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.

Hi.

Hey, I'm Joey. I am 22 and I'm from Poland. I was born in a non-practising Catholic family. Growing up I wasn't very religious but I guess I always understood that God exists. As a teenager, and I am a little ashamed to say this, but I went through the whole "buddhist, new age, occult" phase. Thankfully, God has opened my eyes and turned me away from that ignorant path and now I am very grateful to be a follower of Christ.

 

I thought it might be interesting to talk with other believers from time to time because unfortunately, most of my family and friends are either Catholic or simply don't care. I certainly don't consider myself to be a Catholic, having been made aware of their unbiblical traditions among other things. At this point I don't belong to any specific denomination. I just want to worship God in full accordance with the Scriptures.

 

God bless you all :)
