Modern Romance: Love Which Isn’t

Modern Love which Isn't

CHEAP PLASTIC LOVE

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
–Matthew 24:12

Real love endures.

Real love is a rock.

Real love never fails.

And real love is something enjoyed by both people, not just one.

The modern myths surrounding romantic LOVE! abound and are reinforced daily through the media, culture and entertainment.

Love is like cocaine

Everywhere one looks, one hears of “love” which isn’t.

Though something of a “love industry” has sprung up in the last few decades, several generations of Americans have NO idea what love is. What they know of love they’ve learned from songs, TV, movies and a culture which works to keep them in the dark about true love.

Unfortunately they’ve been indoctrinated that  “love” is some sort of irresistible force.

And many times, IT IS.

Though often, one of those involved is not only completely unaware of the manipulation, and will usually struggle against any attempts to be free of their slavery.

TRUE LOVE VS MODERN ROMANCE

Real, true love is not parasitic association.

One person cannot be “in love” with someone who is uncaring or blasé. IF the other person is not “in love,” then what the one person has is NOT love, it is obsession, worship or something else.

But it is NOT love.

Real, true love is something that is enjoyed by BOTH people; the modern version is a PERversion. One person seemingly in control, the other (who is convinced he or she is in “love“), is along for the ride and provides most, (if not ALL) of the trappings of a loving union.

Real, true love is NOT a spell that one person alone is under. That is NOT love. That is obsession, idol worship, enslavement, compulsion, a form of control, something: but it is NOT love.

Often the enslaved one will attribute the unhappiness as a natural “part of being in love.”

After all, don’t countless songs and TV shows claim this very thing happens? Doesn’t everyone know about the “pain of love“?

Those cool singers wouldn’t lie, would they?

The youth, being deceived about love, perhaps believe love begins as some sort of obsession (as the linked article claims) and then slowly dies out until one or the other of the two people caught in this sordid mix of chemicals, manipulation, lust and treachery leave to pursue something more fulfilling.

Such as cocaine or superpowers or total self-awareness or their next “lover” (victim).

AFTERWARDS, the formerly enslaved person usually heads right back into ANOTHER “bad relationship” and the unhappiness cycle starts all over again.

“As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.”
–Proverbs 26:11

Wondering what they did wrong, these poor, deceived souls swallow MORE lies, offered by those who provided the original ones.

One such lie is that eventually, both people will be in love.  IF ONLY the enslaved one is patient and “waits it out” the object of their obsession, (the controlling one) will also be “just as in love” as they are.

This lie is usually told by someone who is older and who “made things work“–AS IF love were a job.

Another such fable is the “soulmate.”

Love didn’t work out?

It’s because you weren’t with your “soulmate!”

And they wonder why their “love” WHICH NEVER WAS is not the same as what they see on TV or hear in the songs to which they listen.

They speculate: “Maybe love wasn’t meant for me?

Real love is virtually extinct: crowded out by the cheap, tawdry plastic love promoted by the rich and celebrated, the culture and the Corporate Media; and, practiced by the last several generations who cannot figure out why this imitation love never quite works for them as promised.

It’s a great pity: not knowing anything other than what they’ve been told since childhood, the deceived are condemned to wander from one false “relationship” to another.

Confusing the occasional, rare few moments of a chemical surge; of animal lust, with love.  Confusing ANY sign that the person they are “in love with” cares for them with love. Confusing and confused, they are SO CERTAIN what love really is, but are confused why they cannot find it.

They are the spiritual equivalent to the Flying Dutchman: ever searching, ever hoping, never finding, never to rest.

REAL, TRUE LOVE

How has it gotten to this point? Why has love “waxed [grown] cold“?

It’s part of the end times in which we live.

What is a person searching for the “real deal;” real, honest-to-goodness LOVE to do?

There is an answer.

But most moderns, not believing the problem just described, will certainly not believe the solution. Rejecting the Word of God, they condemn themselves to live by the lies of men.

Which is why they will NEVER find love.

They will find lust.

They will find chemical romance.

For many, “love” will continue to be a feeling of being sweaty, empty and trampled-upon.

Oh, they will find temporary moments of pleasure they confuse with real love. In short, they will find more misery and unhappiness.

But real, true love will elude them because they are not looking for love: they are searching for what they have been told love is.

They do not know (indeed CANNOT know) true love: only the popular fake substitute the world’s been selling for the past few centuries or so.

And which they buy with their whole being; their whole heart–until it turns out not to be love either.

“Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Love never fails.”
–1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

Tender Mercies of the Lord: Will Not Always Be Available

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
John 20:31

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
