Courtesy of bible-basics-layers-of-understanding.com  Often times in today’s swirling world, we, especially teenage couples, use the phrase “I love you” after being in a relationship for only two days.

For those of us who invest ourselves into biblical and theological research, pouring over books being intellectually and spiritually mined for a closer understanding of God in some particular aspect of his character, his ways, and his book, the answer can get complicated.
