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.

Greetings ChristForums.org,

 

According to my profile I joined these forums  on Friday 10/26/2018 at 07:38 pm not sure what time zone that refers to? (my current time zone is UTC +9). However, I have yet to introduce to myself, so what follows is my brief introduction:

 

The user name I use on these forums Ben Asher is a pen-name or a pseudonym (my real name is Brian k. Mitchell). I am interested in Biblical philology, hermeneutics, various models of confessional interpretation, language acquisition.

 

I look forward to conversing, exchanging ideas, and  Koinonia with you!

Welcome Brian,

 

The time zone for your account should be automatically set by the site using your location. If you're behind a proxy etc the time offset could be off.

 

God bless,

G'day Brian,

 

I'm especially looking forward to your engagements on hermeneutics.

 

If you don't mind me asking what kinda credentials or education do you have in your various interests?

 

Also, on a personal note where are you from? I note that you write English rather well. Are you from an English speaking country or were born and raised in Japan etc? What church if any are you a member? I ask this because you selected "Christian" as your denomination which is rather generalized.

 

God bless,

William

Welcome brother.  I, only recently received my copy of the Hallelujah Scriptures, translated, preserving the original names.  I left school in the nineth grade and I'm still busy grasping the Word of YHWH attempting to always follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Please pardon me for the belated response.

 

I am a bit flabbergasted as I hadn't anticipated the responses to my brief self-introduction nor for that matter the very gracious warm welcome I received from everyone who has posted to this thread thus far. Thank you, Becky, Deade, William, CDF47, GaoLu, and Bill Taylor for welcoming me to these forums. I look forward to learning from and fellowship with all of you, soon.

I do not mind at all. I will send you a PM, soon.

Gratia vobis et pax a Deo Patre nostro et Domino Iesu Christo

Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
