Love is NOT a computer virus (pt2)

by Craig on November 29, 2011

You might already know that a nasty virus practically obliterated my computer last week.

Blogging is hard without a computer. Actually, if the computer hadn’t crashed I might have crashed myself – more on that tomorrow. But first, a little bit about love…and this…

This is the sequel to part one…
part one is all full of woe and sad
but a little funny too…

‘cause other people’s mishaps are always infinitely more snort worthy than our own.


This virus thing…how does it stack up to love?

I run the list…

Love is patient:

Oh it was patient alright! Evil can be pretty patient – but not love kind of patient.

Love is kind:

It only pretended to be kind. This one kept telling me that my computer was in trouble and I just needed to click on their little button to be safe. It looked like it cared. It said that it cared. But it didn’t care.

Love is not jealous:

Jealous? Oh yeah! It wanted what I have – and didn’t want me to have what I have.

Love is not proud:

I’m sure these guys are plenty proud, and they should be. Their work is first-rate. But pride in being able to do rotten stuff – nope – that’s not love.

Love is not rude:

SO rude!

Love does not seek its own interests:

Gah! It wasn’t much worried about my interests.

Love does not keep a record of wrongs:

I was able to back up documents before it really took over. But one wrong move would have brought on computer Armageddon – passwords stolen, data corrupted etc… I’m pretty sure that if I made a wrong move they’d have noticed it, and stuck the final dagger into my laptop. It kept count alright.

Quick to anger?

Somehow I think that if…
let’s say…
I found out who they were…
and sent the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security…
and my uncle Guido to visit them…
I think they’d prove to be pretty ill tempered.

Love doesn’t rejoice at wrongdoing but in the truth:

This was all about the wrongdoing, and everything was a lie! Fail!

Does it protect?

It said it would protect…
protect itself maybe!

Does it hope?

I guess hope isn’t always good – we can hope in the wrong stuff. I know there’s a spiritual metaphor there somewhere.

Does it have faith?

Guess not all faith is good faith. Do these guys have the right kind of faith? Give me a second…


Does it endure?

Persistence is love – but persistence of evil – nope – that’s not love.

So let’s see…

what’s the verdict?

Is a computer virus love?

Let me think a minute………..

There is definitely imposter, fake ‘love’ out there. Thank you for helping us separate the wolf ‘love’ from the shepherd love, Craig.

I’m thinking, I’m not sure that there’s fake love out there – but more that there are attributes of love which can be twisted – and are twisted all the time by the Enemy of love. It almost boils down to these very simple facts – God loves – the Enemy twists love beyond recognition – and love will win.

A. Thank you – made me think – you took this post beyond where it was intended – and I learned. Your good that way ツ God bless you A

PS – and all that said – you might be right about the fake love. ツ the Enemy is a counterfeiter at heart.

Nope. God’s love is so much more than even Corinthians describes. Praying for you.


Craig November 29, 2011 at 5:48 pm

Katie, I think that may be true – Corinthians 13 is only words – God is above and beyond any words. That’s awesome! That’s comforting too. Awfully insightful of you Katie. Thank you for the prayers – this is an extremely challenging time I’m going through – the computer is just part of it. So thank you – and God bless!

While I realize the seriousness of the situation, this post made me laugh. Glad the not-love virus went away!


Craig November 29, 2011 at 5:41 pm

Ruthiey, I heart that you laughed! For someone with limited means the computer going down – well it’s hard to put in the budget – especially when it needs to be replaced – so yes, it really was serious – but that being said – this was meant to be funny – I actually kind of smiled when I wrote it.The not-[ove virus had a price tag – but onward and upward right? God bless you Ruthiey, God bless ツ

other than the fact that you may have lost your computer… I also laughed. It was fun to see your input here! I also had a call this week from some fake lovers that wanted to help me get a virus that they said had attacked my computer. My computer’s fine and God’s love is always patient, always kind…gosh they were im… patient! Cry wolf for real!

the really bad thing about this virus was that I didn’t have to click any buttons – if I had I think I would’ve gotten far more damage – I didn’t download anything – I was in a very reputable place – or at least thought I was – the virus software was running – and still got through – but – I really hearted writing how the virus is NOT love – it was very cathartic. I’m glad you liked it. God bless you Susan, and thank you. And I’m glad you stayed virus free!
