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.

My friend was once agnostic, though with christian leanings. He believed that all good people should go to heaven. This is until he received an epiphany and he realized that this belief was to satisfy his needs. It made him look better than a traditional christian and he was mostly accepted by atheists since they have issues with those thinking they're going to hell.

He claims to be a traditional christian but is still inclusive of universalism. His concern is that his belief may have misled other Christians and led them away from their faith. He is afraid that he may be responsible for damning fellow Christians.

What are your thoughts on this?

I think, Ptham, that your friend should quietly let other Christians believe what they have been taught and not try to tell them different. I also think he should read the Bible and pray aboput what he is reading. I hope he can come to understand how God thinks and why He does what He does.
