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.

Chelsea Manning Barred from Entering Canada

Recommended Posts

Here is an interesting statement from the article. "She served seven years, and twice tried to take her own life last year alone." We live in a society which advocates giving people with terminal illnesses the right to commit suicide. Do you think we should extend this privilege to convicted criminals as well?

    • FBI Reveals Record Number Of Illegal Aliens Barred From Buying Guns

      By Jason Hopkins - The FBI released its list of those prohibited from gun purchases in 2018, with illegal aliens topping the list by a landslide. A new report from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System breaks down the number of people blocked from buying guns in 2018. At 7,836,600, the “illegal/unlawful alien” category ranked at the top, beating the second category by nearly 2 million. The “adjudicated mental health” category came in second place with 7,836,600, and convicted criminals rounded the top three with 3,833,213. The active records of those barred from gun purchases have increased over the years. The numbers also highlight the escalating fight over illegal immigration. The federal government is currently under a “shutdown” because President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats are at odds over funding for a proposed wall on the country’s southern border with Mexico. “We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” Trump tweeted Friday. “Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!” The murder of a California police officer on Wednesday by an undocumented immigrant also highlights the personal tragedy associated with illegal alien-related crime. Officer Ronil Singh, 33, was shot and killed at a traffic stop by an illegal alien. Singh leaves behind a wife and baby boy. “He’ll never see his son walk. He doesn’t get to hold that little boy, hug his wife, say ‘good night’ anymore because a coward took his life,” Newman, California, Police Chief Randy Richardson, choking back tears, said to reporters Thursday.

    • China Furious After US Asks Canada To Arrest Chinese Telecom Exec

      By Anders Hagstrom - The Chinese Embassy in Canada released a furious statement Thursday after Canada arrested a Chinese tech giant executive at the behest of a U.S. extradition request. The U.S. submitted an extradition request for chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou of the Chinese telecom giant Huawei after the company was deemed a national security threat. Meng was in Canada at the time and authorities arrested her, a move which China is calling unjustified and illegal, NBC news reported Thursday. The arrest comes as U.S. President Donald Trump negotiated a trade truce with China on Dec. 1, which could now be threatened if tensions continue to escalate. “We have made solemn representations to Canada and the US, demanding that both parties immediately clarify the reasons for the detention, and immediately release the detainee to protect the person’s legal rights,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular press briefing in Beijing. Meng and Huawei generally are accused of breaking sanctions against trading with Iran by selling U.S.-made products. U.S. intelligence authorities began investigating Hauwei in early 2018. Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse praised Canada’s willingness to arrest Meng, saying that China has long been an antagonist in global trade. “China is working creatively to undermine our national security interests, and the United States and our allies can’t sit on the sidelines,” Sasse said in a Wednesday statement. “Sometimes Chinese aggression is explicitly state-sponsored and sometimes it’s laundered through many of Beijing’s so-called ‘private’ sector entities that are in bed with Xi’s communist party. Americans are grateful that our Canadian partners have arrested the Chief Financial Officer of a giant Chinese telecom company for breaking U.S. sanctions against Iran.” James Andrew Lewis, the director of the technology policy program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told NBC that arresting Meng, the daughter of Huawei’s founder, is like China choosing to arrest business magnate Bill Gates’ daughter. “If I was a tech executive I would not go to China right now,” he told NBC.
