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.

Anti-Christian Political party in Power

Recommended Posts

Recently there was a message in whatsapp that is circulating in our country. It says, that the political party which is currently in majority in the parliament has decided to break all the Churches in our country by 2018. Remove the word secular from the Constitution etc. Please pray for the Christians in our country, so that they have the strength to withstand all the prosecutions that is coming our way.

What country do you live in?

 

Good question! Also are there elections coming up in anumapas2's country? Because that's when these kinds of messages circulate country-wide.

 

Also let's not forget that these kinds of mass-mail (spam essentially) are usually misinformation by bored individuals. Never once have I seen spam-message conspiracy theories come to fruition, much less one alluding to the deprivation of a basic human right. But what they do is breed doubt and fear to the recipients, for whatever reason they have in mind.

    • Gillibrand Makes Her First Political Flip Flop Since Announcing Presidential Run

      By Molly Prince - Gillibrand Makes Her First Political Flip Flop Since Announcing Presidential Run Molly Prince on January 16, 2019 Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand reversed her position on allowing illegal immigrants to obtain drivers’ licenses only a day after she announced that she would be seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020. During her presidential campaign kickoff on Wednesday, Gillibrand told reporters in just outside of Troy, New York that she is now supportive of granting illegal immigrants the ability to procure a drivers’ license, reported the New York Daily News. “I think we have to make it possible for people to provide for their families,” the New York senator said. “We need comprehensive immigration reform.Without doing that, you’re not going to get the problem solved for the rest of the country.” Gillibrand notably expressed her opposition to the proposal in 2007 while she was serving as the congresswoman for New York’s 20th Congressional District, according to The Free Beacon. Instead, she supported legislation requiring individuals to provide proof of citizenship prior to obtaining a driver’s license. Gillibrand announced on Tuesday that she is launching an exploratory committee to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. Only months earlier, she pledged prior to her midterm election she would serve her full six-year term if re-elected to the Senate. After she handily won re-election by 33 points in November, she seemingly walked back that pledge. Following Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Gillibrand is the second senator, and second female senator, to declare their plans to begin the legal process of running for president in 2020. Gillibrand’s campaign will likely focus on intersectionality and gender politics as she tries to carve out a niche in a potentially crowded Democratic primary field. She attended a private meeting with roughly 20 feminist leaders on Saturday, including feminist Gloria Steinem, asking for their assistance with her impending presidential run.

    • House Dems Plan On Going After Trump Jr In First Use Of Subpoena Power

      By Henry Rodgers - House Democrats plan on going after Donald Trump Jr. with their first use of subpoena power since taking over as the majority party on Jan. 3. Democratic California Rep. Jackie Speier, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said “Donald Trump Jr.” would be the first person called in before the committee in 2019, saying she believes there were multiple people who have already testified that were not being truthful, in a Tuesday night speech to the Women’s National Democratic Club in Washington. “There are a number of persons that testified before the committee that I feel were not telling the truth,” Speier said, according to The Washington Examiner. Donald Trump Jr. delivers a speech during a ceremony for the official opening of the Trump International Tower & Hotel on February 28, 2017 in Vancouver, Canada. (Photo by Jeff Vinnick/Getty Images) Trump Jr. was falsely accused of lying in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee by NPR in late November, regarding a deal with Trump Tower in Moscow. The news organization later issued a long editor’s note to the article. However, the piece was never retracted. The president’s eldest son has denied any wrongdoing since the beginning of the probe, saying in a September interview that he is not worried about legal trouble in the special counsel’s Russia probe. “I know what I did, and I’m not worried about any of that. That doesn’t mean they won’t try to create something, I mean, we’ve seen that happen with everything. But, again, I’m not,” Trump Jr. said in the interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Speier’s office did not immediately respond for comment when asked why Trump Jr. would be the first person subpoenaed by the committee.

    • The Signs of Political Idolatry

      by Timothy J. Keller   One of the signs that an object is functioning as an idol is that fear becomes one of the chief characteristics of life. When we center our lives on the idol, we become dependent on it. If our counterfeit god is threatened in any way, our response is complete panic. We do not say, ‘What a shame, how difficult,’ but rather ‘This is the end! There’s no hope!’   This may be a reason why so many people now respond to U.S. political trends in such an extreme way. When either party wins an election, a certain percentage of the losing side talks openly about leaving the country. They become agitated and fearful for the future. They have put the kind of hope in their political leaders and policies that once was reserved for God and the work of the gospel. When their political leaders are out of power, they experience a death. They believe that if their policies and people are not in power, everything will fall apart. They refuse to admit how much agreement they actually have with the other party, and instead focus on the points of disagreement. The points of contention overshadow everything else, and a poisonous environment is created.   Another sign of idolatry in our politics is that opponents are not considered to be simply mistaken but to be evil. After the last presidential election, my eighty-four-year-old mother observed, ‘It used to be that whoever was elected as your president, even if he wasn’t the one you voted for, he was still your president. That doesn’t seem to be the case any longer.’ After each election, there is now a significant number of people who see the incoming president lacking moral legitimacy. The increasing political polarization and bitterness we see in U.S. politics today is a sign that we have made political activism into a form of religion. How does idolatry produce fear and demonization?   Dutch-Canadian philosopher Al Wolters taught that in the biblical view of things, the main problem in life is sin, and the only solution is God and his grace. The alternative to this view is to identify something besides sin as the main problem with the world and something besides God as the main remedy. That demonizes something that is not completely bad, and makes and idol out of something that cannot be the ultimate good.   …In political idolatry, we make a god out of having power.   Source: https://www.monergism.com/signs-political-idolatry
