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.

Transgenders and same sex marriage

Recommended Posts

Most of us on this forum believe that marriage is a union between a man and a woman and that same sex marriage is wrong. That seems perfectly clear, but the fact that some people identify with the opposite of their birth sex and some of them have their bodies surgically altered to take on the form of the sex they prefer complicates things. Suppose a man and a woman want to marry but one of them was born as a member of the other sex and has undergone a sex change operation; should they be allowed to marry or are they actually a same sex couple? The same question arises if two men or two women want to marry and one of them was originally of the opposite sex.
