Eros is the Greek name for this being and also the Greek word for love (i.e., LUST), which describes the unbridled sexual passions of fallen man (Rom. 1:24, 28, 29). The sole desire of Eros love is to find self-gratification or self-fulfillment in another individual. Eros love may give the individual a genuine feeling for or attraction to someone, but the bottom line of this “love” is that it is rooted in a narcissistic (self-centered) mindset (Gal. 5:19; Eph. 5:5; James 1:14-15; Jude 1:10).
Eros love NEVER seeks to give for the betterment of another individual. Eros love only asks the question, “What can you give me?” What can I get from you to satisfy my hungry, famished soul and my unbridled sexual passions? The reality is that Eros love can never satisfy the unregenerate soul of fallen man; only God can (Matt. 11:28-30; John 6:35; James 3:8). Eros love is a burning fire. Once the object is consumed, desire is left looking for more to feed its unquenchable appetite. The more it devours, the more it wants, until the individual is completely ravished by this monster in its all-consuming addiction. When this Eros monster is left wanting and unfulfilled, anger, resentment, hatred, envy and bitterness begin to manifest themselves in the possessed individual’s heart and life (Rom. 1:24-26). Thus are created - and grow even heavier - chains of bondage for the captives of this “Eros-erotic despot."
Do you know the agape LOVE of Almighty God that is found ONLY in His Son Jesus Christ? God so LOVED you that he sent His Son to pay the price for your transgressions against the RIGHTEOUS standards of Almighty God (Rom. 10:4; 1 Peter 3:18). My dear friend, I do not know how to say anything more wonderful than that! The one true God and Creator of the Universe truly loves you (1 John 4:10)!Don’t be stupid and follow cupid. Follow the One who LOVED you and gave Himself to you (Gal. 2:20). Place your trust in Him today. You will NEVER be the same – no, Never!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
