Jesus not only said love your neighbour as urself but love ur enemies too!! Christians are supposed 2 love.



Contrary to popular worldly brainwashing real love is not a kiss, a cuddle or the old (bed of utopia) just to paraphrase although they can be physical manifestations of love done in a proper way.





And love is not agreeing with everyone, love is not telling someone wat they wanna hear. Was Jesus the most loving man of all time, Yes!! Did he go round agreeing with everyone, NO!! Did he tolerate everyone, NO!! love is not always tolerant people. Love speaks the truth even tho it hurts heb 4:12





look how jesus even spoke to the Pharisees, he called them brood of vipers Matthew 23:33 but he spoke the truth, and Stephen was even stoned to death for speaking the truth acts 7:56





If a teenager ask’s her mother for money 2 go and buy drugs and the mother says yes! Does the mother love her daughter? Course not. A loving mother would never tolerate that and allow her daughter to be exposed 2 harm.





Same with God he gives us commands 2 keep us in line for our safety. It may not always be wat we want but their there for our protection.





Real love comes from the greek word (Agape) "the highest form of love,


charity" and "the love of God for man and how man should love God" wat the world is lacking, loving someone despite differences not coz of similarities and not just loving people in ur family circle but also strangers too.





1 Corinthians 13


4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


8 Love never ends.

Scripture talks about four kinds of love -- agape, storge, phileo, and Eros // romantic-- family -- brotherly -- God's divine love. One passage is 1 John 4:8

And, yes, society thinks more along the line of romantic or erotic love. And the way that 'love' is shown depends on the relationship involved.
