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.

Jimmy Carter: Jesus Would ‘Approve’ of Gay Marriage, Some Abortions

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said Sunday that Jesus would approve of gay marriage and certain abortions in an interview with HuffPost Live.

 

Speaking of his faith, Mr. Carter said in his career as a politician he never ran across “any really serious conflicts between my political obligations and my religious faith.”

 

Asked about gay marriage, he replied that it is “no problem with me. I think everybody should have a right to get married regardless of their sex.

 

 

Regarding whether he thinks Jesus would approve of gay marriage, Carter replied “I don’t have any verse in Scripture,” but added, “I believe that Jesus would approve of gay marriage.”

 

“I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else,” he said.

 

The 39th president did add a caveat concerning religious liberty and the right to “opt out” of same-sex marriage.

 

“The only thing I would draw a line on,” he said, is “I wouldn’t be in favor of the government being able to force a local church congregation to perform gay marriages if they didn’t want to. But those two partners should be able to go to a local courthouse or to a different church and get married.”

 

Mr. Carter said that abortion has always been a struggle for him, because he does not believe Jesus would be in favor of most abortions.

 

“I have had a problem with abortion. This has been a long-time problem of mine,” he said.

 

“I have a hard time believing that Jesus would approve abortions unless it was because of rape or incest or if the mother’s life was in danger. So I’ve had that struggle,” he said.

How can Jimmy Carter teach Sunday School, and say he is a Christian, and yet completely disagree with what the Bible says about homosexuality?  I am assuming Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians and other books must be torn out of the chopped up Bible he reads. Perhaps Jimmy does not have a Bible? Then again maybe Jimmy's eyes have been so badly damaged he can't read the Bible?  Better yet the real truth is Jimmy just does not believe the Bible and what it says.

 

Now her is my belief, that no Bible believing, true Christian could possibly be a Democrat! You can't possibly support murdering children of any age, especially in the womb!

Murder has always been against Gods WORD, Abortion is MURDER!

 

Jimmy Carter goes against what my Bible says! How many people has Jimmy taught wrong?

Gee, my dad voted for Jimmy. (Only time he voted democrat.)  I suppose his initial conversion either occurred after that vote or he is dodging flames now.

I was remembering Jimmy and Arafat from 40+ years ago. That is when my respect for him faded away . Never trusted his words after that so his latest is no surprise .
