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.

My friends, this is what we voted for. No, not most of us. But one bad apple did spoil the whole cart didn't it. Anyways, I posted this under current events. This just blows my mind. You see, according to the elitists, we are too stupid to manage our own lives. This is antichrist stuff. Here and now. More gov't. Why do you think common core is being shove down our throats? Socialism. It does not agree with GOD nor does it want Him. Got a problem? Pop a pill and get on board. Lenin is credited for calling us "useful idiots". Yessir, vote Liberal. Progressive. Ever heard of Norman Thomas?

Hi Even So, I'm anything but a fan of our president, but I'm fairly certain he did not mean what that video excerpt implies (and even if he did, he would never admit it publicly ;)). Here is the transcript from that section of his speech so it can be read in context.

 

Leaders and dignitaries of the European Union, representatives of our NATO alliance, distinguished guests, we meet here at a moment of testing for Europe and the United States and for the international order that we have worked for generations to build. Throughout human history, societies have grappled with fundamental questions of how to organize themselves, the proper relationship between the individual and the state, the best means to resolve the inevitable conflicts between states.

 

And it was here in Europe, through centuries of struggle, through war and enlightenment, repression and revolution, that a particular set of ideals began to emerge, the belief that through conscience and free will, each of us has the right to live as we choose, the belief that power is derived from the consent of the governed and that laws and institutions should be established to protect that understanding.

 

And those ideas eventually inspired a band of colonialists across an ocean, and they wrote them into the founding documents that still guide America today, including the simple truth that all men, and women, are created equal.

 

But those ideals have also been tested, here in Europe and around the world. Those ideals have often been threatened by an older, more traditional view of power. This alternative vision argues that ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign. Often this alternative vision roots itself in the notion that by virtue of race or faith or ethnicity, some are inherently superior to others and that individual identity must be defined by us versus them, or that national greatness must flow not by what people stand for, but what they are against.

It is poorly written to be sure, but it seems to me that he is saying that the old forms of power are the ones that repress and force individual surrender to an all-powerful sovereign, yes?

 

Yours and His,

David

Thanks St. I was wondering what the context may be. It does not make me feel any better. I have read it over and it is all psycho babble to me. I read this as championing gay rights once again..

 

There are many key phrases here. I guess we can read too much into anything, but we ain't stoopit either. Well at leastin y'all ain't.

 

including the simple truth that all men, and women, are created equal.
pro lgbtq

 

This alternative vision argues that ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign.
Are you kidding? And who would that be, per say? (Dunno if per say fit, just like it there) Ya see, there is gonna be one smooth talker coming on the scene who is gonna feed us these verbal Twinkies and we are gonna eat them all up.

 

Those ideals have often been threatened by an older, more traditional view of power
The power of GOD. Judaeo-Christian that this country was founded on. We fall, so goes the world.

 

societies have grappled with fundamental questions of how to organize themselves
So we all need to be of one thought, Or order.

 

each of us has the right to live as we choose, the belief that power is derived from the consent of the governed
What about Christians? The govt is turning on us. And the end times gov before JESUS comes is coming after us big time. It's happenng and we all see it.

 

moment of testing for Europe and the United States and for the international order
There is that scary word order again.

 

national greatness must flow not by what people stand for, but what they are against
Say what? So what is that crud? I would say he is definitely pro world. And we are not of this world are we? No sirs and madams. The gov will be socialistic and socialism does not want GOD. To love the world is to be at enmity with GOD. That would make our president anti CHRIST. Not the, just an.

 

Call me paranoid, but i am sounding the alarm. What is going on must not be ignored. Even so, come LORD JESUS!

 

Thanks again St. Worm. Gave me a chance to really take a hard look at it. Now i really, really don't like it.

Actually world leaders wouldn't openly call for a New World Order. What they say in public is for the "sheeple" to hoodwink them but they can drop subtle hints . . . however in closed door meetings they can openly talk about the NWO and what should be done to make it a reality. I've never trusted politicians and doubt I ever will so whatever they say to assure people that everything is alright isn't what they really want. Makes me believe that they actually are working for another master, not the people they are supposed to serve.

Hi 'Even So',

Please be as tolerant and kind as you are able to those who believe somewhat differently from yourself.

I am both 'liberal and progressive' in my faith, yet I remain tolerant and kindly disposed towards those who are 'fundamentally rigid' (whether Catholic or Protestant).

Well I apologize if I offended you, but I don't get how any Christian can still be registered with them . The agenda doesn't line up with our LORD. Is it subject to interpretation of the Bible?

Aha, now you might just be touching on the very roots of the apostasy that Jesus prophesied in Matthew 13 and that began with the State intervention and adoption of Christianity by Constantine, and that was cemented 'good and proper' by the Roman Church when it produced its Vulgate Bible, and was further indelibly endorsed by the Protestant Reformers' emphasis on Sola Scriptura, out of which came the Evangelical Alliance's Statement of Faith regarding the absolute verbal inerrancy of said 'Bible'.

...egarding the absolute verbal inerrancy of said 'Bible'.

 

 

So where do you stand on said quote? Not much respect there. And just like the left, I am being called intolerant and unkind because my views don't line up with yours. As long as I have been able to remember, and that ain't long, I have been taught that the Democratic party is for big gov't. Daniel and Revelation both speak of one world govt so it makes perfect sense. Now you get into Constantine, Roman Catholic vs Protestant, which yiu have shown your hand, and of course the Protestants are the intolerant ones. For those who don't know yet, not all will see the Kingdon of Heaven. I'll not be the only one to tell you not many Catholics know their prophecy.

You know guys, these events 'in general', are written in God's Word.

 

if you don't believe what I'm gonna say, that's fine, I understand many don't see the patterns in society linked with Biblical events. If you're upset by this, I suggest you go to another link.

 

I first heard the phrase "one world government" used back in the later 1970's. Ever since that time I had the urge to find out what it meant, and only many years later did I become a Christian and go in-depth into God's Word.

 

You guys remember who helped built the City of David and the first temple in Jerusalem, right? Recall how David and Solomon were friends with the king of Tyre who supplied workers for construction. Also recall the leftover Canaanites which Israel was not able to destroy per God's command (Judges 2 & 3). The Masonic lodge claims a tradition going all the way back to the temple of Solomon. That would make Masonry originally...a Jewish institution.

 

1 Kings 9:19-22

19 And all the cities of store that Solomon had, and cities for his chariots, and cities for his horsemen, and that which Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his dominion.

 

20 And all the people that were left of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, which were not of the children of Israel,

 

21 Their children that were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel also were not able utterly to destroy, upon those did Solomon levy a tribute of bondservice unto this day.

 

22 But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no bondmen: but they were men of war, and his servants, and his princes, and his captains, and rulers of his chariots, and his horsemen.

KJV

 

The children of Israel weren't known to be great artisans and craftsmen. This is why king David and king Solomon traded workers with the king of Tyre (a pagan, most likely a Canaanite). That is one of the connections with Masonry, which began from the old mason's joined together in Europe in guilds, basically the craftsmen that built the great stone structures in later Europe, and who put lots of pagan images into the stones of cathedrals, etc.

 

In some controversial documents that I won't mention, the Jewish elders have mentioned how for 22 centuries they have been at their plan for a one world kingdom. Just so happens, this slow movement to that point is part of God's Plan per His Word, for the end of this world. Everything is lining up like He said in His Word for the end. Their "king of the world" they plan to institute in the last days is going to be the Antichrist/false Messiah we were foretold of in God's Word for the end, sitting in Jerusalem playing God. That is the purpose of the NWO movement.

A "new world order" was a gimmicky phrase championed by both Bushes and even Obama. But remember, America is the New World and we once came to the rescue of the Old World (Europe). How's that for some context?

 

These previous Presidents wanted to place the U.S. on a world stage. Trump is containing the U.S. within her own borders (some criticize him for isolating America), reestablishing her sovereignty, and making us first and foremost great again. Obama wanted to lead from behind and encourage other nations to lead.

 

Obviously, that didn't work. Now they're upset because they need take the back seat or fall in line behind the New World.

 

Other nations:

I agree but as stated above, George Bush and others talked about it publicly.

Yeah, he was Skull and Bones.  All the Bushes are back to at least Prescott Bush who allegedly stole Geronimo's skull for the "Tomb."  Prescott's bank had ties to the Nazis during WWII.

    • Evangelism Must Explain What’s Wrong with the World

      People around us today often scoff at the notion of sin. Our world has new names for what ails us: poor self-esteem, neurosis, addiction, anxiety, psychological wounding, and so forth. It isn’t that these issues aren’t a reality; it’s that such analysis doesn’t go deep enough to reveal the root cause. Yet for all the protest that sin is an old-fashioned, outdated concept, nearly everyone agrees that something has gone terribly wrong and must be made right. We see the wrong in world wars, racism, genocides, terrorism, human trafficking, exploitation of children—and in our own personal battles evidenced in broken relationships, anger, addictions, and on and on. What happened that caused our planet to go from paradise to our present brokenness? And how can this explanation be good news for our unbelieving neighbors? First Rebellion In Genesis 3, we discover that, though Adam and Eve were created in God’s image, they rejected God’s rule and chose to be self-ruled when they disobeyed God’s command not to eat the fruit of that tree. As a result, sin entered the human race: there’s now no area of human personhood not infected by sin—even though we still reflect, however dimly, the image of God in which each human being is made. But the perfection God had established was broken, and human beings have been in the grip of sin ever since, as Genesis 4–11 so chillingly describes. Sin is such an all-inclusive reality that Paul says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). Like Adam and Eve, all humans have chosen self-rule instead of God-rule. That means that everything we see around us and in us that’s so tragically wrong—natural disasters, famine, genocides, and all forms of personal brokenness—can be traced back to the time when humans first rebelled against God. Into that garden came the evil Serpent, whom Revelation identifies as “that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan” (Rev. 20:2). The Bible reveals the reality of Satan and other supernatural beings who have rebelled against God and who do their best to tempt human beings to sin. Although the Bible reveals various forms of evil—such as corporate, systemic evil or Satan and his demons—the Bible is clear that at the heart of sin is personal rebellion against God. Wages of Sin Over dinner, a skeptic psychiatrist friend described the typical problems that drive people to seek her help. Then she said, “But you’re a Christian, so you think the problem is that we’re all sinners!” I asked what she thought the biblical understanding of sin was, and she answered, “Oh, something along the lines of drugs, sex, and rock ’n roll?” What my friend didn’t grasp is that from the biblical perspective, sin at its core isn’t just misdeeds. The Bible locates sin at the very center of human personality. Sin could be described as having a God-complex: we get ourselves and God mixed up! We live as if we’re in charge. Sin is actually twofold: it’s the deliberate refusal to trust and worship God as God, and it’s the prideful claim to insist on the right to run our lives. Sin is both unbelief and idolatry, as we try to create meaning and identity by depending on things other than God. Biblically speaking, sin is always against God. That’s why we can’t understand sin’s true meaning without understanding that sin, first and foremost, is rebellion against a righteous God. What was the final outcome of human disobedience to God? When Adam and Eve turned away from God in rebellion, God declared to them his righteous judgment, just as he had promised. Suffering and death fell on the human race. The consequence of Adam and Eve’s rebellion was disastrous: the human race became catastrophically separated from the eternal love of God. The perfect trust and warm, intimate friendship they had enjoyed with God and with each other were destroyed; they lived instead under his judgment of death. God’s presence was removed and human beings experienced a spiritual separation from God they had never known. The predicament of fallen humanity is so serious, so grave, and so desperately wrong from within and without, that it’s beyond human ability to fix. Think about it: Can fallen human beings change the intrinsic structure of our sinful nature and remake our natures from the inside? Can we defeat Satan? Do we have the power to conquer death? Clearly we do not! Who then has the power to deliver and rescue us? Who can take what is so terribly wrong and make it right? Obviously, only a power that is stronger than ourselves can help us overcome ourselves. Nothing short of divine intervention can rectify our situation. Hope for the Broken We glimpse this divine intervention even in the garden of Eden. Although God banished Adam and Eve from the garden, he didn’t stop loving them, as we see when he tenderly made them better clothes than what they’d made for themselves, to protect them once they were outside the garden. Most important, in Genesis 3:14–15, God declares war on the serpent (Satan) and says that the offspring of the woman will crush the serpent’s head. The whole rest of the Old Testament points toward the coming of that promised offspring who would finally defeat Satan: Jesus the Savior, born of a woman named Mary. God will not allow the Enemy’s plan to harm his plan. This is the first promise of the gospel. The Bible reveals that before the beginning of time and the human revolt, God had already decided on his plan of how to rescue the planet that had turned from him (Titus 1:2; Eph. 3:11). He would send a Redeemer, Christ Jesus the divine Son of God, who would endure suffering and death in order to bring sinners back to God. Even in human rebellion, we see the promise of God’s grace. The good news of the gospel is that sin and judgment weren’t the end of the story! Though God owed us nothing, in his mercy and grace he sent his divine Son from heaven on a rescue mission to redeem a people for himself and to restore everything under Christ—“to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ” (Eph. 1:10). Jesus now commands all believers to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19). When we see the beauty and glory of the gospel, the victory won by the Son of God on our behalf and in our place, and the cosmic significance of all that Christ has accomplished, how can we possibly remain silent and keep this glorious news to ourselves?

    • 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."
