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.

Muhammad Ali Passing ... A Loss For All Faiths

Recommended Posts

Well I am sure that we have all heard the sad news by now that Muhammad Ali, the champ, has passed away. I just wanted to start a topic where we could all share a little something that we may have remembered about the man or anything really, because he certainly was a historic and rare figure. Just from listening to the radio the last two days I have learned a lot about him that I did not know, and one thing was that he was a man of great faith. His service is to be one of all faiths, which I think is a powerful statement and one that I really like to see.

 

So, does anyone have anything to say about this man? Is anyone here a boxing fan?

    • Passing Through the Wilderness of this World

      by John Newton Dear Sir,
      I make no doubt but you have at times had pleasing reflections upon that promise made to the Israelites, "Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands." Deuteronomy 8:2 They were then in the wilderness, surrounded with difficulties, which were greatly aggravated by their own distrust and perverseness. They had experienced a variety of bitter dispensations, the design of which they could not as yet understand. They frequently lost sight of God's gracious purposes in their favor, and were much discouraged by reason of the difficulty of the way. To compose and animate their minds, Moses here suggests to them, that there was a future happy time drawing near, when their journey and warfare would be finished; that they would soon be put in possession of the promised land, and have rest from all their fears and troubles; and then it would give them pleasure to look back upon what they now found so uneasy to bear: "Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands."

    • OMB to House Dems: Don’t bother passing anything without border wall funding in it

      By R. Mitchell - The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a statement late Thursday informing House Democrats that any bills they pass without funding for border barriers will not make it past the president’s desk. “If either H.R. 21 or H.J. Res. 1 were presented to the President, his advisors would recommend that he veto the bill,” the statement said at its conclusion. The two resolutions provide funding for numerous federal agencies, but nothing for barriers at the border. H.R. 21 provides funding for the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Justice, Interior, State, Transportation and Treasury. H.J. Res. 1 provides appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Both measures fund their respective government agencies through the end of fiscal year 2019. OMB says that the measures are inadequate because of the huge influx of illegal aliens, violent criminals and dangerous drugs crossing the U.S. – Mexico border. “In recent months, the number of people attempting to cross the border illegally has risen to 2,000 per day,” the statement reads. “Based on 2017 data, an average of more than 300 Americans a week were killed in heroin-involved overdoses—and Mexico is the source of nearly 90 percent of wholesale heroin seized by law enforcement in the United States. In FYs 2017 and 2018, Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested close to 211,000 aliens convicted of criminal offenses and an additional 55,000 aliens charged with criminal offenses.” Although clarification from the administration is helpful, it was likely unnecessary. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel publicly stated in December that the Senate would not vote on any measure until Democrats and the president had come to an agreement. H.R. 21 and H.J. Res. 1 do not contain President Trump’s requirement that a border barrier be funded. Since the bill won’t be taken up by the Senate, it’s fate is sealed, but Trump isn’t sitting still. He’s found another way to get a physical barrier constructed at the border. Sorry Nancy and Chuck, [insert sad trombone sound here] he’s building the wall with or without you and there’s nothing you can do about it.
