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.

    So did I. Peace.

    Yes, and possibly misinterpreting him by making revelation the subject of the verb "was seen".

    Date of Revelation

    I'm new to posting here (for some reason I started receiving emails--seems I've been signed up a year) and seeing how far this thread has been allowed to stray from the original post just makes me wonder what the point is. The interpretation of Rev and Matt 24 and the arguments to and against preterism are very important, but they can have their own threads.

    You are an admin and you are making this about preterism instead of about the dating of Revelation? Isn't your job to insure people don't wreck and destroy threads with their own pet obsessions?

    If we break this down a bit: Irenaeus wasn't a student of Polycarp. It is questionable whether he claimed that Revelation was seen in John's day. Clement of Alexandria doesn't mention Domitian. Victorinus doesn't agree with Eusebius that John was banished late in Domitian's reign. Jerome was following Eusebius. So where is the strong evidence?

    Does this persuade you absolutely?

    Date of Revelation

    The evidence he presents in his post directly addresses it.
  8. justasking

    Was he correct? Is there other better evidence that goes against him?
