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.

I liked Facebook for awhile, but I got really annoyed with it eventually. There's so many catfish and scammers. There were a few groups I liked to hangout in, but they turned into nonsense. I also made a big mistake when I first joined, all my information was set to public without me knowing it, so tons of people got my phone number off of my profile.

 

Every once in a while I'll hop on just to see what some of my old friends are up to.

Well, I guess I am sort of with @Innerfire89 as regards Facebook. I do use it to keep up, since lots of folks I know use it a lot, but I'm not that crazy about it. Actually, if one is skilled in engaging with the popular culture and is a good evangelist, I think it is probably a rich mission field. The platform I like much better is Faithlife, which is geared for churches and Christian groups. All of Faithlife's free Bible study tools are integrated into it. The only drawback is the volume of traffic is a tiny fraction of what FB can command. Here's a group you can check out that will give you a feel for it: https://faithlife.com/christian-social-network/activity

 

Say, @Innerfire89, please define what a FB catfish is.

Catfish are people who get others peoples romantic interest to take advantage of them by asking them for money. Most are Nigerians. They usually send a friend request and a message saying hi. If ask something simple like "how are you" they'll reply with "am fine" even though an American in med school.
