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 you disagree with Romans 1, and don't believe that a person's presuppositions has much bearing on how they interpret evidence?

I totally agree with Romans 1.  I think the fact that people can be given over to their reprobate minds is obvious in this upside down world.

After following the news every day for about a week now (I have family in the Carolinas facing a Hurricane threat), I have been drawn into the banter about Supreme Court nominations and a 2015 White vs Flowers debate on Romans 9 and Socialism and the scandal in the RCC.  I have begun to wonder if the real question might be if there is any intelligent life on Earth?  I cannot shake this nagging fear that Darwin got it backwards and people are evolving into some lower primate. :classic_blink:

No doubt that the "Progressive" movement is actually a moral regression.

    • Scientists Say Life Came from (Alien) Intelligent Design

      Sometimes when I read the science news I just have to laugh. It seems that secular scientists are willing to believe anything, no matter how ridiculous, rather than admit the truth that they know in their hearts. There is a Creator (Romans 1:20–21). Well, in the news recently there was a story about scientists from the UK who reportedly found a “tiny metal circular object” in Earth’s stratosphere, and they are now “suggesting it might be a micro-organism deliberately sent by extraterrestrials to create life on Earth.”   Now, the idea of directed panspermia, that life came from extraterrestrial intelligence, is not a new idea. It’s been suggested many times as a possible way to get around two major problems for the evolutionary origin of life: complexity and time. You see, even if Earth is 4.5 billion years old, as secular scientists say, there isn’t enough time for the incredible complexity of life to have evolved. Even a single cell or supposedly “simple” bacterium is incredibly complex. So the idea of panspermia takes the tricky problem of the origin of life and sticks it somewhere out in the universe. But, of course, this begs the question of where that extraterrestrial life came from!   So these scientists are willing to accept the idea that extraterrestrials—for which there is not one shred of observational evidence for their existence—seeded life on Earth, but they reject the observational evidence seen all around them that clearly points to the Creator and to the history recorded in His Word. And they say that we’re the ones who have blind faith? Actually, if we said something like this, evolutionists would say we were crazy, but when they say things like this they call it science!   Secular scientists scoff and mock at the idea that there is a Creator who made life—they refuse to even consider God as an option. And yet they will accept anything else as a possibility! This perfectly illustrates Romans 1:22: “Professing to be wise, they became fools.” Why do they do this? Because their hearts are blinded to the truth (2 Corinthians 4:4) and they are suppressing the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18). Sadly, instead of using science to glorify God as they learn more about what He has made, secular scientists are inventing myths and stories so they can escape the truth that we are created and therefore accountable to God for our actions—and we are sinners in need of salvation.   Life wasn’t seeded on Earth by extraterrestrials. There is no need to apply to outlandish ideas for how life got here when the answer is clear from the eyewitness Creator—all life was designed, fully formed and functioning, by God at the very beginning.   I encourage you to be bold in telling others about the Creator who fashioned and made them and who came to Earth to die on the Cross and be raised from the dead to give us salvation. And pray that people will put their faith and trust in Christ, not in some extraterrestrial seeding life on Earth.   Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying, Ken Ham
