Read an Excerpt

When it comes to defining what love really is, you

only have two options: There's the right one and the

wrong one. The wrong definition of love comes from

society. Society says that love is a feeling. But where do they get this mistaken idea that love is just a mere feeling? Hey, great question. Thanks for asking. You see, in the Bible there are four different Greek words for love. And our society only pays attention to the first three. Let me show you what I mean:

Stergo—A love of complacency and satisfaction. (I

love my job.)

Phileo—A love of fondness or affection. (I love my

friend.)

Eros—A love of passion. (Where we get the English

word "erotic.")

Of those three Greek words, which one do you think

is the most popular with our society? It's "eros" or

passion, isn't it? You see, the average person today thinks that love is merely a physical pleasure or a fabulous feeling. And, folks, there's nothing wrong with passion, in the confines of marriage, that is. It's not only a wonderful emotion, it's a powerful force. In fact, passion is so powerful it's usually what causes people to get married. But the problem is that although passion can get you married, it cannot make a marriage last. Why? Because passion is built on feelings. And the problem with feelings is that they don't last. They're up one minute and down the next. Therefore, if you try to build a relationship on passion, then guess what's going to happen? Your relationship is going to be up one minute and down the next.
