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.

MAECs

Recommended Posts

Among those who believe that God created the earth there is disagreement as to how and when he did so. Some believe he created it in six literal days, just as the Bible says. They are known as young earth creationists or YECs. Others believe he created the earth gradually over millions of years and used evolution to bring the human race into existence. They are known as old earth creationists or OECs.

 

I have sometimes wondered if there were some who could be called middle age earth creationists or MAECs, and I have come to the conclusion that such a group exists.

 

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (2 Peter 3:8 ESV)

 

On the basis of this verse some believe that each of the days of creation is one thousand years long. Like old earth creationists they ignore the fact that the Bible says each day of creation consisted of an evening and a morning, but they shouldn’t be classed among the old earth creationists because six thousand years is much less than the millions of years OECs believe in. There aren’t many MAECs but they do exist.

I wonder what would bring them to that conclusion, they don't believe the scientific communities million year scale, but they don't believe the plain, literal reading of Genesis either. It's just odd sounding.

I take this part of Scripture as literal.. The Scripture says "there was evening and there was morning,the first day." Genesis 1:5 b ESV. Its very important to let the Bible speak for its self. That which was stated is a 24 houd day and day always means day. IMO.

to one who has lived forever and will remain, what is 1000 years? What is a billion years, for that matter? I used to ponder these questions, but gave them up as fruitless, because the only answer is with God and we need to wait till we are with him to ask them.
