LOVE IN ITS THREE PARTS OR DIVISIONS In 1961 Dr. Martin l. king gave a speech to an Interracial Fellowship. He titled his speech Love, Law and Civil Disobedience. King stated: “If you are hit don’t hit back, if you are curse do not curse back”. This plea was in conjunction with a Love ethics standard for his non-violent movement. He then divided up love into three parts” 1. Eros Love is Romantic love, never shaken, not bending 2. Philia Love is intimate affection between personal friends, reciprocal Love, you love because you are loved its friendship. The City of Philadelphia is called the “City of brotherly love is named after this concept. There is another negative aspect to philia and that is Fellatio which has a similar sound and twist with Philia. 3. Agape Love is the highest form of love. Agape love is a willingness to go to go to any length to restore the community. Agape is understanding, redeeming, goodwill for all men. It’s loving others for their sake, with no discrimination between worthy and unworthy people. Agape love is directed towards friends or enemy’s. Agape is overflowing love purely spontaneous, unmotivated and groundless. It’s impossible to execute Agape Love with just faith and no works. Paul desires faith expressing itself through love by reducing the law to a single command to love your neighbor as yourself (Galatians 5:6-15) but wishes in verse 12 that those who disagree with him “emasculate” themselves. Paul didn’t emasculate himself but was done by a Dog (Emperor Domitian who also sodomizes Paul) see Philippians 3:2. Paul was blind to that real Love substance being involved in the killing of James the brother of Jesus in 62Ad; making his conversion by Jesus in the late 30’s or 40’s an absolute mockery and fiction. (See A Testament of Hope: The Essential writings and speeches of MLK Edited by J. Washington pages: 19, 20, 14, 46-7, 140-141). From these standards MLK set forward in conjunction with the NT letters St. Paul would be incomplete Love, Cold Love and unbalanced Love because he cursed anybody who didn’t believe in his version/gospel (Galatians 1:8-9), which were directed toward the Brother of Jesus, James and his followers and opposite of Jesus to bless those that curse (Matthew 5:44). Clearly Paul had the love of Eros and Philia but he had nothing to do with the most important love of all and that was Agape. Paul sought the fair exchange of love only between him and his Church members which would put him in the box with Philia love (2 Corinthians 6:11-13). Paul makes mockery of James, etal for “putting up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or pushes himself forward or slaps you in the face. To my shame I admit that we were too weak for that!” (2 Corinthians 11:20-21). This would exclude him from Agape love because he returns evil for evil and can’t Turn the right/left cheek ( Matthew 5:39). The Stoics advocated that if a person who uses force to stand in your way go to another direction and do another good virtue (Meditations VI:50). From the Instruction of Ptahhotep which consisted of 37 sayings which influenced some of the proverbs states: “He who provokes gets into trouble… When you answer one who is fuming, Avert (Turn) your face (Cheek), control yourself (see Matthew 5:39) The flame of the Hot-heart sweeps across (Hot heart is unreasoning uncontrolled). He who steps gently, his path is paved… When he turns his face back to you after raging There will be peace from his Ka As ill will comes from opposition, So goodwill increases Love”. (Ancient Egyptian Lit By Miriam Lichtheim p.70) Paul lies when he states he suffers abuse, beatings and not resort to sin by allowing himself to inwardly Burn (Hot-head/Heart) see 2 Cor 11: 24-29). He just told his he was weak at people pushing/slapping him around and cursed people who disagreed with him. Jesus would speak of Paul in a quote like this: “Because of the increase of wickedness the love of most will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12). If Paul went before a Judge in an Egyptian court his heart/mind would be judged to see if it was Hot or Cold or balanced in Lukewarm. The Stoics would be concerned if you were “Cold or warm” (Meditations Book VI :2). In the Egyptian court on the balance scales they were concerned that your heart would balanced towards a feather of truth called Maat/Tefnut/balance). If you could say 42 negative confessions/admonitions of Maat you could pass on to heaven. “Lukewarm” was symbolic of Tefnut/Balance because Tefnut was born by being spit out in Egyptian mythology and Rev 3: 16 tips its hat to Tefnut with a clue “So because you are Lukewarm nether Hot or Cold-Iam about to spit you out of my mouth”. Saying that your Heart/mind wasn’t Hot or Cold is similar to the sayings negative saying you have not done a Sin. Lets look at number 14 and 25 of the 42 negative sayings: 14. I have not lost my temper and become angry 25. I have not burned with rage ( Paul lies says he doesn’t burn inwardly towards abuse 2 Cor 11) Thanks to the poetry of Ptahhotep we can understand the deeper meanings of Hot-Heart. The book of Revelations is concerned about your Faith and deeds, about the Love of your heart towards others. Just like Maat, Revelations wanted to your if your heart was hot or cold or “Lukewarm”. The optimized place to be was to have your heart warm. Not to be Hot in your passions towards sin to others or cold in your love to mistreatment. To back it up with more evidence I will present a quote from Horus on those going to or in heaven: “Iam Horus who live for million of years, whose flame lighteth upon your face and blazeth in your hearts” Egyptian Book of the Dead By E.A. Wallis Budge p.356 We know this flame isn’t making the heart hot because that was a negative term in Egypt so it was its balanced counterpart of being warm. And those with the light on the faces are those called the shining ones. “Ra coming in peace to make to live the hearts of the shining ones” (ibid p.137). Notes: These notes come from Miriam Lichtheim in her quoting the above poem: “ The heart as the seat of reason with the bell as the seat of unreasoning feelings, desires and appetites. Hot-heart is the unreasoning, uncontrolled person” ( p.78).
