The point I am making is that there is alot of judging going on with limited knowledge of the facts and that theologies are produced by theories within this limited knowledge. Needless to say we as a whole are more ignorant than our primative ancestor becuase we promote limited theories over Biblical truth.

ALL love is from God, lust has nothing to do with what we're talking about here.
Her love is limited by this world Gods isnt.

Not at all, there is a love that is worldly and then there is Gods love, worldly love is much like lust while Gods love permiates the soul.

Without the love of God her worldly love will die with her, she needs to accept Christ or she will be limited to this worldly love. As I said the love she shows would be an excellent addition to Gods love but only she can accept or reject.

God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number fill the earth and subdue it'. Genesis 1:28

Robin i know it's tradition to believe the bible is a rule book, but i don't accept that.

No earlier you said something about her love not being really love, but lust. Robin what are you talking about?

What is "worldy" love?

Explain, spell it out... in detail what you are saying, here.
(if you don't mind.)

Restricting your knowledge to the Bible (a compilation of writings from 4000 +years ago to no more recent than 2000 years ago) is the most asinine position one could possibly take toward life. Stagnating in ancient ignorance is no way to live. You may feel more ignorant than our primitive ancestors (and I would not dispute it) . . . but we know so much more about ourselves and our world that to make such a claim is preposterous on its face.

Moderator cut: edit. Perhaps you are confused between lust and love . . . but I doubt June is. They have nothing to do with each other. Lust is lust and love is love. Can they exist simultaneously . . . of course . . . but there is no confusing them.

I'm talking about loving each other,not wordly things.of course lust isn't love,but certainly ppl of ALL faiths do indeed have love for others.otherwise they wouldn't be human.but they are...made in God's image.
