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.

Anyone else here listen to Michael Jackson's music?

Recommended Posts

There is only a few songs that I like from this artist, however his dancing was the thing that I noticed more about him to be honest. You can say a lot of things about him; his dancing you cannot deny was excellent.

Is there a point here, or just curious? I like some less than holy music, but I have been on the Catholic site where they actually give RIP's to many of those who did nothing for the kids except point them to sin. I never got the chance to chastise them for it. Having said that, Michael Jackson was truly one of the greatest artists, arguably the greatest, of all time.

There's no point to it. This post slipped by moderation, the original poster was spamming the forum.

His family's rise to musical stardom is an inspiration for any musican, and his music with the Jackson 5 was jaw dropping. Plus, in his later years, his music continued to be great and inspiring, though some of his 80s tunes, besides Human Nature and few others, were a little generic. In other words, I'm not going out of my way to listen to them.

 

However, as someone pointed out, a huge negative cloud exists around him. Well, in that case I love the music, but not the sin. For instance, I also like a lot of Elton John's stuff, but don't approve of his personal choices and politics.

 

Finally it's interesting to note he wasn't the only rock star accused pedophila, just the only one to get mass attention, mainly cause he was bigger than life, even for a rock star.

    • Michael Cohen May Back Out Of Congressional Hearing Over Trump Comments

      By Chuck Ross - Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen might back out of a congressional hearing scheduled for February, the former Trump lawyer’s adviser said Thursday. In an appearance on MSNBC, Lanny Davis said Cohen is reconsidering whether to testify before Congress because of comments from President Donald Trump about Cohen’s father-in-law. “There is genuine fear and it causes Michael Cohen to consider whether he should go forward or not. And he’s not yet made a final decision,” Davis told MSNBC’s Ari Melber. Trump took aim at Cohen’s father-in-law during an interview Saturday with Fox’s Jeanine Pirro. “[Cohen] should give information maybe on his father-in-law, because that’s the one that people want to look at,” Trump said. “Because where does that money — that’s the money in the family. And I guess he didn’t want to talk about his father-in-law — he’s trying to get his sentence reduced.” “So it’s pretty sad,” Trump continued. “It’s weak and it’s very sad to watch a thing like that.” Trump’s remarks garnered an immediate rebuke from Democrats who accused the Republican of witness intimidation and tampering. Cohen agreed earlier in January to testify before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7 about his years of work for Trump. Cohen was sentenced Dec. 12 to three years in prison for a slew of crimes, including tax evasion and bank fraud. He also pleaded guilty to illegal campaign contributions for payments to porn star Stormy Daniels. Cohen said Trump directed him to pay Daniels $130,000 in October 2016. Cohen also pleaded guilty in the special counsel’s investigation to lying to Congress about the extent of his negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. The former Trump fixer is expected to discuss his dealings with Trump in his congressional testimony, should it go forward. But Davis, a close friend of the Clintons, said Trump’s remarks had a negative impact on Cohen. “He is very concerned, as is his family, that a bully in the bully pulpit named Donald Trump calls out a member of his family, and he’s also called out other members of his family, using the White House platform on a national television show.” Davis also said he agreed with Democrats that Trump’s remarks constituted witness intimidation and tampering. “There’s no question that his threatening and calling out his father-in-law who, quote, has all of the money, is not only improper and unseemly for a bully using the bully pulpit of the presidency, but the very definition of intimidation and witness tampering,” Davis said. “Especially a witness about to appear before a congressional committee to tell the truth about what he knows about Donald Trump? By definition that deserves a criminal investigation.” Davis told Melber on Jan. 11 he hopes Cohen’s congressional appearance will help him get a reduced prison sentence.

    • Michael Cohen Report Is Based On Third-Hand Information, Reporter Reveals

      By Chuck Ross - McClatchy reported on Thursday that foreign intelligence exists placing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen in Prague during the 2016 campaign, as is alleged in the infamous Steele dossier But the story is coming under scrutiny after Cohen directly denied the report. Other news outlets have been unable to corroborate the bombshell report One of the reporters who worked on the story, Greg Gordon, has shed light on the reporting. In an interview with MSNBC, he acknowledged that he and his sources did not directly see the underlying intelligence cited in the report.  The reporters who broke a potentially bombshell story claiming evidence that Michael Cohen visited Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign did not see for themselves some of the underlying intelligence cited in their report, one of the journalists who wrote the story revealed on Thursday. In an interview on MSNBC, Greg Gordon said that he and his McClatchy colleague, Peter Stone, did not physically see cell tower records and intelligence intercepts that they claim placed Cohen in Prague in Summer 2016. Gordon also suggested that the four anonymous sources he and Stone cite in their article also did not see the intelligence for themselves, meaning that the report is based on third-hand information. “Is there anything that you were able to physically see for yourselves?” MSNBC host Joy Reid asked Gordon. “I wish we had. We held out for a while for that, and it came a type when we thought we had a critical mass. It is a competitive business,” Gordon said. “Some of the sources have government sources, and some of the sources are people who have told us that they have trusted intelligence-type sources that they get information from. We don’t know the specifics, but we have used these sources on many subjects, and they have been very accurate,” Gordon added. When asked if he has seen the intercepts, Gordon responded, “No.” He said that his sources were told that the intercepts exist. Earlier on Thursday, Gordon and Stone reported that electronic records show that Cohen’s cell phone pinged a tower in Prague in the summer of 2016, around the same time the Steele dossier claims that Cohen was in the European city to meet with a group of Kremlin insiders. Gordon and Stone also reported that Eastern European intelligence agency picked up chatter from a Russian government official who claimed that Cohen was in Prague. The information has been provided to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, McClatchy reported. If true, the McClatchy report would significantly bolster the dossier, which alleges a massive conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian government to influence the 2016 election. According to Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, Cohen visited Prague to meet with Kremlin officials to arrange payments to Russian hackers. Cohen has denied the dossier’s claims ever since BuzzFeed published the document on Jan. 10, 2017. He continued publicly denying the report up until late June, around the time that the former Trump fixer began cooperating with federal prosecutors in the various cases against him. Since then, Cohen’s attorney-turned-adviser, Lanny Davis, has publicly disputed the dossier on Cohen’s behalf. The McClatchy story has come under intense scrutiny, largely because Cohen broke his silence to deny the report on Twitter. No other news outlets have been able to confirm the report, as well as a similar story published by the same reporters back on April 13. In that initial story, Gordon and Stone reported that Mueller had received information that placed Cohen in Prague. It is not clear whether that information is the same intelligence identified in Thursday’s report. “I hear #Prague #CzechRepublic is beautiful in the summertime. I wouldn’t know as I have never been. #Mueller knows everything!” Cohen wrote on Twitter after the McClatchy report appeared. Gordon avoided responding directly to Cohen’s denial when asked about it on MSNBC. “Michael Cohen as we all know has been convicted of lying about his dealings with the Trump hotel in Russia. He’s been convicted of being deceitful in a number of ways, so his credibility is not high,” Gordon said. Gordon was forced to acknowledge that Cohen could have merely stayed silent about the report if it was accurate. “All I can say to that is we’ll have to see how this sorts out,” Gordon replied. While Gordon now questions Cohen’s credibility, the same cannot be said for Mueller, who revealed in a court filing on Dec. 7 that Cohen has gone to “significant lengths” to assist the special counsel’s investigation, including by meeting with prosecutors seven times. Cohen pleaded guilty in the special counsel’s investigation on Nov. 29 to lying to Congress about the extent of his efforts to build a Trump Tower Moscow. Cohen was not charged with lying about the dossier allegations, which he denied during his congressional testimony. The absence of dossier-related charges has been interpreted by many as evidence that Mueller believes that Cohen is telling the truth when he denies the dossier’s claims.

    • Michael Cohen Disputes Report Claiming Prague Visit

      By Chuck Ross - Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen on Thursday disputed a would-be bombshell report claiming that he visited Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign. “I hear #Prague #CzechRepublic is beautiful in the summertime. I wouldn’t know as I have never been.  #Mueller knows everything!,” Cohen wrote on Twitter. Cohen was responding to a report from McClatchy claiming that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been provided with electronic evidence showing that Cohen’s cell phone communicated with a tower in Prague during in late Summer 2016. The report, if accurate, would seem to corroborate a major allegation made in the Steele dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC. The dossier, which was authored by former British spy Christopher Steele, alleged that Cohen visited Prague in late August or early September 2016 to meet with Kremlin insiders to pay off Russian hackers. Cohen vehemently denied the dossier’s allegations up until he began cooperating over the summer with federal prosecutors in New York and with the special counsel’s office. He also disputed an April 13 report from the same McClatchy reporters who claimed that Mueller had been provided evidence that Cohen visited Prague. Cohen, who entered plea deals with prosecutors from both offices, was sentenced to three years in prison on Dec. 12. Lanny Davis, an adviser to Cohen, has claimed in recent months that Cohen has information implicating President Trump in illegal activity. As part of a plea deal struck with prosecutors in New York, Cohen said that Trump instructed him to make a hush payment in October 2016 to Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Cohen pleaded guilty to making an illegal campaign contribution. Cohen also pleaded guilty in the Mueller probe on Nov. 29 to lying to Congress last year about his efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Notably, Cohen did not admit to lying to Congress when he denied claims made in the dossier. That has been widely interpreted as circumstantial evidence that Mueller does not have evidence placing Cohen in Prague. Cohen’s tweet is the first time since June 28 that he has weighed in publicly on the dossier’s allegations against him. Davis, has instead been the public face of those denials. Davis, a longtime associate of the Clintons who was also Cohen’s lawyer during his legal battles, insisted on Dec. 16, as well as to McClatchy this week, that Cohen did not visit Prague. Those denials have been taken seriously given that Cohen seemingly has no incentive to lie about any contacts with Russians now that he is cooperating with prosecutors.
