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.

UK Magistrate sacked for saying children are better with a mother and father

Recommended Posts

When deciding an adoption case in 2014, Richard Page stated that it was better for children to be brought up in a family with one man and one woman. In 2017 it was decided this counted as allowing his religious views to influence his judgement and he was removed from the bench. He was then removed from his role as a director of an NHS trust, and today lost his tribunal to regain his role.

 

Mr Page, who worked in mental health for 20 years, said: "It would appear no longer possible to be a Christian, to state what the Bible actually says and what the Church has believed for 2,000 years, and maintain a role in public life in today's Britain."
