Christian 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.

Will Church School be Forced to Ban Bible, Crosses, and Religious Assembly?

Recommended Posts

To me it seems odd that the parents in a church school would Do that. Or is it a situation where a few parents have their students in that school to intentionally cause a problem. The charity is teaching against homosexuality / those relationships and apparently England, as a country is okay with homosexual relationships?

 

Kind of like in this country -- a few people don't like 'something' and they cause so much dissension on purpose as to result in a tradition to be over-turned. Getting anything related to Christianity ousted from Society. Very sad, People are almost afraid to take a Positive stand For Christianity.

    • Does the Bible Support Female Deacons? No.

      Does Scripture permit women to hold the office of deacon? In addressing this important question, we must bear a couple of things in mind. First, Reformed pastors and theologians, fully committed to the authority and inerrancy of Scripture, have disagreed about what the Bible teaches concerning women and the diaconate. This state of affairs calls for particular humility in discussing this question. Second, all sides recognize that women in some way have served in the diaconate in various periods

    • Does the Bible Support Female Deacons? Yes.

      The question as to whether women should serve as deacons is unclear in the Bible, and so it makes sense that sincere interpreters of Scripture differ on the matter. Thus, we must beware of dogmatism and an uncharitable spirit when adjudicating the evidence. The issue is addressed directly in only two verses (Rom. 16:1; 1 Tim. 3:11), and the meaning of both is disputed. The disagreement surfaces in English translations. Romans 16:1 in the NIV reads, “I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon

    • The Church Loved My Daughter to Jesus

      Recently, one of my daughters came to faith in Jesus. She started talking to us and asking questions while driving home from our community groups on Sunday nights. As most conversations about the gospel tend to go, we talked about the character of God, sin, Jesus’s death and resurrection, faith, hope, repentance, and many related issues. We’ve been praying for our daughter since before she was born. We memorized Scripture with her, read her the Bible, sang hymns with her, and catechized her fro
