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.

Brief but outstanding explanation of the ontological argument, from William Lane Craig

Recommended Posts

William Lane Craig is a notable Christian philosopher and apologist whose gracious tone and character do a great justice to his case for God's existence. While I happen to disagree with him on some key points of theology and apologetics, I've always had a deep appreciation for his respectful methods and carefully considered thoughts.

 

That being said, he provides a very clear and insightful explanation of an otherwise complex argument for God's existence here:

 

He explains the ontological argument, within just a minute. And he explains it well. I'm from a different school of apologetic thought called 'presuppositionalism' but I have a great deal of admiration for Craig's explanation of this proof. And I fully agree with the reasoning behind it.
