.  Over the years you post as if your words are not commentary yet they are exactly that .. Once again why do read forums , then again maybe you dont really read others posts.

Why would you read the commentaries of forum members and ignore commentaries written before this style of forums was available?   Those older commentaries can also be replied too.

This is one of the books[ or rather, group of books]I need to add to my collection. I love to have a hardback copy, simply because that is how I have always studied, and I like to highlight different colors. When I'm done with a book, it looks like a rainbow lol. 

 

I have read some of these volumes, and absolutely love them!
