Lust is also an affection discharge unlawfully.
Lust is wrong exhibition of Love, just like wrong usage of drug.

When you love, you show affection and when you lust you show affection too. But the intention, process and end result are 3 significant factors that help to solve the mixing up of Love & Lust.

Excerpt:

Many time in my life, I have seen many young ladies and look forward to marry them.  sometimes, there was a sister I so much had feelings to marry even at that teen age. Little did I know that the sister senior me by far.

She had 3 children already before I got married. Meaning that she got married 10 years before mine.

In fact, she was my ‘Alaga’ on my own wedding day. This true life story of mine is one of the experience that opened my eyes to tonight's topic many few ago.

The definition of Love is generally known and naturally identify as an affection. Of course Lust is also an affection.

Let me quickly go straight to tell us that 95% of natural man are in lust not in love.

I know you will be surprised.

I will explain better.
Here this truth again…
Do you know that new wedded couple on their wedding day have 3 thinking…
Either/both newly wedded couple would be thinking of:
1. Long awaited sexual intercourse... Special assignment that must not be carried over
2. Either/both will be lusting after another lady/guy whom either may seem more pretty/handsome etc.
3. I believe we can keep this till next time.

This is where I am going. Love is an affection discharge on truth and lawfully. I have more than 2 cases...

That doesn't say they are not married. It's a stage of conflict of interest.
Lust is also an affection discharge unlawfully.
Lust is wrong exhibition of Love, just like wrong usage of drug.
Let me quickly give few things that show that one is in lust.

  1. when such focuses much physical body of the opposite sex.
  2. when such is too much interested in sex.
  3. when the relationship relies on fantasy.
  4. when the relationship engages too much secretive activities.

All these are few signs of Lust.

How can you show affection to your partner that you love without lusting?
I was surprised the very day I heard this too. But it did happened. Even as I am married now, many times I have seen a lady and looked at her before I know what is happening... Man's heart is a battlefield that is why we need God's words to fill it on daily basis.
Just continue being good without exhibiting selfish interest. Keep whatever negative things away and do the right things. Never allow that to get into your head or both may found yourself in mess.
Of course yes. That is the challenge now.
The truth is that there are pointers that shows lust. I will say authoritatively that Lust is just a wrong intention of love disposition.

When you love, you show affection and when you lust you show affection too. But the intention, process and end result are 3 significant factors that help to solve the mixing up of Love & Lust.

Beloveth, you can measure such with these 3 earlier mentioned cogent factors
1. Intention
2. Process
3. End result

Intention: Another thing you can't do away when discussing these Tom & Jerry is Relationship. They both engage relationship of twos. What is in mind of them or either? Objective answer to this question will place the person in either Tom family or Jerry family.

Process: Are both ready to take the relationship through objective, rightful and lawful lane? If it is true love relationship and it's expected to lead to marriage, will be bold to meet my parents? Will you wait for till I complete my academic or both agree to go into.

Many jump the right process and are ignorant claiming they are in love...till they found themselves in mess. My people shine your eyes and heart.

End result: entails if the relationship is sustained and able to discharge faithful responsibilities.

If it is not lust, the originality will still be intact. But if it was lust, the original will revealed his true fake.

The result will manifest original intention of either lover. This cut across all forms relationships.

Conclusively, Love and Lust are Siamese twins but on parallel line that cannot meet. So far that they face same direction does not mean they are going to same destination. Neither do they carry same intention, nor follow same process. Of course, they emerged with different result.

COLLAPSE

My advice is that whatever relationship you continue loving people but guide your love with deep knowledge of the words of God. Do away with sentiment and try as much as possible to always define any relationship you find yourself; friendship, courtship and so on.

Don't forget, always love without any mischief.

Question:
What's the difference between romance and lust?

Answer:
Romance is an action or expression to activate sexual desire. In other words, it is sensual physical/bony exercise to arouse sexual hormones mostly between opposite sex. It become lust if it wrongly and unlawfully expressed.
