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.

They Must Change The Laws

Recommended Posts

The current gun ownership and use laws seem not to be effective. Unless the laws are changed, then we should expect more shooting incidents which will claim a lot of lives. I see no reason for citizens to have rights to own and use guns. Recent shootings which may or may not be linked to terrorism are just a signal of what is to come. This issue should not be made to be a political issue since it affects everybody. Some shootings have been linked to drug use and others linked to terrorist acts. We have witnessed shootings in schools whereby children have lost lives. The US must ensure that everybody is safe from such incidents.

I do, the second amendment. The right to protect myself and my family. The right not to have my guns (a law abiding citizen) taken by the government because of the crimes of others.

Actually, the laws should be enforced as originally written, not the watered down, heavily interpreted versions we have now. That really is the biggest problem with our current government. They think the system is broken because of the laws. The system is broken because of the people who are supposed to be enforcing the laws.

Exactly. The FBI knew about Mateen before Orlando. The gun store owner even called the FBI and told them he wanted to purchase body armor and large amounts of ammunition.

Now that is another thing. What could he possibly have wanted body armor and ammunition other than to do something horrific? That really should be the call of the gun store owner. He should have a responsibility to prevent someone like this from obtaining that stuff from his store, even if he has a slight inkling the guy might do something off with it.

The owner did not sell him body armor (I believe the store does not even carry body armor) and that is what prompted him to call the FBI.

The legal gun owners in the United States are NOT the problem here. We have around 55 million gunowners, and only a few of these shootings, and almost all of the shootings like this last one have been done by someone who is in some way affiliated with a terrorist group, or wants to be part of one.

Terrorists don't care whether their weapons are legal ones or not; so if the kinds of weapons that they want to use are not available legally, then they will just get those same weapons illegally.

 

What needs to be dealt with are the criminals and the terrorist cells here, and not the legal gun owners.

Making drugs illegal has done nothing to stop the sale of those drugs, and making guns illegal is not going to stop terrorists from shooting people, either.

There are actually quite a few times where a similar shooting has been stopped immediately, just because there was an armed citizen there to stop the criminal from killing people; but those stories are not theones which make headlines, obviously.

They do not commit these horrible shootings in gun-free zoness for no reason, folks !

Would you believe that some people are actually putting a special colored light on their front porch to announce that their home is a gun-free home ?

What better way could you tell a thief that this place is safe to rob and steal and the owners are defenseless !

To be honest, I don't think changing the laws will have much of an effect. Anyone who can buy a 3D printer can print a gun. So tech has made it a lot easier for the bad guys to get guns. Though owning a 3D printed gun is illegal I doubt that would stop terrorists from using these guns if they are the only ones they can obtain. The focus should be on fighting Islam/radical Islam and closely monitoring hate groups.

But I am afraid that the Americans on power (claimed being Christian) don't agree with you ;)

Please don't tell me you still don't know that one of the closest allies to the US System happens to be the fanatic radical Islamist Royal family of Saudi Arabia?

This USA ally applies, openly and for more than 80 years so far, on their people Al-Sharia of Al-Qaeda!

I mean, I would be grateful if you explain this dilemma. Thank you.

Well I think that most people can agree on one thing, and that is that something needs to be done. Of course you are going to get the arguments from both sides on whatever issue that you bring up, and we know this so there is really no surprise there. Whether it be through the legal system or whatever other way - I am having trouble thinking of other options - this is too much violence and it needs to stop. I am curious to see where the debate goes, and I hope it is not just another flash in the pan.

The problem isn't owning guns. In a healthy society, guns are a necessary precaution against the government and vandals. So basically gathering dust in a safe. I do think that there should be more training to prevent people from absentmindedly keeping their gun in a purse or on a bed side table for even a second when they have kids. There have been so many accidents where kids accidentally shot themselves or someone with a gun. But they do background checks to get a gun and that doesn't stop people from doing bad things. The problem isn't the gun it's the person holding the gun. I lived in a small town where during hunting season, almost everyone had guns in holsters and in their windows. And it never made me feel unsafe because I knew they had grown up knowing the safety precautions and proper training. But in the city, you get stupid people who have them just randomly in their drawers or out in the open and I feel unsafe even if there is only one because they don't treat it with respect. So I agree with more training on safety, but not more laws restricting getting a gun. Also more gun laws doesn't equal a safer environment.

As long the business of producing/trading guns/weapons is safe and protected by laws (not just in America), the reasons for which its products are sold are irrelevant.

On the other hand, artificial wars and bloody conflicts have to be created, from time to time and in this or that region, in order for this business to keep flourishing. After the Hollywood perfect crime on 9/11/2001, spreading terror became rather easy to do and even justified in the daily episodes of the International Endless Series "War on Terror" that we watch for 15 years so far..

 

Please note that only 'rare' people in the world who live much like Jesus Christ did don't need using guns (or alike) for self-defence against other humans... It happened that I am one of them.

Without any proof you're presenting yourself as a false witness committing some pretty vicious slander. Do you have any proof that the war on terror was committed for profit? And you do realize that 9/11 was not committed by violent gun acts but by "kamakazi" style suicidal terrorist? Do you think we should ban all commercial flights or even airlines? Did you catch the article some two weeks ago when the knife wielding Muslim murdered 30-40 people in China? Should knives now be banned too?

 

I'm trying to understand your logic here, but our forefathers warned us of Islam deeming its ideology as incompatible with the West: https://www.christforums.org/forum/g...heir-own-words

I am sorry for disappointing you, William :(

 

If Jesus had a chance to prove He wasn't a criminal person as accused by the ancient Honourable Just Jewish leaders, it would be possible, not just for me but for many professional American engineers I met on the internet, to prove (by solid scientific proofs besides other means) that the tragedy of 9/11/2001 is actually a horrible Hollywood 'perfect' crime in which 'ALL' systems (hence not just the US one) in the world are involved, directly or indirectly (yes, even the Syrian one). So you can be sure that whatever you (and most of the world) are made to believe has to be true because its is protected by all men on power in the world. So please don't worry ;)

 

How many here heard of the millions of kids who were raised in fear in today's Israel since its creation; created a few years after destroying Europe in WW2 (destroyed for the glory of... you guess). Most of them, when adult, had no choice but to be fanatic radical believers to the point they can slaughter the demon in a baby (as they were taught) if he is not Jewish and his parents had properties on the Promised Land. So how could the world hear of the today's kids (also by millions) who are raised after the great success on 9/11/2001 to play the terrorists in the "War on Terror" series... since year 2010?

 

And since almost all ordinary people have no idea of what was planned against them by their men on power, they won't hear of what is scheduled for the next decades in this famous series "War on Terror". I am afraid that Europe will be 're-destroyed' in the 20's :( Millions of European kids were already prepared to play the 9/11 terrorists in this beautiful continent. The same is prepared against the Chinese people but I am not sure if they will be hit by Terror (continuous as in the Arab Spring) also in the 20's or it will be postponed to the after next decade (30's). After all, Obama was very clear on this point that the great nations (mainly USA and Russia) will not be able defeating Al-Qaeda (known now as ISIS) before many decades... right? Now you know why Obama was instructed to say this ;)

 

Therefore, the only thing that ordinary persons in the world (the targets in the "War on Terror" endless series) can do is to wish each other... whatever is good.

    • Top Democrat On New Climate Change Panel Lays Out Her First Priority. It’s Not Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’

      By Michael Bastasch - The House Democrat tapped to chair the new climate change panel previewed her first big legislative pushes, and it’s not the “Green New Deal” being pushed by the progressive wing of her party. The Select Committee on the Climate Crisis will push for legislation on fuel economy standards “right off the bat,” the chairwoman, Florida Rep. Kathy Castor, said in an interview published Thursday. “Right off the bat, we will tackle fuel economy standards, make sure the Commerce Committee and the (Transportation and Infrastructure Committee) are focused on that,” Castor told USA Today. “The Financial Services Committee has to do a flood insurance reform bill. We will be involved in that as well,” Castor said. Castor’s likely goal is to shepherd legislation to undo the Trump administration’s rolling back of Obama-era fuel economy standards that were meant to cut carbon dioxide emissions. Flood insurance reform is a goal of Democrats worried about damaging sea level rise. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the creation of a special House climate committee in December. The committee doesn’t have the authority to introduce legislation or issue subpoenas, much to the chagrin of “Green New Deal” supporters. More than 40 House Democrats back the “Green New Deal” championed by New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which calls for a climate committee to draft sweeping climate legislation. That committee would be responsible for drafting legislation to move the U.S. to 100 percent renewable energy over a 10-year period and put in place a slew of social welfare programs, including universal health care and job guarantees. Ocasio-Cortez proposed financing her climate agenda by raising top marginal tax rates as high as 70 percent, but even substantially higher income taxes wouldn’t likely yield the trillions of dollars needed to finance a Green New Deal. Environmentalists, Democratic influencers and 2020 presidential hopefuls, including Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders and New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, support the Green New Deal proposal. However, not all Democrats support the Green New Deal, including New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone, chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. Pallone and other committee chairs worry a Green New Deal panel would only delay getting climate legislation to the floor. Pallone also questioned whether or not the ultimate goal of the Green New Deal — a 100 percent renewable-powered economy — is even feasible. “This is something that we should take a look at, but some of it may not be technologically or politically feasible,” Pallone said in a radio interview Tuesday. “I don’t want to just lay a groundwork for something that might happen in five or ten years and just talk about it. I want to actually get things done,” Pallone said. “So we kind of have to convince them to take some action on climate even though they may deny it.” Follow Michael on Facebook and Twitter

    • RNC Committeeman Calls For Rule Change To Protect Trump From 2020 Primary Challenger

      By Henry Rodgers - A Republican National Committee (RNC) committeeman sent an email out to fellow members asking for an amendment to existing rules which would guarantee President Donald Trump become the presumptive GOP nominee in 2020 Wednesday. RNC National Committeeman for the Virgin Islands, Jevon O.A. Williams, sent the email to RNC members, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, just hours after The Washington Post published an op-ed by Utah Republican Senator-elect Mitt Romney, which bashed Trump and his presidency. Williams said in order to close “loopholes in the re-nomination campaign” the RNC should change the rules at their winter meeting in January, making Trump the Republican nominee, so that no one in the party could run against him in the 2020 presidential campaign. “Imagine my surprise when I read the junior senator-elect from Utah’s unprecedented rebuke of President Donald J. Trump in an op-ed on the pages of The Washington Post that ran before he was even sworn into office. I couldn’t believe this was coming from our party’s 2012 nominee, who, despite differences in politics, still professes to be a Republican. With Republicans like him who needs Democrats,” Williams said in the email to RNC members. Williams said the rules in place do not take into account an incumbent president running for re-election, saying the proposed resolution would “declare” him the 2020 Republican presidential nominee. “I am asking for your support to take the unprecedented step of amending the rules to close loopholes in the re-nomination campaign, including Rule 40. These rules, as I read them and has been reported in the press, didn’t take into account an incumbent president running for re-election,” Williams continued. “Beyond a rules amendment, I also ask for your support of a resolution declaring the RNC’s unanimous and unequivocal endorsement of President Trump for re-nomination. This resolution would also declare him the presumptive nominee in 2020. I intend for both of these items to be acted upon at the winter meeting later this month, including, if necessary, by suspending the rules to take up this business,” he concluded. Hours later, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Romney’s niece, responded to his op-ed which criticized Trump, saying his “attack” in the op-ed is “disappointing and unproductive.” Trump responded to the op-ed early Wednesday morning, saying he hope Romney won’t be a “Flake” in the Senate, also saying “I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!” Romney will be sworn in as the next senator from Utah Thursday.

    • 2018 Saw A Global Revolt Against Climate Change Policies

      By Michael Bastasch - 2018 saw a global revolt against policies aimed at fighting global warming Australia, Canada, France and the U.S. have all seen push back against global warming policies That included weeks of riots in France against planned carbon tax increases Despite increasingly apocalyptic warnings from U.N. officials, the past year has seen a number of high-profile defeats for policies aimed at fighting global warming. Politicians and voters pushed back at attempts to raise energy prices as part of the climate crusade. It started in June with election of Ontario Premier Doug Ford. Ontario residents overwhelmingly voted Ford’s conservative coalition into power on a platform that included axing the Canadian province’s cap-and-trade program. Ford said his first priority upon taking office would be to “cancel the Liberal cap-and-trade carbon tax.” Ford then joined a legal challenge led by Saskatchewan against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s policy of a central government-imposed carbon tax on provinces that don’t have their own. Carbon tax opponents called Trudeau’s plan an attempt to “use the new tax to further redistribute income, which will increase the costs of this tax to the economy.” Roughly ten thousands miles away in Australia another revolt was brewing. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull saw his power base crumble within days of failing to pass a bill aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Turnbull’s so-called National Energy Guarantee to reduce energy sector emissions was opposed by a group of conservative members of Parliament led by former Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Sensing danger, Turnbull tried to delay the vote on his climate bill, but it was too late. Turnbull stepped down in late August, and has since been replaced by Scott Morrison. Back in the U.S., $45 million was being pumped into the battle over a Washington state carbon tax ballot measure. Democratic Governor Jay Inslee, who has 2020 presidential ambitions, supported the measure, though refiners and other opponents outspent carbon tax supporters. The Inslee-backed measure called for taxing carbon dioxide emissions at $15 a ton in 2020, which will increase at $2 a year above the rate of inflation until the state meets its emissions goals. However, Washington voters rejected the carbon tax measure in the November election, despite Inslee’s support. It was the second time in two years that Washington voters rejected a carbon tax ballot initiative. The November elections also saw the defeat of a group of Republican lawmakers in the House Climate Solutions Caucus. Among those defeated was caucus co-chair Florida GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo, who introduced carbon tax legislation in July. Curbelo’s legislation called for a $23 per ton carbon tax that would primarily fund the Highway Trust Fund. Despite this, environmentalists funneled money to his Democratic challenger Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. Shortly after the U.S. elections it became clear trouble was brewing across the Atlantic in France. French President Emmanuel Macron’s economic reforms were not winning over much of the population, including planned fuel tax increases. Macron spent years styling himself as a staunch supporter of efforts to tackle global warming, including the Paris Agreement. Indeed, raising taxes on diesel and gasoline was part of Macron’s plan to meet France’s Paris accord pledge. It backfired. Angered over the new carbon taxes on fuel, tens of thousands of protesters, called “yellow vests” for the vests drivers are required to have in their cars, took to the streets calling for an end to the taxes and for Macron to resign. Macron initially resisted, arguing France needed to do more to address global warming, but the French government eventually capitulated in December and scrapped the planned tax increases. Macron also said he’d increase the minimum wage and begged companies to raise salaries, if possible. Macron’s backpedaling on climate policy couldn’t have come at a worse time for the climate-conscious president. The United Nations’ annual climate summit was being held in Poland as Macron conceded to the “yellow vests.” France’s carbon tax revolts sent a clear message to Democratic lawmakers across the Atlantic Ocean. Democrats will take control of the House in 2019 and want to make global warming a central part of their agenda. Democrats and even environmentalists distanced themselves from carbon taxes in the wake of French riots. However, far-left Democrats are pushing “Green New Deal” legislation, which could become the largest expansion of government in decades.

    • Elizabeth Warren Ignites More 2020 Speculation With Twitter Name Change

      By Molly Prince - Sen. Elizabeth Warren changed the name of her campaign Twitter account on Saturday night reigniting speculation that the Massachusetts senator has plans to launch a bid for the presidency in 2020. @CongressChanges, a twitter bot that monitors any changes to congressmen’s twitter accounts, tweeted that Warren had re-named her account @ewarren. Prior to the change, the account was @elizabethforma, a nod to her home state of Massachusetts. Warren, who said in June that she would not be running for president, seemingly flipped on her word and announced less than three months later that she would take a “hard look” at launching a presidential campaign following the midterms. During an interview leading up to her November election, Warren refused to commit to serving her full term in the Senate if re-elected. The Massachusetts senator has also been quietly shopping for office space in the Boston-area to headquarter her possible presidential campaign, according to a report earlier in December. The list of Democratic senators who are mulling over their own challenge to Trump in 2020 is continuing to grow. Following midterm elections, Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota both announced they are considering a presidential run. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York acknowledged that she may be reneging on her promise to serve out her six-year Senate term if she runs and is elected to the position. Other Democratic senators who are rumored to be planning a presidential run include: Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California. Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana predicted that as many as “13 or 14” senators could end up running. Warren’s office did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    • FCC’s Last-Minute Rule Change Saves Californians From Paying Text Tax

      By Chris White - California regulators are giving up on a plan to tax citizens’ text messages after the Federal Communications Commission made a rule change effectively preventing such taxes. The California Public Utilities Commission expressed interest in adding a tax to text messages to fund programs upping connectivity in some underserved areas. The FCC’s Dec. 12 rule classifies text messages as an “information service” rather than a “telecommunications service.” Telecommunications services are subject to the collection of surcharges and small fees to support programs that subsidize services for rural parts of California. Proponents argue that text messaging uses the same cell towers as phone calls but do not face similar fees – the problem is magnified as text messages are replacing phone calls as the dominant form of communication. The text tax idea faced widespread opposition, particularly from industry trade groups representing the likes of Sprint and T-Mobile. Some opponents say such a tax would hit the poor and middle class especially hard. “Trying to tax this very wide population would especially hit young people and poor people,” Jim Wunderman, president and CEO of the Bay Area Council, a California business advocacy group, said in a Dec. 12 interview with reporters. “Their goal is to make money to help the poor, at the same time it’s charging low-income people.” Regulators were also seeking to retroactively tax users for the last five years. Apps like Facebook’s Messenger or WhatsApp, Google’s Hangouts and other others would have been exempt from the tax. Referred to as “over the top” services, or OTT, these apps use the internet to deliver their messages rather than through traditional telecommunication services. CPUC was criticized in November for floating the possibility of bailing out a public utility company some believe is responsible for a rash of wildfires. The regulatory agency pledged a review of Pacific Gas & Electric Co., as well as allowing the company to pass costs associated with liabilities from the Woolsey Fire and Camp Fires. The FCC has not yet responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about the nature of the rule change or whether CPUC’s idea had a role in the agency’s decision.
