Faith promotes love, and love is the most effectual ingredient in a living faith.  Love is dependent on faith, for a being cannot be truly loved and, especially, loved above all other beings, who is not looked upon [and believed to be] a real being.  And then, love, again, enlarges and promotes faith because we are more apt to believe and give credit to, and be more disposed to trust in, those we love than in those we do not. – Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)
