Here is the link to the Introduction for this Series.
DOCTRINE #48: LOVE
Love is the giving of a value to a person without expecting a value in return from that person. Saying "I love you" is an admission that you owe someone because you've received more than what you have given. Uniqueness can allow two people to both say "I love you" to each other. Love can become enabling if you know that continuing to give a value will cause that person to be able to do something destructive.

During April and May, I am posting sixty Doctrines. These sixty Doctrines ought to be used as a diagnostic tool: you ought to begin with Doctrine #1 and see how far you get before you disagree.
If you believe the Doctrine that is presented above, then continue to the next Doctrine.
If you don't believe the Doctrine that is presented above, look at some of the corresponding Scriptures through links to Jonathan's blog and/or look at the philosophical explanation through the links to posts on this blog.
If you still don't believe the Doctrine in question, take some time to state your will what your doctrine is for this topic. Identify the Scripture to support it...and then continue to the next Doctrine.
This is such an critical Doctrine, we did an entire month's Series in four weekly posts:
-Love Is The Ultimate Effect
-I Love You
