Whether religious love can be expressed in similar terms to interpersonal love is a matter for philosophical debate. Religious 'love' might be considered a euphemistic term, more closely describing feelings of deference or acquiescence. Christians use the term love to express the devotion the follower has to God. This love can be expressed by prayer, service, good deeds, and personal sacrifice. Reciprocally, God loves all of creation. But, with "religious" love there comes many interpretations.
