Faith and love seem to be the most used words in the world. However, few people have lived their reality.
The lack of discernment has led many to suffer and even lose their lives because of them.
When speaking of faith, the human mind automatically associates it with religion. This is natural faith, indifferent and apathetic to Christian ethics. It does not have any ties to discipline or justice.
Religious faith is founded on passion, feelings or the heart. It does not reason, it does not meditate, it does not evaluate; this is, it walks according to the circumstances.
What kind of faith promotes social disorder?
Contrary to natural faith, there is supernatural faith. This faith is associated with obedience. It is obedient to the Laws, commandments, or discipline of the God of Abraham.
This faith involves commitment and responsibility with everything that is righteous. It is orderly and involves personal sacrifices.
When regarding love, it is no different.
It is treated in a vulgar way when associated with futile and vain feelings.
For the sake of deception or lack of discernment, people indulge in unbridled passions believing it to be love.
Like natural faith, it is the same with this kind of love. It only serves to further disgrace man.
Can an extramarital relationship be considered an expression of pure love? What kind of love promotes betrayal, hatred, and death?
Only if it is a satanic love!
The principle of authentic and pure love is that it never ends. It goes far beyond feelings or sexual experiences.
It is heavenly, as the sacred text says:
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hope all things, endure all things. Love never fails… 1 Corinthians 13.4-8
