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.

John Piper: The preacher and author said he was “deeply sorry” for eking the slightest pleasure out of watching the worldly sport.

 

This sounds ridiculous to me to a degree where I question the validity of the story. Maybe the statement is out of context.

... or maybe I am too ignorant or depraved to have any idea why Piper would feel contrite for this action. It would suck to have Piper as a father watching my little league game or at my graduation or my wedding. :RpS_confused:

 

The second half was amazing ... I only watched it because my son is a Vikings fan. Did I just sin, I think not! LOL

Hi Ff, when you read an article here that seems ridiculous (like this one clearly does), be sure to check out which board you are on. In this case it's the "Christian Satire" board :RpS_smile:

Ah, I see. Thank you. I usually am accused of being gullible but not stupid; this time I was stupid but not gullible. :)

These Babylonian Bee articles always ring true to one degree or another, so I don't believe you were stupid or gullible in this case. Here are two of my favorites from them, one, from the time of the Houston disaster last year, is already considered a classic http://babylonbee.com/news/joel-oste...best-life-now/ and the other followed the signing and publishing of The Nashville Statement http://babylonbee.com/news/bee-expla...lle-statement/ (the latter being much heavier than usual on both truth and cynicism, well, compared to most of their articles anyway).

 

Enjoy :RpS_smile:

Perhaps he could say he was enjoying the Minneapolis Miracle. Very clever minds at the Bee

Satire is humorous because it reveals truth. The truth is, Piper is a bit too sanctified for his own good.
