Eros
Greek name
Greek Έρως, Έρωτας
Romanization eros, erotas

Eros is one of the four loves, which is enjoyment of sensory pleasures, erotic or sexual love. The Greek word eros is not mentioned in the New Testament

In descending order of excellence the four loves are:
Agapeo (ag-uh-pay-oh): Unconditional love; the love of God in the renewed mind coming forth in outward manifestation of selfless benevolence
Storge: Love of family; Parent/child, siblings, cousins, etc.; patriotic love of one's country and people. In a very close family, agape is felt as well
Phileo: Love between friends, and in its highest nobility of loyalty it can express itself in agape
Eros: The sense of being in love; romantic love; also the love of pleasant things that provide sensual enjoyment; the sensually personal physical pleasure of being dedicated to someone or to something, such as a hobby, a cause or a religion, which in extreme forms can become an obsession or addiction.

The naturalist's love of nature and the esthetic beauty of the material creation for its own sake is a form of eros for what God has made. In some cases Wildlife Preservationists and Conservationists have shown themselves capable of agape for living things and the natural environment apart from any love for man or God.

The Greeks believed that Eros was the innocently mischievous offspring of Aphrodite the goddess of beauty and venereal love who pierced mortals with love or hate. In this latter sense it is possible to be consumed with a love of hating someone or something for the love of hating for its own sake. The Roman equivalent of Eros was Cupid, the root of cupidity, the love of the good life, and in particular love of things one would like to have and enjoy for their own sake and sometimes to display proudly.

Modern secular culture has debased the classic idea of erotic love and appreciation of pleasant things into the narrow sensual depravity of erotic bodily lust alone and the debased addictive cravings generated by porneia (pornographic pleasure) and "recreational" drugs; not only lust but other things—overeating, gambling, violence, speed, personal indulgence in any one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Willingness to sacrifice and die for such things is not agape-love but perversion of the good, a form of idolatry.
