EROS: Man’s effort; it assumes that man’s salvation is his own work AGAPE: God’s grace; salvation is the work of divine love

When you say stuff like this, and identify eros with Catholicism and agape with Protestantism, you're just setting up a tired Reformation polemic that contains no agape and vanishingly little truth, to boot.
