Love

Love is what we live and die for.

You do…seriously.

The Greeks had four names for it which Lewis, in his way, elucidated.  You should also read Anders Nygren and Denis deRougement, and others.

Here is the deal…agape and eros rule.

Nygren takes it into the paint when he said (in the middle of 1500 pages) “eros recognizes value in the beloved and seeks to possess it; Agape creates value in the beloved.”

Do you see the difference?

Love creates value where there is none.
