Why the King James Bible distinguishes Charity from Love

 The Purpose of the Blog is primarily to study the word Love in the King James Bible. The focus is on its use of charity and not love in 24 uses in the New Testament.

I've always wanted to do this study and I have discussed it in several blogs as part of another study.

It was, however, while writing the CASE STUDY exposing the lovesick FOOL, I knew the LOVE STUDY had to done as a separate study. To study this application which reveals a great deal as a background to this study please study:

Case Study My Poster Boy joseph The Love Sick FOOL (thethirdheaventraveler.com)


Simply stated, the King James Bible uses Charity because in the Context of 1 Corinthians 13 Charity means an emotional endearment of compassion feelings of care and affection for a brother or sister in Christ within the Body of Christ, the Church in the administration of the GIFTS of THE SPIRIT. Nothing More, Nothing Less.  


Charity in the King James Bible 



The Highest form of God's Love 

even though the Greek word agape is used in 1

 Corinthians 13.

Charity in the full meaning of the context of 1 Corinthians 13 is an emotional feeling of a deep affectionate expression of genuine CARE.

False teachers always remove the context of 1 Corinthians 13 which is affection for one another IN THE BODY of Christ is first and foremost, especially when exercising SPIRITUAL GIFTS.

Jesus showed us a deeper love than Charity in John
John 21:15-17
King James Version

15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me *agape superlative highest form of LOVE of God) more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.*phileo (brotherly) He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?
*agape superlative highest form of LOVE of God) He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.*phileo (brotherly) He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? 
*agape superlative highest form of LOVE of God)Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee.*phileo (brotherly) Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Phileo - Brotherly Love

To understand the difference between BROTHERLY LOVE and CHARITY 

Look at these two English words to help:

Affection and Endearment (Charity)

Esteeming the true value of a brother or sister (Brethren) in Christ (Phileo)

We also must compare scriptures of John 21 above and the 

following below:


Strong's Number G5360 matches the Greek φιλαδελφία (philadelphia),
which occurs 6 times in 5 verses in the TR Greek.

 Rom 12:10

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; G5360 in honour preferring one another;


 1Th 4:9

But as touching brotherly love G5360 ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.


 Heb 13:1

Let brotherly love G5360 continue.


 1Pe 1:22

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, G5360 see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:


 2Pe 1:7

And to godliness brotherly kindness; G5360 and to brotherly kindness G5360 charity.

However, Charity is used in every instance in scripture especially the 1 Corinthians 13 examples as AFFECTIONATE CARING FEELINGS FOR the Brethren to be esteemed over the gifts of the spirit as in speaking in tongues.

YES Christians have a deep love and care of feelings for the Brethren because of the Holy Spirit in their lives but nevertheless this is an emotional expression of the SOUL and NOT the HIGHEST form of God’s love. If this were the case the King James Translators would not have used LOVE in John 21 when Jesus uses the SUPERLATIVE “EST” suffix. See my detailed study

Show me how we harmonize these CHARITY scriptures with What Paul tells Timothy and Titus as follows:


Christian love toward fellow Christians (the following are all 24 verses that have “charity”



Charity Oxford English Dictionary page 383; Vulgate Caritas. Affectionate among the brethren. The 1611 used love and charity but love 86 more times than Wycliff used from Vulgate to bring Charity as agape. AFFECTIONATE, FONDNESS, CARING. FEELING CARING.

Wyclif and the Rhemish version regularly rendered the Vulgate dilectio by 'love,' caritas by 'charity.' But the 16th c. Eng. versions from Tindale to 1611, while rendering agape sometimes 'love,' sometimes 'charity,' did not follow the dilectio and caritas of the Vulgate, but used 'love' more often (about 86 times), confining 'charity' to 26 passages in the Pauline and certain of the Catholic Epistles (not in I John), and the Apocalypse ....

EXAMPLE: Wycliff Romans 12:10 loving together the charity of brotherhood. Each come before to worship (the) other [Coming before together in honour];

King James Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

1 Corinthians 13 If I speak with tongues of men and of angels, and I have not charity, I am made as brass sounding, or a cymbal tinkling.

Tyndale: 1Though I spake with the tonges of me and angels and yet had no love I were eve as soundinge brasse: or as a tynklynge Cymball. 2

charity (n.)

late Old English, "benevolence for the poor," also "Christian love in its highest manifestation," from Old French charité "(Christian) charity, mercy, compassion; alms; charitable foundation" (12c.), from Latin caritatem (nominative caritas) "costliness; esteem, affection," from carus "dear, valued

The sense of "charitable foundation or institution" in English is attested by 1690s. The meaning "liberality in judging others or their actions" is from late 15c. A charity-school (1680s) educated (and sometimes housed and fed) poor children and was maintained by voluntary contributions or bequests.

also from 12c.

Latin caritas

Apart from this original meaning, charity is etymologically linked to Christianity, with the word originally entering the English language through the Old French word charité, which derived from the Latin caritas, a word commonly used in the Vulgate New Testament to translate the Greek word agape (ἀγάπη), a distinct form of love.

What is ‘Cariño’ from the Latin caritas in Spanish?

In Spanish, cariño is a word that is directly linked to love and affection. In general terms, cariño refers to a feeling. However, it’s also a term that Spaniards use as a way to call their loved ones. Additionally, its plural form cariños, refers to some types of displays of affection.

If referring to a feeling, cariño means ‘fondness’ or ‘affection’.

When used as a nickname, cariño can be translated as ‘darling’, ‘dear’ or ‘honey’.

The plural form cariños is a word that refers to a physical way of showing affection. It can be translated as ‘caresses’.
Vulgate manuscripts - Wikipedia

Though the Vulgate exists in many forms, a number of early manuscripts containing or reflecting the Vulgate survive today. Dating from the 8th century, the Codex Amiatinus is the earliest surviving manuscript of the complete Vulgate Bible. The Codex Fuldensis, dating from around 547, contains most of the … See more


The text of the Septuagint is contained in a few early, but not necessarily reliable, manuscripts. The best known of these are the Codex Vaticanus (B) and the Codex Sinaiticus (S), both dating from the 4th century ce, and the Codex Alexandrinus (A) from the 5th century. There are also numerous earlier papyrus fragments and many later manuscripts.

The lies and horrors presented in this link whereby over and over again they (unknown sources who use the NASB and Septuagint and Vulgate) insist Apage to Charity is Never used as an emotional feeling, but when you actually study the full meaning of Agape it is precisely an emotional feeling of brotherly Love. The Lie from HELL is that apage has always been taught by the Laodicean Church as GODLY LOVE and the emotional Brotherly Love of affection is the feeling but Godly love is SPIRITUAL of the Holy Spirit and for this precise reason the King James Translators as well as Tyndale used LOVE 86 more times than the VULGATE translation which Wycliff (the closet Jesuit )used.

The Joke of the Ages: John Wycliff and Martin Luther The Protestant Reformation.

Questions too hard to ask: Why didn’t Tyndale use Wycliff’s translation? Why was William Tyndale tortured and murdered by the Vatican but Wycliff and Luther were NOT???

The Wycliffe Bible, also known as the Wycliffite Bible, was indeed based on the Latin Vulgate. It was the first complete translation of the Bible into English and was believed to have been made under the direction or instigation of John Wycliffe, an English theologian and Oxford professor, during the period from approximately 1382 to 1395 1.

LOOK AT THIS PERVERSION BELOW HERE IN THE TRANSLATIONS: Compare to KING JAMES it is blasphemous: This kind of garbage feeble minded are fed as truth:

Love-Agape (Greek Word Study) | Precept Austin


Agape - 13v in the Septuagint

2 Samuel 13:15 Then Amnon hated her with a very great hatred; for the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. And Amnon said to her, "Get up, go away!"

Ecclesiastes 9:1 For I have taken all this to my heart and explain it that righteous men, wise men, and their deeds are in the hand of God. Man does not know whether it will be love or hatred; anything awaits him.
6 Indeed their love, their hate and their zeal have already perished, and they will no longer have a share in all that is done under the sun.

Song of Solomon 2:4 "He has brought me to his banquet hall, And his banner over me is love.
5 "Sustain me with raisin cakes, Refresh me with apples, Because I am lovesick.
7 "I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the gazelles or by the hinds of the field, That you do not arouse or awaken my love Until she pleases."

Song of Solomon 3:5 "I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, By the gazelles or by the hinds of the field, That you will not arouse or awaken my love Until she pleases."
10 "He made its posts of silver, Its back of gold And its seat of purple fabric, With its interior lovingly fitted out By the daughters of Jerusalem. (KJB says for the DOJ)
Song of Solomon 5:8 "I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, If you find my beloved, As to what you will tell him: For I am lovesick." (KJB says sick of love - huge difference * see note 1 below)
Song of Solomon 7:6 "How beautiful and how delightful you are, My love, with all your charms! (KJB says pleasant, for delights)
Song of Solomon 8:4 "I want you to swear, O daughters of Jerusalem, Do not arouse or awaken my love Until she pleases."(KJB until he please)

1 John
Chapter 4

1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

7Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

9In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

10Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

12No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

16And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

19We love him, because he first loved us.

20If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

21And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.


1. I am SICK WITH LOVE For my Shepherd My Lord Jesus Christ

SICK in H2470 = grieve (godly sorrow) Pierced - BORE A HOLE the spot to be drilled to make an indentation to accept the drill and the beginning of the drilling as the drill can easily slip out PIERCED WOUND - In context of SoS is a PIERCING PAIN because of the LOVE for our Shepherd and this piercing PAIN IS THE WORD BESEECH (request intervention from a sickness (grieving heart), PRAY, INTREAT.

THIS IS TRUE LOVE that Jesus used in the superlative with the King James suffix eth in John 21 in the TRUEST HIGHEST LOVE that Peter kept responding with LOVE and NOT LOVEST. See my detailed study in this that the Lord led me into 1 John Chapter 4 before I could leave for Vietnam. I had to understand LOVE that it was THE LORD’S PASSION HIS PIERCING GRIEF for the Lost that all could come to salvation.

THIS IS NOT THE SAME EXPRESSION OF LOVE SPOKEN OF BY PAUL IN 1 CORINTHIANS 13 that details how when using our spiritual gifts we must always work in the affection and care for our brethren.


TESTIMONY I must share because often people tell me I am hateful.

I could NOT CARE LESS about this accusation, but the Lord has given me an unction to TEACH WHAT REAL LOVE LOOKS LIKE:

On a 10 day fast in San Diego California That began in Lanai Hawaii at a 5 star resort at 3Am on December 5th 2005 to go to Vietnam. That LOVE was nothing I had ever experienced beyond expression that was a PIERCING PAIN. And the Object of that PIERCING PAIN was LOVE FOR JESUS CHRIST and My Lord gave that to me to seek the lost and share the True Gospel the True Jesus Christ and NOT the false gospel leaven of the Laodicean Church.

That same piercing pain was to REBUKE SHARPLY the false shepherds who were leading the feeble minded to the PIT with them as the scribes (theologians) Pharisees (religious leaders so called pastors)

Matthew 23:15
King James Version

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Song of Songs 2:5, 5:8

Song of Solomon 5:8

“I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him, that I am sick of love.”

King James Version (KJV)

Later we see these daughters of Jerusalem as well as the WATCHMEN (The Laodicean Church driven by the false doctrine of their false shepherds) attack the Shulamite (The Bride, the True Church of Philadelphia).

NOTE: Look for forthcoming study on The Song of Solomon.

I am (sick) verb of (preposition Looking at OF

Cause = answers why: The EFFECT of the Object Love on the verb Sick (in context of a piercing pain). In other words the piercing pain is affected by the Object LOVE hence the reason for the PAIN.

Also the Result = How something the piercing pain is impacted by BECAUSE OF DUE TO LOVE.

The Opposite is:

LOVE SICK = UNREQUITED LOVE. Which causes FEAR Because of Romans 1:18-24, see 1 John 4.

LOVE SICK = A compound noun whereby Love as a noun = Sick as a noun means A person is afflicted by Love

afflict (v.)

late 14c., "to cast down" (a sense now obsolete), from Old French aflicter, from Latin afflictare "to damage, harass, torment," frequentative of affligere (past participle afflictus) "to dash down, overthrow," from ad "to" (see ad-) + fligere (past participle flictus) "to strike."

This is reconstructed to be from PIE root *bhlig- "to strike" (source also of Greek phlibein "to press, crush," Czech blizna "scar," Welsh blif "catapult"). The weakened or transferred meaning "to trouble in body or mind, harass, distress," is attested from 1530s. Related: Afflicted; afflicting.

affliction (n.)

c. 1300, affliccioun, "misery, sorrow, pain, distress" (originally especially "self-inflicted pain, self-mortification, religious asceticism"

ascetic (adj.)

1640s, "practicing rigorous self-denial as a religious exercise," from Latinized form of Greek asketikos "rigorously self-disciplined, laborious," from asketēs "monk, hermit," earlier "skilled worker, one who practices an art or trade," especially "athlete, one in training for the arena," from askein "to exercise, train," especially "to train for athletic competition, practice gymnastics, exercise," perhaps originally "to fashion material, embellish or refine material."

The Greek word was applied by the stoics to the controlling of the appetites and passions as the path to virtue and was picked up from them by the early Christians. The figurative sense of "unduly strict or austere" also is from 1640s. Related: Ascetical (1610s).

also from 1640s

ascetic (n.)

1650s, "one rigorous in self-denial," especially as an act of religious devotion; 1670s, Ascetic, "one of the early Christians who retired to the desert to live solitary lives of meditation, self-denial, and prayer," from ascetic (adj.).




unrequited (adjective)

(of a feeling, especially love) not returned or rewarded:
"he's been pining with unrequited love"

Requite - To return with the Like - Oxford English Dictionary page 2504

From Repay - repay = GIVE IN RETURN

mid-15c., repaien, "pay back, refund," from Old French repaier, repaiier, "pay back, give in return,"

Unrequited = unrescued Oxford English Dictionary page 3535

Hence why the UNIVERSALISTS want to believe Hell is not for humans. The know by Romans 1:18-24 what's coming and they are TERRIFIED!

LOOK AT Rodney Belieu the Reprobate False Teacher leading people to HELL WITH LOVE

REBUKING Rodney Beaulieu at Grace Bible Church GBC (thethirdheaventraveler.com

While working on the blog to joseph had a major huge revelation on love while addressing his completely distorted interpretation on 1 Corinthians 13 Charity, which led to 1 John 4 :10 which led to SofS 2:5, 5:8.

Make no mistake 1 Corinthians 13 is Paul's teaching that the SPIRITUAL GIFTS MUST BE GOVERNED IN LOVE the care for the BRETREN (NOT FALSE TEACHERS). If joseph would actually study 1Corinthians 13:4-7 KJB he would realize he was easily provoked, seeking evil to curse my work when I came in Love, behaved unseemly, and is proud and willing to study to rejoice in the TRUTH

It is most clear this led me to understand joseph is afflicted from not receiving the LOVE he yearns FOR because he seeks in in man and NOT the MASTER.

He yearns as the daughters of Jerusalem the fakes who want to be sick of love which is true love of the SHULAMITE - The TRUE BRIDE. Sick of LOVE = love is the object of whereas love sick is Unrequited Love. 1 John 4:4-13.
