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.

BC and AD or CE and BCE?

Recommended Posts

 I prefer sticking with BC (before Christ) and AD (anno Domini "in the year of our Lord") as opposed to CE (Common Era) and BCE (before the Common Era) when referring to dates throughout history.

 

Which do you prefer?

I still use B.C. and A.D.  I went to a Christian university in the 80s so that was never a problem for me.  While C.E. today commonly refers to the common era, in the past it also referred meant Christian Era.  Here is a video that does a really good job of explaining the history.

Actually CE is a secular way of pin pointing a certain time in history without mentioning God,Christ or anything having to do with creation . I grew up with AD meaning "After the Death of Christ ". Amazing isn't it ? Has the ACLU contested this considering their anti God attitude against anything having to do with God . I see where they tend to be cautious where Jews enter the picture .     M

Yes (CE) is the outspoken use in denying Jesus Christ and is the spirit of Antichrist in my opinion.

 

The mark (CE) is used for European Union products, any other markings could have been used but they chose (CE) just another example of the spirit of Antichrist in my opinion.
