The Two Loves of Valentine's Day
The Ignorant Fishermen Blog ^ | 2/11/10 | DJP I.F.

Posted on 02/13/2010 1:37:20 PM PST by The Ignorant Fisherman

This February 14th multitudes around the world will be celebrating Valentine’s Day. Roses and candy for loved ones, jewelry and dinner dates - it seems harmless enough - but many truly do not understand the swift, underlying current of the mood of the occasion and how its “24/ 7” godless spirit affects our society and culture. Please do not misunderstand me. I do not want to ruin anyone’s Valentines Day. Those things (candy, roses etc.) are perfectly fine and harmless enough, but it is key during this holiday to understand the immoral, decadent spirit which is masqueraded as love when it really is only lust and self-serving.

On Valentine’s Day multitudes will engage in the self-pleasing, licentious and immoral acts of fornication that are outside of the timeless, God-ordained and holy institution of marriage. These will be following in the steps of Cupid while they are unconsciously building wrath for themselves in the coming Day of Judgment (Prov. 5:18-23; Rom. 1:32; 1 Cor. 6:9; Gal. 5:19; Eph. 5:5; Heb. 13:4).

I know I am sounding like a "square," but stand on the top of the mountain and look down at what this seed of godless, licentiousness behavior will lead and where it has led. When natural law and heavenly absolutes are abandoned and left out of the “love" equation and definition, expect only societal devastation and ravishing of the soul to follow.

I think you pick your battles and this is not one of them. If they’re fornicating for Valentine’s Day chances are they’re doing it on any other day as well. Nothing to do with Saint Valentine’s Day.

But I’m sure there will be some obscene prices paid for gifts.

Renee, Because it would seem that you missed the contrast between the two different aspects of love that is out there and where they both lead. Are you a social conservative?

o...k.. I comprehend it now.. D days

The question to ask to all is which love are you using... God’s or Man’s...? that is the ultimate question for someone to personally ask ones self for the D days theory

I’ll add something here. You are attacking eros as an ultimately misleading and sinful way to approach relationships, with an emphasis on the lust. I think that the whole “romantic” ideal is ultimately a false one — whether satisfying lust outside of marriage is involved or not. I think the idea that marriage requires an ongoing Disney princess type love makes a lot of women very unhappy in their marriages when otherwise the husband is faithful, employed, loving and doing thier part. I’ve seen almost exactly that break up 2 marriages (a married man and a married woman cheating with each other and falling in love . . . both cheaters had spouses that from the outside looked like they were doing what they should in a marriage but the woman wanted the passion and thought that was what was required for a good marriage).

I don’t want you to miss understand me. Passion is a very healthy aspect of the marriage but passion alone can not make a marriage work. You need a far greater selfless love – Agape love. Have you ever read the Song of Solomon? The Hebrew language is very strong and detailed on the intimacy between the MARRIED couple; also 3 different Hebrew words for love are used speaking of total intimacy in the Marriage.

In Marriage all goes, there are no boundaries to the intimacy... it should be passionate.. it’s God’s design! He made it that way. The Bible is full of such passages that speak about that.

Sad to say that lot of Conservative Christians etc..are dull… I can see your point... but not all are. A dull intimate life will lead to adultery or a separate tolerating marriage. The bottom line is that you need a greater love to make any marriage work. Not a narcissistic Eros one.

Here’s a great read!

Really? Are there photographs?

I didn’t say anything about Christians being dull. I don’t even think that; why would I? I suggest you try to figure out what a person is posting rather that making an assumption about what they are saying . . . and I’m not saying that in a nasty way at all . . . I mean it as constructive, since you obviously will keep posting things.
