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.

What Piper as said is absolutely true. I know personally several black men who have had the Police and Sheriff departments pull them over while driving and asked to step out, had vehicle searches, was frisked, and they found nothing, all this taking up to one hour. The bad thing was one man was late to a meeting where he was involved to be there on time. Several men said this was often a repeated thing.

 

The Law enforcement do this especially when a black person is driving a nice modern vehicle, thinking the vehicle must be stolen. Even when shopping at a grocery store when shopping managers watch block people more closely, even when paying with a check they examine things more closely. I also was told that when looking for a place to live for black and Mexican people real estate people do discriminate and take then to lower class housing. I could list more things but I think you know what Piper has said is true.

 

I do agree with President Trump on stopping any more Muslims into the USA. I also think those kids that are here illegally by parents who brought then here, should have a way to become citizens. However they should have to meet requirements, speak and write English, serve either three years in the Military, or do some public work job for three years, and pass a test on the US Constitution like all high-schools require for Graduation. If they do not want to do this then return them to wher their home land is.
