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.

    “When we worship, we don’t just walk into a building and go through some holy motions. We are summoned by our mighty God to receive Christ and all his blessings through the gifts of the ministry of the Word and sacrament. This divine liturgy of call and response becomes very real to us, and we are able to glimpse something amazing. During Sunday worship, believers get a taste of the heavenly worship that is to come. There is a sense in which our future reality of the new creation is breaking into our covenant lives in the present during corporate worship.” (Aimee Byrd) 

     

    Have a great Lord’s day everyone 🙂

    Hey there 😀

    Hi everyone, Glad to be on here with you all! I’m Emma, 33, Reformed Baptist! Divorced with 4 children. I love Christ and His Church. I love serving as a women’s bible study leader, I love theology and think women should be equipped with knowledge of the gospel for their own sanctification and to counteract false teaching and heresy. I’m keen to gain some theological education if God wills at some future point. For now I work in a Christian school and stay home with my children. Just figuring out how this site works! Looking forward to getting to know you all! Oh and I’m Northern Irish ☘️ and unapologetically chatty! Xx

  16. Yes you could lock it and not allow further postings, there are many options. These options however are only available to staff to the best of my knowledge.

    When do forumn topics end & can the be ended early?

    If it gets shut down does this mean everything in the thread disappears or does it remain visible but no other responses are allowed? It seems that if it deals with a specific situation such as a prayer request or event leaving the responses and final solution or outcome visible would be desirable while allowing additional responses is not.
  18. Typically the only time a thread is shut down is when it gets out of hand. Also members are more than welcome to ask the staff to shut down a thread.
  19. Sorry if this is already covered somewhere else but I couldn't find the answer. I was wondering when topics that are created disappear or close(visible but no new posts allowed). Is this just a function of time from when the last response is given or does it never happen? If the person who started the topic (or staff for that matter) decides that the topic has achieved its goal (Some posts in particular deal with time specific circumstances) or outlived its usefulness do they have the ability to end the topic? It seems to me if that isn't currently the case it should be made a feature.

    Hello everyone

    Just thought it was interesting you should mention the Live Oak, Florida library - I have been there many times years ago! 🙂 When I was younger, we used to live near there in Madison. Anyway, nothing to do with the topic you two were talking about - just was interesting to hear a familiar place mentioned. 🙂
  22. To be fair, it actually is visible on my smartphone - perhaps there's an operating system difference?? Point understood re waiting before answering - and I don't disagree, except that in a forum such as this, posts get added if you wait, and the result can be confusing for everyone. I'll probably answer the rest of your post tomorrow, DV What could have been described as a harsh tone, was definitely not because of the justification of corrupt texts, but because of the method used in that justification. Also, there's a difference between a private conversation and a public forum - in the latter, surely there's a strong case to be made for exposure of weak, faulty, un-Biblical, illogical or dishonest arguments, for the sake of other people reading the thread????

    Bible Versions - Anyone else KJV only?

    There is a difference between an argument in the sense of having a fight and having a logical argument which is intended to give a good reason to believe the claims being made. If by argument you just mean fight then that would be two people outside a bar with their fists out or two people just shouting insults and accusations at each other as if by their louder voice or better skill at fighting they have proven themselves to be right. A logical argument consists of one or more premises followed by one or more conclusions. Premises without a conclusion is just a list of purported facts and a conclusion without premises does not provide reason to believe the conclusion. To actually be a logical argument requires both. To be a valid argument requires that the premises support the conclusion; that is if all the premises are true then the conclusion must also be true. To actually be a sound argument requires that the premises themselves be true; even if it is a valid argument if the premises themselves are false then the argument fails as a good reason to believe the conclusion. This is logic 101. I point out this distinction for three reasons first being that the distinction is often not being made in the use of the word argument, second because much of what is being passed as argument falls under that first category of fighting, and third because biblical warrant only gives us the right to engage in the second meaning and not the first. Scripture is very clear about how we are to behave in our discourse. That last reason is also why I didn't need to know that CharlesS was on staff. What he said would have been just as true and appropriate even if he was not. I agree whole hardheartedly about what you say regarding time to think and research our responses. When I first began engaging with Wull I said I was going to pray for him; and I have been doing so every day since.

    First, regarding staff SGS, you could have known that by looking at his membership profile. There is stated "Moderation", which shows the relation to staff. Update: As @becauseofgrace says, it is not visible on a smartphone, but on a computer it would be visible. Second, would it not be better to stop at certain moments in a discussion, even though you know that the other person is wrong? In such discussions, rarely you are able to persuade the other person with arguments. It is good to give some arguments for a time, and then just stop arguing. You have done your task, the rest is up to God. See the examples Jesus gives to his disciples when people would not listen: Shake the dust of your feet and go to the next city. Also, Jesus was a living example. He was falsely accused before Pilate, but kept silence when needed. It is not the arguments you make. I would whole heartily agree with the fact that the KJV is one of the better translations (based on the TR), and that the Critical Text is corrupted. However, there have been enough discussions that it is clear that Critical Text people are not willing to be persuaded. The challenge for you is, I think, in the manner of responding and to agree with the fact that the other person does not accept your arguments. Besides that, I get the idea, that the two things I have asked before concerning responses, love and prayer, are missing. But correct me, if I am wrong. Another tip for responding in difficult discussions. After you have typed the answer, wait for some time to post it (probably an hour or one day). After that, review the answer, update, and post it then. Usually, when responses can involve emotion, this is settled after a while and the answer will be much better thought through. Write and answer as if you write a Research Paper. Usualy, one makes his first draft. After a while, he reads through, reviews, shapes, and updates it. After this process, it is handed in. The say way, it would give you much better and well thought answers.

    @CharlesS Just thought I would mention, that it is true that I also did not realize you were on staff as part of moderation until instead of using my phone, I was on my laptop and happened to notice the "Moderation" title listed beneath your username. On a phone, it says nothing...so I naturally assumed you were not on staff, and just were joining in the conversation. I was a little surprised myself at your commanding tone in what you wrote until I seen that, lol. 🙂 There used to be a larger banner saying "Staff" that was visible on the mobile version, making it more obvious. Maybe this can be mentioned to the webmaster to be changed?
  26. @CharlesS, are you on the staff of SGS? You're not listed as being on the staff, so your posts on this thread were taken as being from another individual. Therefore, the warning I just received for being "Uncooperative to staff requests", was not expected. It is dishonesty and false accusation that instigated what you describe as "fights", not the rebuttal or rebuke of such. Do you also issue warnings for such behaviour? Also, can you please explain why the Scripture I've quoted, is either misunderstood or misapplied in this context. Thanks.

    Hello everyone

    Oh that's interesting, my family and I have visited primitive baptist churches in the past. I like their views on bivocational elders. I know a reformed baptist pastor who preaches in Live Oaks Florida at a Library there. His name is pastor John Weaver. I post his sermons on youtube, I wonder if you or anyone in your family knows of him. Here is a link to the youtube channel with his videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJwE74JH5T6LxhDZMTIELNw

    Checking Membership Status of Others?

    Hey everyone, Dean and the team are always working on making this site more user friendly in hopes to make it easier to bring people together. There have been many set backs over the years but hopefully soon tings will be more conducive to communicating with individuals.

    @Wull Let me be more clear. Stop being so argumentative and instigating fights.
