In this passage the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit one God in three divine persons (The Trinity) is talking about love.

However,you are looking at it love is an essential key to humanity. At a young age, many of us hearpeoples say love your neighbor and hate your enemy. This is not how one should live his or her life, Jesus does not want his peoples living like this. Instead, he wants his people tolove everyone including your enemies and neighbors.

God created Adam and Eve and allowed them to live in the Garden of Eden, and they were the first humans to exercise love. Adam and Eve did love one another because after the serpent deceives Eve to eat the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, she persuades Adam also to eat the fruit as well, only love can make someone do that.
