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.

About Goldstein

  1. It's an interesting question - What is restraining the man of sin from being established - at 2 Thess 2:6 ? Several years ago I got interested in this question and studied it a lot. The answer seems to be that TIME is the restrainer, that it wasn't yet the right TIME for the "wicked one" when Paul wrote his 2nd letter to the Thessalonians. The GNT version of 2 Thess 2:6 below seems a bit more clear on this than some of the other versions - 2 Thess 2:6 GNT - Yet there is something that keeps this from happening now, and you know what it is. At the proper time, then, the Wicked One will appear. In other words, the events of the past 2000 years had to play out first in order to lead up to the TIME of the 3rd temple to be built in Jerusalem on the temple mount so that the "Wicked One" can be set up there and claim to be God - see Temple Mount
  2. Egypt, Libya, and Sudan were attacked and overthrown in 2011 as was prophesied for the time of the end by the prophet Daniel over 2500 years ago. Moab, Edom, and Ammon in what is now known as Jordan were unharmed as nations around them fell, just as Daniel prophesied. We are at the point between Daniel 11:44 and Dan 12:1 per this link - https://is.gd/Prophecy_for_Now
