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.

Recommended Posts

Facing its greatest pilot shortage in its history, the Air Force is contemplating the return of enlisted pilots.

I think it was rather high brow to determine to keep the enlisted ranks out of the cockpits anyway.

I agree, as an enlisted man that his only flight training came from his pilots, I flew my Chopper as well as most pilots.

If an enlisted person is able to pilot a plane, then he/she will be in charge of a 40+ million dollar aircraft with enough ordinance to level an entire city. Mind you, most enlisted do not have any college. If enlisted can meet the minimum requirements needed without the Air Force compromising on any standard then I think that is great. I would much rather our military acquire the necessary education from within military institutions rather than in Liberal institutions. I'm assuming that the pilots will still need English and Math etc at the college level before attending Flight schools?

 

God bless,

William

I was in the military and saw far too many college educated idiots to subscribe to the idea that one needs an institution to provide them with anything other than a piece of paper, a flat topped hat and a gown. Education is what you put into it and it is the drive within the person that denotes how well they learn and how far they go.
