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.

Where are the South Koreans?

Hi William,

 

 South Korea has a large percentage of Christians living there so I am wondering why there aren't more (any?) South Koreans signed on here. Could it be that perhaps the language is a barrier? I taught there for several years and met quite a few Christians who spoke pretty good/good English.

On this subject, I need John Calvin's Christian Institutes translated into Korean. Do you know of any publication which I can buy this from?

 

God bless,

William

Here's our numbers at the end of last month. You can see the amount of people from South Korea which viewed this website:

Hi William,

 

 I searched and couldn't find any. I would think there is one seeing that many South Korean Christians are Presbyterians.

 

 Remember though, my "search" is in a country that blocks quite a few websites with this kind of information. Couple that with the fact that this is the same time of year with what took place exactly 29 years ago in the country I am now --- the internet will be even more difficult to access things.

Thanks for checking brother. I found one and I'm reluctant to give my credit card information to such a poorly built website.

 

God bless,

Perhaps do the translation yourself?

Now that is a lot of work!

I do not read and write Korean anymore (had when young). I'll inquire at my church among the Korean members. I'm looking for a translation for my Korean mother.

 

God bless,

OK William. I sent few emails to a few places. If anything is a go I'll let you know.

Hi William, better safe than sorry they say. 

Have you tried the Goggle free translate site below? It has been very adequate for the smaller amount of translating I need.

I don't know if that's the one you already saw, William.

Thanks Aton9us. That's the site I was referring to as too poorly done to order from. I made one attempt already to purchase from that site but I'll try once more.

 

Followup: Successfully ordered from Hanbooks, it must of been a separate issue having attempted to order on a mobile device. Desktop placed the order successfully.

 

God bless,

William

That's great, William!

 

I spent a year in Korea 78-79 in the Air Force - never read any - spoke a little.

 

I read Calvin's INSTITUTES, and also his COMMENTARY ON HABAKKUK, which I think is maybe best on that book I ever read.

Very nice. I too served in the Air Force. Spent some time in Korea outside the service.
