Whoever acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him and he in God. We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him. (1 John 7-8, 15-16)
Readers know we have an affinity for reinterpretting pop songs according to a Christian hermeneutic.
I have to say that I really like this song from Incubus. And, it definitely expresses the paschal nature of Christian love--"love hurts; love stings, when it transcends the bad things."
Or, the opening lines--think Psalm 42 (43)!
Deum, qui laetificat iuventutem meam, confitebor tibi in cithara! Deus, Deus meus!
I think "cithara" can reasonably be rendered "guitar" :-)
