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.

Misquotes attributed to the Bible?

Recommended Posts

I had a friend tell me that "Neither a borrower nor a lender be" was a Christian quote from the Bible. It's actually from Shakespeare's Hamlet, and Ezekiel 18:7-8 which covers lending disagrees: it basically says to repay your debts and to lend at fair rates rather than profiting at others' expense.

 

Are there any quotes or teachings you have heard people attribute to the Bible that actually come from other sources, and might even contradict the Bible's actual teachings? It seems so common now for people to think they know what is in the Bible, but to not have actually read it.
