STUDY QUESTIONS:

 


1.      How would you explain the difference between eros, phileo and agape love?

a.)  Eros is the kind of love that is based on the physical traits. And unless it is redeemed by the Lord’s presence; this type of love can end up being possessive, since it always seeks to 1st conquer and then control.  

b.) Phileo is a unique kind of love like the one you have for a companion or pal. It refers to loving one another just like your brother or sister.

c.) Agape is the divine love of Jesus and the Father.

2.     What is unconditional love? How do you show this kind of love to others?

According to the book Real Love, unconditional love is, in essence, true love -- so different from the kind of love most of us have known all our lives that it deserves adefinition of its own. Unconditional love is caring about the happiness of another person without any thought for what we might get for ourselves.

 

3.     What does Romans 8:35-39 tell us about God's love?

It means Christ loves you and there is nothing that can ever make him stop. Once you are a Christian "in Christ", you are totally safe with regard to salvation. The love of God is provided by the power of God, and nothing is strong enough to force you away from that love. Not even your own sin, for example. It is a verse of assurance. After all, if you aren't saved from your own sin, you aren't really saved at all.

You can't really get all of that from just this verse, but when you read the whole bible, and all of the verses related to this issue, that is the picture that emerges.
