Subject: Love is a decision??

Surely only Christian love is a decision. By this I mean the love that a Christian must have for the souls of his fellow human beings, whereby you can passionately dislike someone in this world but still hope and pray that they will enjoy heaven in the next.

Personally, I had no "choice" in loving those who are dear to me. I made no decision.
