has several different meanings in every language, from something
that gives a little pleasure ("I loved that meal") to
something one would die for (patriotism, pairbonding). It can
describe an intense feeling of affection, an emotion or an
emotional state. In ordinary use, it usually refers to
interpersonal love. Probably due to its emotional primacy, love
is one of the most common themes in art.
are several Greek words for Love that are regularly referred to
in Christian circles.
Agape - In the New Testament, agapē is charitable, selfless,
altruistic, and unconditional. It is parental love seen as
creating goodness in the world, it is the way God is seen to love
humanity, and it is seen as the kind of love that Christians
aspire to have for one another.
Phileo - Also used in the New Testament, Phileo is a human
response to something that is found to be delightful. Also known
as "brotherly love".
Two other words for love in the Greek language -- Eros (sexual
love) and Storge (needy child-to parent love) were never used in
the New Testament.
believe that to love God with all your heart, mind, and strength
and Love your neighbour as yourself are the two most important
things in life (the greatest commandment of God, according to
Jesus). See The Gospel of Mark chapter 12, verses 28-34). Saint
Augustine summarised this when he wrote "Love God, and do as
thou wilt". Saint Paul glorified agape love as the most
important virtue of all in 1 Corinthians, chapter 13. Attempting
to define it he wrote, "Love is patient, love is kind. It
does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not
rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps
no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices
with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes,
and always perseveres. Love never fails."(NIV 13:4-8)
also believe that God felt so much agape love for man that he
sacrificed his son for them. John the Apostle wrote, "For
God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that
whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but the save the world through him." (NIV John 3:16-17)
Christian theologians see God as the source of love, which is
mirrored in humans and their relationships.
