"I FEEL I LOVE GOD, BUT I DON'T FEEL I AM WHAT YOU WOULD CALL A RELIGIOUS PERSON."

“Perhaps if you have spoken these words you are unsure of the true definition of love, and perhaps have overestimated the ideal of being religiously inclined or devout.

Love is many things.  Love is a sharing of one’s self unselfishly.  Love is expressing hope in one’s actions, thoughts, and deeds.  Love is understanding, instead of criticism, negativism.  Love is sacrifice.  Love has purpose to it.

True love is not always recognized because it involves so much a part of one’s life.  People use the word ‘love’ loosely.  They say they love a particular sport, they love a particular home, they love a particular person, they love to be in a particular place, they love the idea of something, they love certain foods.  The word ‘love’ is many times a habit in over-expression, just a familiarity in associations expressing importance on a specific person, item, situation or thing.

In the last fifteen years, men have become so love conscious that they have omitted what love is all about.  They use it in everything.  They use it to get what they want.  They use it to perpetuate a friendship, an idea, or to possess a person.

In true love, in pure love, there is no lust, there is no gluttony, there is no selfishness, there is no patronizing, there is no compromise.  True Love, as God loves man, is a Love of Generosity, Compassion, Sincerity, Dignity, Respect and Honor.  True love is flexible, sometimes personal, sometimes impersonal.  True love shows, but it is not falsely demonstrative.  Pure love has meaning, balance, structure.  Pure love has reason.

We live in a time of false love, that in its very existence, demonstrates a lack of true worth, crudeness, vulgarity, insincerity, selfishness, permissiveness, promiscuity, and indifference.

Let us look at love as God intended it to be.  Love for Him through the Faith we understand, has reason to it, purpose for it, sound intention in it; its Goal:  to one day live Eternally with Him.

We recognize His Unselfish Love in the Generosity of His Physical Birth, His Physical Sacrifice, His Delivery to the world of Christianity for the Purpose of man’s Soul.

Pure love has benefits to it that last, are not fleeting, and offer stability, soundness, and support reality, and are supported by this reality in a depth that everything that is termed ‘love’ and is not love, cannot give.  Pure love is the portrayal of decency, morality, justice and mercy.”
