In Matthew 5:44;
ITB: But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
KJV: But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them the which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
GNT: Εγὼ δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀγαπᾶτε τοὺς ἐχθροὺς ὑμῶν, εὐλογεῖτε τούς καταρωμένους ὑμᾶς, καλῶς ποιεῖτε τοῖς μισοῦσιν ὑμᾶς καὶ προσεύχεσθε ὑπὲρ τῶν ἐπηρεαζόντων ὑμᾶς καὶ διωκόντων ὑμᾶς,
In this verse, the Lord Jesus gave us the command to love our enemies with love agapate which is the root word of AGAPE / agapao. If God gives such an order, should we as human beings capable of agape love our neighbor, in this verse in particular, to our enemies. Means that humans are capable of agape love of neighbor, even to our enemies.

The focus on who provides the love, and the word “love of God” should not be separated, because if the focus is on the word “love (agape)” the man-was able to give to others. Agape does not do impurity and sin.
