The purpose of this thesis is to single out Christian Love ̆χγά τ̌?. as the only love worthy of the name and as that prescribed by God for young people and for people of all time. We shall contrast Christian Love with other so-called “loves” and show the distinctive differences between them. We shall, furthermore, demonstrate how Christian Love can and should be used by young people as a lodestar through all of life, as well as a standard of judgment, or test, for the solution of ethical problems and questions.
