    If we are not careful with this though, it becomes a cop-out. I have often heard Christians say things along the lines of: “I love you, because I have to. But if I weren’t a Christian…”
    It almost gets to the point, where amongst Christians it is even more meaningful to say that you like somebody than it is to say that you love somebody – because we are under obligation to love, but we have no obligation to like. So, in a way, like becomes the new love…
    But when we understand that love is an action of the will for the good of the other person, and like is a feeling of affinity – I think that helps us understand what it means to love those whom we may not particularly like.
