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.

    • Needed: Theologically Driven Church Plants

      A church planter must have an unshakable confidence in the gospel, really believing it is the power of God unto salvation. But to have a deep confidence in the gospel, you must have a deep grasp of the gospel. This is why theological development is necessary. It’s possible for church planters to have some attractive characteristics—winsome personality, unusual gifting, ability to gather people—only to have little depth theologically. To be sure, there’s more to planting a church than being theologically robust. Knowing theology doesn’t make you a good leader. We must take into account the importance of loving people, knowing our context, being hard working and resourceful, and always pursuing godliness and prayer. In this podcast episode, though, we want to shine a light on the importance of being a theologically driven church planter in this spiritually confused age. The church planter bears a great responsibility to rightly handle the word of truth, both outside and inside the church. On this episode of Churches Planting Churches, it’s my pleasure to welcome Bryan Laughlin. You can listen to this podcast episode here. Subscribe Itunes RSS View the full article

    • Do All Plants Go to Heaven?

      Where there may be room for GMOs and other modern agriculture in the New Jerusalem. Ross Smith grew up knowing he would farm. Born to a fifth-generation farmer in northern Indiana, Smith in his younger years worked alongside his dad and grandfather. He studied agricultural economics at Purdue University and learned about the technological advancements in agriculture that defined the 20th century and boosted crop efficiency. But Smith and his wife also began a small vegetable and hog farm in Hendricks County, Indiana, that sold directly to consumers through on-farm purchases and farmers’ markets. Schooled in modern agriculture, Smith felt the tension of operating an old-fashioned (if currently in vogue) business, “caught between a love of a capitalistic economic system that awards efficiency and an intense love of God’s created world that I believe to be often damaged by ‘efficiency,’ ” he says. Smith has navigated two competing visions of how we are to subdue the earth and its every seed-bearing plant in the 21st century. One approach maximizes production and crop yields through the power of human innovation, arguing that genetic seed modification and GPS-guided harvesters are God’s provision to feed a growing population in a complex world. The other approach sees organic production and the local food movement as guardians of true flourishing, warning us not to overindulge human creativity at the expense of God’s original creation: our bodies and the land. Unsurprisingly, disagreements between proponents of each view—whether farmers or home cooks—have often become polarized. Watchdog documentarians infiltrate the shocking “factory farm” that nourishes a paycheck-stretching Walmart shopper, while a farm-share member packs $7 cartons of ... Continue reading...
