Gospel singer Nathaniel Bassey says love that is forced isn’t really love and that it has to be by choice not something that is influenced.
This comes after the musician and songwriter posted a message on his social media account, revealing the account of how a christian brother was trying to influence a lady to love him back.

Over the weekend I had to counsel a friend. And while doing so I made this statement. You see God is a God of Love. In fact, HE IS LOVE. And His word says He so loves the world. So much He gave His only son to die. It is also not His will that any should perish, scripture says. But you and I know that as we speak many are perishing on their way to Hell. And that’s because “…this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light..” John 3:19. As a younger Christian, I used to ask why God Who has all POWER, Unlimited in might and ability could not just prevail upon man (men and woman) to believe, accept and love Him. Why He wouldn’t just snap His fingers and all men are saved.But as I grew I began to discover that this would violate His very core nature of Love. I noticed in verses like Rev 3:20, How He stands at the door of the very ones He CREATED knocking, and waiting to be asked in. The one we call THE DOOR, waiting at the door. And that’s because, if it’s Love it has to be by choice. If He forces His way in, then it’s not love. That’s why He made man a free moral agent. Even angels don’t have such a privilege. So back to my friend. He’d been on the case of this sister for sometime, whom He claims to really love. And feels so convinced she is God’s will for His life. But sadly, The Sister doesn’t feel the same. But then has tried to push things a little hard and getting the sister already upset. So I said to Him (A very great guy), You know, If it’s BY FORCE, then it’s not IN LOVE. Even when people influence people to love them, and they seem to do, somewhere in their hearts, they’d lack that fulfillment, knowing TRUE LOVE must be by CHOICE. Anyway, just my numerous musing moments. Happy New Week Saints.🙂
