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.

    • What’s the Difference Between Heresy and Orthodoxy?

    • Orthodox, Heterodox and Heresy

      I recently screwed up. Someone asked a simple, direct question and I gave a simple, direct answer to the best of my understanding. A brother in Christ was hurt by my answer and, ultimately, I discovered that my answer was probably wrong because I was operating from some flawed definitions of words.
