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.

    Objections to Christianity

    Matthew 25:46 and Revelation 14:9-11; 20:10, 15 are clear that the lake of fire is real. I think it is healthy to have a negative concept about falling into Niagara Falls.

    Objections to Christianity

    When it comes to the big issues, we really do know. God has left us His testimony. He didn't leave us to wander in uncertainty. The claims of Christ are true and life changing. He taught He was God and proved this via His resurrection. The New Testament is an historically credible account of these events.

    Objections to Christianity

    Hello MNR, It's rather difficult to answer that question. If they truly believe in the Jesus of the Bible then they have everlasting life. But if a Mormon believes in the Mormon Jesus then no, they do not have everlasting life. Believing in Jesus (Acts 22:19) entails praying to Jesus (Acts 9:14). Mormons forbid praying to Jesus. And prayer is properly due unto God alone. In this Catholics (their teachings) violate this in that they pray to Mary and other "saints."
  5. At 54:33 John Samson mentioned Nathan Busentiz concerning, "Did Constantine Invent the Trinity?" Here is the article: https://www.tms.edu/m/msj24l.pdf

    Hell ExC, Catholics pray to Mary and other "saints." This is a terrible sin. For none but God alone is to be worshiped. In terms of the Muslims they do not worship the same Judaic God as me (a Christian) for they deny the Lord Jesus is God. If they told me the Quran is inspired from God then I would respond by saying that it can not be because the Bible teaches the Lord Jesus is God and that God is Triune.

    Gnostic Christian

    I recognized the user name from a discussion forum a few years back. I can't remember which one, but from what I can remember this individual caused some problems. The username I think was an attack on Christ - Christ being the "I am" (John 8:58) and this person believes they are "greater."

  9. Why is the truth more disturbing if they got the kids out alive?
  10. That's true. Many of their failed policies are like a plague that infects every other state where the go.
  11. I told one of my relatives that I had a feeling someone would do something stupid with this. Then it happened: https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2019/01/12/police-utah-teen-caused-car-accident-playing-bird-box-challenge/

    Henotheism

    henotheism: the worship of one god without denying the existence of other gods. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/henotheism See also monolatry. The Bible teaches that there is only one true God (Deuteronomy 6:4; John 17:3). Deuteronomy 12:2 teaches that the nations have their 'gods' and that the Israelites were not to worship them (12:30). The other gods that people worship are ontologically not God (Jeremiah 16:20; Galatians 4:8). In fact, Satan is referred to as "god" (2 Corinthians 4:4), but he and all others are only gods in the sense that worship is inappropriately rendered unto them. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    How can the trinity be one God?

    Which doesn't detract at all from Thomas affirming that the Lord Jesus is his God.
  14. Albert Barnes: This does not mean that no one had Gone to heaven or had been saved, for Enoch and Elijah had been borne there (Genesis 5:24; compare Hebrews 11:5; 2 Kings 2:11); and Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and others were there: but it means that no one had ascended and “returned,” so as to be qualified to speak of the things there. https://www.studylight.org/commentaries/bnb/john-3.html
