CHAPTER l

INTRODUCTION

Agape is a Koine Greek word translated into English as love, one which became particularly appropriated in Christian theology as the love of God or Christ for humankind. In the New Testament, it refers to the covenant love of God for humans, as well as the human reciprocal love for God; the term necessarily extends to the love of one’s fellow man. On the 1st chapter of Corinthians verse 8, it denotes Agape as "Christian" love or "charity". In Derek Prince Ministries(1975) defined charity as divine love even loving our enemies. A moral obligation is a duty or responsibility someone feels honor-bound to perform because of personal beliefs and values.

A common example of a moral obligation is the act of charity. People are not legally required to give to charities, but they may feel a personal obligation to do so because they believe it is the right thing to do. When people give to charities, they do so with their personal values as a motivator. Having a sense of moral obligation arises from ideas about right and wrong. “Moral responsibility” cannot exist without the ability to fail to take responsibility.  Like light and darkness, neither can exist without the other. In times of darkness there’s even a single light anywhere, and we serve as that light in helping people who are less fortunate from calamities happened recently.
