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.

With Government Shut Down, Citizens Forced To Interfere In Their Own Lives

U.S.—With the government shutdown in effect, life has felt incomplete for many Americans. “Everything is just too easy—it’s boring,” said restaurant owner Gloria Morgan, “and I realized it’s because we’re missing an essential challenge in life: soulless bureaucrats posing arbitrary rules on us.”

President Trump is in a real difficult point of his presidency, unless he gets the "wall" now he likely will never get it. Using the shut down of the government is a very risky thing for Mr. Trump. This all could backfire if government workers go without pay checks, voters could turn against Mr. Trump and he might get the chance to run in 2020. Air traffic in the US may well soon suffer, tax refunds are being delayed, trash in US parks are not being collected, things will get worse if the ungodly Democrat's don't compromise in some way. Perhaps voters will turn against the Democrats, I hope.

    • Senate Set To Vote On Two Bills Which Could Reopen The Government

      By Henry Rodgers - The U.S. Senate is set to vote on two bills which could reopen the government as both leaders in the Senate agreed to push forward on votes Tuesday afternoon. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer both agreed to put both President Donald Trump’s shutdown bill and the Democratic proposal, which was already passed by the House. Both will go up for vote on the Senate floor Thursday afternoon. Both of these bills would reopen government immediately. However, the bills would need 60 “yes” votes in order to pass, which is unlikely at this point as neither party has the bipartisan support needed. This comes as the government is on its 32nd day of a partial shutdown, as both parties have failed to come to an agreement on border security, a main issue for Trump and Republicans, which they say must be included in a bill in order for the government to reopen. Also a group of Republican and Democratic senators teamed up to put together a letter to send to Trump, asking him to reopen the government Wednesday. McConnell canceled the Senate’s scheduled recess this week to figure out an end to the partial government shutdown.

    • Your Complete Guide To How The Media Tried Ruining The Lives Of Innocent Teenagers

      By Joe Simonson - The media smelled blood when a video seemingly showed a group of teenage boys bullying an older Native American protester. Newer videos showed that the protester had actually approached the students, who were also receiving slurs shouted by a group of radical activists. The media’s misleading reports happened at a time when the students were facing death threats. Just mere days after BuzzFeed News dropped its hotly disputed report accusing President Donald Trump of obstruction of justice, the media decided to pick a new target: a group of teenage Catholic high school boys. On Friday, a group of male students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky found themselves in the middle of a media firestorm after an initial video gave the impression that they had mobbed a Native American protester. Media figures, still reeling from the wave of criticism following the BuzzFeed News fiasco, smelled blood. Sure, the initial video didn’t show the students assaulting anyone, but that didn’t stop reporters, commentators and Hollywood celebrities from focusing on the smirk of a student in the video, which somehow triggered painful memories of lonely prom nights and failed junior varsity sport tryouts. Of course, newer videos showed that the students were completely innocent. They were first taunted by a group of radical activists and the Native American protester approached them. Even with this new information, CNN decided to report the story with the following headline: Facts first, of course. BuzzFeed News Reporter, Anne Helen Petersen, made her colleagues proud by smearing one of the kids in the video and implied he had a future in sexually assaulting women. Petersen even acknowledged that other videos showed a completely different story, but that didn’t stop her diatribe about why a teenage boy’s face “caused a visceral reaction.” Three Washington Post reporters, as National Review’s Michael Brendan Dougherty neatly explained, framed their story on how “a throng of young, mostly white teenage boys, several wearing “Make America Great Again” caps,” surrounded the Native American protestor Nathan Phillips and reported that he “felt threatened.” Even The New York Times seemingly contradicted itself halfway through its own report: The Atlantic’s James Fallows, just hours after the first video was released, wrote a bizarre column comparing the young boys to pro-segregation activists. Fallows seemed to even recognize that other footage might give a more complete picture of the incident, but he chose to brush this off as just “whatever happened.” Even by Monday morning, MSNBC was still tweeting out clips from shows expressing sympathy for Fallows. One women, who purports to have been there, said she “witnessed something that was very aggressive and something that was very frightening.” WATCH: Other reporters, like The New York Times’ Jonathan Capehart, stood in solidarity with Phillips, while others like esteemed tech journalists Kara Swisher said this is exactly why Americans needed that insipid Gillette ad. In fairness, a number of individuals apologized and shared the newer videos demonstrating the students’ innocence (which you can find in this piece by The Daily Caller’s Scott Morefield). Despite these efforts, it’s important to keep in mind that the media’s efforts to tarnish the reputations of these innocent kids was being done while other social media users were encouraging violence and sending death threats. One would think that following the fallout from the disputed BuzzFeed report, the media would take a minute before trying to ruin any more innocent lives, particularly when we’re talking about kids. Yet this whole episode makes one thing clear: Journalists aren’t willing to learn a thing.
