- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
13:13 Faith, hope, love - Are the sum of perfection on earth; love alone is the sum of perfection in heaven.
1Co 13:13 But now abideth faith, hope, charity. These three shall survive. They are eternal. They continue to exist in the church, and shall not fail in its glorified state. As long as the redeemed saint shall have future ages before him, so long will trust in God and hope give them brightness, while love itself is the very atmosphere of the divine life. The greatest of these is charity. Love is the greatest because it glorifies both faith and hope, sanctifies every faculty and Christian grace, is the very moving impulse of the gospel, and is the one quality that is divine. "God is love" (1Jo 4:8).

There is a difference in modern meaning between Charity and Love but reading 1611 KJV we can be flexible and go a bit further and accept the symbiosis Love fills in the empty spaces in our hearts Isn t this the purpose to read the Bible

charity is giving to the poor and needed helping those that are in need Loving your neighbor as yourself give and God will give it back to you Youre reward are stored in heavenly places not only when we reach heaven God desire for the saints that we live in good health wealth the lender and not the borrow and our cup running over if we will do the will of the father and his will is that we love one another if we can only love and deny ourself then we can ask anything of the father and it shall be given unto us by faith

Charity is long suffering no envy meekness not the way the world use it as collecting money

Hope is for things not seen,when they are seen no need of hope,we hope to be in heaven but we have not reached hence we hope for it.Faith is a substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen.We have not seen heaven,by faith we hope it is meant for us but when we reach there, no need of both hope and faith.Love or charity are not only for his life but because God is Love Love will continue in heaven because of His presence. Therefore Charity ,hope and faith are vehicles to lead us to our promised land but only LOVE will cross to eternity.

1 Corinthians 13:13, I understand catholism changed the word love for charity to receive more tithes to their religion.So how is the 1611 KJversion the inerrant word of God when the word "charity" replaced the word with "love"?

Faith is for now, hope is for the future and love is for always

Chap 13 verse 13; God wants us to read and study the entire chapters of 13 and 14. God's revelation is inclusive.
(All) the verses in His word are divinely inspired. John 3:16 is a commonly used verse, but verse 17,John 3:17 completes verse 16 as does verses 18 through 21 of John chapter three!

To me, there is a difference between "Love" and "Charity" Just as there is with Faith...But are one in our Lord Jesus Christ and Father, Son, Holy Spirit is ONE.
