Christian Fellowship

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.

  1. I think it is good to pray for unsaved people to believe in Christ while they are still alive. We never know who will be converted to Christ even in their dying minute. We are even to pray for our enemies.

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    There are others where it is implied.

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    I know the context matters but the chapters and verses provided imply animals in heaven. Not all of them do but many of them do.

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    There are a number of chapters and verses in the link I provided. Some of them do not really belong though but many do.

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    LOL....Yeah, I know some of the verses do not belong. I posted it because it does have some verses which do imply animals in heaven. That's right. In some sections.

    Yeah, Revelation literalistically doesn't work. Yeah, no doubt about it, that would be a tough task for anyone.

    Do dogs go to heaven? | Bibleinfo.com WWW.BIBLEINFO.COM The topic of animals and pets going to heaven received extra attention when Pope Francis was mistakenly quoted as saying, “Paradise is open to all God's creatures.” However, these words about pets were actually spoken...

    I see. That wasn't my intent and I repented for the sin.

    Merry Christmas.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    I wasn't aware that was a sin. Nobody ever told me that before. I believe you but what are your Scriptural references? Merry Christmas by the way!

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    Just a simple prayer for the lost and the wicked. A prayer for mercy on their souls.
  14. CDF47

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    Praying for mercy for them is not a prayer against God's will though.
  15. CDF47

    Is Annihilationism Biblical?

    I have a question for everyone. Do you think it is OK to pray for annihilation rather than eternal conscious torment? I have prayed for annihilation to be the case a number of times. I pray for mercy on the lost and wicked.
