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.

Thanks, William. Yes, I drifted away from regular posting on this site, but the occasional email notification comes through, and this one piqued my interest as I too dislike the pathetic, badly acted Christian-themed movies but enjoyed the movies you mentioned. Just last Sunday our ekklesia discussed Desmond Doss, Hacksaw Ridge, & the Medal of Honor with its pagan image and whether to accept such a thing.

 

The days of the week derive from pagan sources and it would be absurd to prohibit the convention of their use, so the rule is to be in the world but not of the world.

Indeed. We have coins, and stamps, and a plethora of carvings and totems all with repesentations of tiki demons going on. No cause to stumble though.

The names of certain gods are normal everyday English words.  There is no way to avoid them.  We use them all the time.

 

Greek

Atlas

Chronos - chronology

Clotho (one of the three Fates) - cloth

Echo (the name of a nymph)

Eros - erotic

Hypnos - hypnosis

Helios - heliocentric

Khaos - chaos

Morpheus - morphine

Narcissus - narcissism

Nemesis

Okeanos (Oceanus) - ocean

Pan - panic
Typhon - typhoon

 

And those are just a few examples from Greek.

 

Hel - hell (from Norse mythology)  Hey that is in our English Bibles.

 

Roman

Aurora - aurora borealis

Faunus - fauna

Flora - flora

Fortuna - fortune

Mars - martial

Vulcan - volcano

 

Here is a really good.  How about cereal?  Yeah that's right.  The food thousands and thousands of children eat daily.  The word comes from the name Ceres the Roman goddess of agriculture.  I bet most parents don't know they are worshipping a Roman goddess when they serve a bowl Froot Loops to their child.

 

That is why I fed my grandson oat meal every morning.😂😂😂

Gotta watch that cereal 🥗

And then there's one of the interests of your namesake, Origen, "hermeneutics".

On Hermeneutics From Wkpd

Folk etymology

Hermes, messenger of the gods.

Folk etymology places its origin with Hermes, the mythological Greek deity who was the 'messenger of the gods'.[13] Besides being a mediator between the gods and between the gods and men, he led souls to the underworld upon death.

Hermes was also considered to be the inventor of language and speech, an interpreter, a liar, a thief and a trickster.[13] These multiple roles made Hermes an ideal representative figure for hermeneutics. As Socrates noted, words have the power to reveal or conceal and can deliver messages in an ambiguous way.[13] The Greek view of language as consisting of signs that could lead to truth or to falsehood was the essence of Hermes, who was said to relish the uneasiness of those who received the messages he delivered.

With LGBT dominating it's power in Hollywood that almost every TV shows have liberal agenda on it, what are some TV shows you can recommend that is more Christian friend but entertaining. I mean even superhero shows have Gay characters or characters who have abortion. Are there Tv shows you can recommend that are more Christian family friendly?

I'm down to news, sports and the weather channel .   M
