What Is Love?

nov10Continuing on with the topic of same-sex attraction, I need to address what love really is. Many folks claim that love validates whichever kind of relationship they’re in. Does it? And what do they mean by love?

I’ve heard people say so often that they’re in a committed relationship with their partner. They point out one or two same-sex pseudo-marriages which are working out while ignoring divorces of same-sex partners.  If sodomite partnerships are so wonderful, why are many seeking a divorce?

What people continually ignore is that love is a verb. Just read what Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthian church, chapter thirteen, and you’ll see how love is always expressed in selfless actions.

What people call love is really lust. They might claim to admire somebody but they only want their own pleasure cravings met. Look at what Christ said in Matthew 5:28 (KJV) “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”nov10a

Same-sex partners might even believe that they love each other but not according to what God calls love. Leading anybody into sin and justifying it is evil. This is why we Christians warn sinners, including same-sex partners, to flee fornication. We hate sin but we care about sinners and want them to be rescued from hell before it’s too late.

I want to warn all who sin to yield their lives to Christ and follow him. That’s why I’m working on a book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? I don’t even want my worst enemy to end up in hell. Its horror is unimaginable and eternal.
