I am not surprised, many people are more interested in what they want to see instead of what God wants them to see.

It is interesting that you are disputing fairly standard interpretations of 1 Cor 13 to say that it does not mean God's love. I find that people's knowledge of the Bible on this forum, in general, is poor. So poor in fact, that it suits many to deny even what is commonly believed in Christianity.
Don't twist what I said. I was just pointing out your mistake saying "apape" means God's love. The verses I referred to prove it.

1 Cor 13 is talking about God's love. Not because of "agape" but the whole context. The "person" is not in the "agape" but the "God's" in the context. We simply know the kind of love mentioned by Paul there could not come from anyone else but God.
