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.

Where are the South Koreans?

Recommended Posts

Hi William,

 

 South Korea has a large percentage of Christians living there so I am wondering why there aren't more (any?) South Koreans signed on here. Could it be that perhaps the language is a barrier? I taught there for several years and met quite a few Christians who spoke pretty good/good English.

On this subject, I need John Calvin's Christian Institutes translated into Korean. Do you know of any publication which I can buy this from?

 

God bless,

William

Here's our numbers at the end of last month. You can see the amount of people from South Korea which viewed this website:

Hi William,

 

 I searched and couldn't find any. I would think there is one seeing that many South Korean Christians are Presbyterians.

 

 Remember though, my "search" is in a country that blocks quite a few websites with this kind of information. Couple that with the fact that this is the same time of year with what took place exactly 29 years ago in the country I am now --- the internet will be even more difficult to access things.

Thanks for checking brother. I found one and I'm reluctant to give my credit card information to such a poorly built website.

 

God bless,

Perhaps do the translation yourself?

Now that is a lot of work!

I do not read and write Korean anymore (had when young). I'll inquire at my church among the Korean members. I'm looking for a translation for my Korean mother.

Hi William, better safe than sorry they say. 

Have you tried the Goggle free translate site below? It has been very adequate for the smaller amount of translating I need.

I don't know if that's the one you already saw, William.

Thanks Aton9us. That's the site I was referring to as too poorly done to order from. I made one attempt already to purchase from that site but I'll try once more.

 

Followup: Successfully ordered from Hanbooks, it must of been a separate issue having attempted to order on a mobile device. Desktop placed the order successfully.

 

God bless,

William

That's great, William!

 

I spent a year in Korea 78-79 in the Air Force - never read any - spoke a little.

 

I read Calvin's INSTITUTES, and also his COMMENTARY ON HABAKKUK, which I think is maybe best on that book I ever read.

Very nice. I too served in the Air Force. Spent some time in Korea outside the service.

    • Winter Storm Leaves Hundreds Of Thousands Without Power In The South

      By Tim Pearce - Hundreds of thousands are without power as a winter storm continues to pummel parts of the South with heavy snow, ABC News reports. The storm dropped roughly 2 feet of snow on parts of Virginia and 10 to 20 inches of powder on parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia. Parts of Georgia and Kentucky received half a foot of snow or more. More than 276,000 people are currently without power because of the weekend storm. More than 141,000 of the customers left in the dark are in North Carolina, ABC News reports. Those numbers have improved since Sunday, when well over half a million people were without power. The massive storm has created havoc on roads and highways throughout the South. People attempting to travel on the icy roads have gotten into accidents more often and the storm has hindered emergency vehicles and first responders. North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned residents Sunday to keep from traveling if possible as National Guard workers, road crews and emergency personnel clear roads of traffic, according to the Associated Press. “Stay put if you can,” Cooper said. “Wrap a few presents, decorate the tree, watch some football.” At least one person died because of the storm that placed more than 20 million people under a winter weather alert and about 8 million people under flash flood warnings. Nine million people fell under high wind advisories, CNN reported. More than 1,100 flights in and out of North Carolina’s Charlotte Douglas International Airport were canceled Sunday. The storm is moving east off the coast and into the Atlantic Ocean. Some snow is continuing to fall on the states of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, according to ABC News.

    • Things went south after end of Acts

      Acts ends with Paul spending 2 years in house arrest, but really at liberty to see who he will, and truly as he said it seemed that "things had fallen out for the furtherance of the gospel".   Yet pretty soon Paul is beheaded ( as a Roman citizen, he was not crucified as Peter and maybe others were.)   How did things go south so quick?   From persecution by Jews, with Roman officials saying "tend to your own laws, don't involve us in your religion" -- it comes to Rome viewing Christians as enemies of the state.   I am foggy on my Roman History.  Somewhere between Augustus and Nero -- the worm had turned -- I think probably Paul and Peter were martyred even before Nero took power.   What sayest thou?

    • Trump orders probe of South African white-owned land seizures and murders

      After growing controversy stemming from the planned seizure of white-owned farms in South Africa, President Trump has directed the United States to get involved. “I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers,” President Trump tweeted Thursday. He then added a quote from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson: “South African Government is now seizing land from white farmers.” Download our FREE Mobile App - The Highest Rated Military News App in the World! In an effort to reduce the number of white-owned farms, the South African government has decided to seize white-owned farmland without providing payment, Fortune reported Thursday. White farmers own 72 percent of the farmland in South Africa, even though whites only comprise eight percent of the population. Black farmers own only four percent of farmland, while Indian farmers own five percent, and mixed race farmers own 15 percent. The South African government has been unable to reduce the proportion of white farmers – which it believes to be the leftover effects of segregation and white supremacy – despite purchasing white-owned farmland. It has decided to simply steal the land instead, as a retaliatory measure against white farmers for the past actions of white supremacist government leaders. In February, the South African parliament voted in favor of amending its constitution to confiscate white-owned farmland without compensation. Julius Malema, leader of the extreme left Economic Freedom Fights party, initiated the motion. “The time for reconciliation is over. Now is the time for justice. We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land,” he said, according to News.com.au However, the government may begin carrying out the seizures without the amendment. A letter from the government was sent to two farmers in the northern province of Limpopo, in which the farm owners were warned that their farms would soon be seized because their asking price was too high. In Zimbabwe, white-owned farms were seized by government without compensation, causing devastating effects on the agriculture-driven economy. The issue of large-scale killings of farmers has been disputed, however. The South African government responded to President Trump’s tweet, calling the information false, and saying it conveys a “narrow perception which only seeks to divide our nation and reminds us of our colonial past,” the Chicago Tribune reported. Yet many stories continue to surface of white farmers killed in cold blood – a sight so common that some claim it no longer makes headlines in South Africa. Some say the murders are vengeance killings and political hate. Agri SA, a South African commercial farmers union, claims that only 47 farm murders occurred in the past year, a rate which is said to be the lowest in 19 years. However, AfriForum lobbying group said they’ve verified the names and identities of 84 farmers murdered in the past year, ABC News Online reported. View the full article
