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.

George Washington's Church Says Plaque Honoring First President Must Come Down

Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.

 

Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.

 

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome," leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder.

 

"Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques.”

 

"Many in our congregation feel a strong need for the church to stand clearly on the side of 'all are welcome- no exceptions,'" they concluded.

 

A memorial to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee will also come down.

 

The decision comes in the wake of renewed controversy over whether statues honoring Civil War figures should be no longer honored. The debate broke out again over the summer after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed one and injured others.

 

President Trump expressed concern that the censoring of Confederate generals would lead to dishonoring Thomas Jefferson and George Washington as well.

From the sublime to the ridiculous. You can almost feel the heavy hand of God's judgment on our nation. He shall give them up to a reprobate mind(void of judgment).

The radicals of the sixties bought into the myth of the noble savage, that somehow untainted by civilization they were more morally pure. Their aim was to reduce us to a third world nation.We seem to be on the fast track to that end.

Too many are not aware that Washington attempted to rid his state of slavery. He also wanted to free his own slaves but state law prevented it. He and Jefferson tried unsuccessfully to change the law.

 

Washington was able to circumvent State laws by freeing his slaves in his will at his death in 1799.

 

From Washington: I can only say that there is not a man living who wishes more sincerely than I do to see a plan adopted for the abolition of it [slavery]; but there is only one proper and effectual mode by which it can be accomplished, and that is by Legislative authority; and this, as far as my suffrage [vote and support] will go, shall never be wanting

(George Washington, The Writings of George Washington, John C. Fitzpatrick, editor (Washington, D. C.: United States Government Printing Office, 1936), Vol. 38, p. 408, to Robert Morris on April 12, 1786.)

 

Most of America's Founders held slavery in contempt and believed it should be abolished.
