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.

GMO Seeds In Agriculture

Recommended Posts

I have always had mixed feelings about GMOs. I don't mind that they put jellyfish DNA in cats with cancer to track how DNA passes on cancer through generations. It's not great but doesn't seem to harm them as much as the cancer does and they are in contained quarters as long as PETA doesn't decide to free them. On the other hand I don't like GMO seeds being used in the open where they can contaminate wild, heirloom, and hybrid plants. Genetic splice always has a feeling of scientist playing God and it never ends well. But is this really any different then grafting one plant onto another like most citrus and apples?

Here in the rural, agriculturally-focused part of the west, GMOs have been a hot topic. I've studied it quite a bit and, while I am no expert, I am not all that alarmed by the development. There has been an intense amount of study on the topic and I've yet to see anything particularly credible about deleterious health effects. In fact, the overwhelming scientific consensus is that they are safe for human consumption. So, I understand the need for caution, but by the same token, many of the supposed negatives are based upon pseudoscience, fear-mongering, or both.

    • GMO seeds?

      I personally don't growing with genetically modified plants because they pollute the heirlooms with their pollen. But I was wondering how genetically modifying plants with animal or even bacteria DNA fits in terms of the Bible and God's word. I would think that if plants were meant to have animal DNA, God would have put them there. But then again, I have no issue planting my heirlooms and hybrid plants that have been selectively breed and are very different from their parent plants. Am I a hypocrite to be disturbed by GMO plants but fine with the others? I know you're not to sow multiple seeds in the same field but what about genetics?

    • Made In Israel: Agriculture

      Was watching this and thought it was interesting. It's not quite Christian but it who's the wealth that the Jewish community gave to Israel that makes the Palestinians jealous. I never realized how many innovations they made to make the land fertile and rich.
