Ungodly Romantic Love
Our First Love is suppose to be to be reserved for the Lord alone.
Therefore it has to be said and emphasied that no love should be more
or even equal to our love for Him. And consequently any romantic love
that goes beyond this bound should be considered 'ungodly' according
to the First Commandment. This even though the so-called church
usually worship and praise their earthly selfish marriages to their
Even though scriptures say distinctly, 'Thou shalt love the Lord
Thy God with all thy heart, and soul, and mind and strength.' and
we are to have 'no other gods' before Him ! which would have to
include even our own mates ... Right ? So why do they miss this and
why does the world go on worshipping romantic love as if it is the
solution to all our problems. For since when can another person no matter how good they are for us, be our total reason
for living. All such idealism fails in the end, as man or woman is not the answer to our
lonliness and needs. For isn't the only One that can truly make us completely happy, the One that made us in the first
For as the great prophet Isaiah said "Thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer
the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. (Isaiah 54: 5)
Jesus is both our Husband whether we are male or female, and He is the God of the Whole Earth and Universe, and is
Our MAKER as well. He created us for himself. Therefore we should understand that to obey our Husband is to obey Him
lovingly as our first love., for we are to have no other gods before him including our own mates here on Earth.
Our earthly and spiritual marriages now are extremely important for us to learn love and to reproduce and much much
more, but they aren't suppose to be EQUAL with our relationship with the Lord. Worldly people and worldly doctrine has
been so ingrained into people that they think another human being is the total solution to their emptiness, when it just
isn't and was never intended to be.
We are mere humans and aren't the total answer to another persons's dreams. Only the Lord is !!! He is everyone's ideal
mate. And He alone will never leave them nor forsake them.
The insanity is that men and women get convinced into thinking that they just have to search out the perfect mate to be
happy. YES they need a mate as the Lord knew, but that kind of mating without the Lord can turn into self worship or god
or goddess worship of another human being. Us, mates just aren't perfect and anyone that is looking for the perfect one is
going to fall short of the perfection they are hoping and dreaming about.
Romantic love when taken to the extreme can be extremely ungodly and merely a cover-up for man worship and woman
worship. It needs to be in its place and secondary but not foremost in all of our minds and hearts, if you were to ask me
and if you were to read your Bibles.
For surely the only way any of our relationships will truly last is if we put the Lord first in our marriages. Our husbands
and wives can't come before the Lordor even be equal with the Lord, for we are suppose to go on with the Lord no matter
what. With or without or right over anything that would try to separate us from our FIRST Love. If we do this and have this
in our heart then surely our present marriages can withstand anything and we shall stay together by His Grace.
In my opinion, what's yours ?

Revelation 2:4-5 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore
from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy
candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Mark 12:29-30 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one
Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy
strength: this is the FIRST commandment.
