    It's a deed. Something one does.

    I think the question is, is love more than an emotion? Natrually, we obseerve it as being an emotion and a force.

    In and of itself, does love exist independent of mankinds emotions? I say it does.

    So the question is, does it actually exist or is it simply the result of a complex chemical reactions in the brain? After all, you can't see it or study it or measure it, so does it really exist or are we fooling ourselves?

    I'm glad you surrounded it with 'apostrophs', perhaps it is a sarcasm.

    Because god in the old testament is not showing much love to the humanity. It's more about revenche and educate by punishment.

    When is a total genocide (exept for 8 survivors) denoted 'love'? Did Hitler love jews?

    Which reinforces that God is triune in eternity past before He created man.

    "And now, glorify Me along with Yourself, Father, with the glory I had with you before the world was." (John 17:5)

    For God's intrinsic nature to be divine love, He must have had love within His triune being from eternity. Love is His nature.

    I actually think you have to decide,and then abide in the faith of your decision. Like if you decide "'Love' is real" , then you have to wait(through thick and thin)and one day,you will know what "God is Love" REALLY means. Until then it is just human speculation.Worthy speculation,but speculation none the less.

    No its not sarcasm, but I can see the angle. Pain and torture are certainly not the first thing you think of when you think of 'Love' , but then again I think it depends on your perspective, and in my perspective,where there is no hell, everything that happens , happens for a reason. And that reason is evolution. (Note: I do not use the Darwinian version of the term 'evolution'😉

    God must be love, especially considering he didn't send you to hell for your blasphemies, yet.
