<1 Corinthians 13

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,

10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.>


<The Promise of the Lord's Coming

The Second Letter of Peter

Chapter 3


This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you; in them I am trying to arouse your sincere intention by reminding you


that you should remember the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets, and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken through your apostles.


First of all you must understand this, that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and indulging their own lusts


and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since our ancestors died, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation!?


They deliberately ignore this fact, that by the word of God heavens existed long ago and an earth was formed out of water and by means of water,


through which the world of that time was deluged with water and perished.


But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the godless.


But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day.


The Lord is not slow about his promise, as some think of slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all to come to repentance.


But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and everything that is done on it will be disclosed.


Since all these things are to be dissolved in this way, what sort of persons ought you to be in leading lives of holiness and godliness,


waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set ablaze and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire?


But, in accordance with his promise, we wait for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness is at home.

Final Exhortation and Doxology


Therefore, beloved, while you are waiting for these things, strive to be found by him at peace, without spot or blemish;


and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation. So also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,


speaking of this as he does in all his letters. There are some things in them hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other scriptures.


You therefore beloved, since you are forewarned, beware that you are not carried away with the error of the lawless and lose your own stability.


But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.

Amen.> Full Member

  Diademas: Happy new year from Norway?
Puerto Rico is it?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Diademas: I had an aunt from Puerto Rico. Endearing woman. Five feet of fireworks I used to call her. She lived here for over 50 years and each year her Norwegian got worse and worse.
Loved her to bits.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Diademas>. I met a group of Norwegian missionaries in Puerto Rico. They were visiting a half-way house for drug addicts. Beautiful people. They were pure love. I remember hugging one huge man and in spite of his size and strength all I felt was his love for the less fortunate. They came with a group headed by Missionary Sally Olsen. That was 1990 and I have loved Norwegians ever since.
