- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
Joh 13:35 By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples. The love and self-sacrifice of Christians has done more to extend the name of Christ than argument. In the early ages, heathen were wont to say: "See how these Christians love one another".

I know the different translations make it clearer for us who are Old English challenged, but having love one "TO" another is different than having love "FOR" one another. "To" means the love is demonstrated, actioned upon, not just in your heart. It requires we show this love through our actions, live the love of Christ outward.

It is such a wonderful verse. Sometimes we get things mixed up. It does not say "by our doctrine" (though that is important) or by our scholarship (also important). The test to the world’s is our love. We can disagree and still love. We can misunderstand and still love.

Love is an action verb. Love is observable. It is not affection, it is not feeling, it is not compassion, though all these attributes may accompany love, they are not observable actions.
