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.

‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ is a Metaphor for Faith

Not nearly as much love is given to “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” the Peanuts Halloween classic, but you may be surprised to learn that this movie also contains Christian themes.

The words of Linus quoted in the article to not depict Christianity. He says that the Great Pumpkin selects the most sincere pumpkin patch. But God does not select us on the basis of any goodness that we already possess. He chooses us and then makes us good. What Linus says may be an accurate picture of what most people think Christianity teaches but it doesn't show true Christianity.
