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.

Altar Call - Calvinist

[h=1]Calvinist Comes Forward During Altar Call To Correct Pastor’s Theology[/h] [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","data-attachmentid":64225}[/ATTACH]

 

TAMPA, FL—While visiting his parents’ church over the weekend, local Calvinist Maurice Johnson reportedly came forward for the altar call in order to bluntly confront the pastor for his “obviously Arminian” stance on salvation.

 

As the organist played “Softly and Tenderly” one last time, Johnson solemnly rose from his seat near the back, walked to the front of the church, and began to debate the pastor on the “man-centered theology” apparent in his altar call presentation, according to witnesses.

 

“One last chance for people to come forward. Anyone at all. God is calling you today. He desires for all men to be saved,” the pastor said quietly before finally prompting Johnson to come forward, as he was unable to take any more of the homily that centered on man’s choosing God rather than the other way around.

 

“Who do you think you are? What’s wrong with you people?” Johnson reportedly growled as he arrived at the front of the church, taking the pastor off-guard. “I don’t know why you’re smiling, I’m talking about you!”

 

At publishing time, Johnson had spent several hours laying out a Calvinist view of soteriology before finally leading the pastor in a prayer to receive the doctrines of grace.

The funny thing is I could see that happening. Actually witnessed something of a similar nature when I had first come to the doctrines of grace. At a Bible church I was attending at the time there was an admixture of Arminian and Reformed. The teacher of the class tended toward Arminianism and a friend of mine was a Reformed pastor who asked a question which was bound to stir up strife(which it did). Needless to say it was not very edifying. I must confess being new to the faith I received more enjoyment than I would now looking at these matters from a mature age and viewpoint.
