Eros

Eros is a lasting union of hearts, minds, bodies, and souls. It is therefore the highest form of love and contains elements of agape and phileo loves. True eros is not infatuation or lust. It always results in marriage, with one’s spouse on earth and with Jesus Christ in heaven. Earthly marriage is the best representation of the holy relationship between Jesus and his bride, the church.
