In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"The word love comes from the Old English lufu, which is similar to the Old High German luba meaning to love which comes from the Old English lēof meaning dear, and the Latin lubēre meaning to please. So to love someone is to be pleased by and have the desire to please someone held dear to you. But what is love in the Christian sense of the word? Aside from speaking to God directly, the Bible is a good place to start, specifically the New Testament."
