The programming in our lizard brain (the really primitive bit of our brain) assesses a person and finds they match the criteria it has for a good breeding partner. It sends signals to the rest of the brain which floods itself with endorphins and oxytocin.
The higher brain then creates a narrative that makes this into something special and elevates them above all other human beings in the same kind of way that people on LSD often claim to have spiritual and religious experiences.
Because we were made in God's image, and he loves.
I agree with you!
I'm sorry you don't get it. It's not an easy thing to grasp. But God doesn't hate. You just don't like that he doesn't play by your rules, or fits in your box. You don't understand him and you're not alone. But really, would you expect aliens that visit us to play by our rules? Our ideas? We know so little of the universe but somehow we have all the hubris to believe we understand it all or think we know anything. We don't.
How did I infer that? Because we humans do? We also are not exactly like him either. We have physical bodies and he does not. God is sinless. We are not.
When you consider what God's image may be and when he created us, he did it before Jesus was born. Ergo, not all of us is all of him. That can be inferred as well.
Not all of us is him. What does that mean to you? Obviously we are not God, so not all of him is us. If we were just like God, why would we need a Savior? Why do we sin still if we are God and God is us? Smh
Where are you getting that God hates? Is it in the bible? How has he excluded his own children to you when he hasn't? And why are you adding words to what I've written here?
You inferred what you wanted from my answer. Do not put it on me that I was wrong.
Lack of comprehension isn't my fault. You assumed something I did not say. I said, 'God loves. He made us in his image. So we can love too'. (basically the reverse of my first statement) What's so mysterious about that? The only inference you can get from this is that 'because God loves, we can too'. You are the one who started the inference that God hates. You did that.
mate... birth... die
We're emotion junkies who want the permanent high that comes with true Love, but we've become too distracted and materialistic to find, so we make do with cheap imitations and pat ourselves on the back for finding something we really didn't find at all.
To establish communal ties to ensure the survival of our genes, and to breed.
It's supposed to find us a suitable person to mate with,I think
So it's all not so pointless?
Love or lust?
Are only mission is to love each other
