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.

Favorite hymns and songs.

What are some of your favorite hymns?

 

Some of mine are: It is will with my soul, a beautiful song from a real life experience of deep sorrow yet peace in God's sovereignty and thankfulness of Christ sacrifice on the cross.

 

When the role is called up yonder, it was my grandmothers favorite.

 

Jesus loves me. Although it's usually sung as a children's song I still love this simple message of Christ love.

Trivia question, from which theological camp was the author of Amazing Grace from? Example: Arianism, Pelagian, Semi-Pelagian, Arminian, Calvinism, Universalism?

 

Answer: John Newton was a Calvinist!

 

God bless,

The song itself awnsers the question. Otherwise the song would be amazing works. Lol. Joking, but not really.

Hymns:

 

My most favorite is a little hymn "Praise God, from whom all blessings flow".

 

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

 

Praise God the Father who’s the source;

Praise God the Son who is the course;

Praise God the Spirit who’s the flow;

Praise God, our portion here below!

 

And then:

  1. How Great Thou Art
  2. In Christ Alone.
  3. Ancient Words
  4. Amazing Grace

God bless,

William

Oh Holy Night ... maybe not my favorite song, but I love the line "Fall on your knees!

Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born;

O night divine, O night, O night Divine.

 

William: Not sure if it is written by a Calvinist, but still good. (LOL)

And Can it Be was written by Charles Wesley yet it sounds very Reformed. I think Wesley was Reformed at heart, his mind just didn't know it.

6. Just a Closer Walk With Thee

7. Do Not Pass Me By

14. In the Garden

Wonderful, wonderful hymns . . . many of them my "favorite" too . . .but one that always moves me to tears is "Fairest Lord Jesus" . . . partly because of the history, it was sung by the Crusaders on their way to Jerusalem.

 

(I am not advocating for the Crusades, there is a discussion/debate no one can "win," there just are not many hymns that I know that have that depth of historical context. Our Faith is almost 2,000 years "old'" but sometimes I think we forget that.)

    • ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Ranks Second Place Among Americans’ Favorite Christmas Carols: Poll

      By Evie Fordham - “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is the second-most popular Christmas carol and the most popular Christmas song among women, according to a user poll conducted by the messaging app MEi released Monday. The poll talked to 4,000 app users in the U.S. over the weekend and broke down the results by age, gender and even political party, a MEi spokesperson told The Daily Caller News Foundation Tuesday. It turns out that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is the second-most popular Christmas song among both Republicans and Democrats, with 16 percent of Republicans ranking it as their favorite and 15 percent of Democrats. Only “Silent Night” surpassed “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in popularity, according to Mei’s user poll. “Baby It’s Cold Outside” has been blasted this holiday season by critics who say its lyrics are about sexual harassment. Some radio stations banned it, like Cleveland’s WDOK, which announced the decision on its website. “I do realize that when the song was written in 1944, it was a different time, but now, while reading it, it seems very manipulative and wrong,” WDOK’s Glenn Anderson wrote Nov. 27. “The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place.” But the song’s defenders have come up with some creative ways to show their support. A Kentucky radio station played a two-hour “Baby It’s Cold Outside” marathon on Sunday, alternating between five different versions of the tune. The song was first popularized in the 1949 film “Neptune’s Daughter” and made into a hit by crooner Dean Martin in 1959. His daughter Deana Martin defended the song on “Fox & Friends” Dec. 10. “I was absolutely flabbergasted,” Martin said about the backlash the song has received. “It’s just insane. When I heard it and I said, this can’t possibly be. You know, it’s a sweet, flirty, fun, holiday song that, well, it’s been around for 50 years.” MEi’s poll let users pick from a 2017 top 10 list of Christmas carols plus “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Users’ other favorite songs from the list included “Jingle Bells,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” MEi is a messaging app with a twist — it uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze users’ conversations.

    • Can a christian listen to/watch non-religious songs/movies?

      Personally I believe that a christian should not listen to the songs that are explicit and contain harsh words and shouldn't watch movies which involves sexual immorality, violence and occult   But what about those which are morally neutral?   which may not cause our spiritual growth but aren't evil either?   one of my friends said that a Christian shouldn't listen to wordly music/movies even if they're neutral in nature.   As they are distracting and takes us away from God?

From there, the U.S. soldiers must struggle to regain their balance while enduring heavy gunfire.   As you may of remember up until this point the U.S. government could not confirm or deny the existence of Delta.   This is the Delta Sniper scene where a sniper and his scout volunteer to rescue and hold the perimeter around a downed black hawk chopper pilot. These two men gave their lives defending the pilot until their death:     2nd: Act of Valor (Based on real acts of Valor) An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs in a film like no other in Hollywood’s history.
