== Strange change of perspective ==
''For God so loved us that He gave His Only Son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. ''
In the gospel of John, the first person is used only in direct speech (see John 3:2 etc.). What you are doing is known as ''breaking the fourth wall'': suddenly you are including us, the reader, together with the narrator who otherwise tells the story. To do so in a ''translation'' seems to be wrong, that's something for an explanatory interpretation.
