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.

Do we have an immortal soul?

No, we don't all have an immortal soul but each of us has an eternal soul. Each of us have a soul that will last forever, but eternal existence isn't the same as live. Here is how Jesus defined eternal life: "And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." When someone repents of his sins and put his faith in Jesus Christ his soul become immortal. The souls of those who fail to do this are eternal and will endure forever but they will not possess life.

That is just a matter of semantics.

Semantics can be important in accurately understanding what the Bible says.
I agree. Yet it was a general question and nothing more was meant by it. I find no reason to think that one and only one word can convey the same kind idea. Edited by Origen
