Hitting the Trifecta!

In a comment on my post below -- the part about how using "to believe" as an all-purpose verb of cognitive production can fuzz up thinking about belief as the act of religious faith -- cricket writes:
I think--that is to say it occurs to me--that the word "hope" suffers from the same problem.
And what shall we say about the water carried wood chopped by "to love"?

Can it just be a coincidence that all three theological virtues are muddled by common speech?
