Skip to comments.The Two Loves of Valentine's Day
Posted on 02/13/2010 1:37:20 PM PST by The Ignorant Fisherman
This February 14th multitudes around the world will be celebrating Valentines 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 anyones 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 Valentines 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.

More awkward Valentine’s day....Tiger Woods or John Edwards???
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.
Tiger. Hands down.
We do fondue. : )
That’s great! your married though! I buy my wife a flower (rose and a card) harmless enough.... but it’s what is out there that is deadly. Read the post and see what it’s about then you’ll get what we were trying to say.
sorry to sound like a prewed.. but that wasn’t the message of the post. read the post then you will see what we were driving for...
How many times are you planning on pimping this article from your blog?
Why assume that I didn’t read the post?
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?
I only have sex on days with a d in them.
No harm that I can see. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Until you get the message... I sense that maybe somebody didn’t get a Valentine today....
God Loves you (John 3:16).. that there...is real
Like MonDay, TuesDay, WednesDay, ThursDay, FriDday, SaturDay, SunDay.
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
Pretty much none of your damned business.
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.
Heres a great read!
