I love you
1 Corinthians 13
King James Version
13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

are also misled in our Love for *others** (see note below) In making assessments such as:
See Link Understanding Matthew 23
This right here is true Love. Because, if God didn't truly love His creation (those, that whom, which belonged to him) He never would have turned His back on His only begotten Son.
18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 The burden of the word of the Lord to Israel by Malachi.
"’Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God;’ John 1:13. The words have a dependence on what goes before, and therefore I must direct you to them for the right understanding of it. You have it thus,--”’He came to his own, but his own received him not; but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them which believe on his name; which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, but of God.’" In …

(note: agape love meaning had been perverted in the early church to mean a love feast of brotherly love in breaking bread *remembering the Lord’s last supper* which which was later connected to the Catholic Pagan Eucharist itself, here's further details Link. ) Also note the King James version translates agape as Charity in its proper context as God's expression of true caring Christian love vs an emotional feeling of passion or emotional desire.
God loved his creation. Note: By properly understanding world in proper context,we also understand that Ephesians Chapter 1; John 3:14-21, 35,36, John Chapter 17; 1 Peter 1:4-5; 2 Peter 2:5-8 are clear that God knew before time who belong to him- who'd receive him and who would not, even though God wants none to perish- 2 Peter 3:9. 1 Timothy 2:4. God created man with a sovereign will to choose his own destiny. Genesis 2:16-17, Revelation 3:20.
Truth: God Loved His creation in a supernatural perfect love and as such to save it from eternal Judgement *because perfect love demands perfect accountability and justice, (see harmonizing love and hate in the Bible link Biblical Love and Hate Harmonized ) after the fall (of Adam and Eve in the garden), God the Father (of the godhead, see link on understanding the biblical godhead vs the pagan trinity GODHEAD LINK ) sent His son Jesus Christ the bodily form and image of God (see Godhead link) to save creation from its pending destruction.
