I have always had a problem with this whole 1 Corinthians crap. This is the truth of the sappy, drippy, wovey dovey crap that people lie about when they take their vows. You may disagree with me… but really… how is this flawed?
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
Love is war, early off it is a battle for the attention from the other. It is an ongoing battle afterwards, when the war is won, to quell the envy of others who want what you have. It becomes your duty to ward off predators by showing off your victory to prevent alliances from being made.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Once finding Love, we find it becomes a constant battle with the other to seek compromise and sign treaties of cease fire. Though these parcels of victory are often practiced, occasionally they become lost in bureaucracy, thus creating new skirmishes.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Often, when a skirmish arises, the parties in question must choose the lesser of two evils.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Once the treaties have been signed and agreed upon, it is up to the parties in question to prevent border wars from other nations who wish to usurp natural resources.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Don’t be a douche!
