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.

    Is being hypnotized a sin?

    From what I know of hypnotism, the question of sin connects to the wider question of world view. I would find it sinful knowing what I do about how many people use it. At best, it's like leaving your house unlocked and popping out for a few hours. Sometimes nothing happens at all, sometimes a prankster might pop round and rearrange your furniture (like in the popular hypnosis stage shows) and maybe sometimes a squatter might move in who might be hard to get out. As for me and my house, I lock the door.

    Acts 17 NKJV Addressing the Areopagus 22 Then Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; 23 for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: 24 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. 26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ 29 Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. 30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” 32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked, while others said, “We will hear you again on this matter.” Hunger was created for food, and thirst for water. You are not far from Jesus, @tahaadi I am praying you find the one you are seeking.

    @tahaadi This is one of the best presentations of the Gospel I have come across recently:- God bless you

    It's the middle of the night where I am so the best I can offer is this diagram which seems to set out a Biblical view well. .

    This little video sketch manages to explain an answer that is clearer than many sermons I have listened to!

    @tahaadi I found the following information about Deuteronomy 6:4 interesting... Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one* (*echad). In Hebrew, the word “yachid” indicates numeric oneness, while “echad” indicates compound unity. In the Bible, yachid is never used to describe God. However, in Deuteronomy 6:4, echad is the word used instead. In addition, plural pronouns such as “let US make man in OUR image” are also used in reference to God. If God is triune, these are the words we would expect. As further confirmation, in the Greek (a much more complex language than Hebrew), Jesus quotes the Deuteronomy Scripture in Mark 12:29 and uses the Greek word “hen”, which describes a “unified oneness”, rather than using the word “monos” which means numeric oneness. These examples are simplified for the sake of this discussion, but we can see that Jesus Himself describes God as triune; being one in substance only, but not in person. https://www.calvaryccm.com/devotions/12-09-2015/are-you-echad-or-yachid

    Another interesting angle is from the perspective of Messianic Jews themselves. Here is a clip where a young Messianic Jewish discusses Isaiah 53 (written nearly 700 years before Jesus was born) talks about Him.

    Hi Taha, I have spent quite some time on another forum trying to share the Gospel with Muslims. They are often excellent people who are thirsty to know God! One of the key questions is "Who is Jesus" and on this one the recent film "The Case for Christ", and even moreso, the book may be helpful to you. It would be nice to talk through your questions and ideas with you. God bless!
  9. I found this very interesting, especially taking into account "the trump of God"... 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 King James Version (KJV) 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Cross reference ... Zechariah 9:14 King James Version (KJV) 14 And the Lord shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.

    The "powers that be" frequently use media to promote their messages. I used to love computer games and one recent game (Far Cry 5) had me open mouthed in it's protrayal (and twisting) of conservative Christians, especially those who believe Jesus may well be coming soon. May contain strong language, but worth for noting the current spiritual climate.

    Poll Question: Rapture Yeah or Nay

    I learned a little about prophect from a conversation between Gandalf and Bilbo in "The Hobbit"... Good Morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat. "What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?" "All of them at once," said Bilbo. "And a very fine morning for a pipe of tobacco out of doors, into the bargain.

    Poll Question: Rapture Yeah or Nay

    That would make you Amillennial then? Just curious to understand why people have such annoyance over the concept of a literal Millennium? My belief in it doesn't change anything for me here and now and I'm not feeling the need to debunk Amillennials either - can't we just wait and see?

    Poll Question: Millennialism

    OK - thanks for the link - I guess I'm a Dispensational Pre-Millennialist to the bone 😉
